Brightwood College - Sacramento Reviews
I started when it was Kaplan, I had the honor of both Valedictorian and the Florence Nightengale Award at graduation. I was in the vocational Nursing program. Over all its decent. I felt there was a lot of drama that got catered to rather than snuffed out. I'd previously been at another private school and had no such dramatic and bullying experiences there, however the dedication of the instructors at Brightwood is what made it worth the while. My original school seemed more concerned with money than my success. The teachers have great information and knowledge to offer those who listen. I recommend this school if you have the drive to keep your head down and strive to be the best you possible. The lab area could greatly do with improvements along with the lab curriculum. It was briefly brushed by many times in my opinion. The clinical settings are varied and appropriate for job skills needed. The staff give you great support here from all departments. I am licensed in CA and ID.
My experience at Brightwood has been Great! The professors are amazing and hey try to do anything to help you progress academically and mentally prepare you for your desired field. I mostly love how everything is hands on. You get to learn and experience what a real life medical situation looks like. It's amazing how much more you learn by being about to actually practice the job yourself in a classroom with nothing but support and motivation.
The school is very unorganized well, at to least the nursing program. Instructors and the Director of nursing have their favorites. Rules apply when they want to. And clinical hours date and times change without enough notice sometimes or maybe I should say most of the time the day before. And don't even look at the calendar they provide bevause, it's not reliable.
