This university is beautiful, diverse, and accepting. It is a private Catholic school, yet they are very open and accepting of all walks of life including other religious backgrounds, the LGBTQI community, etc. The nursing school is extremely welcoming and accommodating, and work with the students to help them succeed versus "weeding out the weak" like some programs do. The only downside is it is very expensive to attend.
