I love the school and the people who attend alongside myself. I have gone to a few different schools over the years but I have stuck with National because I like the military tuition discount and the curriculum. I am challenged in the coursework and reading requirements. I have always taken online/distant learning courses through NU, and between work, home-life and schoolwork, I am certainly challenged. I would recommend this school to everyone!

During my college education, I was employed full-time in healthcare and a full-time student. I can honestly tell you that National University block program with one-month courses is what allowed me to receive a Bachelors in Public Health and encouraging me to go back to school! Thank you , NU I hope all students appreciate the unique system you offer .
National University is a school that allows Clark County School District employees or any student a chance to full fill a college degree at a fast pace. It helps employees of the Clark County School District, as myself, become a licensed teacher with the convenience of taking classes online. I, Kaira Mendez, am a full time single mom and employee. The fact that I am able to complete courses online from the comfort of my home gives me ease in not missing any time with my children. National University works with the students very well in helping them organize their classes, setting them up with financial aid, or any matter. I would recommend any one interested in starting their college experience to attend National University.
