"I have enjoyed my Grand Canyon University nursing classes so far and the instructors have shared their personal experiences as nurses. One of the topics emphasized by my instructors has been the importance of ethical decision making within the clinical field and nursing research. As I continue through this program, I am growing as a nurse within my current practice, gaining leadership skills and growing as a student. I am so thankful that GCU has allowed me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in this nursing world."
