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.
