Absolutely love the teachers her and the staff are very friendly and don't let me give up even when I wanted to. I definitely am thinking about going back there to get another degree, maybe a LPN.

Inconvenient class hours.

Other comments

Lots of classroom work and homework. I wish there was maybe an extra day of clinicals to become more familiar with medications and what they’re being given for. Other than that, it was a great class.
