I have very few negative things to say about my BSN program. I felt it adequately prepared me and my fellow classmates say the same. We started out with 30 and graduated 17. The majority of the people dropped out the first semester of nursing. The ones that did drop .... it was more for financial reasons (it is a private university and the tuition can be a little costly...although the financial aid office is great about finding scholarships
, etc.) A couple failed a class and just are a year behind and will be finishing this May. We have an excellent passing rate.... it was 100% for my class and over the past few years prior to us it was always about the same.
There was two clinical instructors (generally our clinical instructors were not the same as our class instructor) in my time there that were not so great. One constantly put the students down and the other was a only a few years older than us (the majority of the class was about the age of 22-23 when we graduated). This instructor tried to be more of a friend than a teacher and in the process revealed some personal info that none of us wanted to know. However, when eval time came, we all expressed how we felt about the situation, and neither of these instructors were welcomed back the following semester. So despite the not so great experience with them, our school respected our opinions and was really focused on making the best academic environment possible.
As far as lectures, all of the instructors were experts in their fields and all had a minimum of a MSN....many had PhD's. I defintely am thankful for the education I recieved at my university and would recommend it.
