The students, we all helped each other if we could. The teachers were a top-caliber quality. My English teacher who taught English 101, was one of the most informative, intelligent, persons who pushed us to excellence.

There was an perfect combo of learning and the hands on training. A typical day was very insightful and educational. I learned the mechanics of working in a nursing setting.
