PCC is a solidly conservative institution.History/Histories (art history/etc.)
PCC is a solidly conservative institution. The campus is located about a 20 minute drive from gorgeous Pensacola Beach. The faculty was always helpful and accommodating during my time at the college. The residence halls and on-campus dining options are excellent, in my view. The student will have the opportunity to learn and grow in a positive Christian environment. Understanding that this environment is not what every student is looking for, I can't recommend PCC enough to Christian students that are concerned with their spiritual, social, and professional future. It?s a fantastic place and I?ll always be thankful that I?m an alumnus of Pensacola Christian College.

I cannot honestly recommend Pensacola Christian College toQuite BrightOther
I cannot honestly recommend Pensacola Christian College to anyone. I do not find the course work challenging and the general education classes such as "College Algebra 1," "College Algebra 2," "History of Civilization 1&2," "American Literature," "Biological Science," are high school level at best. And the College Algebra 1 is more like middle-school level math.

Also, if you plan on attending PCC, I hope you enjoy deep cleaning and attending a lot of church services. I don't mind the daily room jobs like cleaning the toilet, taking out the trash, and cleaning the sinks. However, their standards for cleaning the shower is ridiculous. They literally expect the shower to be 100% dry, no mold, no powdery residue from cleaning chemicals, and it must "squeak" when you rub your finger against the tile. It takes forever to clean the showers to that level.

And the thing that bothers me the most about Pensacola is that you do not have the freedom to choose to go to a different church. You are forced to go to their church services on Sunday. And chapel is a required daily activity as well. I highly advise not going to this college if you are a Christian of a denomination other than Conservative Baptist. Pensacola is a bad experience overall. It has poor academics, excessive rules, and excessive control over your personal/spiritual life.

This nursing program is very outdated.AverageNursing
This nursing program is very outdated. Many of the school projects are just busy work and the school tends to favor paper projects as opposed to computer projects. The faculty is mostly recent grads and several very old professors and not many of them have any actual bedside nursing experience. The clinicals are very awkward with an instructor literally standing over you whenever you provide any patient care such as passing meds and starting IVs. The faculty micromanages the entire clinical time and when I graduated in 2015 we were still doing handwritten assessment notes on our patients. A huge emphasis is put on "critical errors" which you can earn from clinicals for things that the faculty deemed horrible mistakes that you made. These errors ranged from not foaming in and out to giving meds more than 30 minutes late to writing your clinical note after 10am. If you recieve more than 5 or 6 critical errors in a semester then you failed the class even if you were getting an A in the actual class. Finally the culture of PCC is grossly opposed to learning. For example, multiple times the instructors would tell us that this college is better than the other colleges in Pensacola because "we are a Christian college." Most of the emphasis was placed on how we looked to everyone else rather than updating our academics or nursing labs. Instead of providing educational experiences in the hospital we were given multiple clinical days in the nursing lab where we learned and practiced inserting NG tubes on old diparwipe boxes decorated to look like a face. During one of the finals senior year the teacher Mrs. Yoder wrote up half the class for skirts shorter than the knee but never had the integrity to say anything to us directly. My experience at PCC is that of subpar education, poor clinical experiences, and very poor preparation for the NCLEX and real nursing.
