I chose the WVU School of Nursing because it is the most prestigious program in the state. I would not trade my program, classmates, and nursing faculty for anything. If you are looking for a program that is going to invest in you, advocate for your success, and cheer you on throughout your nursing journey, this is the program that will do that.

When I got to college, nursing was what I interested in. When I thought about my role models when I was younger, the strongest women I knew were nurses, and I love that caring is one of the most essential elements in being a nurse.
