"Did my BSN and my MSN at JUSON. Outstanding faculty, supportive environment and fast paced classes. Balanced it all while working and came out to land my dream job as a faculty member. I highly recommend JUSON for the self motivated well prepared RN student. My only regret is not having done this sooner."

"The degree that I recently obtained from Jacksonville University has made a positive impact on my nursing career. Post completion of my BSN degree I was offered a management position with a significant increase in pay. The skills that I learned from Jacksonville have prepared me for this management position. Obtaining my BSN inspired me to continue my education further to obtain my MSN-FNP. I never had aspired to continue a higher education eight years ago yet the positive experience that I had provoked me to think critically and exercise new skill sets that I have learned. I am excited to pursue this new found dream. I encourage all others to exercise their mind and pursue furthering their education."

"I attended the online Bachelor's program at Jacksonville University. When I inquired about the program I was assigned an advisor who walked me step by step though the admission and financial aid processes. He was fabulous. He had an in-depth understanding of these processes, having that information made it easy for me to make decisions about enrollment. Taking classes through the school of nursing was super easy. The lectures are online and you can listen to them when you are ready. Deadlines were reasonable. They weren't there to stress you out but to make sure you learned. Professors responded promptly to questions. The blackboard system was easy to learn, I was up on going in no time at all. The ability to interact with classmates was easy and encouraging. I would highly recommend this school to anyone contemplating an online degree program."

"Loved my time at Jacksonville University for my BSN. In fact, I'm preparing to start my MSN currently. The 8 week classes are tough, but fair and I felt they adequately prepared me for my degree. In addition to preparing me for my role in nursing. I truly have no complaints about the online classes and processes as the technology was easy to use, the books were reasonable, the teachers were fair and provided excellent instruction. Overall, I would strongly recommend attending Jacksonville for a BSN."

"Located along the bank of the St. John's River, surrounded by century old oak trees, along with professional and knowledgeable staff, it no question why JU is referred to as The Harvard of the South. Students graduate with the skills necessary to succeed in their chosen career path or advance their education. JU supports an unsurpassable learning environment including a writing lab, tutoring services, mentor support and so forth. Students can broaden their horizons in a study abroad class offered for over 20 different countries. I have gained not only a top notch education, but friendships and support groups that will last a lifetime. Go Fins!"

"The program at Jacksonville University is really good. The advisors who help you sign up for classes and help design your class schedule really take the time understand and work with your schedule and rigors of life. The classes were manageable and I learned a lot. The instructors were always available for questions and they really seemed to care about their students."

"The campus at Jacksonville University was beautiful. It was always so relaxing to sit under the giant oak trees and study. The atmosphere was small and intimate, which made it easier to participate in class. I would recommend this college to anyone interested in the arts or sciences since it is a liberal arts college."

"Jacksonville University's MBA program is continuously growing. The faculty and administration at JU are friendly and extremely helpful; it is a small school so they know all the students which enhances the educational value of the program. The only con of the school is that financial aid and scholarship opportunities are lacking and the surrounding area is not safe."

"Jacksonville University's MBA program has been on the rise for the past several years and is continuing to grow at an exponential rate. The faculty and administration is unlike any other in their care for their students. They genuinely want to see their students succeed and will help them in any way needed. The MBA program is ranked in the top 50 internationally. The only cons of the MBA program at Jacksonville University is the lack of financial help for graduate students at the university."

"I've just finished my 4th MSN course and I honestly haven't learned much. The concept is that the instructors have doctoral level degrees. The problem is that so far, not a single instructor has done ANY teaching. There are prefabricated lessons. You respond to the assignments by posting on a discussion board. You are also required to write research papers. There are no tests. Teachers are supposed to be available via email but don't hold your breath waiting for a response. When your papers are graded, you don't get them back. You may get a couple of sentences on a post called "professor's comments" but you aren't getting a paper back so can't improve since you can't see what you did wrong. I am still trying to figure out why this school is ranked so highly. So far, I'm really not impressed."

"The pros of being in the graduate program at Jacksonville University is the multiple graduate programs that they offer. JU offers a 12 month full time daytime accelerated program, a flex program, as well an executive MBA program for students. This gives students the opportunities to work their easily find the best MBA program for their schedule. The school also offers four MBA concentrations; management, accounting, marketing, and economics. The only con about JU's MBA program is that the school does not offer students many scholarships at the graduate level. There are multiple assistantships however it is hard for working graduate students to apply for these assistantships."

"The faculty and administration of my graduate program are extremely student centered. Snacks and meals are included in my tuition which is really convenient (one less thing to worry about). The con of my program is that I travel from another city to participate in it. However, that also shows the quality of the program since I am willing to travel, by plane, to be a part of this program."

"One of the issue is the lack of participants sometimes. Some of the cohort programs offered off campus gets canceled sometimes due to lack of applicants. I would encourage stronger advertisement for the school because the school itself and the graduate program offered at Jacksonville University are excellent."

"Thus, for my experience at Jacksonville University Online (JUSON) has been great I have been able to incorporate the theoretical knowledge into work. The Professor are always available for virtue hours if needed and your emails are responded to in an proper time. If you need help there are study groups rooms that can be arrange or you just post your question on the discussion board. I would Personally recommend JUSON to anyone."
