What our students say:

“I have been a nurse in China for ten years. I felt that my insufficient knowledge about nursing research was preventing me from providing the best quality nursing care for my patients, so I decided to return to university – my independent learning and critical thinking skills have been greatly improved. The university has encouraged me to have a new dream and have the courage to chase it.”
