The nursing building at TTU is really nice except for the fake columns on each side of the front of the building. Not only are they ugly, but they actually included half columns. What jackass approved this?

It looks nice and it serves its purpose. That is all I and most people with lives care about.

Its a nice building but lacks one thing-students.
Only a few is turned out each semester and with a shortage of nurses I think its a problem. Yes, we need well trained nurses, however their should be a limit on the "perfection" thing. It was so much of a problem that the University stepped in and said, "use it or loose it". Guess what? they lost it, now the Agriculture Dept. is sharing the building.

If they're not churning out many graduates then why are they so picky in the selection process for who even gets admitted into upper division nursing? My sister was turned away, went to UT, and was accepted. Graduated in the top 10% of her nursing class.

Nursing schools in general are enabling the nursing shortage. Most of them require entrance examination which does little to prove whether or not somebody is academically fit for nursing school and it subsequently prevents a lot of intelligent individuals from entering the program. You could have a 4.0 GPA and get the door closed on you because you crapped out on the entrance exam. I know a lot of A students who don't test well.

There is NO nursing shortage. With the slow down in the economy many hospitals are laying off employees including nurses. I work in health care and nurses are not in demand right now.

Meh. I'm not complaining about TTU's nursing requirements or their lack of graduates. Some other schools will accept people with 2.0 GPAs as long as they do well on some silly entrance exam. TTU's nursing school doesn't have an entrance exam but you have to have at least a 3.0 GPA to be considered for the program and a 3.6 GPA to be competitive. You can have a shortage or well trained nurses or a flood of slackers who barely squeaked by with a C. Personally, I'd prefer the former.

Yea I thought the Nursing School was very selective by choice and standards...truth be known they don't have the staff/teachers to meet any sort of demand..and a lot of students and parents have been decieved.

Me personally id rather have a C student who knows how to be a kick ass nurse and also has people skills than an A student that never worked a day in their life and has no sort of critical thinking ability in the field..at least that's who id want to be working next to anyways ;)

How can a C student be a kick ass nurse? They can't. Anything below a B is failing in most nursing programs which is precisely why C students shouldn't be accepted. 50% of TTU's nursing program is clinical and lab so you can keep lying to yourself about their graduates lacking critical thinking skills and keep assuming that anybody with a bachelors degree got through school by sucking on mommy and daddy's financial tit if that's what makes you feel better about not receiving an acceptance letter. Hurhurhur.

You're probably jealous because they have a decent building while all you engineering and biology majors get stuck with the buildings that haven't seen a major renovation since the 70's.

If you support idiot ingrates such as Dennis Tennant and John B. Averitt, you should be in prison.
