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.
