Coppin State University Nursing Students

  1. Hi all! I am starting the nursing program at Coppin in the fall and wanted to know if there are any other students out there starting in the fall or are in the program as we speak. Those who are starting in the fall congrats. Those who are in the program already, any advice? Please share all of your experiences and if possible to help us newbies! Oh and congratulations to all the students who graduated and good luck on the NYCLEX. Thanks!

    You might find more of a response if you post on the Maryland Nurses board (Region > United States > Maryland Nurses, on the bar @ the top). I just graduated from Towson University and could tell you about clinical sites in the area if they overlap with where I was placed during NS. Good luck!

    Dulce-- WHat did you think of Towson? I'm starting Stevenson in the fall, but wouldn't RO later transferring there due to the $$$ of my school. What are they doing to address their NCLEX scores?

    Apparently they're adding a 2nd med/surg and doing away with leadership, starting with incoming juniors. I felt like the program prepared me, but some of my peers got away with doing very little and getting away with it. Some instructors did have their favorites.

    I think a moderator might be able to move this over?

    Did you have to work harder than others. Is it still a good program as far as being able to ask instructors questions and getting all the help you needed or did you feel more like you were on your own. I am asking cause Towson was my second choice and a friend of mine is considering it for spring 2010.

    I feel it was a decent program but that there is alot you have to teach yourself at times and you do have to ask instructors for help if you're not getting something. Most of the instructors are supportive and there were a few that were really awesome.

    Hey I'm also applying to Towson for Spring 2010. I have a 3.27 GPA in the pre-reqs that they require. But from what I hear Towson is pretty competitive. I'm not very confident about getting in.

    How do you like the program at Coppin so far? I applied there for Fall 2009 but I didn't get in b/c I failed the NET. I got a 67 in Reading both times I took it. Looking to re-apply but I wish it were a two year program. Any input/advice about Coppin would be great!

    If you could get into Towson in the Spring, go for it. I like the program so far as I am a sophomore, but the one big thing I don't like is that if you fail a Fall class, you are not able to take it again till next Fall. Same with a Spring class, you would have to wait till next Spring. So you get held back a year which makes no sense because they should offer all classes again either in the Spring or Summer to give a person a chance to catch up. So far I have not failed any class and this just pushes me to pass, pass, pass. Don't ever doubt yourself and always know that you can make it or you would not have gotten this far. Good luck with everything.
