I had completed my LPN program from this college as I mention earlier and loved it, currently I am enrolled in RN program and the instructors know what they are talking about. all my instructors are interested in knowing that we learn from them and they enjoy teaching as evident by their behavior. class size is appropriate and during lab they split us to provide enough space so we can learn at the best level we can. Its a vigorous program but that's what I expected from it and that's the way I learn the best, we are tested in a way that we even learn from our tests.

My on campus classes are really fun and I love being around my fellow students. Online is a little more of a challenge to manage but I try to make it work. Our professor is very understanding towards our class. She also will do anything she can to help if we have a problem. As for the work load it's not as much as i first expected when starting school.
