    My Experience

    The most unorganized program that you will find. This program is one of the oldest in it's area, and it is still being run like it's brand new. You have to be willing to roll with the punches. The available clinical sites are a joke. A lot of times you have to complete all of your clinicals in the final month of class when you should be studying for finals. Lean on your fellow classmates, because the program is terrible. The only thing good I can really say about this program is its cost, which initially interested me. But it's like they always say, you get what you pay for, and in this place, you truly do.

    About The Staff

    The staff is really hit or miss. Some instructors are terrific, while others shouldn't be instructing the hospital janitor. Unfortunately, they run all of the great professors off and you are left with well...what's left. This program and its staff really continue to go downhill.

    Things To Know

    They really train towards med-surg nursing. You get very little experience in different specialties when in clinical.
