When i heard about the medical programs at this school, and the face that there was not much of a waiting list for the nursing or respiratory program. I thought i would go to the school and apply for one of the programs. When i got there, the staff was so friendly, and knowledgeable about the programs the school had to offer. I think i will enjoy it here, and enjoy my program of study and obtain the education i will need be a success in my career.
