I work for a large hospital and I know for a fact HR hesitates on hiring grad nurses from schools like that...just look into in more carefully, even if you use a GI Bill, don't waste it all on a school like that...

Some of the teachers were fantastic.... but many were horrible! I do feel like I learned a lot, however. If I had it to do over at that point in my life, I would have went to a different school and went for the RN program. but no looking back now... and to be honest I am considering the night RN program.
