"If you are thinking about pursuing a master’s degree in nursing, let me tell you that the joint master’s program at Auburn University/Auburn University Montgomery is the place for you! One of the best ways to gauge a program is by the students that have experienced the program firsthand. As I reach the completion of the AU/AUM MSN program, I am very proud to be a member of the charter class. While graduate study, particularly in a brand new program, can be challenging, I wholeheartedly recommend the AU/AUM MSN program to my fellow nursing professionals. The opportunities are unlimited as this program prepares the Nurse Educator and Clinical Nurse Specialist. The AU/AUM MSN program invests in the professional development of its students.

My classmates and I have attended innovative conferences held by National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists, National League for Nursing, EDUCAUSE, and Southern Nurses Research Society through the financial assistance of the AU/AUM program. A highlight of my MSN experience was attending the NLN Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida and winning the award for “Best Peer-Reviewed Poster.” I attribute this accomplishment to the outstanding faculty of the MSN program that serve as my mentors. With the encouragement of Dr. All, I have submitted a manuscript for publication and have been accepted for multiple poster presentations at respected conferences. Dean Witt and the MSN faculty have opened so many doors for me, and I am so, very thankful for their leadership."

"I have just completed my first year in the AU/AUM clinical nurse specialist masters program. One of the characteristics that attracted me to the AU/AUM nursing program was their scheduling flexibility and support for part-time students. That was important to me because I am a wife and mom first, and the part-time option allowed me to be a student as well. Now in the program, I continue to be impressed with each of the program's faculty members. They are genuinely interested in each student, and have worked hard to develop relationships, know our names, and our goals and dreams. They have provided support for the multiple methods of learning in this program, including online, and have challenged and stretched me professionally and personally."
