As a Seventh-Day school,it's run by poltics.Quite Bright
As a Seventh-Day school,it's run by poltics.Staff for the most part is great,problem is no one really ever knows whats going on. Department Chairs are rude, and will weed you out the fastest chance they get. The are too critical when it comes to programs and very selective. They admit on average 25 students, rad,sono,nuc med and nursing 80 every enrollment term but trust me most WONT graduate. The school will suck your money dry,and leave you hanging. You as a student have NO,i REPEAT NO VOCIE at this school. The College President is personally friends with many of the SDA faculty and they all have each others back no matter what the situation is. NEVER use the word change because they will come down on you, Change is not welcome here, Your rights are none. If you come here be a drone,don't voice you thoughts or oppions you'll be put on whats known as a SDA black list of problem students. The VP's which there are a couple let the title go to thier head. The Academic dean does not care about you his sole job is to back up what his faculty says even if your proven right,he rules against you,and there is no appeal process. Dorm life,the dean is a nice person but ZERO tolerence for anything i mean anything he will leave you homeless and won't think twice,and when you talk to Admistration about it they support him. Overall i would never ever want to come here if i knew what i know now. It's not about what you know here its about who you know. just bad bad bad place to go

WARNING THIS IS NOT FLORIDA HOSPITAL AFFILIATED! This college is on location but a separate entity. It is out for one thing MONEY! They are over priced! They will tell you what you want to hear, they will force their Seventh Day Advent Faith on you and slam it down your throat. Employers do not respect this school because the teachers are usually teachers that got pushed out of a job and then out of community college programs. They are trying to start classes in Denver online and are experimenting with their students in the process. STAY AWAY! BAD SCHOOL. TAKE MY WARNING. NO! HEED MY WARNING. YOU WILL WASTE YOUR TIME HERE! Go to a community college program and then go to a University. Do not be fooled by this place. I was.

FHCHS is a very small church type school.AverageNursing
FHCHS is a very small church type school. Our motto is Nurture, Excellence, Spirituality, and (Something else). Our website is very attractive, wrapped very nicely and over the phone our staff appear to be friendly.

A hand full of faculty and staff are very nice, strive to do as much as they can to assist... but not many of them are willing to help. Most faculty are... they're just not there most of the time.

I have been there for 3 years, the only reason I stayed was because it's paid for, my friends are there for me. The school, the System itself... tends to be unfriendly. There are so much politics going on, everyone works in the school strives to do less... in layman term we would call them lazy. Staff are always sitting around having coffee, talking in a circle, the phone rings a dozen times and the librarian (most likely the student workers) would turn the ring down and kept talking on their cell phone; faculty go out at lunch around 1130 and come back around 230PM, that's very usual. Some professor would hand us assignment in the beginning of the class for us to complete it for next class period, then they say they cannot stay because they're working on their PhDs or some post-graduate study so they can't stay for long. Lectures are apparantly not prepared. I have seen some powerpoint notes were merely Outlined for students to fill in most of the empty space (which can be interpreted wishing student's effort to write their own notes down... but they do not look professional at all)... I hate to complain but they do seem... "Not there" for us.

Did I say about the Library? They hire few freshmen to sit at the desk to assist, which was a good intention, but they arent' well trained! those student workers does not even know how to look up a book! They go right back to their real librarian and she would show me very nicely.

In the library, printing is a real problem. They have this printing system, where when someone prints from one of the 8 computers available, you must go through the student working at the desk to request for a print out; and most of the time they appear to be busy conversing about some very important boyfriend/girlfriend problem, and they would tell you to wait... I do understand that when people are not well trained they don't do the job well, but it seems that the kind of attitude I perceive was due to the lack of education from their own family.

Our school just neds to be organized a little bit.Voortdurend
