I am a mother of three, and have had previous experience with a secondary education school. In 2010 I attended a technology center and after one year received my medical assistant degree only to learn that there truly was not any jobs in the medical department. At the time of attending my previous school, I had a 4 year old, 7 year old and 8 year old. My 8 year old is disable. I had an instructor actually tell me that my life was not that hectic. Graduated from the course, and moved to Ohio and decided that I was going back to school and going to presume my dream of being an RN. This is what I have dreamt about doing since I was a child. By far, Rio Grande has been amazing. The instructors are there to help you succeed as long as you are willing to put forth the effort. I LOVE this College, and think the world of all my current professors. Not once do I feel like I am just a number, or just someone paying their light bill. It has been a great experience thus far, and I can only see it staying this great.
