The experience while attending North Hennepin Community College both in preparing for the Nursing program and while in the program was a very positive one. They have a great pool of professors who make attending college such a great experience. All the help provided by them as questions/problems arose was much appreciated. The nursing staff provided a very positive learning experience. The simulation lab in the Nursing Department was excellent in giving students a hands-on learning experience in understanding concepts of nursing. The library/resource center has excellent resources to assist the student in preparing for lessons.

I liked how close it is to home and that they were extreamly helpful towards all my needs. I actually enjoyed going to school every day and I ended up meeting a lot of fun and active people . The teachers were almost always helpful and available to answer any questions I had with any given assignment.
