Half the staff came from Nova U which is great however this is not a brick and mortar school - you only meet once a week for lab and 1 hour lecture a week - really, ONE HOUR! and sometimes the professor skips it so you don't have any at all, and yes all online discussions and weekly quizzes of which the learning environment sucks A as there is NONE. And of course, the cost alone enough to put you in crazy debt so if you start be sure you finish because your tuition will exceed $35K!
You've been warned! Good luck!

So for 40k to finish and find out my hard work is not worth the paper it's printed on??? I might as well start somewhere else and make the necessary sacrifices. In the end it's true. Either you want to be a nurse or you don't. In order to be a nurse you have to quit your job and dedicate 2 years of your life. If you want to be a good nurse just do that stop looking into these mickey mouse schools that are a waste of your money. I spent a year trying to teach myself how to be a nurse.... Find a good school. It's worth it.

I went through a very similar situation with Galen College of Nursing here in San Antonio, Texas. I felt the program was a joke and VERY unorganized. Class schedules changed several times throughout the quarters, as well as class locations. I got out after 3 quarters and NEVER looked back. I agree about these "Mickey Mouse" schools. Ugh.
