Future nurse

  • Degree: Nursing
"As a student with high hopes and dreams for their future, the nursing program that Kent State University at Ashtabula offered was the worst experience. The professors I had for the pre requisite classes like Anatomy/Physiology, Chemistry, Writing and Sociology were invested, working alongside you to make sure you were prepared and genuinely wanted students to succeed. However, only one professor Dr. Morris, was human enough to help students, she can only do so much. The professors in the nursing program don’t care if you don’t make it. Personally, I was told that nursing wasn’t for me just because I didn’t pass a test and I went to seek counsel on what to do differently and be a better student. They will tell you study habits and not help you understand material, professors notes would have opposite facts than what the book said, after taking the exam you would finally review it a week later (but it was a timed review and you couldn’t write down what you got wrong to study). It’s a shame that so many people from the area are lead to this schools nursing program (specifically I was 1 out of the couple in my family) and all the professors and staff care about is getting a high NCLEX rate it seems, not preparing you to be the best nurse. Or even to pass for that matter. I recognize that nursing isn’t supposed to be easy, but we are losing a lot of great potential nurses just because of the difficulty to not fail out (only graded on 4 exams and a final)."

  • Degree: Psychology
"Kent State helped a great deal in preparing me for graduate school. Kent's psychology program is taught by some of the best professors around and I have learned so much. Although I will not be pursuing a career in the degree that I have chosen, I will be using most of the information I have learned in my actual career. The program is filled with people who are always willing to help."
