I went through Metro (well, am going...almost done.) Yes, there is a lot of B.S. I think realistically for nurses that have been in practice for awhile most if not all of it is B.S, and that is anywhere you decide to go. I recently finished a health assessment class and they wanted us to do a complete cardiac/pulmonary exam -- my forte, as a critical care nurse -- well, guess what? They didn't have us listening to anterior breath sounds at all. They didn't have us checking CMS in the LEs. My instructor didn't know where the posterior tib pulses were (um...no...not on the outside of the foot.) I personally found that a lot of the community faculty were far from experts on the subjects they were teaching (e.g. Health Assessment taught by a midwife, family nursing taught by a PhD'ed MICU nurse.) I do think the staff/tenured faculty are good ... just not some of the others. My professors in nursing theory and nursing research were excellent, exactly what I would have expected from a large public university.
That said, it's cheap, and it has a decent local reputation. If you want to do it fast though there aren't a lot of options -- if you have ALL your generals done, you can do it in two years part time, but accelerating that is difficult. Most people take 3 years to do Metro's program, so you might want to look at your degree plan and how long it is going to take you as well. If you have any specific questions, you can shoot me a private mail.
