She cares more about Faculty Accessibility than the average student.

Major: Nursing (This Major's Salary over time)
This nursing program is very outdated. Many of the school projects are just busy work and the school tends to favor paper projects as opposed to computer projects. The faculty is mostly recent grads and several very old professors and not many of them have any actual bedside nursing experience. The clinicals are very awkward with an instructor literally standing over you whenever you provide any patient care such as passing meds and starting IVs. The faculty micromanages the entire clinical time and when I graduated in 2015 we were still doing handwritten assessment notes on our patients. A huge emphasis is put on "critical errors" which you can earn from clinicals for things that the faculty deemed horrible mistakes that you made. These errors ranged from not foaming in and out to giving meds more than 30 minutes late to writing your clinical note after 10am. If you recieve more than 5 or 6 critical errors in a semester then you failed the class even if you were getting an A in the actual class. Finally the culture of PCC is grossly opposed to learning. For example, multiple times the instructors would tell us that this college is better than the other colleges in Pensacola because "we are a Christian college." Most of the emphasis was placed on how we looked to everyone else rather than updating our academics or nursing labs. Instead of providing educational experiences in the hospital we were given multiple clinical days in the nursing lab where we learned and practiced inserting NG tubes on old diparwipe boxes decorated to look like a face. During one of the finals senior year the teacher Mrs. Yoder wrote up half the class for skirts shorter than the knee but never had the integrity to say anything to us directly.

My experience at PCC is that of subpar education, poor clinical experiences, and very poor preparation for the NCLEX and real nursing.

Worried about skirt length, which is a sexism issue should not be the focus of these courses. A professor, unless implemented into the student handbook for appropriate clothing attire, should NOT be writing students up on how long their skirts are when the students are in classes that are handling life and death of patients. I rather have students that know what their doing, especially in emergency situations as no one will care about the length of your skirt, which can always be adjusted later and is a wardrobe thing, especially considering that you are adults and should not be written up like a child showing their belly unless your wearing obvious straight-out-hooker-club clothes.

A diaperwipe box decorated to look like a face sounds like gross humor. Taking unsanitary diapers and shoving them into a face is actually a fetish called "Diaper Fetish" and "Scat Play".

Hand-written assessment notes on patients is also a no-no. The latest hospitals out here now use digital pens and notes, and hand-written only in the case of backups or emergencies.

This school sounds like an out-dated run around for nursing students and is not up to par to other schools that provide excellent learning enviroments.
