Yes it is far away, but I would say that it was worth it. Some may say that they don't get enough nursing courses, but that is their fault; they make their own class schedules. UMFK is unique, just by the location; you are able to view and become accustomed to different ways. Everyone is very nice up here and are willing to have a conversation or help you out. One of my favorite things to do up here, even though I study constantly, is to go to the Snow Dog Races in the Spring and go over to Canada to go out with friends and shop. There are other things to do up here like ice skating, hiking, fishing, hunting, snow shoeing, ATV and snowmobile riding, skiing, and more if you go out and find things. I would defiantly choose this school again if I started all over just because where I want to be later in life (career), this school will teach and try their hardest to help me get to where I want to be. They care and are willing to help however they can.
