Kishwaukee College Reviews
Very easy to get started, extremely helpful staff! Granted, it is a local community college, so you won't get everything you would at a four year university, but the nursing program is phenomenal!
Kish is the best! My classes have been great. My instructors take the time to teach until you understand. I have never had a 4.0 in high school and I was able to do it here at Kish. I’ve also had the opportunity to play on the basketball team! I have made great friends and have strenghtened my game.
Kishwaukee is an excellent school for students looking to complete their general education, transfer, become a teacher, or become a nurse. It's affordable and cheaper than it's neighbor NIU for the same classes. There are some excellent teachers. Just make sure you do your research on your professor's teaching style and agenda before you take a class.
