Student Testimonials

No Waiting List

Students who enroll in the Nursing program as first semester freshmen are admitted under a direct admit policy which states that students will be admitted first to the professional component as long as they meet all admission requirements. Your spot is guaranteed.

“Having worked around the globe as a travel nurse as well as for this region’s only facility with a Level 1 trauma center both as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner, I can say with confidence that the nursing education we at Spring Hill provide is unparalleled. Our cutting-edge tools, including those in our simulation lab, provide student nurses with a next-level immersion that will catapult them ahead of their competition as they enter the workplace as new graduates.”

Assistant Professor and Chair of the Division of Nursing at Spring Hill College 

“Thirty-five years of nursing education has taught me the importance of student focused education. Every activity and every class that we plan centers on what is best for our nursing students. It is a pleasure to work with faculty that understand how important our students are to us and give so sacrificially to be sure they get the very best. It is an honor to work with this group and the very best nursing students around. What an awesome team to accomplish production of the most outstanding nurses for our future.”
