Our program here is very fast paced, no one ever said nursing school was easy though. The workload is enormous, but we are learning a lot. The curriculum is good too, but it is new so I think some of the professors are not very accustomed to this new one. The facilities are a little outdated, but in 2017 they are breaking ground on a brand new nursing building with new interactions and new clinical settings. There are a lot of clinics and hospitals surrounding the area, so job opportunities are not slim.
Review New Mexico Junior College
NMJC is a good school, it has many programs that are worth the money. I am currently enrolled in then nursing program, and although it's hard, the educators really try everything to help you. We have a good welding program, auto-mechanic program, and in 2015 we were awarded the best nursing program in all fifty states. I would choose this school again and again to get my nursing degree. Affordable classes and staff that really cares about you.
I have only taken a few online classes, and they do differ greatly. I think the courses and educators themselves are great, I just don't have enough discipline to keep myself accountable for online.
