Lack of help with job placement.

Other comments

Hands on training was my favorite part. Doing actual procedures helped me learn faster. Dealing with a real person was easier than I thought when reading it on text books.

This program is tough but I feel that it really does prepare you for the NCLEX. The professors can be difficult at times but over time students and professors see eye to eye. They include NCLEX ATI tutoring and integrate it well within the program.
