Academic Experience: the class its self has a guide for the student on the campus connect explaining the course and what the professor is wanting to do with the students. so by going on to campus connect and clicking course guide it will take you to a page and the student has to put the course number and the title and there where he or she will find that guide of the course.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It is very difficult to get into the nursing program but once you are in it you have a lot of opportunities. Unfortunately, I have been told the nursing schedules are not flexible and therefore, the students shouldn't attempt working while in the program because the program is a full time job.
