University of Minnesota Rochester?

  1. 0
    So I just got accepted into the University of Minnesota Rochester. The school is small from what I have read. Can anyone just give me some information about the school? I have gotten accepted into another school that is 2 years, but here it is 3 years. I just want to know if it is worth the extra year here to be able to do some clinicals at the Mayo clinic.

    Thanks!

    I didn't even know there was a U of M Roch.

    If you can afford it, I would DEFINITELY go to U of M. Heck, with the economy the way it is and improving you are probably better off waiting an additional year.

    Are you sure you will do clinicals at Mayo?

    Congratulations on being accepted!!
    You are right, the class sizes are small. Each class is 30 students in Rochester, 100 on the T.C. campus. We attend class 1 or 2 days a week on campus over ITV (the profs are in the cities and we connect to them via webcam they are able to interact with us during lectures). Also all of your clinical rotations will be at Mayo Clinic in rochester.
    your first year you will not have clinical, instead you will have a laboratory class to learn basic skills. It is a good program if you are able to structure your time and keep up with the online courses. The small class sizes in Rochester are great for getting to know your classmates and collaborating on projects.
    GOOD LUCK!

    Bump on this post!! I am very undecided....I am in the application process for the U of M Nursing program but I don't know if I should apply for the Twin Cities or to the Rochester campus. Hopefully you guys can give me some insight! In Rochester, do you have access to nursing staff and faculty besides the ITV class time? And I know that on the Twin Cities campus they have a writing center to help with APA papers as well as nursing tutors. Is any of that offered on the Rochester campus? Rochester would be a lot more convenient for me but I just want to make sure that I have all the resources available to me on the campus that I apply for.
