Pros: small campus, all instructors/professors are phd's in nursing program (or working to complete it), excellent classes, enthusiastic adult students.
Cons: part time faculty members have been phased out, i am the only one left, i do not know how long i will be offered a 3 credit hour class to teach, i started out 9 years ago teaching 20 credit hours per 8 week semester, (the department only had 2 full time phd's), in the past 3 years, we have changed from 20 adjuncts to 10 full time faculty.

5. As an Adjunct,only see peers on these Education days or at graduation.

7. Are encouraged to develop new programs if supported by Faculty Meeting.
8. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the program is teaching the students. We bring the BSN
