Shenandoah University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
Phenomenal teaching. Committed and unwavering staff pushed students to reach maximum potential. Teaching methods reinforced real life scenarios to force early medical minds to think critically and adapt to changes. Teaching methods also promoted a high degree of independence which forced students to get out of their comfort zone, take the leap, gain confidence, and succeed.
It was a great school! I had a diverse range of experiences and my professors were very willing to work with my need for a diverse range of studies. I would highly recommend SU!
Like all advanced nursing programmes, Shenandoah University's had its faults. Mainly, difficulty with providing sufficient clinical sites and organizational annoyances. That said, this is a battle every institution must fight, and I felt confident that SU worked hard on my behalf, and ultimately provided me with an education that allowed me to find a job and more importantly, feel prepared for it. Of course you cannot learn everything in school, but the attitude of passion for care providing and nursing excellence was apparent and contagious. Ideally when you are seeking an advanced degree you start out passionate about your subject, but the personal experience that the staff creates for the students delivers the message of personal responsibility to achieve, and also the confidence that those who forged the path before you also stand beside you. You begin to consider yourself a colleague, not a student. To me, that made all the difference. So, despite the occasional moments of frustration during the process, hindsight is always clearer, and only later do you appreciate how much your school has done for you when you step out into the real world and put the passion into practice.
