I personally did not graduate from Colby-Sawyer's nursing program, however I did attend and graduate from Colby-Sawyer and therefore know a ton of people who were nursing students and graduated from there. I haven't heard from a single one of them that they did not pass the boards or did not immediately establish a job once they were certified.
I am currently in the nursing program at Colby-Sawyer College. I'm not going to sugar coat it. Its very demanding and stressful. I don't have much time for extra-curricular activities nor do I have much of a social life. Most nursing students are OCD here because of the pressure the program is. But the workload generally decreases as you grow more into the porgram so you will have a good amount of ideal time. Its all about have you manage your time. The faculty are very supportive and encouraging. We have clinicals at Dartmouth, which is awesome. If anyone has questions, feel free to ask me.
