Major: Nursing (This Major's Salary over time)
Came to this university for their innovative nursing program (second-degree BSN). If you're considering this program at this school, keep looking. They've already kicked two people out for frivolous, inappropriate reasons, and will personally insult you if given the chance. Most of the department will act nice to your face, but they'll turn on you quickly if they don't like you for whatever reason. They will claim that it's a learning environment, but make one small mistake once and you're done. Professors will often say incorrect things during lecture, so you have to read everything just to make sure that you get accurate information. Or, they'll completely leave something out in lecture and expect you to know it in detail for exams. It is not, by any means, a pro-learning environment.

That was just the nursing department. The school as a whole is a mess. Communication and organization is the poorest that I've ever encountered (and I've studied at multiple PA universities). Nobody ever knows what anyone else is doing, and instead of talking to each other, they instruct non-innovative students to pass important information onto the innovative students. When registering for classes, dates / times are incorrect and getting accurate information is nearly impossible (we registered for classes weeks ago - we STILL don't know the correct dates / times for most of the courses).

They'll try to make you think the program is SOOO competitive, but it's not. They accepted at least 5 (that's 25% of the whole class) of the innovates into the program within 1 month of the start of classes, 2 of which weren't accepted until 2 days before the start of class. Why? Because a lot of the original accepted students opted to come here (and they're wiser because of it).

I could write a book about this school in general, and the nursing department specifically. I'm not a disgruntled student. I just know poor quality when I see it, and I'm seeing a lot of it here. Do yourself a favor and look at other nursing programs.

responseYeah! I couldn't of said it better myself. What a poor nursing program. I agree totally please look into another program,you will be glad you did!
