I find the nursingQuite BrightNursing
I find the nursing school DOES NOT prepare you for NCLEX. You graduate and they say god luck and I mean luck, because you are not prepared to pass them

Question
Classes fill up too quickly.Quite BrightOther
Classes fill up too quickly. By the time I was allowed to enroll in courses, every course I needed was already full. Many of the professors do not speak English well. One of the better professors once threatened to fail an entire group for no reason. The student body is generally aloof and unfriendly-- you receive blank stares or dirty looks from other students. There seems to be a "cooler than thou" vibe, stronger here than at most other schools. The only good extracurricular activity going on right now seems to be the Ogier Gardens, though they only allow volunteering during the hottest hours of the day and not in the morning. All in all, a strange and disappointing experience.

Question
I hate my education here.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
I hate my education here. The landscape of the business world is changing frequently. The courses offered at UNF are basic and fundamental, but are becoming increasingly useless and outdated. They can't help it. Jacksonville is Southern in culture and UNF is filled with commuter students who want a job from connections in Coggin. They also have no budget for better teachers nor better (more "relevant to today" courses). If you seek a great career in a big city, DON'T GO HERE. If you highly dislike the South, DON'T GO HERE.
