Student Perspective

Meet Sarah, a graduate of our ABSN program. She relocated to Ohio from Washington to attend our College of Nursing. Today, Sarah is one of the many Xavier nurses out there making a difference in the field, caring for patients in a cardiovascular telemetry unit.

This was the program where I could start the fastest and be done the fastest. I also found the price point of Xavier to be a lot more reasonable than other ABSN programs.
