Central Michigan University Reviews

I have enjoyed my program very much. The other professors are encouraging, yet, challenging in just the way I need it to grow as a student. I love learning online as well to eliminate the travel of getting to a class. I have learned much and look forward to graduating in the Spring. I had originally gotten my associates degree and worked as a nurse early in my 20's. I have raised my 10 children and now want to move into some administrative work with the experience I've gained. I love the field of health care and look forward to having an opportunity to make an impact here in the U.S. and globally. I have gone to the country of Myanmar now for 3 months at a time every year the past 8 years. I have seen great disparities there in health care and my hope is to be able to go and make a difference working and helping lead them into a better tomorrow for their people by working as a nurse/health care leader. CMU opened this program and it has been great to be a part of!

The RN to BSN program has been a great program with a Director who comes from Nigeria but has much experience starting nursing programs in various colleges. The professors are helpful, encouraging, and I have enjoyed my learning very much!
I love the CMU Special Education Masters program! I am so happy they have it offered as an online program now, it makes it so much more convenient for me with such a busy schedule as a full time teacher, working as a waitress on the side, and running a mentoring program I helped to start at the school I teach at.
