Most of the students here work full time, or are raising children. They are very sociable how ever and seem to be friendly. In the nursing program we dont associate or see many of the other students.

Have Never Attended an Online Program – I am a hands on person. I want to be educated by a live person
Lpn at Western Area – I like my school. The teachers are very nice and thorough, they want you to learn. there isnt very many activities here but they do have a on site child care center which is great for me. Over all i have had nothing but a good experience.
