Eastern Suffolk BOCES - School of Practical Nursing Reviews
Loved all of the teachers there to death. They really do all they can to help you out and push you to succeed. They're the only reason I give this program 3 stars otherwise it would be 0. The administration is extremely unorganized in my opinion. A lot of times when something with the curriculum or just the everyday schedule/order of things would change the students would be the absolute last people to know about it. Even the teachers found themselves being uninformed as well. It seemed as though the whole student body came to an agreement that everything that the administration decided was ass backwards. If I could go back in time I would have told myself to just go straight for my RN. There's also a great deal of favoritism and although that obviously happens everywhere, when it's such a small graduating class it just seems very unfair when we are all working extremely hard to get through it and someone gets away with something that is unacceptable.
What enjoyed about BOCES was that the professors are very helpful and the experience I had going to externship similar to internship was great. I got to see many things in the hospital and decided what I wanted to do for my career.
I am very satisfied with my experience at Eastern Suffolk BOCES School of Practical Nursing. I learned very valuable nursing lessons during my 18 months there from very educated instructors with natural talents in teaching.
Expensive & not much financial aide is available.
N/A it's an adult learning center. There is none of that available.
Very diverse. You learn different things from your classmates, including different life experiences.
It's difficult at first, but doable. time management is key.
It's a full time program so you can't pick the teachers. Work load is heavy, but doable.
No lie, this is a hard program. You have to make the time for it otherwise it'll be really hard on you
The building is set up like a hospital environment. The teachers relate everything we learn to their real life experiences.
