It is a very expensive, small local college. If you are a returning adult student or a young adult only interested in getting a very high quality education, then this is the school for you. The classes are very small which allows the very qualified professors to focus on the educational needs of their students. The classes are as flexible as can be considering the size of the school and the resulting number of classes. Tuition is very high, but ebooks, tutoring, and printing is all part of tuition.
The class sizes and professors are guaranteed to make the student that wants to learn all that they can successful in that achievement. This is not the school for young, fresh from high school students looking for their school to have social groups and activities. Only serious academics looking to achieve a quality, accelerated degree need apply. It is too expensive to mess around, requiring repeating courses.
The nursing program, and the students doing their clinicals in local facilities, are well respected for the quality of the nursing program. Students graduating with their BSN are offered jobs often from their externship locations.
