“Alfred State is a good school for nursing because of the support you get here as a student. Also, the clinical and hands-on experiences are really helpful.”

When Valerie Davis decided to go back to college for nursing, she discovered that Alfred State’s program was the right fit for her.

Valerie was drawn to the program because of its affordability and also because she has friends who are Alfred State nursing alumni.

“They always have great things to say about the program and they are excellent nurses now.”

Once she became a student, Valerie was able to see for herself what makes Alfred State’s nursing program special, whether it’s the flexibility of the curriculum or the helpfulness of the professors.

“They’re really supportive and they want to see you succeed.”

Another component of the nursing program that Valerie enjoys is being able to gain real-world, hands-on learning experience both in labs and in outside settings such as nursing homes and hospitals.

“You learn so many skills in a short amount of time. It’s just amazing.”

Valerie, who is looking to become a family nurse practitioner once she graduates, definitely feels that Alfred State is preparing her well for her career.
