    I am currently a senior in the BSN program. I am also a 24 year old single parent of two, working two jobs and a has a dog. I was always told I couldn't do it, who would watch my kids? How would I pay my bills? Well here at Carlow the nursing program is extremely difficult with reason. They pride themselves in producing great nurses, and have an excellent reputation to uphold, with the hightlest nclex pass rate in Pittsburgh. However, words cannot describe how much support the instructors are willing to give if you just ask for it. Everyone here is extremely helpful, its kid friendly campus sets it apart from other colleges I have been too. Personally I cannot speak for other programs but by the time you leave this nursing program you are prepared for anything.

    When researching colleges, Carlow has a great variety of majors. I was interested in biology, but not sure what to do with that. Carlow offers a biology major with certifications in either Perfusion technology, autopsy, and respitory therapy. Most colleges do not offer the certifications in specific areas of biology. This is the main reason I chose to attend Carlow.

    Be prepared to take a few classes that are required; however, try to make the most of them and keep an open mind (GPA booster?). The first semester is easier than the second one - they try to ease you into it. There are a lot of stairs on campus and certain elevators take awhile; be prepared.

    Students looking into Carlow need to realize just how small it is and what that entails for a college experience. Having a place where everyone knows everything about one another can be both a blessing and a curse. In addition, for students living on campus, it's good to look into the dining hours because they are really, really bad and hard to plan around, as the school is so small. Socially, it is good to try and branch as far as you can. I suggest making friends with the commuter students, because a lot of the girls that live on campus are sort of entitled. Pitt and Duquesne are also close, so making friends from there is a really good idea.
