  • Recommended September 08, 2009 - Good school for tech. programs. The staff in the nursing dept. are very unprofessional and will tell you a million different stories about how to get into a class. So beware and get everything in writing. The head of the school has no control over them either, so your screwed. - Posted by Student/Alumni
