Overall, my experience at the Sacramento Carrington campus was pleasant. I would say that I had many resources there that were easily accessible and many of the staff members and instructors were very knowledgable and eager to help. I think that the dean and the staff were continuously trying their best to make this campus the best that it could be and really set the students up for success while enrolled and following completion of the programs. The ability to do classes online and on campus made getting my degree extremely easy. The programs they offer are all very useful and in demand making it easy to start up your career once your program is complete. I would say that sometimes it is confusing to know who to talk to with certain things but overall everyone is super nice and willing to help with whatever problem you may be faced with while enrolled with them.

I took quite a few online classes during my time with Carrington for my first degree. I did 6 week courses that were fast paced yet straight forward to follow along with. The instructors online are available to help whenever you need them and they were all very willing to help. I would also say that the courses were easy to understand and straight forward. The college uses canvas which allows you to access your classes, grades, classmates, books, emails, syllabus and more. I think that the online courses were the best part about the program and I would highly recommend this to anyone since it makes it easy to have a job as well as continue your education.
I will be starting the LVN to RN program at Carrington College Sacramento in less than a week. So far, my experience with them has been great! I have been communicating with my admission counselor and she has been extremely helpful and on top of everything. In addition, I recently met with the program director who clearly outlined the expectations for this program and was there to answer any questions I had. Overall, my experience has been wonderful.
