Doctor of Chiropractic student at our Florida site

"...After witnessing physicians treat my loved ones' pain and illnesses, I was motivated to want to do the same. Knowing that every person I encounter is someone's mother or father or son or daughter, inspires me to want to treat my future patients as if they were my own family."

"I had the opportunity to work for and shadow the person that inspired me to pursue chiropractic, my older brother. The passion he displayed for his craft was contagious, and I quickly realized that a career in the health care field was right for me."

Master of Science in Oriental Medicine student

"As acupuncture and oriental medicine continue to move into mainstream medicine and health systems become increasingly integrated, there is a need for educational institutions to reflect these changes. I believe that National addresses and embraces this better than most schools, something from which its students will benefit and why I feel that transferring here was advantageous for my future professional career."

"My choice to attend NUHS was based on the integrated, collaborative learning environment, the academic rigor, and the location. NUHS has been a fabulous school for me because of its challenging classes, articulate professors, and, most of all, the community."
