Francis Marion University Reviews
Francis Marion University (FMU) offers a wide variety of undergraduate degrees in the School of Business, School of Education, and School of Health Sciences. The University also offers graduate programs in business, education, psychology and nursing, and Physician Assistant Studies. I pursued the BSN program at FMU because the whole program was offered online. This allowed me as a parent to still have time with my family and be able to work a fulltime job. The facility and staff were very supportive, available, and ready to help in any way possible. I am now pursing my Family Nurse Practioner Graduate Degree and will began this fall. The majority of the full-time faculty hold doctoral or terminal degrees. My personal professors cheerfully shared their knowledge, skills, and time. I am confident I will receive the same attentive help as I have in the past. This program is a hybrid program with one day of class time and the rest of the program in available on line. The one day a week class is offered the same day for the whole program which allows you to plan ahead, if you chose to continue working during the course of study. I have found FMU to offer an excellent learning environment, small enough to give students individualized attention from faculty and staff, and large enough to let students grow their prospects. The college is located close to downtown Florence which offers many outlets of entertainment for students when they need a break from studying. I am excited and looking forward to The Luther F. Carter Center for Health Sciences that will be opening this fall. It will exemplify the forthcoming of health and medical education at FMU and in the Pee Dee. The Center will accommodate FMUs Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Education Program, the new Physicians Assistant Program, Clinical Psychology Masters Program, and USCs 3rd- and 4th- year Medical Student Clinical Programs. Students will find that anyone can fit in at FMU. There are diverse cultures, races, programs, groups, and ages. There is a place for everyone at FMU.
