Incredibly expensive for what you're receiving! They are incredibly unprofessional, unbelievably under qualified staff, and unfriendly staff which leaves you with no one to communicate or ask questions.Most of the teachers are inexperienced in the subject the school hires them to teach.They allow incompetent teachers to provide us with illegitimate information that will not in any way benefit us as future nurses. They are so severely under staffed that they will hire anyone who applies, which for how much we pay is honestly unfortunate for us. They also have the poorest clinical placing staff, they do not tell you when or where you're scheduled until a week before the quarter, won't work with your schedule if you have obligations, and are frankly very rude when you try communicating with them. The Administrative office also is notorious for having favoritism with the students, allowing some students to continue failing classes or behaving inappropriately without any consequences. I would never recommend this school to anyone! If credits from here could transfer I would be gone. I absolutely love becoming a nurse, just wish I pursued my education at another institution.

DSN has a hard time keeping teachers. It very common to have your instructor abruptly switched with another (who is unfamiliar with the syllabus and changes all expectations) sometimes without explanation. Some teachers are sarcastic and condescending. It is very common in multiple classes to see a large discrepancy between what is taught and what is tested on. There are required teacher evaluations and more than once a teacher has become vindictive and singled out certain classes, handing out extra tests and not giving points on them or withholding power points/notes/info.

Its a very small school, one building with an area of a second building. theres a LRC and a Computer lab. The Sims lab is great, but its tiny! Not meant to be a huge college campus. We need better Wi-Fi, and we have to find a solution to parking. Were in lo-do by Coors Field, and parking is expensive, and apparently we do not have enough students to do rtd passes.
