Alumni Comments: M.S. in Nursing

“I am very pleased by the education I received at IUP. The master’s program fully prepared me for my current position. I had never even thought of working in a simulation center prior to attending IUP, and I absolutely love what I do now. The faculty was extremely knowledgeable and challenged me to broaden my view and understanding of our wonderful profession. As a wife, mother, and working nurse educator, I was enabled through this program to obtain my master’s degree while continuing to live my busy life.”

“Convenient, one day per week, only one class at a time; top-notch professors that are always there to help and answer questions.”
—Patricia Meintel, M.S., R.N.
Nursing Instructor
Mount Aloysius College

“The Monroeville campus allowed me to attend classes close to home, and the Friday afternoon/evening class offering really worked for me. The instructor/student ratio was small and really enhanced my learning and provided close attention. The cohort structure provided additional support and camaraderie as we progressed through the program together. I would highly recommend IUP’s graduate program to others.”
