A lot of people still have concerns about receiving an online education. At Linfield College, we are letting our students do the talking.

Vivienne completed Linfield College’s online Nursing program where she received her BSN in 2015. She is a self-described compassionate, determined, and motivated mother of three who took her time as a Linfield student seriously. It didn’t take her long to realize the value that her program placed on its individual students.

“The liberal arts environment is so well rounded and allows the opportunity to learn so much in ways that cater to individual interests instead of the traditional black and white curriculum requirements of other programs.”

One of the concerns many people have about earning a BSN online degree is a lack of hands-on experience. At Linfield, we understand the critical importance of physical learning, which is why we match our students with clients for internships and research projects.

“For my service learning requirement in the BSN program, I volunteered with a faith-based clinic called the Mercy Clinic in Fort Worth, TX. The clinic offers free health care services to uninsured, low-income residents of the 76110 community. As part of a service learning project, I created a crowdfunding project through Linfield’s annual giving department to help raise more money for the medical supplies we use while helping patients at the clinic.”

Vivienne’s experience is an illustration of the meaningful changes our students are making in the community through our programs. Our students come from all ages and walks of life. One of the most attractive characteristics of the BSN online degree is that our curriculum works with your schedule and focuses on your individual needs. As a mother of three, Vivienne was able to complete her service projects while receiving individual attention from her instructors.

“It has been a very personable experience. When you call in, you almost always get exactly who you were trying to reach. Instructors all are easy to get a hold of and all so wonderful. Being able to partake in the liberal arts content and form a family educational culture has made everything both comfortable but also more impactful than your large-scale university where you can get lost in the crowd.”
