A Message from Dr. Nieves

At Goodwin, our programs are truly student-centered. We strive to offer relevant, top-notch knowledge to our nursing students. To support the success of our pupils seeking personal and professional advancement, our flexible faculty adapt beyond academics, and talk with students in the evenings, meet virtually on weekends, restructure courses to minimize the number of textbooks; therefore, out of pocket costs, and much more.

Nursing programs are demanding and rigorous but life-altering. The nursing faculty and staff at Goodwin have all been in your shoes, and we know firsthand the experience of working while studying as a nursing student.

Unique in understanding that additional obligations are often outside of university doors, we look forward to offering you the support and guidance you need to achieve your nursing goals.
Best regards,
Christina Nieves DNP, APRN, FNP-BC
