I am in the health care administration program there, loved it until my third year. Tomomi horning teaches the most of the end classes, she is the worst teacher I have ever come across. Met with the dean about it several times. They care more about their professors and praising them then to actually listen to complaints. I am transferring. Loved this program until her and her classes!
Review Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences
For the most part the instructors are high-quality and very knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching. There are ample opportunities for learning and the new center for excellence in practice has an amazing simulation set-up. Some of the precepting nurses at the clinical sites are less than desirable and overall very rude. The clinical sites themselves are good and provide many situations for learning for students that have no previous nursing experience. The clinical instructors are generally good and stick to the rubrics of what is expected. The clinical prep work the day before is grueling and very time consuming, about six to eight hours worth of prep work.
The tuition is extremely expensive for an Associate level education. At $560 a credit, I could be taking graduate level courses. In addition, I feel that I could be getting the same quality education at a community college that would afford the same learning and educational opportunities.
The new renovation of the school is exactly what it needed. I still wish they would have been better with providing living for the students, hopefully that is something that will be available in the future. The new facility is a great learning environment, with many places to study and practice nursing skills. The program is rigorous, but they have many ways students can seek help if they are struggling. This school pushed me academically and I feel it was well worth it.
