As I've said before, the tuition and financial aid process is quite simple and straightforward. The tuition is cheap but also great. You do learn a lot in the classes. I do think the value of my tuition could have cost more but for some reason or another it is cheaper than at most colleges. So I am thankful for that. I can say my experience with the financial aid office was good. They were able to answer my questions and were able to help me out. Tips for getting financial aid here, I would say to go to their office and ask questions. They will help you out!

I am basing my review on my classmates who are in the same nursing program that I am in. First, in order to be accepted into the program, you must have passed the strict eligibility requirements. It is a very competitive program and it is based on a point system. Those with the best grades are sure to be accepted.

Once in the program, students must maintain a test average of at least 75. There are no excused clinical absences, they are punished with points off. The overall goal is to do the best to one's ability because we have all worked so hard just to get accepted.

We are currently enrolled in 12 hours of courses in what is normally a 16 week session, but ours is a 12 week session. Dedication and time management are a requirement to make it. I would say that my classmates and I are very supportive of one another as evidenced by our general concern for one another's academic progress. We spend more time with one another than we do our own families/significant others.
