Elmhurst has a really solid nursing program, and I like the small-school environment that it offers. I chose nursing because I really enjoy helping people. I think that's my purpose in life, to serve others.
It's a lot of work, but you will succeed if you put in the time and effort. It's a great program. The instructors have all been amazing. I would recommend Elmhurst to anyone.
My residency experience has been really great. You do things in repetition, so you can improve on your skills and strengthen the skill sets that you'll need when you get to clinicals. The hands-on approach is very beneficial.
