I just graduated from NWCC 2 weeks ago. I want to offer my opinion about the program for anyone seeking admission.
The instructors, for the most part, are pretty solid/caring individuals. They often go out of their way for the students with one caveat- you must be a part of the "in crowd"- usually people with prior health care experience. Outside of that particular group you will face an uphill battle the entire program.
Politics play the biggest part in your overall experience there. Instructors at this school can AND will do whatever they want. It's completely at their discression as to whether or not you pass.
LET ME REITERATE. IF YOU HAVE AN "A" IN THEORY AND AN "A" IN CLINICAL WITH NO CRITICAL ERRORS/ANY ERRORS THEY CAN STILL FAIL YOU.......AND IT HAPPENS. THIS ISN'T HYPOTHETICAL.
that being said, if you're still bent on attending this program LAY LOW. Stay under the radar and do your best to not rub any instructor the wrong way. Kiss up to them and above all else, DO NOT EXPRESS WISHES TO DO ANY ADVANCED PRACTICE NURSING. Believe it or not, they think it makes you look arrogant and not caring(even though I completely disagree)
I'd be glad to answers questions if you have any about the program.
