Although the workload may be intensive with some of the programs offered at Charles A. Jones, the instructors generally guide you through the process. The most well known program at this school is their Vocational Nursing program because it is so accelerated. Other programs that are offered include a Certified Nursing Assistant program, Pharmacy Tech program, Medical Assistant program, and various other technical career programs. The professors are helpful and know you by name because the class sizes are usually quite small.

Compared to other accelerated programs, Charles A. Jones is one of the cheaper options for the program I am interested in (Vocational Nursing). The education you receive is also worth the experience you get while at this school. If you work hard and are passionate about what you are learning, the professors notice that and are much more willing to help guide you through the process. The financial aid office is also very helpful in helping you go over the kind of aid you may need/be available for.

The Vocational Nursing program at Charles A. Jones is fast paced, intensive, and rewarding all at the same time. Due to the fact that the program is only a little over 10 months (including the prerequisite courses), there is a lot of studying that must be accomplished outside of class. When I took their CNA course, I was set up for a job at the site where we did our clinical work. My teachers approached me and told me that the nursing home we had been going to was interested in hiring me as soon as I passed my certification test. I think the program is a great way to further your interest and career in nursing.
