    Great post!

    You seem like a professor who truly loves teaching. What you did was above and beyond! You not only helped these students become competent nurses, but also taught them life skills that they will take with them in the real world. You've created a meaningful and positive school culture. Thank you for helping us grow. I truly agree that in addition to researching for the NCLEX passing rate at your top choice nursing program that you should also evaluate the culture environment of the program as well.
