Pursuing my RN-BSN online with Methodist University was an educational experience unlike any other. The flexibility of this program is fantastic! It allowed me to complete my assignments while continuing to work full-time. My MU courses really helped me develop a more professional mindset, and the confidence to be a leader. Each professor, without fail, wants every student to succeed and is keenly interested in the learning styles of their students.
