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!

Virginia Highlands Community College is a great environment that offers many scholarships for those working to get their Associates Degree. My experience has been very pleasant especially considering the fact that these 2 years have not cost any money because of my work in the community that was noticed by the school. Many of the advisors are always glad to help students successfully schedule their classes, and eventually transfer. I firmly believe that everyone should attend VHCC for their first two years of college as it provides a great education, and may not cost anything for the student.
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.
