The nursing program is fabulous!
I would suggest living off campus though, the Women's dormitory is too strict.
Walla Walla University is an excellent University to attend if you are passionate about your relationship with Christ and are serious about getting top notch education in not only your desired field, but also in religion and other life applicable areas. They are very well known all over the country for their School of Engineering, which is the reason I am there, and I have to say I am very impressed with their organization of classes, schedules, and events not to mention how excellent the Professors are. Most of them have their Doctorate and are knowledgable well above their years. If this sounds like a University that fits you, I encourage you to give it a shot for yourself and take a tour here sometime. You won't regret it!
