Has anyone gone through TWC-FSN nursing program? I'm interested in attending here and it appears to be a good program. Nancy, the advisor told me they give students extensive training in ICU in the "advanced nursing" course and that that's unheard of in most BSN programs. So has anyone been? How was it? Pros/cons? Any info would be great!

Sounds so exciting! I have a friend who went to fort sanders nursing school before it was affiliated with TWC, it was still a hospital program at that time. She loved it. I hope it's a really good program because TWC is crazy expensive. I noticed that they don't have a separate pathophysiology course, so do you learn the pathophys as you go? One thing that was in the Twc nursing report from employers was that the nurses who graduate from twc had "extensive knowledge of pathophysiology". How challenging would you say the program is? Also, what's the chemistry course like? My friend who graduated high school last year valedictorian and a 30 something ACT said she's struggling to keep her head above water. She said its "Intro to gen/organic/Biochem" and she says it covers all the main topics from each area but that they do it at a breakneck pace. She said its a very fast paced course and has weeded quite a few people out. She says it covers the topics the premeds would have in those courses but they do it in one semester. To sum it all up, how hard is the chemistry? Or any other prereqs? Sorry for asking so many questions, but I start this fall and am so excited!
