This school is a miserable joke. The teachers do try hard, but the actual staff that is supposed to help you figure out what classes you need is pathetic. I have been going here for 4 years now, I'm a "honor student", and I have taken literally over 100 credits and have NOTHING to show for it. It's nearly impossible to achieve anything at this God forsaken school. You need papers signed or a question answered? Open up your next three weeks because you'll be transferred to ten thousand buildings and basically have walked the distance around the globe four times to get anything accomplished.

Being an HVAC-R student at Thomas Nelson is great. All of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and up to date on the latest industry equipment. There are many training units in the classroom and the split between classroom and lab time is about 50/50. The workload is not terribly demanding however, if the basics of refrigeration and thermodynamics are not understood then failure is inevitable. Part of the associates degree requires a semester working in the field and there are companies in the area hiring people from the program every month. Overall I feel that being an HVAC-R major at Thomas Nelson Community College is a great experience.

THEN you'll get a letter in the mail saying your notion was denied because of so and so reasons, after you were told that it would be fine and it would be accepted. Also the two-year plan is a joke, you'll be here for about 7 years to get any kind of degree. You can't a hire a decent staff but you can hire ten million food trucks every week for a food party. Don't waste your time. If you are going to go a community college around here, just do what I should have done when I graduated in 2012 and just go to Tidewater Community College. If I could have put negative stars, I would. Campus safety is a joke. All the security does is drive around in their dumb golf carts and write everyone parking tickets. It's a sad miserable school. don't waste you time. You're better off in jail. At least they provide SOMETHING. It's a joke, a sad miserable joke.
