The ASN program needs a lot of work. I'd suggest students enroll into the 3 year or 4 year BSN program as it is structured differently. The ASN program is accelerated and majority of the students fail. These students who are failing are passionate dedicated students which is heart breaking to see that their knowledge excels out on the clinical floor, case studies, and their ability to connect the dots when questioned from instructors but exam averages drop them tremendously. The ASN program does not provide a pharmacology course but the BSN does. This is essential knowledge as part of the curriculum and as a nurse, regardless if the program is accelerated, there should be an in-depth pharmacology course or section. I'd say only attend this school if you're employed by the Lancaster General Health system and make sure you pass. Otherwise, go to a community college and transfer to a different college that is not this school.

The 3 year BSN is phenomenal. Well organized, amazing professors, and so many opportunities. This school as a whole cares about their students. They work hard to accommodate all types of students and meet the needs of each individual. The campus is beautiful. The clinical setting on campus is state of the art. The best part is on acceptance all students are guaranteed clinical placement!! If you're interested in health sciences especially nursing, this is the place to be. I am able to work while pursing an accelerated degree, get it paid for, and do well. Love, love, love PA College of Health Sciences.
It was a beautiful school, but severely lacked teacher and student communication. I attended an open house before I started my program and they said I could do my clinical time wherever as long as I have right paperwork filled out. I joined and started and they said no now I have to use LGH and Lancaster EMS only. I can’t make my own schedule, I been trying to contact both teachers for help. If you don’t complete clinical time you fail the program. I work full time and drive an hour away to come here. I’m just disappointed with the lack of help and communication with this place. I’m wasting my time and money here. 🤬
