I am a Junior in the University of Missouri-Kansas City's School of Nursing and Health Studies program. I appreciate the intimate class sizes and have had several dynamic, passionate professors throughout my courses thus far. The instructors are always willing and available to help explain areas that require extensive clarification. Supplemental instruction, something I benefit from, is offered for several courses and they have concrete plans to expand this program. The School of Nursing and Health Studies is affordable, competitive, and hold high expectations for their students. An area that could use some improvement is organization. For example, there is a deadline for clinical requirements and they were not addressed until mid semester this year. Another area of weakness could be communication between faculty and staff. There was a change in the plan of study that a professor let me know about and my academic advisor wasn't aware of the change until I brought it to her attention.
Review University of Missouri - Kansas City
The advisers have been wonderfully well informed and have pointed me at multiple resources I wasn't aware of (especially as a non-traditional student). The instructors have been exceptionally helpful and the SI (Supplemental Instruction) sessions have been a huge boon to my learning!
UMKC has a beautiful campus with a very diverse body of students. I have found the professors at UMKC are willing to help and really do care about investing there time into the students, as well as the advisors, anytime I had a question they respond within the day or the next. only struggle I have found is the finances. UMKC is a little bit more on the pricey side to say the least. but if you can do it financially I would say UMKC is the school for you!
