Bachelor's Degree in Nursing Testimonials
Read Reviews From Real Students on University of Bridgeport's Bachelor's Degree in Nursing.
I graduated with my associate degree as an RN in 1986. I postponed my bachelor's degree and took a hiatus from nursing for several years after having children. When I went back into nursing, it felt a lot like riding a bike in many ways, but I realized a lot had changed in the ten years I was away, so I decided to pursue my BSN. I wanted a program that would allow me to work and use my experience to enhance my learning. From the information session to the admissions process, UB made it easy to navigate, and they offered guidance when I needed it. I had the most wonderful professors and found the courses engaging and relevant to the current state of healthcare and the nursing profession. Obtaining my BSN at UB increased my confidence in my skills and opened doors to exciting new opportunities that I wasn't even looking for before UB.
I am a graduate of the class of 78 and have had an amazing career journey leading to a nationally recognized position with Northwell Health. One thing to remember is human touch is still essential in nursing care — something I learned at UB and still abide by.

During my time in UB’s BSN program, I’ve learned so much about myself. I thank UB and the educational experiences that it’s granted me. I’ve made lifelong friends and have met many mentors along the way.
When I decided to pursue my bachelor’s degree in nursing, I was overwhelmed with the staggering amounts of tuition costs and loans required for institutions near my home. University of Bridgeport offered me a very competitive and affordable award package. A generous transfer scholarship and others included in my financial aid package gave me a chance to attend a private four-year institution without having to break my pockets. I also appreciate the attentiveness and willingness to help from the Financial Aid department when assisting students. University of Bridgeport has allowed me to follow my dreams of becoming a first-generation college student on the path to becoming a nurse.
