I joined the program because it was affordable as well as convenient. The fact that all of the classes are online makes going back to school possible for me. I work full time and have two little girls at home, which means I have even less time to travel to campus for classes. The SSM tuition assistance has been an invaluable resource and is greatly appreciated. I would recommend any SSM employee wishing to obtain their bachelor’s in nursing to join this program. The entire admission and registration process was simple and stress-free for me. That, coupled with the fact that the vast majority of the cost has been taken care of by my SSM tuition benefit, made this choice an easy one.
