"As a UNH alumnus, I was drawn to come full circle, back to the University of New Hampshire for my doctoral degree. Online learning is the way of the future in education. It is a gold currency that provides students a way to grow and develop in their field while maintaining their personal and professional obligations. I appreciated the faculty’s flexibility and commitment to communication." – Catherine Loiselle, DNP 2021
