            At Stony Brook, each student is respected for what they know, and are given recognition for their experience. I was allowed to expand on my knowledge in the Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program through the great guidance of really incredible and knowledgeable professors. I recommend SUNY Stony Brook to anyone considering a career as a nurse practitioner.
