Hi OP! Believe it or not, I was actually in their first nursing class, I love this school, and am considering going on for their BSN program.
Pros= CollegeAmerica is a school that is passionately invested and cares about all their students. You will get your own, free laptop computer, your books are free, you will get free scrub tops & pants & other equipment, they listen to their students, the staff is friendly & caring & their financial aid department really works with you, unlike many other schools in the Denver area. They also have state of the art equiptment & labs.
Cons = 1.) They are not REGIONALLY accredited -- YET. Once each person from my class, the premier class, passes their NCLEX, they WILL BE accredited. So far, four have passed. The other six, (including myself,) are still waiting to take their
2.) Like most, (if not all,) other nursing programs
, there is drama. It's very intense. VERY INTENSE. We have seen a lot of staff turn over & they have been through a couple of directors so far. It's not an easy job. The current Dean/Director is AMAZING & I love her to pieces, but she has a big job.
My advice: Give it a couple months. Wait until they get regionally accredited.
