    My Experience

    Honestly, I really wish I went to another school like UTA. You go to Baylor and Waco and totally fall in love and then have to pack up and move to the middle of downtown Dallas where there is no campus just a building on the side of a hospital. There are no housing accommodations (e.g. dorms, university sponsored apartments) so you’re on you own with living conditions (by the way there is no cheap apartments anywhere in Dallas and the gas is higher just in the city). The classes are not held in classrooms except for one class you take as a senior. The classes are held in auditoriums the hospital lets us borrow so cramped quarters, can only really bring a small laptop to lecture, and not so comfy seats or an area for learning. Many teachers just repeated Powerpoint back to us. There is next to no student life. There is BSNA that meets and does functions but if you have a job or have to study a lot it’s pointless to join. They just started intramural but not until after my first semester when I had the most time. Some instructors are questionable in their ability to teach and receive feedback when students beg them to try a new way. The school is not a student advocate. If there is an issue with a student at a hospital during clinical, there is no student support given. I will say I am getting a great education and learning what I need to know but I think that has a lot to do with me teaching myself at home and having my own initiative to study and become a nurse. There are some teachers who are phenomenal teachers and make me really have hope for this school. But all in all I would suggest UTA or TWU. This school has issues.

    About The Staff

    Dr.Perry is the best teacher I’ve ever had in college. Osteen is pretty awesome as well and is interactive with us. Neathery is awesome. Otto is awesome. Kendra is a great counselor. The rest I either don’t know, don’t interact with, or don’t like.
