Love it! Absolutely women empowering. The school makes you feel so safe and the administrators and security are well connected so if something does happen, which it happen to me, at least 2 different people from different department will make sure you are okay and if they can help

My experience at MSMU has been amazing everyone is kind and excited for their futures. The professors and actually know your name and care for your academic success, financial situations, and are big on staying healthy. Both campus are beautiful and have such a wonderful vibe that makes us all leaders!
My experience at the mount was very enjoyable. Stressful but what else do you expect from completing a nursing program? The mount gives its nursing students plenty of great opportunities. Children's hospital LA was where most of the cohort got student nurse jobs while in nursing school after our pediatric rotation at CHLA. The clinical sites are inclined toward student learning since they are LA based teaching hospitals most of the time. The skills lab instructors are also great and give you real life expertise since they have years of experience. I recommend coming to MSMU if you want to be challenged. Lastly, depending on which program you choose to attend, you may be able to do weekend or evening classes that is really helpful for working students.
