I loved my experience in the nursing program at Virginia Highlands Community College. Although the program was difficult, my professors were extremely helpful and made sure that I had all the materials I needed to succeed. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that is interested in beginning their education or to those looking to change their career path!

My experience at VHCC has been excellent! All of my professors have been wonderful to work with. I love the online class offerings as I am able to fit them into my work schedule. I would like to see the online classes be offered as a self-paced, 10-week or semester listing. This would help if a class was finished quicker you could go on to the next class without having to wait for the next semester to start.
I am very happy thus far with my experience at Virginia Highlands Community College. All of my professors are extremely helpful, caring, and understanding. Everyone goes above and beyond to make me feel like my education is not only enjoyable, but important. I would recommend VHCC to anyone looking for a great community college experience!
