It is really tooAverageNursing
It is really too bad that this is the only ADN program in Colorado Springs. Try to go to UCCS so that you might learn something about nursing, and learn less about backbiting.

Question
If you are an instate resident with aNot so bright
If you are an instate resident with a veteran status, stay away from this school. Not only is the faculty completely unprofessional and unhelpful they go out of their way to completely rob you. After repeatedly mishandling my paperwork to RECONFIRM that I was an instate student, they charged me out of state rate and now I owe over $4000 because no one in the admissions office can do their job correctly. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this nightmare "community college". Your better off without an education then enrolling here. For anyone reading these comments, please do not apply, you will only waste your time and money.

Question
I never went here because I went intoQuite BrightAutomotive Engineering
I never went here because I went into register for the Automotive program and found out there is a constant wait of 4-6 hours to speak to a career advisor. When I entered the VA office, I was met almost as if I was in basic training. Joy is the front desk person in that office and seemed very disgruntled. She barked orders and rolled her eyes when I asked her questions and yes,another 3+ hour wait. When joy told me the wait would be an additional 3 hours after my first 2 hour wait I told her I would rather go to a University with some clout. I mean lets face it, if the VA is paying, its just not worth a week of stress and waiting to get into a Community College that doesn't even have good ratings.Joy replied with, "you'll be paying way more than your GI bill covers and Veterans come here first because Veterans always need special assistance, and Veterans can't get into good four year Universities" etc. Basically it was a 20 minute factless argument with the intention to convey the message that the GI bill won't cover good schools and that veterans lack the mental capacity to attend other schools. Half of the people waiting got up and left with me. Good job Joy. You organization is not worth the GI bill.
