I didn't feel that the program was well-structured because they're in the middle of re-structuring it (see above about moving to College of Dentistry). In the past, I'm sure it was, and in the future, I'm sure it will be, but I just came in at a weird time. A lot of the instructors are fabulous. Some of them are not. I know a lot of them really cared about us succeeding. I felt others didn't, especially in the administration. Just to let you know, NYU is very large and thus a VERY bureaucratic system. It is often difficult to find information you need, or help when you need it, regarding anything from scholarship
information to study abroad programs. The facilities aren't bad, NYU Nursing has their own building with lab and simulation rooms, although classes are generally held in large auditoriums, because lectures are huge. I know that part of their plans for expanding our college involves way larger facilities around the dental school, up on 25th, but these probably won't be completed for years. I did feel that there was a lack of personal attention, but again, it's all about your own experience. I'm not trying to shut NYU down. I'll never regret going there because I got to come to NYC and I met amazing people and had amazing experiences. I also have no other nursing education experience to compare it to. I know every nursing school has a lot of problems, and to be honest, NYU probably isn't that bad comparatively. I decided to go there because I wanted to live in NYC and because NYU has a master's program in Midwifery, which is what I want to do, and they allow you to do a dual-degree program where you can take up to 9 credits of graduate electives in undergrad and have them count for credit for both undergrad and graduate school. Then I'm automatically accepted into the master's program as long as I continue the rest of my graduate school within a year of graduating from undergrad. Sorry my posts are so long! I'm trying to answer everything you guys want to know. As always, feel free to ask more questions and I'll do my best. I know what it's like to want answers.
