Current Lake Washington (LWIT) RN students?

  1. Hi. I am finishing my prereqs and am going to apply to LWIT as well as several other area schools. I haven't heard a lot about Lake Washington's RN program. Current students, or recent grads, enlighten me?!?!! Thanks!

    I just saw that your responded - thanks for being willing to share info. I am applying for spring quarter (having a baby in January, or else I would be going with my original plan and starting in a few weeks!!) I also will be applying to Shoreline but it is questionable whether I have enough points to get in there. I guess my main question is, overall are you happy with the RN education you are receiving there so far? Was first quarter super-intense? It seems like first quarter there are a lot of different subjects to juggle, as opposed to subsequent quarters where you tend to focus more on one thing (Med Surg/Psych/Etc.). I think that learning all the nursing theory first quarter will be a challenge, and yet I have been a CNA for 3 years so the nursing field is not new to me, which I hope will be an advantage and make school a little bit more manageable. Were you a CNA/tech before nursing school, or were some of your classmates, and did that seem to help them with first quarter in particular? Thanks!
