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

- Mary F.

We are not taught just "book knowledge," we are also taught practical skills that will enable us to behave as professionals in a nursing environment.

- Mary-Frances N.

In high school, I knew I was going to study nursing in college. And so whenever I was wondering where I should go to school, they said go to Aquinas College because Aquinas nurses are selected before anyone else, from the hospitals, they seek us out. So that was definitely a cool thing about Aquinas and why I wanted to study nursing.

- Sarah G.

The faculty, together with the Dominican Sisters, play a big role in ensuring that my fellow students and I have a very fruitful, and satisfying experience at Aquinas.

- Mary-Frances N.

Here everybody knows each other. Even the teachers, they know you by name and they truly care. In high school with so many students it was so hard to know everyone. Here the teachers interact on a personal level.

- Cinthia J.

We are not taught just "book knowledge," we are also taught practical skills that will enable us to behave as professionals in a nursing environment.

- Mary-Frances N.

At Aquinas, everybody is considered equal and worthy of the respect and dignity that is due to all human persons made in the image and likeness of God.

- Mary-Frances N.

Since I wanted to go into the medical field, I really wanted to also have an ethical and philosophical dimension to it where we're focused on the dignity of the human person, and seeing each patient as an individual made in the image and likeness of God.

- Eva M.

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

- Maria

I wanted to attend a college where I would be allowed to freely and fully practice and grow in my faith, while receiving a dynamic, modern nursing education.

- Mary-Frances N.

I think the nursing program at Aquinas really prepares you. It's very rigorous, but I think that the level of respect that the hospitals and community have for it speak to that,  so it's worth it all in the end.

- Audrey S.
