“I chose to return to school as an adult learner to pursue my RN to BSN degree at Ashland. It had been many years since I received my associate’s degree in nursing and I was really nervous about going back to school, especially online. I was amazed at the support of the staff and professors, who really understood the needs of a non-traditional student. The online classes were much more convenient, and easier to navigate than I would have thought. It was still a challenge, but with the flexibility of the online program, I was able to continue working full time and keep up with my family's activities. I would highly recommend this program to anyone considering returning to school.” – Melissa Compton
