It's a for-Profit School, What Do You Expect?? Look, the counselors work on commission so remember that and be sure to ask a lot of questions about the program you are interested in because they are not just going to come out and tell you everything. Like for example, how far are the clinical sites? Understand that locations vary...some are only 10 miles from campus but others are up to 30 miles from campus and you will be going to clinicals (if required for your program) two to three days a week.

Also, with it being a numbers game around here if you have any issues with students in your class being disruptive, disrespectful or even going as far as to become confrontational and aggressive with other student AND faculty members...don't expect them to do anything about it. It is going to be your problem and you are going to have to either deal with it or learn to ignore it. Trust me I am going through that now. They will not expel anyone around here, even if they more than 100% deserve it because they are more worried about the $$ than the well being and safety of their students.

The instructors that I personally have had just read the book to you in class. They don't seem to offer much else in the way of personal experience or any other means of education aside from the text books.

If you can deal with it...the accelerated programs here will get you in and out and off to work quickly. But be advised that at least the 2nd floor (nursing program) is in all kinds of ways messed up.

You start the LVN program as a class and stay with this class until graduation. There are different instructors, mostly a core teacher for each of the three levels, plus occasional teachers for special classes, such as clinicals or labs. Our class is rather large starting with 40 students, then currently at 30 students three months in. The teachers have been great.

My experience has been extremely good. I left the school with a medical problem and returned. While I was out the students, teacher, and director kept up with my progress. The program is hard, it is an accelerated program. I will tell you it is thorough. Passing the NCLEX will be hard and Kaplan will help you pass. I ask the teacher many questions and she is always available. No public school teacher ever gave me as much personal attention. I love the education I am receiving.
