Absolutely love this school! Recommend to anyone going in the nursing field. The program is very hands on and the class sizes are very small which gives the students a good relationship with their professors.
I am currently not in college,I am still a high school Junior. However,I have been looking at five colleges that offer Nursing. I plan to be a L&D nurse (Labor and Delivery),and currently taking Anatomy and Physiology in high school to get a head start because I know that class is required for college. I want to get a sense of what to expect beforehand. Nursing major,or any medical related major is one of the most difficult majors to study because it requires knowledge on the human body and being able to treat and diagnose patients with accuracy. But,I honestly am headstrong on what I want to be and I do not see myself doing another major such as Criminal Justice,Mathematics,etc. Medical majors offer the most job shadowing opportunities,I am able to see what goes on throughout the day in a hospital and observe how the nurses and doctors take care of their patients and how they record/read medical records.
The school provides state of the art labs with computers, scanners, printers, and copiers for all of its students, best of all its super fast and free! They don't charge for anything that is printed or copied, and there is no monthly or quarterly limit, as long as your considerate. Every students get their own Microsoft account; everything is saved onto your account so you can open up any of your documents from any computer. Best of all, the whole system is linked to the hospital computers (where we do our clinicals), this is great because we don't have to worry about separate accounts or memorizing a bunch of different logins. Another perk we get is our ID's, our ID's are what help us get in and out of the hospital, and into and out of the computer labs (for special student privileges) and these ID's also help us log onto and off of the computers. They have some sort of Tap in/Tap out system where we don't even have to log in, we can simply tap the ID to the computer console and viola! We're in. Pretty cool if you ask me.
