Troy Frazier | Master of science in nursing, family nurse practitioner ’20, UMKC

"I was able to pursue this degree because it was online. I’m a nontraditional student — definitely older than most of my classmates — it's a challenge due to the fact that I have a family and other responsibilities. The online platform was definitely designed to assist us getting our education without having to get on a plane and coming to a campus for a certain amount of time."

"This is the most difficult thing I've ever done. But at the time, all the instructors want you to succeed. Your classmates want you to succeed. Everybody wants you to be successful because they know how important it is to get people like us out there. Nurses help our country and our citizens and provide essential health care service."
