Where did you attend school?Register Today!
- by Skillz Jul 11I"m starting this thread because I wanted to hear from working RN's in the south Louisiana area. I am trying to make a decision on where to attend school. I have recently heard from several nurses that Holy Cross was the best place to attend school. I was really only considering Charity & LSU, but then I heard some bad things about LSU. I want to hear if you felt your education prepared you for hitting the floor, or if you would of done things differently if you could. Any comments would be appreciated!
- Jul 17 by Katie71275Sorry, not in S. LA. I attended LaTech in Ruston and they have a fantastic program. I don't know much about the programs in the Southern part of the state.
- Jul 22 by larutanI am from New Orleans. What bad things have you heard about LSU?
- Jul 23 by rebecca9341I graduated from LSU this past May. I'm curious to find out what bad things you have heard about LSU.
- Jul 23 by SkillzI'm afraid I don't have anything more specific than "she just wished she had gone somewhere else." It was second hand. :/ I'm not phased though. I went to an information session and I got a great vibe from LSU and I will still be applying. For those that have just graduated, were you able to find jobs yet and if so, have you felt prepared to starting out?
- Jul 23 by rebecca9341LSU offers a great education, one that you must put in an effort on. Its not an easy program. I absolutely was prepared to work as a nurse after graduation. LSU expects its students to be self sufficient, so some complaints I have heard have to do with the lack of details/information the school gives on miscellaneous information. Your education is very dependent on the amount of effort that you put into it, no matter where you end up going. I did get a job rather quickly after graduation, as did most of my classmates. Good luck the process of applying.
