Academic Experience: Teacher did not teach her own material therefor made it very difficult to study and do homework. She would tell chapters to study and they would have nothing to do with the assignment.

Academic Experience: I love going to school at Wiregrass. The professors are very professional and because of such small class sizes, they are more than willing to work with you and get you to make the grade you deserve. Also because of the small class sizes, they can tell very easily whether or not you are trying which is helpful for those who are trying in their courses. It gives them more individualized attention. The curriculum for the Registered Nurses program is about the same at any other 2 year nursing school. It's very do-able. It's challenging enough to where I know that I am learning something great for my future career. Registration is very easy. You meet with an adviser and they talk with you about how you are doing in current classes or how you have done in past classes, then they ask where you want to go from there. They personalize your class load every semester, working with your job, home life, family. It's very simple and convenient.

Academic Experience: I am hoping to be part of the first class of ASN majors through Wiregrass and not SWGTC. Our workload is very challenging, but hopefully will be very rewarding. My only problem with the Nursing program is that they don't accept more applicants per semester. This makes it very difficult for people who are dedicated to the nursing education, but have a hard time making amazing grades. Part of the campus is brand new so there are fantastic projectors and new computers and programs to help with academics. The library could use some more materials, but there is only so much they can do with the funds they are given which is why I'm glad they have a cross-town agreement with Valdosta State. I've heard of no internship opportunities at Wiregrass pertaining to the medical field.
