    When I went to TWU, there was an attitude amongst the teachers and the students that TWU is better than other programs. The instructors time and time again would tell us how lucky we were to be at TWU, and how, when all was said and done, we'd know so much more than even the doctors. This was several years ago, mind you, so it may be different now. But I think this attitude might be a reason why there is so much negativity toward TWU.

    Like I said, this was several years ago--things might be different. So if you go to TWU, please don't take offense; I am just speaking about my experience with their BSN program.

    In the scheme of things, it really doesn't matter where you get your education--all that matters is what you do with it!!
    I've already noticed this even though I haven't started there yet! The director or something was all, "Now that you are in the BEST nursing program in Houston..blahblahblah".. I was like.. ooookay.

    I am starting TWU Parkland campus in a couple of days and I am scared shutless. I heard it's hard, but then again they all are. They should be. Nursing isn't for the faint of heart.

    When it came down to it, I got accepted to UTA and TWU for a BSN and El Centro for an ADN. I chose TWU because it seemed to be a better fit for me. The best thing you can do is talk to current students and faculty for whichever schools you are interested in and go with what feels right for you. Never ever believe in second-hand information - everyone has a different experience based on what they put into something.

    Good luck in Nursing School!

    Just remember - your classmates will become your biggest support group and your family will become your biggest cheerleaders!

    Fear and excitement are the same thing - fear is the unknown and excitement is the known - that is the only difference!

    OK...this thread is a few years old, but hey...better late than never, right? I am just wanting to find out about TWU from those who (presumably) have now finished. What did you guys think? Did you run into students from other schools that had bad/good experiences? I have been accepted at Baylor Dallas and TWU Parkland for this spring and THINK I am going to choose TWU (have to decide by 12/15!!!). The only problem is that I haven't had an orientation or tour, etc of TWU yet, only Baylor so I don't have anything to compare them. I do know from my one semester at TWU and just the app process with Baylor that TWU seems to be a bit behind on communication and organization...and their financial aid stuff seems to be a little messed up. But what else is new, right?

    I'm Lisa Michelle from this thread. I don't even remember ever using that name...?

    Anyway, I'm a TWU graduate and I'd reccommend going there. It's hard, it's disorganized, and there are instructors you will hate, but it's a good education and clinical sites are mostly in the med center.

    For many, the decision comes down to cost. TWU is cheaper than Baylor. I think you will get a good education no matter what you choose! PM me if you have any more questions.

    TWU Grad - May 06!!!
