I am so disappointed that I chose this school! They cram 100 students into one classroom. We now have a new president who has chosen to make the test questions up himself which is a total disaster because he leaves out pertinent information. I feel sorry for the instructors because even they don't know what is happening from day to day & are becoming frustrated themselves! If I could sum it up for you it would be..NO CONSISTENCY! Lab rats. You would think they would have figured this out by now. I do not suggest any one attend this school at least until they fire the new president which will be soon I suppose & we are all hoping for...

I particularly like that the lengh of programs are short and to the point. I get to do my associate degree in three months and then transition from LPN to RN program takes less thenn a year. It's all about fhe time .
