I only went to CGCC for block 3 and block 4. I actually got into block 3 because of the lawsuit drama.
Compared to the experience I had 6 years prior at Gateway in the LPN program, I think CGCC is a great program. The teachers actually work in the nursing field and one of them works to help develop NCLEX test questions.
Yeah, it's difficult. I think it's very fair and, in fact, at the end of each block we were asked to meet with the director so we could give her our feed back about the instructors, the learning resources, and whatever other questions or concerns we have.
CGCC has one of the highest NCLEX pass rates of any school in the state- including bachelors' programs.
And let's be honest- nursing school sucks, it's stressful and consumes your life, no matter where you go.
