I chose this institution because my faith in education was slowly fading away. I felt that this was my only shot left, so i took it. I enrolled and now i feel with all this hand-on training i can start working sooner then i thought. I attended 2 other schools before this institute and none of the credits were transferable. I feel as if i wasted 2 years of college., I hope to gain so much more knowledge of this medical field and start my life on the right path.

This institute consists of hard working people, age varies, with jobs and/or families. Students that attend this institute have many responsibilities and seek a faster access to start their career. Students here are easy to communicate with and a very fun environment.

The academic experience is like no other. The program it self is a lot of fun, and the homework isnt really much. Yes we still have to read and do work but whole idea of learning new things drives me too keep moving forward. Though the job opportunities look slim, its still a a good try at.
