Hear From Students In Our Nursing School

The teachers and administration of Arizona College really do care about us. In my first month, the Dean had a 1-on-1 meeting with me to see how I was feeling. I don’t think I could find that level of support anywhere else.

Isabella Berry, Nursing Program Class of 2022

Throughout my life, I struggled to do well in school. But the faculty of Arizona College took the time to sit down with me and provide the support I needed. Happy to say that I’ve graduated the BSN program with a 3.7 GPA!

Melissa L. Weir

Dean of Nursing

What inspired you to pursue a career in nursing education?

“As a student Nurse I was fortunate to have exceptional Nurse Faculty Members who instilled the virtue of ‘lifelong learner’ as a professional Nurse. As a practicing Nurse, I gravitated to professional development and assumed the role of Clinical Educator. It seemed the more I learned and taught my colleagues, the better outcomes were for our patients and families. Having exceptional Nurse Faculty throughout my nursing education journey provided inspiration for me to eventually pursue nursing academia. Nursing education is the foundation for nursing excellence, and I am fortunate to be able to share that with aspiring student nurses. “
