5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I have had the best teachings with certain teachers, therefore this rating is them.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: In the beginning of my freshman year, I've aimed to complete my associates degree in teaching, however my back up plan was to aim higher in the medical field as a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA). Since both subjects were in the same degree, I thought I could knock two birds with one stone and it has been beneficial on my part. I remained full time throughout my three years at Thomas Nelson Community College and studied profusely to pass each and every prerequisite class on the list. The workload was equally difficult as any other class I've taken but it was just as interesting to learn new things I have never experienced before.

Academic Experience: Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) provides students the opportunity to get involved with events, clubs or organizations that would help them improve in their future careers. TNCC gives their current students a privilege to enroll into the next term a week before the general registration begins as a priority registration. Each course's curriculum frequently allows its tests to be cumulative, depending on the term and its the weather. At the end of each term, students would sometimes be either recommended or obligated to complete a survey of their professor and course they took that semester. In addition to TNCC's workload or special study options, there are students who take up tutoring or go for work studies and help other people to get around.

Academic Experience: i love the major, (as i am in my prerequisites), but it is very hard to apply for nursing school. The admissions tests are very hard and it takes a lot of time and effort.

Academic Experience: Thomas Nelson could have better teachers, a lot of people do not seem happy to teach there and that is an issue for me. This is why i am planning to transfer to Old Dominion University.
