4 College Junior

Academic Experience: With my major at this school, I am able to perform hands on activities. The work may be intense but the outcome from it is definitely worth it. As far as job opportunities, I feel as though it would be too difficult to find an organization that will employ me

Student Body: From what I have experienced, everyone seems very friendly and outgoing. The environment is calm and paced. The campus is easily accessible. I was very impressed

Campus Resources: This is a small school, and so if you choose "everyone knows your name". It is a non-residential type, and people come from many outlying areas. Therefore, campus life is restricted to classes, clinicals and the library. "Academic Programs" are mostly inflexible - if you do not transfer credits in you have a set course load with very little flexibility. This is, however, what most students here are seeking - if you are seeking something else, you are probably seeking a higher degree.

Campus Resources: There is a dedicated "Student Success Counselor" who assists struggling students in many ways - study skills, life skills, etc. There is a Mental Health Counselor available for students who is friendly and puts students at ease and is helpful for even minor problems. The librarians are above par and very interested in helping students in any way they can, and there is a career counselor who regularly communicates with even new students. Financial Aid counselors are limited in their ability to assist, hence the "minus" on the A.

Student Body: This is a strictly nursing school, offering both a vocational certificate (LVN) and Associate's (ADN). It does not attract the same types of students that a 4 year college would attract. The student body is overwhelmingly adults who have been out of High School for 5 or more years (LVN) and nurses who want to further their career (ADN). Since it is an accelerated program, the dedication level is high (those who cannot devote the required dedication fail/drop out).

College Senior

Online Courses: Not all courses are offered online, only a select few of the general education courses. All nursing courses are on campus.

Overall Experience: Good school – Teachers really want to teach you, they are willing to do anything to help you learn and even come in earlier to teach you hands on if you need help. This program is fast paced with each semester that lasts 3 months. There is no time to waste so if you are not a dedicated person that doesn't really want to be a Nurse to help people, but to get money, I doubt you will succeed. It is very expensive but an investment I'm willing to make. I am at a hospital right now doing clinicals getting hands on. Just the other day I gave my first 2 insulin shots to a patient. Instructors are tough, but I believe this helps you learn. Its amazing how much you can learn in 6 months, I am halfway a Nurse :) Our campus just exteded, we have a nice new library where you can actually study and not hear what the other person is writing like our old library. If you have to get a hold of people like financial aid, sometimes it may take a while for them to get back to you, so its best to go to the campus. We have a manaquin that breaths, and one that gives birth! Last week I learned how to insert a Foley Catheter. You learn alot! You will get close to people quickly simply because you will see them everyday. It is a very intense program, so you have to be mentally and physically ready to be able to achieve in this program.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Most Here to Get in and Get Out – Majority of the people going to school there are working class people who are trying to finish school for a better education and get in and get out. They are older not too many 20 somethings.

Overall Experience: Great for Career – There aren't that many social events because it is a career based school. However the connections that have with some of the healthcare providers in the area is pretty good. Getting the right education is more of the concern. Overall, I'm content with my school experience

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Our Little Lab – we have 2 labs available to us, there is nothing bad i can say about it as it taakes care of all my needs.
