Graduation Year: 2018
"The Capella University on-line program is excellent. My course of study included the Guidepath way; this worked for me because I am an older student who needed the assurance that someone would be there to "guide" me through the on-line process. In particular, the complimentary trial course sealed the deal, because it gave an introduction to the LMS of Blackboard. A user-friendly product, which boosted my confidence level, and allowed me to attain the MSN in Nursing Education at my own pace. I looked forward to each new semester, the discussion posts, the assigned projects, and learning the current issues facing nurses and nursing education. This was the "magic ticket" for me in pursuing my career goal of becoming a Director of Nursing in a local Nursing School. Periodically, an adviser would call and check on me; we would talk about the education path, and if there were any anticipated needs from my end. Financial Aid, was well explained, and I had no billing issues to contend with. Most facilitators were seasoned nursing professionals who offered a lot of guidance and experience. All in all, I worked hard for three years, hit all the high points, and graduated with honors. It was a positive experience, and I was sad to see it end. At some point, I may consider the DNP program. I would look at Capella University, first--because of the positive outcomes attained. I am proud to have the Capella University degree in Nursing Education hanging on my office wall."
