I'm currently an S1 (senior first semester) at WSU CON. I feel so far the school has prepared me very well for clinical. The instructors are all very knowledgeable and are there to help any time you want, they are all very approachable. The classroom atmosphere is different than any pre req classes you might take, since we have all classes together except clinical you get to know everyone and its a tight, fun community. There are 90 students in Spokane, 20 in tricities and 20 in Yakima. Even thought there are 90 students in the class it doesn't seem like that many. You form strong relationships with other students also, the friends I met my first semester are some of my best friends now. Each semester you spend a little less time in class and more time doing which is nice. First semester is clinical once a week in geriatrics, second is twice a week in med surg (hospital), third is twice at week, one with pediatrics and one with obstetrics and the last semester is split between mental health and senior practicum. You kind of do have a lack of social life but with the relationships you build with classmates you will spend time with them, and have fun, studying alot of times turns into something else, which most of the time is a nice break. There is also a 5 semester option if that interests you. I suggest you come take a tour of our facility!
