Regarding professionalism as a student, the most critical factor is the ability to communicate effectively to faculty, and patients. The complex needs of patients will vary on a given day, and it is important to listen to patients without prior judgment. Students must be able to communicate with a patient who may be emotionally vulnerable or distressing at times to handle. They can not learn proper communication skills through a book; it is a quality of professionalism that must be gained through experiences. My four year undergrad college was what helped me gain this level of professionalism that I needed to get into a graduate school.

St. Francis is an excellent university and is a great institution for learning for college of nursing. The nursing program has very stringent guidelines for professional development throughout the course of the program. Overall, the university provides a nurturing learning environment for students.
I absolutely love all the faculty and students! The professors really care about the students. At USF they know us by name, we are not just a number to the professors.
