Academic Experience: Academic Experience at West Coast University – The unique aspects of my program at West Coast University is that all the students that attend there are nursing majors. I like how all the students are nursing majors because we all have the same goal and common interest. The workload and curriculum of our school is challenging because our school want their students to be the best they can be when they become a Register Nurse.

Academic Experience: Transfer Credits – The amount of transfer credits weren't satisfactory with what was announced in the informational meeting prior to applying. They went over classes generally and never specified that some classes needed to be within a year of the start of the core program. They only said one year and I assumed it was withing the the year prior to enrolling which created a huge inconvenience.

Online Courses: Online Course – Online courses are incredibly easy. All the ones I have completed require you to post ideas and post to other's ideas, which is a waste of time. Most people take online classes for an easy A and less time spent studying and in class.

Campus Resources: My School's Uniqueness – I love that my school is an acceralted program. I am a returning student and getting my education completed sooner is a great benefit to me. I absolutely love nursing and knowing that I will be finished ealier so that I may start my career is a huge benefit. I also love that most people in my school are in the same major. Its nice to be with people who have the same passion and interests.

Overall Experience: Overall West Coast University Is a Great School – The reason I consider West Coast University a really good school is because they consider people's needs. Like they have a student union which has several tables with microwaves, vending machines and free water. The class are small and courses are accelerated which I love the faster I get school done the better. It is a bit tough but life is tough. This school is expensive but if I had to choose schools all over again I would pick this school.

Career Services: My school offeres a career service department that helps you get intouch with new grad programs. They also do a monthly posting on what hospitals are hiring and in what departments. There is no alumni program.

Campus Resources: We have a good computer lab along with single computer work stations. The internet usually has a good connection, however the wireless often doesnt work. As for printing we have a large copy/printer taht works great!! There is no need for a personal computer but it makes things easier!

Academic Flexibility: No Waiting List – The reason why I chose this university was because they have a great nursing program and you don't have to worry about waiting 2-3 years to get into the nursing program unlike other colleges/universities nowadays.

They schedule all your classes so everything is planned out for you from your first day till the day you graduate. I like how the program is accelerated and you are guaranteed a spot in the nursing program as long as you pass your classes.

Student Body: The Student Body at WCU comprises of people of all ages and all ethnic backgrounds. Since WCU is a primarily a nursing school, it is quite inspiring to know that everyone is working towards the same goal and it is quite evident. Everyone is really friendly and focused on advancing into the nursing program so it creates bond between everyone at WCU.

It's just a shame that WCU does not offer any outside Student Body activities/clubs to help fortify student interactions outside of class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Teachers Equal Student Success – WCU has a great teaching staff requiring that all faculty possess a master's degree in their primary fields of study.
They are all very knowledgeable and helpful and keep you motivated in performing well in your classes.
Albeit there are some teachers that aren't so great, it still doesn't change the fact that they are all gifted in their respected fields and it is often translated in student success.

Overall Experience: I like how this school is fast paced. Although, I am not too happy in the way academic rules are always being changed since it is a new program; it becomes a disadvantage to some students.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I havent really spent much time with the financial aid, but the time I did spend made me feel like the counselor didnt care.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is nothing really special, they just got a Student body president, vice president, etc. I think they are trying to change things to be better for the students activity wise, but I will be done soon so I don't really pay attention.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would choose the school again, because of the quick education you get. It is not for students who cannot do most of the learning on their own. There is alot of busy work and not enough teaching.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Too Little – This school does not give full information to it's potential students when they are trying to enroll. Things are made to sound better than they are. For the pre-requsites the teachers are very good, but when you are in the nursing classes,l which are the most important, the teachers don't give the information they should and mostly just want to give you enough information to pass their test.

4 College Senior

Career Services: Career Service Center – I have not had the chance to be able to use this service yet. I graduate in June. However, in this economy it is HARD to find a job at all. The career service center would be helpful, they cannot create jobs.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Very Diverse – The are every kind on our campus, male and female, younger and older, and every ethnic background. Most everyone is honest and professional, however there are a few (and I mean a few) people that have been caught cheating and are prepared to pass with or without the knowledge they need. However, there are some on every college campus in the US.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Private Nursing School – The school is an accelerated program to get you in and out and into the nursing field in a shorter amount of time than your community colleges or universities. Your spot for the next term is guaranteed, however for some the schedules are not flexible. I have the privilege at this time not to work. The classes may be a little too fast, like a cram session for the next term. My only complaint was a teacher that we had that was not providing us with a constructive class to learn quickly. The school did however respond to our complaints and we have a new teacher, but we are now so far behind....not sure if we can catch up because the terms are already so short.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I haven't taken a online course, but i heard that it is the same as going to school. It may be more flexible for others, so that is why people probably take online courses

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Studying for this school has been tough, but the end results are fantastic. The school gives us two days of lecture and the rest of the week to study.
