Overall Experience: My overall experience has been okay. The program is rigorous as most nursing programs are. Most teachers are very kind and will help you anytime you need it, a select few are not. The ADN bridge program is fairly new still at this school, so my class has endured many last minute changes. This can really through off your course of study. But that's all part of nursing, you never know what your going to get that day or shift. I enjoy nursing very much and this school will help reach your goal of being a great nurse.

Campus Resources: I can access a computer whenever I feel the need for study, etc. Teachers are also available for any questions of concern. Every Friday the Academy has Tutor sessions open to all students to help with any specific complications.

Student Body: A majority of the students in my class are hard working individuals. Many also having children which was amazing to me as they had the ability to balance out their lives to accommodate school. Every classroom of students has their ups and downs, but we became a family and always stick together in our studies and motivate each other to get through.

Career Services: The school continues to strive in finding students jobs after graduation. They constantly call to see if you have been hired anywhere and if not they give a list of places where our skills are needed. Also, my school will provide letters of recommendation. I believe the school truly cares about the students success.

Campus Resources: I used my computer home , never used the computer at school.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I agree with the sample review. If this was explained before hand, that I would have to pay some money out of pocket to enter the program. Then I would have done otherwise. For example work some more and put the money aside or start at a later date.

Academic Flexibility: The main reason why i choose this school is the flexible class schedule. I am able to work a 7-3 or a 11-7 shift when available and would still have time to study and rest. I have satisfactorily complete my first three months. Now I am not able to continue in january due to the money that I must first pay. My credits are not transferable, which make me very disappointed. Therefore I am seeking all the help I can get to make my dream come through. Thanks inadvance for your thoughtfulness.

Student Body: My school is very diverse as far as ethnic backgrounds. Everyone in the program has to be employed as an LPN which is one of the requirements for the program, so everyone in my class was working and had families they were juggling. We all worked together and were very courteous and respectful to one another.

Academic Flexibility: I previously attended this school to complete my LPN program and I was successful. The staff is willing to work with you though school work and personal problems. They offer a retake for each exam which is a great help since you get a second chance to pass your exams if needed. The RN program is in the evening which isn't a big problem for me. With financial aid, they help as much as they can but I have to come up with almost $3000 by the beginning of January before I start the RN program. They don't allow payment plans for the tuition which puts my in a rough position because I'm not sure if I can come up with it. I am trying my hardest to apply for several scholarships to come up with my tuition. Overall, the school is a very good school. They try to accommodate everyone.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost for the program that I am in is rather high, at $23,000. I was able to apply for financial aid to help pay for it. The process was easy at the school.

Overall Experience: Pleased With My Choice – Although the school is small, it has a big effect on you as a nursing student. The staff are very knowledgeable and together, they have over 100 years of on-hand experience in the field of nursing. I feel this is the best place to if you are interested in becoming a nurse.

Academic Experience: The Road to a Career as a Practical Nurse – I am an ASPN (Associate of Science in Practical Nursing) student. The class that I am in is rather large; we are around 85 students. It may seems like it is virtually impossible to complete the program, which is 16 months, due to all the work you will be hit with. There is a lot of reading and a lot of knowledge to be interpreted. My advise would be to be sure to leave yourself enough time to study. I cannot stress this enough. As long as you do not allow yourself to fall behind, you will be successful as a nursing student at the Academy.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very Important – The tuition is very reasonable in my school however there are more student loans than grants used, if there is left over money in your account you do not receive it until you pass all of your classes which is almost at the end. For this school it is good to have a plan while you are going to school because there will be no extra money available for you to live off of

Career Services: Career Center Helpful – They are very proactive in helping you find employment. They really are there the whole way to make sure you get a good job.

Campus Resources: Our Computer Lab – I enjoy our computer lab, we have a special program we get to use to help us prepare for the LPN Liscense test. Its basically like practice tests and at the end it tells you your weak areas and what to study.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Teachers Ae Very Involved – The teachers in the nursing program are involved at everystep to help you succeed and make it through the prgram. They are willing to do tutoring even on fridays when there isnt class there are teachers available 9-9 for tutoring. They give you second chances for testing if you do bad and make sure you always have the oppertunity to improve your grades.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My Program – Well the school has some pretty good instructor the curriculum is broken down into a 15 month course the registration process is basically a small process which involves maintaining some medical information and transcriptions, everyone studies when and at there own pace.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Cost Is Expensive – Well the program at my college is expensive and my program for nursing I think is the most expensive course offered, although the FA office do offer sources it is really your job to apply. Student grants and loans are optional and most student apply for them, the program is well worth the time and diploma that you achieve but still the cost when your coming out of your pocket is a little high.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Improving the LPN Program – I think that my institution offers a good program and in a appropriate amount of time the tuition is sort of high but the program offers advancement to the health care individuals considering furthering there education as a nurse also pursuing your license in your program of selection.

College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: College Experience – My school has been a experience that I truly will not forget. The teachers are characters themselves they prefer to just get paid then actually teach and help you learn. The financial aid is overwhelemed by so many students that they overlook you and at the end you get screwed over by them.
