I am about to start my third quarterAverageNursing
I am about to start my third quarter at LLU's School of Nursing program. The #1 thing that I love about this school are the professors. They make every effort to know you, treat you as an individual, and remember your name long after you took their class. Most professors have an open door policy, and are there if you need help whether it's class related or not. Maybe it's the nurturing and loving spirit of nurses, but my professors were there during a difficult time in my life during first quarter, and they provided strength and support to me when I was a mess and feeling lost. One professor sat me down with a box of tissues and counseled me for almost an hour during an especially difficult time with family issues. Another one of the most caring and friendly professors would send us a text and request for you to make an appointment with her to review an exam and go over study tips if you received less than a 76% on one of her exams. Another one took our pictures on the first day of class and had us write our names on the back of the paper so she could study them and remember our names. If you receive less than a B in a class the following quarter you will be enrolled in a program that has a one to one nursing mentor who will meet with you every week to provide you with encouragement, advice, and help to assist you in accomplishing your academic goals. I could go on and on about how welcoming and kind they have been. They are personally invested in your success, and encourage you to speak up and be confident in class. Additionally, many of the professors have been teaching there for many years, and are not only extremely knowledgable in their field, they are eager to help cultivate the next generation of excellent nurses. Lastly, I love the program because of their clinicals. The school is right across the street from the ED of a level I trauma center, and as students we can access a wide variety of top-notch care facilities all within a few miles of the school.

Question
Loma Linda University School of Nursing is notQuite BrightNursing
Loma Linda University School of Nursing is not at all cracked up to what it claims to be. It is a religious school so you spend a lot of time being preached at. They live by their credo of making man hole and promoting health and wellness... well that is not for their students. They care less about their students. In the past year I have gained 20 pounds and have been to the gym probably 10 times. The faculty assigns so much busy work you will barely have enough time to clean yourself up. Some of the faculty make it close to impossible to be successful and will openly talk to you about quitting and not becoming a nurse. These faculty members are not Godly, and are in my opinion the devil incarnate (Dr. Zamora). If I could turn back time I would have attended a different school. The notoriety is not worth the stress induced ulcers and substantial student loans from attending this school.

Question
I went to Loma Linda for nursing.Nursing
I went to Loma Linda for nursing. Was I the happiest while I was there? No, but I went there to get my degree and get a good job when I graduated and I have that now. It is a very Christian (Seventh Day Adventist) environment and sometimes I felt that they made us do a lot busy work that is not necessary. My job now is great in many ways, but the learning curve is very steep. In nursing school things can be very generalized. I can't really say how my nursing program compares to others as I haven't had any experience with other programs. I will say that I took out a lot of loans to go to this school and paying them back really sucks, but at least I make enough where I can pay back my loans and still have money for other things. The campus does not really have that "college" feel like other universities I have visited where it feels like your at this great summer camp for four years. There is a hospital there and other medical/health facilities. It is a place where many people go to actually work so it has kind of a subdued atmosphere, that and it is a conservative christian college. The campus is mostly just pretty ugly. They did do some renovations of the student caf which was much needed and they put up some new buildings so they are trying, but like i said before i wanted to get good steady job after I graduated and I do have that now so the school served it's purpose. Oh and they do pray pretty much with every class and every test you take. I liked that part. I read that another person thought it was a waste, but when your going through a very stressful program like nursing it can be comforting.
