I first found out about nipissing through a school fair at my school. It was a really awesome course and the gentleman giving the presentation was fantastic. After farther research I finically got to go see the school and I felt super at home right away. The program was the best I had seen and the Nipissing community was everything I imagined for my university career! Alsng with feeling so at home the class sizes and student services/activities available here were amazing and just want I wanted!
So far it's been really great. All of my courses are either helping me pursue my career in policing or helping with General life skills. The course curriculum is expected to get better and I'm excited to have things even more specific towards policing as a career!
It had very small class sizes that allowed the profs to get to know they're students better which I think is really important. Also, their dorms are more like apartments with separate bedrooms, a kitchenette, and a bathroom you only share with one other person.
My program focuses a lot on the law but there are some classes that are just unnecessary. For example, learning classical and contemporary sociology may be interesting but it adds no value to what I want to be and the same with the required six credits of science.
I read that the class sizes were smaller which would provide me with better interactions with professors. The nursing program there is spectacular with a great simulation program to allow students to act out real-life situations on a fake patient.
The course curriculum is good however many of the classes taught were common sense (ethics, leadership, etc.). I learned everything I know from labs and from my clinical practice, not from the courses.
