The school is multicultural having students from multiple countries and walks of life. It is easily accessible by bus or train for people who do not drive. I made good friends from diverse backgrounds who are very cordial. I had a good working relationship with a handful of professors who take their time to clarify information you do not get or guidance for a project or paper.

I am so grateful for the education I received here at BCCC. When I look back, I really used to think that the Nursing program was like boot camp. I remember our instructor telling us on the very 1st day of class- " Look at who is sitting next to you. They may not be here for very long". Whoa ! That scared us .Our class started out with 112 students. We had 18 in our graduating class at the end. The few. The proud . I don't think for 1 minute that I could have gotten a better education ANYWHERE- even at an expensive Ivy league school . My clinical experience, though at the time I would be shaking in my shoes, I am so appreciative of how hard it was and how it made me a better person and a much better nurse. I can't say it enough- "thank you "- to my great instructors !
