Yes, I agree. They do have a very solid program. Their instructors are excellent (knowledgable, friendly, approachable; yet still drive students to do better). There have been very few complaints about the actual program that I could possibly make.
My post was not a complaint about Nicholls BSN program!!!
My complaints above were directed at the lack of information available to pre- Nursing majors. It was very frustrating to have spent a large amount of time & money planning for one situation, when I could have been planning for another. But as one poster kindly pointed out, I need to learn to "roll with the punches," which I am working on. I must be doing OK since I have gotten through the toughest part...
And as another poster noted: this problem for some students of my demographic (non-trad, parent) is NOT
limited to Nicholls program alone (I simply posted it here due to the fact that this is a regional board & Nicholls is a LA school
I would have love to hear more actual tips
from Moms/ Dads (that could help other parents) as to how
they managed to get through nursing school with kids.
This post was meant to inform, not start an anti- Nicholls campaign. I guess I failed in that regard... I must be the only person to ever experience this type of problem. I had a heckuva time getting it together pre-Clinicals & would have really appreciated this info before I ever started working on my five semesters of pre/ co- reqs! I feel that any student listed as a "pre-nursing major" should be fully informed of this information by their counselor & NSU is not doing that... That's all I'm sayin.
Just wanted to clear that up... for anyone interested...
