I got as far as the CNA program and it was amazing! The clinical experience was enjoyable, I was sad when it ended. Great experienced instructors with mesmerizing stories to prepare you for the nursing field. I would really push anyone looking towards getting their CNA to do it through PPCC.
Pikes peak community college has some good and bad things about it. Some of the good things is all the diverse degrees they offer as well as the many helpful services they have such as learning centers and tutoring in most general subjects. They also have different campuses that you could attend depending on your location in the Springs. What they need to work on is their teachers and lesson plans. So many teachers that I have encountered don't have any enthusiasm in teaching anymore. They are not creative with the way they teach and some seem not to even care about their students or how well they do. All the curriculum's try to fit too much information in, in a little time frame and expect you to learn it with a deep understanding of the material. There are too many exams and not enough homework or class activities. Lectures are the basis of all the teachers lesson plans and most are dry and straight to the point or right out of the book. Also there is not enough parking.
The staff and students were amazing, they helped me when I was stuck on certain homework, papers that needed to be written and even provided tutoring for almost all subjects that Pikes Peak Community College provides! They even allow you to choose from in class campus to online classes to fit your busy schedules as well! I am glad to make the right choice by enrolling to Pikes Peak Community College.
