Lowenberg School of Nursing Fall 2012

  1. Hi! I am new to the site and I haven't been getting as many replies as I expected/ wanted to. I am currently completing my pre-requisites for the program at the U of Memphis and I plan on applying for the actual program for Fall 2012. I wanted to know if there are any other students applying then as well? Also can someone who is in the program tell me a little about it and how they like the program. Could you share your experience with professors, clinicals (especially those because I am most nervous about that), the work load and how you handle dealing with the load and having a life outside of the nursing program. I would greatly appreciate any replies. Thanks!

    awww cool, so how is micro? I am considering taking it at southwest, what do you think? I took sociology in the summer; what class level are you?

    Micro isn't that bad, just a lot of outside reading on your own to really grasp the material. The lab is actually easier than the lecture. If you take it at Memphis, take Professor Wong but if you can, I would take it at Southwest so you can have a smaller class size and it actually may be easier there. I'm also a second year student, first year at Memphis.

    no not yet, taking it in november, what did u think and how did u do?

    I took it over the summer to get it out of the way but I got a 79.3% overall. If you study the ATI manual for the TEAS V then you will do pretty good. I think it helped me a lot. I also got the two practice test that came along with it to get an idea of how the real test is.
