I am a nursing student at WCTC currently in my 2nd semester. I took my pre-req. courses between WCTC and MATC, but stayed at WCTC for my actual clinicals/nursing school
. I also heard a lot of horror stories about how WCTC is super tough, and is known for "weeding" people out, and this really was the case during my gen. education courses (especially the sciences). However, although the actual nursing program is very demanding, it really is an awesome program. The staff is so supportive, and because the class sizes aren't that big (20-30 usually), you can always get direct help if you need it. Also, WCTC has one of the highest Nursing Boards pass rates in the state! This is in part because of the challenging program, and the fact that they really prepare you for your boards and your future as a nurse. I'm not too familiar with MATC's clinical program, but I do know that they were close to losing their accredidation not long ago (as so many schools
seem to be), and so I think that that speaks volumes of the program. It might me easier, but it is not to the claiber of WCTC. I hope this helps, and best of luck in pursuing your nursing future!
