I attended there, just graduated in June. I complained a lot but nursing school is difficult everywhere (we certainly earn our education). They're difficult and the grading scale is steep, but the class size is small and everyone knows you by name. They definitely make sure you work hard for your career, and it made me a better nurse. They gave me a solid education and I was doing things in clinical earlier than most people with 4-year degrees. Don't get me wrong-- I'll get my BSN soon. But to get started as an RN, West Penn was one of the best decisions I've made.
