I completed the RN to BSN program through Clarkson as a distance student. I had a great experience. All staff members at this college, both educators and office staff, were highly competent and professional.

I like that Clarkson College is a small private school. The professors know you by name and are very helpful! I’ve made great relationships with my professors enough that they said I can use them as a reference.
The online classes were great. This school uses canvas which I found easy to navigate. Every single teacher was extremely accessible which you don’t always get with online classes.
