The two-year ASN program—the reason I chose Aquinas—is phenomenal.

- Therese S.

"Going into the medical field, I especially wanted a school that valued the dignity of human life."

- Maria

"I was attracted to Aquinas because it taught the Catholic Faith and had a good nursing program."

- Mary F.

"I wanted to attend a small Catholic College where I could pursue nursing as my major. I wanted to be at a college with friendly people and where everyone knows everybody and the students are not just seen as a number but are seen as individual and unique people."

- Mary W.
