4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like the student/professor ratio. All the professors I have had so far have been extremely helpful and available. The course load is hefty but appropriate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am just starting the ultrasound program so I am unable to determine what the job/internship prospects are. The Center for Learner Success has been helpful in planning out courses and giving me suggestions for the current semester.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I was able to transfer several applicable general education courses from my previous degree into my program at PA College. They also used a course from my previous degree as the required elective for my program. I am glad my previous degree didn't go to waste!

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are not for everyone because it does not give the one on one/hands on experience that some people need to really absorb the information. For me, the online courses that I've taken so far have not be extremely difficult so I haven't had a problem with it.

3 College Junior

Career Services: From what I've heard, students have good prospects in finding a job post-graduation.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm just starting my actual ultrasound courses but so far so good. The course load seems pretty intense but I know it will prepare me for my career after graduation. I feel encouraged by the program instructors and department head that I will have the support that I need to succeed in this program.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like that the programs only have 15-20 students so that we can have more hands on experience and also get to know the directors of the program/instructors.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: For nursing, it is a very difficult major. The school specializes in nursing but the program should be difficult and the work load is a lot. Sometimes I question myself if I can handle this school

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really love this school, they focus almost all your classes towards health care and they are all equally hard but worth it. It's a challenge, but so is health care. I love the hands on classes that help tactile or visual learners. I highly recommend this school plus you focus on just school, I wish there was dorms on campus to get the full college effect but other then that. Love this college.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: This college allows students to start doing patient care very quickly upon entering the program. I love that this school and program is very hands on

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had the best college experience. The professors truly want you to succeed and are available to help.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Included in your tuition is a nurse pack and ATI books. They have many resources and help for the students. Their curriculum focuses on NCLEX style testing. This helps you prepare for the NCLEX throughout your courses. This school wants to make sure you can pass the NCLEX after graduating from the RN program.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is very focused on healthcare and is great at providing excellent preparation for my career as a nurse. The instructors and staff are great and extremely helpful. However the tuition is high and hard for an independent student to pay without family assistance or private loans as an option.

Overall Experience: Very helpful nursing advisers, the location and great reviews this college received from past and present students. I like that they have rolling admissions, and they use work experience in the medical field as a way of deciding the acceptance of each student. It is not all based on grades.

Career Services: PCHS states a high percentage of graduates are able to achieve employment immediately post-graduation. However, several students struggle to get a job.

Online Courses: I prefer taking online courses opposed to classroom. Due to having your books in front of you, online courses are slightly more challenging for test-taking. You can use your books during your exam, and have a countdown timer to finish. The professors have students engage in online discussions, and often participate in them as well. Homework may include researching a topic, posting the link and writing a summary. It also may include writing a few papers. Taking courses online requires self-discipline, but is worth not having to wake up early to drive to class.

Campus Resources: The campus holds a handful of activities during the school year. A welcome back tailgaiting party (with food) is held at the Burle parking lot. Various fundraising activities are at the campus throughout the year. The multi-cultural club holds a party once a year. There you can try a variety of ethnic foods. The Student Council provides different events at the college, including providing donuts during final's week for the students.

Academic Experience: Majoring in Nursing is challenging and rewarding. It's required to complete one semester of gen-eds prior to enrolling in nursing. Each semester has an increase in both classroom and clinical time. Workload also increases as you are in a higher semester. Professors provide a note handout on the day's topic, where you can also write additional notes. The majority of clinicals are at Lancaster General Hospital, which is down the street. Some clinicals are offered at other locations, depending upon the semester the student is in. However, there aren't any internship positions available. ADN courses are only available in the classroom, but the ADN to BSN program allows you to have either classroom or online courses.

Academic Experience: Professors at PCHS are laid back regarding addressing them. Several are willing to provide additional help to a student if needed. Classroom workload for gen-eds are average. Class registration depends upon the amount of credits a student has. More credits allows the student to register for classes earlier than the remaining student population.
