Start Your Journey to BECOME A NURSE with Nightingale College
“Nightingale has provided me with the exceptional education. I needed to pursue my career dreams. The staff and instructors have been supportive, encouraging, and always willing to help, in a way that I’ve never experienced in a college before. Making the decision to attend Nightingale has been one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made!”

“I was able to start classes a week after I took the entrance exam and graduate 16 months later. It was a lot of work but the small classes encourage getting to know and receive support from fellow learners and instructors. I love that clinical experience starts the first semester and that they work hard to give you experience from a variety of nursing professionals including long term care, mental health, and hospital experience from maternity and pediatric to med-surg to emergency nursing. Highly recommend to anyone who’s in a hurry to change their life and not afraid to work towards that goal.”

“I just started at Nightingale College and am in my fifth week. It has been quite a whirlwind, but it has been satisfying to finally begin my journey towards career advancement. I have been looking for a nursing program for a couple of years now that would allow me to get back into academics without repeating a lot of coursework and this was one of the many reasons why I chose Nightingale. I also have a family and work; therefore, I needed a program that would allow some degree of flexibility and their online didactic learning setting affords me this opportunity. I am excited to start clinicals next week and am glad I found a program that allows me to get hands-on clinical experience locally.”

“Nightingale College has been an excellent place to complete my nursing degree. The staff is positive and goal oriented, and have no problem going out of their way to give you the help you need. I live out of state so being able to do the didactic work online makes completing the course work that much easier. The nursing lab is well run and the clinical sites are picked to enhance our experiences as student nurses… would recommend to anyone!”

“I enjoyed the time I spent in the Nightingale College of Nursing program. I was able to achieve my goal of graduating with my ADN in 20 months (because I was missing 1 prerequisite course). There are 5 prerequisite requirements as opposed to the several offered at my local university. If you are a self-motivated professional, you’ll do well at Nightingale. You will need to be able to keep deadlines and study appropriately as well as be technologically efficient. Because the branch I learned at was new, we still had kinks to work out throughout my program. However, I am here today as a PROUD Registered Nurse. Any kink I dealt with was well worth this goal.”

“I cannot say enough good things about this program. From day 1, they have bent over backwards to make sure I have everything I need to succeed. Yes, it costs a lot of money. Yes, you have to be proactive in your learning to succeed. They are not your parents and they won’t be calling to remind you that you have to study or have assignments due. But if you need help, they are a email or call away. They have addressed every concern, big or small, within hours! The Professors are AMAZING! They really want you to succeed in their class and will spend any needed extra time with you if need be. All you have to do is ask.”
