    I went to school WAY back in the 60's. I went to a Diploma school and back then it was one of the best around. St. Francis Hospital School of Nursing; we were affiliated with Loyola University and had there Professors for some of our classes.
    It was an excellent education. It is now closed, as are most Hospital schools in this area.

    Some of my Best Memories come from living in the Dorm--which was a requirement back then. Back in the 60's, it was a totally different world!!

    I continue to love nursing & working with patients to this day!!

    Viterbo College (now Viterbo University, as they now have masters programs) in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I thought it was a wonderful school, with good preparation and lots of clinicals (we started clinicals our Sophomore year!). My best memory is probably living in the dorms Freshman year and meeting people who I am close friends with to this day.

    I graduated from the University of South Alabama...it's a wonderful school!

    My fondest memory is of my psych nursing instructor trying to quiz us on what tardive dyskinesia, pill rolling, torticollis, etc. look like...she was very bizzare indeed as she sort of staggered around the room going into these various problems! lol

    Central school of Practical Nursing was the best!It fell together like a puzzle and we had very well rounded clinical rotations.I definetely would recommend it.It prepared us very well for the real work world.

    I went to a hospital based diploma program (3 years) St. Mary's Hospital School of Nursing in Huntington, WV. This was in 1975. I graduated in 1978We were also affiliated with Marshall University and that is where I took all the prerequisites (eng, soc, nutrition etc). My momma went to St. Mary's too and she graduated in 1950.

    NHTI in Concord, NH. Excellent ADN program with a long standing reputation for 'producing' high quality nurses.

    I attended Sewickley Valley Hospital School of Nursing. I would highly recommend it to others. We had a lot more clinical time and we were associated with La Roche College.

    I'm a newbie too, just got out of an extremely good, but rigid program which I have jokingling referred to as the "Death Star", for my own sanity, because I don't deal well with supposed teachers of empathy who have none....Also know as Marymount University in Arlington, VA.

    Most memorable moment? My husband crossing light sabers :smiley_ab with a Darth Vader Faculty Head over allowing me to reschedule a final due to a serious illness I had from an infection I contracted while at clinicals at one of their fine facilities!

    It's just all a part of the tradition of going through nursing school I suppose. Either way, I love taking care of my patients and I am proud of what I do, so that's all that matters to me!

    Ivy Tech State College at Sellersburg, IN (now called Community College of Indiana at Sellersburg) for my ASN and IU Southeast for BSN. Both are excellent, wouldn't trade any of the experiences or friends I made for anything in the world......
