Ensconced in the St. John Valley, the University of Maine at Fort Kent is a rural institution serving a diverse student body featuring a higher percentage of international students than any New England university. UMFK offers a number of academic programs that take advantage of its location including degrees in Rural Public Safety Administration and Applied Forest Management as well as minors in Forestry and Environmental Studies. With a large French speaking population in the Valley and the province of Quebec a short distance away, UMFK’s French department is a signature program. UMFK is also an athletic powerhouse as its men’s and women’s soccer teams have both won multiple national championships in the past decade.
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.
