Bellarmine RN 11/14/2018

Bellarmine University's BSN program is top-notch. In the Louisville area it is very prestigious. If you are up against another person for a job and the employer finds out you're a Bellarmine grad you've definitely got a leg up on the competition. The student to professor ratio is ideal. The professors and program really want you to succeed.
