3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Like most colleges you have your good, awesome, and horrible professors. There is some professors you will fall in love with and some you will find hard to work with. As long as you're a good student you'll pass. Registration is as easy as one, two, three. Nursing, and EMS seem to be the most popular here at AHC.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I want to attend the nursing program it has very good rates and the students that have attended it have been very successful. The only bad thing is that it is such a long waiting list. Also, they make you get your CNA, to LVN then RN. You can't just jump into the program. I'm sure there is a waiting list because it's such a good program!

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: On the whole, this school is excellent! There is a wide variety of classes and the registration process is easy.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The specific program I'm in seems to be managed rather poorly. Classes are offered sporadically and some of the instructor are quite frustrating.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The registration process for classes can be a little frustrating. About a month or so before classes become available to register they open up the class search. You use the class search to make your schedule but depending on the day of your registration some of those classes you need can already be filled so that makes it so you have to change your schedule.
