Madison Huff, Nurse Practitioner Student
“The distance education has been really great because with this day and age both people in a family typically work and it’s not feasible to go and live somewhere else for a long time. So being able to do it from your home, kind of on your time, is really beneficial to families and if you have to maintain a career while you’re going to school.”
Alesia Traeye, Nurse Practitioner Student
“When you come together, you see people in the room that look very different from you or are from different geographic areas, and they have the same goals as you. It’s kind of surreal, but it’s really cool to see that live experience, and you exchange information and experiences and you learn from each other.”
Kristine Twite Lehnen, Nurse-Midwife Student
“I don’t ever feel like I’m alone even though I’m halfway across the country. I feel like I’ve still got a really tight knit community. The professors are really great about responding to email right away, calling you if you’ve got questions or you can call them. So I feel like people are always there for you.”
Brian Webster, Graduate and Faculty Member
“When I started applying for schools and looking at schools Frontier really stood out because rural and underserved patient populations are very important to the university and important to their mission.”
Stephanie Allotey, Nurse-Midwife Student
“I feel like I’m answering the call, the same call Mary Breckinridge answered to, by choosing to attend Frontier to become a nurse-midwife in order to be able to help my home country later on in life.”
