alumni testimonial

One of the deciding factors for me to come to RCU was the opportunity to be in the nursing program while playing basketball. This had its challenges and required full commitment, but my teachers and coaches were always in communication and willing to work with me to make sure I succeeded in both. Both nursing and basketball bettered my character, work ethic and time management. It was rewarding to be able to pursue the career I am so passionate about and play the game I love.
