  • "I am a single mom and went to Kaplan University [with the hope of] supporting my family, as I was living with my parents. In just one year I earned my Practical Nursing Diploma, landed a great job, and moved out on my own. I am thankful to Kaplan University for helping me gain the confidence to live up to my potential."
