Trident Technical College Reviews

The nursing program I attend at my school is fast paced. Each class is only 7 weeks long which is one of my favorite and least favorite things about it. While the short deadlines may at times seem daunting, the slight anxiety motivates me and helps me stay on track with my studies. The program offered at my school stresses professionalism to a greater degree than other nursing schools in the community. Students that attend my school have a higher rapport with the community hospitals and are looked on favorably when they are job searching after graduating. Attending this school is a decision I would make again and again. I love that I have had clinical experience beginning in my first semester at school. I feel prepared to be a nurse already!
Review Your College
The application was so easy to fill out! It was also very detailed. Their website is really easy to use and the staff and teachers at TTC are unbelievably kind and willing to help! From what I've heard from everyone around me that also goes to this school, their teaching methods are absolutely perfect. I'm going to major in computer programming so it was absolutely imperative to me to find a college where I would actually learn, absorb, and remember every little thing that was taught and not just memorizing, taking the test, then forgetting. Everyone I know that goes there says that their coursework is unforgettable and will stick with me my whole life. I personally feel that I could not have chosen a better college to get my associates than Trident Tech!
My specific major is computer programming. I start in Fall 2016. However, I told my online advisor on the phone that I want an internship while I'm in school and she gave me a list of great places and companies in my area to look for internships dealing with computer technology! I was so thankful, how absolutely kind and thoughtful of her.
