Barry University Nursing Students

  1. 0
    Hi!

    I currently attend Barry University and I will graduating next month with a degree in Adminstration specializing in Hearh Services. I've decided to pursue nursing rather than go for my Masters in Administration. I've already applied for the pre-nursing in the fall but I've yet to receive my acceptance letter (I'm freaking out!).

    My plan is to finish four remaining prerequisites in the fall and apply for Barry's Accelerated Nursing Program starting January 2014. Anyway, I would love to hear from current Barry nursing students or students in pre-nursing. I have so many questions!

    What would you say is the most rewarding thing about Nursing? The most difficult?
    How is the course work? Do you find it to e very difficult?
    Do you suggest I quit working?
    Will I still be able to have a social life?
    Do many students drop out? Are they weeded out?
    Is there anything I should review or study before I begin the program?
    Are there any study tips, tools, or aides that you suggest I use?
    How is grading system like in the program?
    ^same question for testing
    What's the deal with "nurse eating their young"? Will I encounter a lot of that at Barry?
    How are the instructors?
    How are the clinicals? Where are the clinicals located?
    How difficult was it to get into the program, grade wise?

    Any other general advice you can give would be much appreciated!

    Please excuse any typos. I'm posting from my iPhone.

    Thanks!

    So I emailed the nursing advisor today. She told me they will not make a decision until my grades are posted in December. This sucks because if all the seats get filled before that I will be deferred till Fall 2014. But Good Luck to you.
