Methodist College helps prepare me for, basically, the nursing world by providing me teachers who are knowledgeable about their craft, basically.
A lot of it is because of our partnership with Methodist Hospital, where you have all of your clinicals and also a lot of your instructors are former nurses there. So there's a lot of nursing knowledge that you get.
This is my first year in clinical, so starting from N200, which is pretty basic fundamentals, you right away are learning assessments, and then from there you just go onto getting more and more and more hands-on experience. So you're learning how to take blood pressures, and someone like me that's never worked in the medical field, that's what I needed was right away the hands on.
There are many ways to get a BS in here at Methodist College. You can go the traditional four year route. You can go through-- if you're already and RN, go to RN to BSN, or you can do the second-degree accelerated program, and you don't have to just go full time. You can go part time. If you have children, you can schedule your classes around that. So that it can work for you.
Methodist College offers a Master's in Nursing Education. It allows for hands-on experiences in the classroom. We do a lot of research and writing papers, and this all helps bring that knowledge together to help advance our nursing careers.
I don't worry about if I'm going to be prepared after I leave here. I know that I'm going to have that clinical experience and the hands-on experience. That I know when I leave here, I'm going to be ready to be that great nurse. So that's awesome.
