I enjoyed Brightwood. I love the fact that we're learning from either previous or current nurses on the field! Also most teachers explained information in many different ways and were able to refer situations into the field to help understand easier. I don't have much bad to say, by one thing that stood out a lot is there was time were communication was lacking with what materials were next and or other things. Over hearing some one my classmates they had a hard time getting a hold of their reps and financial aid people. I was lucky enough not to have that problem and was blessed with lovely rep and counseling. With out them and my support team I wouldn't be able to get through the program! Definitely coming back to complete and get my RN!
Review Brightwood College - San Diego
Brightwood college overall has been a great experience. I am currently in the RN nursing program and love every minute of it! I can't wait to take my skills out into the real world!
The biggest advantage is the accelerated pace. You don't have to wait on a list for years at a time in order to just start the program. Here, I am able to earn my RN within 2 years, and that's WITH prerequisites included. The biggest disadvantage is that Kaplan IS NOT regionally accreditated. This is a big problem if you plan to go get your BSN or MSN later on. Not many schools, especially UC/CSU will accept Kaplan because of this.
