Hey there! All of the things you said seem to mirror everything I've heard in the past but could you elaborate on the disorganization? I appreciate all the feedback, good to have reasonable expectations going into this!
When I was there, literally everything was disorganized, skills checkoffs, exam dates, assignment due dates kept getting delayed, lol you name it! One time our instructor arrived 40 minutes late and she told us she forgot she was supposed to lecture us that day! So we only had 20 minutes left of class, she lectured for 8 minutes and gave us a case study. Unbelievable... You ask one professor something about a due date and ask a different professor about the same topic and they will tell you different responses, it's like they do not communicate with each other about exam dates, assignments, or anything. Some of your instructors will be SUPER GOOD at teaching, while others just read off the powerpoint and don't give additional information aside from that. Some of the professors do not agree with each others teaching methods and once they literally got into an argument in front of the students, which we thought was very unprofessional. All I could say is GOOD LUCK! In each course overall average you need to get a 75 or above. If you get a 74.99, that is considered an D and you fail the course. The professors I had for my first semester got moved to different levels above and from what I hear the new professors are a lot more nice, teach you more fast and do skills checkoffs quick.
The first semester is extremely stressful, and the final semester I hear is the same. Try not to fall behind on your readings, because there will be a lott of chapters to read. Don't give up, future nurses! c:
