La Salle University is well known for its challenging nursing programs. I am a current student in their MSN - Family Nurse Practitioner program. I find it to be challenging, but rewarding and I know in the end hard work will definitely pay off.

La Salle University is a great school to attend, they have many majors to chose from, over one hundred clubs to join, and numerous sport teams to join. Aside from sports, La Salle offers tutoring and assistance for any subject when it is convenient for you. As my first year as a Lasallian student, I have never felt more welcomed and acknowledged as a freshman student with help always being an e-mail away.
