Well, I graduated in Dec 2010 from ULL. I wouldn't ever suggest anyone attend that university.
1)The instructors don't know their stuff. One tried multiple times to say that Cor pulmonale is left side heart failure and the Aorta dumps into the Right ATRIUM! Multiple times I would notice large differences between multiple sources (drug guides, textbooks, etc.) & what the instructors were teaching. Stuff like antibiotics being wrong class on multiple slides and screwing up anatomy. Noticed this in the 208 semester and it continued through graduation.
2) The instructors have their pets like I'm sure happens everywhere. However, they love to pick a student or two and ride them relentlessly. They told me I had to get anger management counseling (went to 2 separate counselors one who instructed me to tell them "stop treating me like a patient and start treating me like a student" & other told me they can't tell me that I am angry). I presented the instructors w/ 20 emails from a group member calling me approximately 30 offensive names (drug addict, spawn of satan etc) and they did nothing (same semester I had to go to for counseling). Other students had issues too.
3) Students can fail one class and appeal to get back in. They say that you can't get back in after the second fail. I know of one student who failed 5 classes (208, 209, 304, 305, and 318) yet still kept getting back in. She started a semester a head and graduated 2 behind. Yet some don't get an appeal approved. How is that fair?
4) Experience is debatable. The clinicals are ok (those were the better instructors In my opinion). I've met new grads who had internships their final semester and they seem much more prepared for actual nursing. Most students are not even close to ready for 12 hr shifts w/o 30 min lunch breaks when things are really crazy.
That's the experience I had at ULL Nursing School
. I'm definitely not the only one that feels this way.
