I have been in the pursuit of my MN degree for 2 years. I am beyond pleased; faculty and employees are great and respond promptly to my queries . I would recommend this program to any busy nurse out there who would like to continue their education, but cannot b/c of the constraints of balance of work and home. This is not a walk in the park either, you must be organized, dedicated and stay ontop of your work .

I had an amazing experience at Athabasca U! I was able to finish my graduate degree in nursing, which was fully online and keep my full-time job. I did not lose any pay from work, or any seniority at work. I only had to work around taking my vacation/stat days off, and needed to do homework in my spare time, usually on weekends. Although, it was challenging to juggle my time, I found my professors to be fair and understanding, and I could always get the support when needed. I felt that I made the best decision for my career by choosing a online degree, and it has made me a more rounded person, and it opened a lot of doors for me! I would recommend AU for any busy working professional!!!
