6. I chose Keiser University Nursing Program in February 2016. I walked into Wayne Warner 's office when I was 8 months pregnant. Expressing to him how badly I wanted to become a nursing student, he told me that I could do it. Many other schools I approached turned their back on me, feeling as if I would not complete the program with having a newborn on the way. He told me to complete the classes at Indian River State College then come back. I came back a month after my son was born and with my Associate 's degree and continued that I chose Keiser University Nursing Program. He had never turned his back on me and new that I will complete the nursing program. With a lot of support at home, I will be able to give the time an effort to show you that you will not be dissatisfied. I feel that Keiser University nursing program will be great for me because of the hands-on training, the smaller classroom sizes, as well as the wonderful staff I have encountered on
