What Our Healthcare Students Have to Say

Dana Moore | MS in Nursing with a Specialization in FNP | South University, Online, 2022

“The curriculum at South University was very difficult. But I think it will successfully prepare me for my career field because in order for me to be a safe and knowledgeable provider for patients, that’s what I needed — something to push me and challenge me.”

Lakisha Fountain | Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) | South University, Tampa, 2022

“The program was very rigorous… packed with a lot of core content that I really need to help prepare for the board exam or even to help prepare when we were out in the field during clinicals.”
