Hi. I just finished my first semester at Darton. It was over the summer. I must say that it was a very positive experience. I loved all of the instructors. Here's the deal, you get out what you put in. You get what you get. There are no handouts or favortism (I need to learn how to spell, LOL). The instructors are very fair. It was ALOTTTTT of work. One thing that I can say is that I'd rather go through a tough program like Darton's and know my stuff when I'm done, than to go to a so called 'easy' school. Darton is very tough but I loved every minute of my first semester. You have to realize that Darton has a very good reputation for it's nursing program, additionally we have been approve for the new BSN program! Throughout the semester, you will have two classes, fundamentals and pharmacology, plus a fundamentals lab every week. The classes were very technologically driven, which i loved btw. We had access to classroom and lab videos to view at our leisure. We didn't do clinicals till the last two weeks of classes. The best advice that I can give to is to study hard because Darton is a tough program but you can do it. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a good nursing education. Good Luck!
