"I am enrolled in an accelerated RN to FNP nursing program, requiring nonstop motivation and enthusiasm! The professors are passionate about nursing and support students fully on their path. The spirit of nursing and helping people is at the heart of Samuel Merritt and what it offers. Also, the simulation labs are outstanding and provide a unique learning experience."

"Samuel Merritt is a private, not-for-profit university with high tuition costs, which deters many students from applying. Though I do wish costs were lower, I do not regret attending Samuel Merritt. The school's reputation (among the nursing community; I can't speak for other programs) is excellent and improves job opportunities. The faculty is extremely approachable and attentive to the students' needs. I created a personal bond with almost all of my professors because of the friendly, supportive atmosphere that is created by faculty. There are also great health, financial and career resources available on campus. Yes, the tuition is high but the quality of education can't be beat. I feel prepared to enter the field of nursing with confidence that I have received proper training from a highly acclaimed institution."

"Samuel Merritt University is a prestigious school. Although the price you pay is high, you also get what you pay for. There is much support for students including, but not limited to: academic success, tutoring, mentoring and other quirks. The only downfall to being a student is the price and lack of scholarships or financial support."

"I am currently in the second online Nurse Case Management masters cohort. I also received my BSN from SMU. The new online master's program is rigorous and convenient. A student support adviser will assist you throughout the program. SMU worked with me to set-up a convenient payment plan. Comfort with technology is essential for the online program. My classmates are from all over the U.S. and are fantastic. I am looking forward to my precept placement next year."

"Good school education but most of it is self study"
