The nursing instructors are wonderful. Registering for classes in very easy through the online format. The ability to take classes online & in person make it so easy to fit into a busy person's schedule. Tuition is very affordable & they will help you set up a payment plan that works for you. The campus is moderate sized and easy to get it. It's also easy to find a parking spot close to the building your class is in. The new student center is fantastic. The library has numerous computers and quiet areas for students to use. The cafeteria offers numerous options at reasonable prices. The food is very delicious. I would recommend this college to everyone. It's a great place to get your start on your degree.
i have had nothing but positive experiences at IWCC. I have been going here part time for 4 years and now a full time nursing student. I have positive teachers in the science department,and outstanding teachers in the nursing department. The only down side is the admissions/financial aid/ office staff over see such a large amount of students, its easy to get lost in the shuffle if as a student i don't actively keep involved with what is going on in the background of my degree program.
