I see you were interested in ADN program at Pima. I started in August at the Mesa Campus and love it. So far the program has been nothing short of wonderful. The professors are wonderful and very very educated. Classes are hard and they expect a lot from us but the professors are very helpful. My class has a little over 30 students but we have a minimum of 5 teachers with all of us in lab. We start clinicals in Jan. and I'm nervous but excited.
As for the expensive tuition, yes it's a lot. I went back and fourth with it for a long time, but when I realized I still had at least a year to go to get into a community college the decision was easy for me. Now that I've started PIMA I'm glad because I know we as students get more one on one with the teachers than the students at community college. We also get the help from the students that are further along in the program. I have a mentor that is in block 3 (at PIMA she is called a Sophomore) and she is so helpful.
I hope my opinion helps. If you have any questions about the program please feel free to ask!
