    My Experience

    From my point of view,the school is fine .

    About The Staff

    To those that are considering on attending this school as a transfer student, PLEASE think wisely. Before they accept you into their Nursing program you have to take Concepts of Nursing and Pathophysiology. After spending all the time and money to take the courses they rejected me without an explanation with a 3.8 GPA. The nursing administration staff is heinous. There was absolutely zero support from them when you were able to reach them. The lead adviser hardly replies to your emails. If you have other options, try other nursing schools.
