Hi guys, I attend Carrington,Reno and I'm in semester 5 of 6. I just want to give you a little heads up on what you're going into. The program is tough. Sure you have easy classes such as communications, sociology, etc but the bulk of the course is very time consuming so be ready. On the flip side, Carrington stole all the best nursing instructors from WNC, UNR, and TMCC. I really can't emphasize enough how important the instruction is once you get to the core nursing classes. The instructors give you their cell numbers, and I've called many times on the weekend to spend 45 mins with my clinical instructor going over care plan details. You'll always hear bad things, and I've read most on google, but isn't that the case anywhere? I have friends who went through TMCC and berated an instructor via facebook. It's important to get a clear idea of what you expect so go over this with ---- at your interview, talk with other students (especially the higher grades), and then pace yourself. Nursing school
is not a sprint to the finish, it's more a distance race so don't burn out early. I'm not doing this for Carrington, I'm doing this because I want you to have as good an experience as I've had. There is another online school you can get credit for and enroll in for the associates degree to BSN and you can take this all the way to a masters program. It's up to you how far you go, I can only encourage that you have fun doing it. BTW, I encourage you speak to higher grades because they have a more complete picture of the program, not just the science and liberal arts classes. Being able to pull these classes together in how they relate to nursing is very important. Good luck with whatever you choose.
