3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: If it was less expensive everyone could do it

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I will be a licensed nurse

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall I've learned a lot about nursing and have even applied some of the skills I've learned.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: The most we do online is the NCLEX integration course and medical terminology.

1 College Junior

Campus Resources: There is a library but all that's in it is computers and student loan pamphlets. Sometime there are even some listed job postings.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: The WiFi connection is always in and out, some of us can't even connect. It even depends on where you are on campus if it will work or not.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There is a variety of students

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The workload is a lot and we are held to a high standard as nursing students, but if this is the type of career you wish to follow then it's all worth it.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The study sessions are a major help especially since we have about 6-8 chapters to cover a week!

3 College Junior

Facilities: The only thing I can think of is the study sessions that are sometimes held 2 hours before class or on a Saturday depending if the majority of us are available.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe the education is worth the tuition costs, but I wish there was more help with financial assistance and financial situation flexibility.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Starting at Gurnick, you immediately need to figure out a planned way to study because the material is thrown at you and you will be tested on it the following week! Once that is established, your main focus from there is maintaining good academic standing and making sure you get ALL assignments in on time because one missed assignment can mean the difference between failing or passing. Academically, this school is okay especially if you're used to a fast paced life, but administration wise is a different story. Everyone including staff and instructors are very nice and friendly, but the moment you miss a payment you are at risk for being dropped and the same goes for not having all of your immunizations in on time. There is no flexibility in that aspect, but other than that, the school is okay.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Lots of hands on pafient care as well as on site hands on experience which turn I to internships which can lead to job opportunities

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Class registration process was fast easy and the staff was very helpful with explaing requirements and processes of upcomimg classes. Have not entered into the classes yet as the first portion was on line

College Sophomore

Career Services: This school is more of a trade school

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My prerequisite courses were on line and lectures done at my pace daily. The instructor was very prompt in answering any questions or concerns that would arise. And the staff at Gurnick was also friendly and helpful.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: The school was not very flexible. Many students had to rearrange work schedules within the week to attend last minute changes made by the school. Many students were frustrated with having little information on clinical rotation changes and also extra hours that had to be met.

2 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition was very expensive. Since the yearly grants changes/ were overestimated, additional thousands were added onto our "unfunded balances", which many of us students paid from our own pockets. Extra fees such as payments for graduation outfits were not included in our tuition. Additional fees regarding finger printing and papers that had to be sent out for taking our state boards, were not discussed in our financial meetings.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: There was a range of diversity at the school. The typical student would be hardworking, married/single with kids and trying to provide for their family through a means of pursing a higher education.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Majority of the online courses involved test preparation for the future state board test. Most questions gave explanations of correct answers so we can learn.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The students were amazing and we grew as a family. Some staff members were also very kind. However, my biggest concern was the amount of money we had to put into tuition and additional requirements, that many of us students were unaware of. It was very unorganized and many situations/ events were brought up NOT in a timely manner. It was difficult for some students to take work off.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: We haven't managed to organize staff members who will help look for job placements for the students of this year. However, in the past, I know they had an amazing placement coordinator.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: As an LVN student, the workload is abundant. The internships at different clinical sites can be far and draining but this is expected as a future nurse. I'm concern about the job placements after graduation, as we do not have a staff coordinator for this position.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Like most campuses, there are great and not so great professors. The registration process is long but once you're in the program, it is very fast paced and "time flies". Like mentioned, workload is abundant.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: I think the social scene is one of the most unique aspect of this school. There is a huge range of cultural and social differences from each and everyone who attends this school. This is what the medical field is about. It helps relate to our academic understanding of becoming culturally competent and aware of each and every single person's unique background. We also get to spend a year with our classmates and become a family.
