What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
I have attended four other colleges besides NU and this is by far the most challenging.
Monique from Kirkland, WA
We have a state of the art nursing and Pre-Med program here at Northwest, which is both exciting and challenging. The professors here expect the best from their students and strive to challenge their abilities.
Monique from San Jose, CA
The classes are focused and the professors are amazing! Some of the classes seem a bit too easy and could be more challenging.
Classes are hard, but in a good way. You have to really work to get good grades.
Joy
Some of the classes are fairly difficult, but if you work hard, you will reap the benefits. The teachers want to help you succeed, if you come to them with questions, they will almost always go out of their way to help you.

Very good!
