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!
Review Virginia Highlands Community College
I love the convenience of online classes. During my time at Highlands, I have taken over 5 online courses and am very pleased with my experiences. All of my professors responded to my questions in a timely manner and made sure that the course was easy to navigate. I would recommend online courses to anyone!
Students that graduate from the VATNP at Virginia Highlands can continue their education at another local University, King University. Students will be able to complete online courses to receive their Bachelor's degree in nursing. The application process is easy and students are able to continue their education within a few months of graduation.
