University of Phoenix Reviews: Crystal Muir — Master of Nursing Degree

University of Phoenix alumna Crystal Muir has a passion for nursing. She describes it by saying, “People will always remember how you made them feel in a moment, and that’s why nurses make such a difference.” She chose nursing as a career at a young age after nurses helped her deal with her fear when her father was going through cancer treatment. Seeing her father in a hospital bed surrounded by equipment was a scary thing, but the nurses took the time to explain it to her and knelt down to her level to make her feel included and less fearful. Today, Muir is a nursing supervisor in the hematology and oncology department at a major U.S. hospital.

Muir liked the convenience of the University of Phoenix online nursing degree program. It allowed her to work full time while earning her degree. She also liked that the teachers at University of Phoenix were all nurses themselves, so they understood the work and life challenges that nurses face and could relate those experiences with the course work.

Muir says that her University of Phoenix degree has not only allowed her to move up to a supervisory role at the hospital, but it has made her “a better leader, a better educator, better at time management and a better advocate for herself, her patients and her staff”.
