    Be prepared to put forth your best effort in all of your classes. Don't be afraid to talk to anyone-professors, peers, RAs, etc. Engagement is crucial to success. Realize that though you have gain independence, you should have responsibility over that independence.

    I am doing phd in University of Pittsburgh but my roommate is attending second degree nursing program at duquesne university. He is getting lots of trouble from some of professors & dean of the program. As per he said all are lier and change their statements frequently. As per he said it seems to me it is professor oriented university and not helpful at all to students. Also they charges way more than other university who offering same program. He is really brilliant student & in Dean's list in his first degree, awarded so many scholarship during his first degree. He is currently in Depression & so much stress. My other common friend was doing same program 3 years back & force to quite because of no help from management/professors so he went to pharmacy program in Florida and glad to let you know that he is successfully completed his pharmacy. Don't make mistake by taking admission in this University. If you want save money, time & life then please avoid this university & this second degree nursing program.

    My single and most import tip for prospective students would be to get involved. Duquesne offers so many wonderful extracurricular activites. From greek life, intramurals, study abroad, clubs, and campus ministry Duquesne has something for everyone. By getting involved with extracurricular activities you deversify yourself so much more as a person. You make new friends, learn new things, and better yourself for future success. Why not open yourself up and get involved with extracurricular activities? You would be foolish not to.
