    Im about to start my 2nd semester. The uniforms are huge!!! I usually where a large or extra large in blouses or fitted t-shirts so I got a large in the uniform top. Big mistake! Its a huge mens large. So I ended up buying a small and a medium. There is pretty much no difference between the small and medium. I am large chested and had no problem with those sizes. The pants are are sooo ugly. The are about 8 inches too long and have a kangaroo pouch in the front. Most of my class went to Landau and bought white pants. We never had any problems with the teachers saying anything to us. The only thing they said is that they shouldnt look different than anyone elses. So just dont get the one with the cargo pockets and you will be fine. The pants from the uniform place are seriously awful. Its a must to get the lab coat from the required uniform place. One of the guys just bought a lab coat he wanted and put the Southwest patch on....they wouldnt allow him to wear it.

    I spoke with Cpr To Go and she told me that there is one slot left for July 11th and several left for July 25th. She is with AHA and has taught a few people I know who work at major hospitals in Memphis. I took the July 11th slot from her. Message me if you want her number. I hear she is to the point and very good.

    Couple things about nursing school:
    ******* will not teach you she will talk to you
    ***** is the best person in the world.....period
    ******* is a OB GOD
    ******** is for real!! dont mess with her
    Dr. ****** just left for UT Masters program director----if you survived her you know what she was teaching-
    ***** is a total hippy, which is so funny.

    DO NOT buy books until class starts as they use old editions and what some say is required will actually even be used.

    LISTEN to the lectures- cause that's what is tested on, do not spend alot of time reading and cramming-

    Dosage Solutions is now a online course which is stupid and dangerous, and make wure you turn in the homework it counts 10% of grade and makes the difference between passing and failing!

    I emailed ***** about concerns with uniform and she said buy whatever was fine with her as long as it had the patch correctly placed, so not sure about the lab coat and the student not being allowed to go to clinicals...... cause I attend know and I do not have the coat pants.....

    I have a quick question for those accepted to the nursing program @ STCC...

    I was under the impression from the SW website and from reading some posts on here, that they accept students based on the admission index (AP I&II, Microbiology grades, gpa, nln score)...now two people are telling me you have to have a recommendation from a professor. Is this true? I know you have to submit an "essay" with the admissions application but I did not see anything about a letter of recommendation. Any comments would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    I submitted an essay describing my reason and desire to enter the program, but we, at the time (fall 2011 applicants) were not required to submit a professor or any kind of recommendation. Your AP&Micro grades are the most important, as they have the most weight on the index scale...

    Did you just say that Dr. P left southwest to become the Director of the UT Master's program? I just want to make sure I read that correctly?

    Yep she is now the director of RN-MSN-CL program at UT Memphis

    I love her style of teaching and no nonsense 'if you try' attitude.
