What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
The University of Maine at Fort Kent is a school of great opportunity for nurses planning on working when they get out of school. The education expectations of nursing students is extremely important because, when we go out in the working field it is important that we are great nurses to our patients. This University is getting us prepared for the NCLEX from the very first year.
