Because I am a visual learner, it was important for me to find a program that incorporated that learning style into its curriculum. I needed the flexibility of a completely online course, but with the interactive aspect as well. That’s what I really liked about Logan’s DHPE program. It is the perfect balance of clinical and research-based work.

I knew I never wanted to be a nurse practitioner, and I didn’t like the lack of flexibility in most higher education nursing programs. Since a large portion of my current role is online education, I liked how Logan’s program delves deep into online curriculum development, rather than just in-classroom education. They encourage you to take the path that best suits you.
