Founded in 1941 in Rapid City, South Dakota as a secretarial school, National American University has since expanded into many locations throughout the Midwest, and provides many undergraduate and graduate programs across three colleges (health sciences, business technology, and legal studies.) Its Independence, Missouri branch was formed in 1990 and offers both in-person and online coursework. Available majors here include an RN-to-BSN track, as well as occupational therapy, business logistics, accounting and medical assistance, among many more. The Independence campus is easily accessible from the entire Kansas City metro area, and is military-friendly, reaching out specifically to veterans and families stationed at the nearby Whiteman Air Force Base. NAU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and by several regional, subject-specific authorities, and participates in company-assisted tuition programs as well as many other financial aid options, to ensure affordability. Let NAU get you on the fast-track to success, too!
