I wouldn't choose any other place to get my nursing degree. Program only takes 2.5 years to get your BSN from beginning to the end. Very supportive friends that soon become your family away from home. Also SWAU has a diverse student population that really promotes cultural awareness. Faculty and staff very supportive, helpful, and friendly. Everyone here is like a family!
Review Your College
Southwestern is extremely welcoming. The atmosphere is refreshing there. The spiritual experience is like no other. Everyone knows everyone and at Southwestern, you're apart of a great big family. It's truly amazing.
Southwestern Adventist University is a great school. Wonderful teachers who would help you pass with good grades, friendly environment with nice people, musically inclined environment, and people that would always pray for you when you are sad, broken and overwhelmed.
