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!

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.
