My experience with Johnston Community College was overall great! The staff are friendly and the students there are very welcoming. The academic advisers, Student Government Association members, and the financial aid office were all big helps to me receiving my degree.

The school is a community college that has always upheld a great reputation for preparation for real life allied health professions. My personal experience with college has varied with starting with a two year transfer program that prepared me for a university. I soon felt the track I was on was not exactly what I wanted in a career and wanted to attain a degree in social work however found a true calling to patient care in a hands on profession. Nursing was an interest however to be a part of a team that researched the anatomy was more my desire. I currently work in a nursing career however I want to be on the beginning of a patients care and felt radiography would be exactly where I want to be. I have gained more confidence and desire in the past year providing patient care to a vulnerable population and I know I’ve made a positive impact on the lives of the elderly. For this reason I hope to gain more experience in a growing field.
It's extremely hit or miss with your teachers; some will really try to motivate you, others let blatant cheating run through their classes. I had some wonderful English teachers, but some not so great Spanish teachers. The student body usually isn't very energetic/excited; most people are here as a backup option. The adults in the classes are usually very sweet.
