"UA PROVIDED ME with the opportunity to work full-time while going to school. The curriculum is flexible; I was able to keep the pace and achieve my clinical hours while working, raising a family, and caregiving for my mother. I also appreciated that the faculty members are very invested in our success. Many of them were actively practicing, so they were very current in their knowledge of the workplace and the issues before advanced practice registered nurses."

Our university is located in the heart of a vibrant downtown and minutes away from an abundance of recreational opportunities. The dynamic campus offers Broadway shows, sporting events, arts performances, and an award winning student recreation center.

Akron itself is a hidden gem in many respects. Situated in northeastern Ohio, Akron boasts a rich history and exciting renaissance. Having retooled itself over the past few decades, the area is a magnet for jobs and investment. Akron’s top industries include health care, education, manufacturing, technology, bioscience and polymers.
