I am in the LPN program. The school has very good doctor/instructors and several well qualified nurses that are not the best teachers. I was very excited when I started and the instructors for A&P and Pharmacology were tuff, smart and very good at teaching and not just telling. The nurses however are a different story. One nurse seems to be on a power trip and seems to have to much else going on as in another job that takes up most of her pree time making her unsympathetic to the students. Another is very smart and a good teacher but you can barley hear her talk. Another shows up an hour late every day and tends to ramble about personal stories and then runs through a power point telling you but not really teaching half the time. It's tuff to keep up with the constant changes but if you can't do that you may not be a very good nurse(a teaching class might help them). The classrooms are constantly swithcin and the staff seems unable to keep it straight. The staff seems to get agitated with the slightest questioning of the institution or it's policies. The policies seems to change from week to week. Another nurse is very good and I think she is doing right by them students. I am considering a change to another school if it doesn't get more constant. The hardest part is the disorganization. It's hard enough to learn new stuff with out the constant moving of classrooms and switchin of instructors and the changes in curriculum. I'm pretty sure some of the instructors come in blind to each new class, without reading the syllabus or there own power points. It's probably one of the better schools
if they could just keep things more organized, improve the teaching skills and be prepared for the classes. How can you expect the student to be prepared when the instructor is not half the time.. I am going to hang in there. Hopefully they read this and it helps. I am to afraid to bring it up at school for fear of getting on the bad side of the school. Maybe I need to speak out.

My best advise is to stay away from this school.
