I am in the KCKCC program and I've found the instructors and the faculty to be warm, caring and compassionate. It's difficult to get your foot in the door, but that is true of any nursing program that is worth anything. I think that nursing in general requires a "never give up" attitude and that attitude will serve you well no matter what program you're in.
I've found it comforting to remember that my instructors could be making a lot more money if they were working in a hospital setting. Knowing that they're passionate about educating future generations of nurses has been enough fuel to keep me going strong. Best of luck to all of you, no matter what program you're in. The fact that you're seeking answers and helping others along with this site shows your "never give up" attitude!
