Aiken Technical College Reviews
The ATC Nursing Program was a negative experience for me. The program is much more concerned with weeding out than helping students succeed. If you have previous medical knowledge/experience, then you may do well; however, if you are new to the medical field, then you face a tough, uphill battle. Not all professors are created equal and some classes feel like you must teach yourself, as the support just is not there. The grading scale is much tougher than the standard college grading scale and many mandatory assignments/projects do not count toward final grade until AFTER your test scores have been calculated and average 79.5 up. The workload and schedule is grueling and the attendance policy is stringent. I would not trust nor recommend this college for the guidance and support needed to ultimately obtain a nursing degree. Close to 50% of beginning students in my cohort did not make it to the end.
It’s an amazing and socially interactive environment. All I can say is thus far, I’ve experienced sincere and rewarding learning!
My online, prerequisite courses went great. My prerequisite professors were friendly, supportive, and went above and beyond to assist and support me.
