Hey everyone!

I have been accepted into Linfield’s BSN program for Spring 2021. I was hoping I could get some input from graduates regarding this program. 
 

I have heard from a few Linfield nurses that after graduating that they didn’t feel very confident in their “hands on” skills and that they learned a lot of them once they hit the floor. Can any graduates speak to if this is how you felt as well after graduating?

 

Another thing that I have been told is that some instructors are great while others are absolutely terrible. Can any graduates explain if this is the case or not?

 

I have one other school that I have been accepted to so this wouldn’t be my only choice, I would just like some/any information from previous Linfield students on how their experience was throughout the program. Anything would help! I’m just trying to make the best decision between the two schools so any information/insight you can give I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you!!

Ill start by saying that I am not a Linfield grad, but rather an OHSU grad.

My experience and the experience from those I've spoken with in other BSN programs is that they mostly feel that they did not get as much hands on experience in their program and felt a bit under prepared when they graduated. I felt the same way. However, I found it pretty easy to get up to speed within the first few months of working.

I cant speak to Linfield's instructors, but I think that every program has instructors who students click with and ones who students dont click with. It will be no different than being at any other job where you sometimes just have to learn how to deal with certain personalities.

Right now I work with a Linfield grad, they seem to have enjoyed their education, but they are severely burdened by their student loans. Linfiend is extremely expensive and, unless you have someone wealthy paying for your education, you will end up with a huge amount of student debt. Their website states that the cost of the first semester for new students in 2020 is $30,401. I would strongly suggest letting program cost and finances direct your decision between this school and another. Your potential minimum student loan repayment could amount to over $1000 a month for 10 years. That could make a difference between doing things like buying a house or car or saving for retirement.
