I love the classes I take because they pertain to my major and have only made me more interested and determined to do what I want to do with my life. Some classes are tough, but with the effort, it is worthwhile.

The nursing program at UWM is known to be a little tough, but definitely doable. The professors are always available and willing to help and want everyone to succeed. Some of the classes were very big, but it did not bother me at all.
