GI Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Respected by students" "Inspirational" "Would take again"

I had Prof. Kantis as my clinical instructor in GI and she was absolutely amazing! She helped me gain the confidence I was missing in clinical. She won't spoon feed you answers, she will make you work for it and help you realize you do know the answer. She also incorporates A LOT of critical thinking which will help you become a competent nurse!

Mrs. Kantis is hard yes- She wants to make sure that you will be an amazing nurse one day. You need to put time in for her class just like you will need to for all the other nursing classes. She will teach you to the best of her ability but she will not spoon feed you. Remember- a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor!

NUR1210 L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I have gained so much confidence with this instructor. She has high expectations, but I think the pressure is absolutely indicative of what to expect in the real world. Know your stuff, stay sharp, and she is actually extremely helpful. You will get what you put into it. She's tough, but will make you proud to be a part of the BC Nursing program

Nur process Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She doesn't care about any of us. Her goal is to make skilled nurses and she will quickly fail anyone who she doesn't think is capable. I am extremely upset with how she threatens to fail you out of the program as her teaching mechanism. It creates a nervous and overwhelming learning environment. Terrible teacher

NUR1210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C+

Prof. Kantis is a very hard teacher BUT she is seriously just trying to make you a competent nurse. I must admit I did my share about complaining but overall it's not about the Kantis is about you and your patient. You want someone to be hard on you now. Better sooner than later, Yes she is hard but it's for your own good.

NUR1210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: WD

One of the most arrogant and rude professors I've ever had. If you ask questions in class she makes you look stupid and feel like an idiot in front of everyone. Not understanding at all. She believes she is much superior than her students and colleagues. Fails almost 80% of her clinical groups & tries her hardest to trick you on exams. Terrible.

Not helpful at all. In clinical she shows us what to do,then she walks away. If you make a mistake she makes you feel like an idiot. Very arrogant

NUR1210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You wont get as much out of her lectures as you will out of her clinicals, but overall, she is a good instructor who cares to help those who are willing and determined to learn. She is tough and will put you on the spot in a minute, but only because she is determined to produce safe and competent nurses. Stay on top of the reading & your material.

Kantis is great in clinicals and mediocre in class. Tests not based on class, textbook or powerpoints- which is very frustrating. DO NOT TAKE CENTRAL CAMPUS-YOU WILL REGRET IT!

Not very approachable. A little cold and intimidating. Talks about us dropping the class on our first day, so she expects us not to pass. Instead of encouraging students, she discourages them to drop the class. Not a good quality for an educator.

I LOVE Professor Kantis! She is amazing in clinicals! I must admit that in the beginning she is VERY intimidating, but as time goes by and you show her that you are really ready to learn, she seems less intimidating. Do your work and pay attention. She does not joke around. I passed clinicals and because of her I feel like a COMPETENT nurse.

Horrible professor. She does not care whether you make it or not. She almost never answers questions, if you dare to ask. I would recommend anyone to take her.

Process and GI Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of the BEST instructors at BC central nursing. Lecture is okay, but clinically she is freakin awesome. Quite intimidating to all. Deadly if you dont do your work. She sets the bar very high and is a major reason why I feel like a competent and safe nurse.

Professor Kantis is both tough and intimidating. She is a very knowledgable and credible professor. Expect to learn a lot from her. She's very helpful and fair and actually becomes very sweet towards the end of process once you prove to her that you're serious about nursing. Highly reccommend her! Wish she taught the whole program

kanits is a very helpful teacher. She actually teachers during lectures as well. If you fail her class, you need to re-evaluate yourself, not her teaching methods. Nursins is hard, but she actually cares about her students.

be prepared to teach yourself....she just reads from the power points and doesn't really teach..she expects you to know it yourself..in clinicals its the same way..Know every little detail in the perry potter book because she tells you its all fair game even if she doesn't go over it in lecture. Good luck!
