1) Which nursing school/college/uni did you graduate from?
Truman State University, graduating in 2002 with my BSN
2) What do you like about your school?
Beautiful campus, tuition is low, and its highly selective (ACT Score over 26 is required) so only students who REALLY want to be here are here. NO SLACKERS!
3)How will you rate about your school nursing program?
Top program in the state, so that really makes me happy to be here. Tough university though, and a 3.0 is the minimum GPA you can have to be/stay in the program, which adds stress.
4)What do you dislike about the curriculum?
Our Grading scale. 92-100 is an A, 84-91 is a B, 76-83 is a C, anything under a 76 is an F, we dont have Ds. Makes getting on to the deans list very hard. To keep scholarships, we have to had a 3.25 GPA. Im at a 3.24, and they wont let me have them. Very strict, that kinda sucks.
5) How strongly would you recommend your school to others?
Very good school, but we have a high suicide rate (atleast 2 a year) and the stress levels are outrageous. They really weed out the students who cant hack it. If you are willing to work, its great. Instate tuition is only 9000 a year, out of state is 12,000 which is pretty cheap. Lots of requirements, and Calculus is a requirement for freshman (yuck yuck and more yuck). The school is hard, but its reputation is great.
