“The richest quality of the College cannot be bought or built; the faculty and staff are a vital, incredible component to the institution. The success of the college, programs and students themselves can be attributed to the faculty and staff’s excellence and support. They are truly invested in our success as individuals and professionals. I cannot say enough for how wonderfully I have been treated as a student at Ashland University Dwight Schar College of Nursing & Health Sciences. I am grateful for their support and dedication.”
