If I could turn back the clock, IBright
If I could turn back the clock, I would've never attended CC. I came here to transfer into a 4 year uni and save some money but at this point, I would've paid the 30k just to avoid it. CC has horrible inconsistency when speaking with staff of any kind. Response time is sort of a trend here in a negative way. Professors are notoriously slow at responding if at all. The LRC is full of students who are ill informed on their subjects. I?ve gone to the tutoring services only to end up teaching my tutor how to do the material. There is absolutely zero social life on this campus. Students look down both ways while walking to classes to avoid any kind of communication. I honestly felt that high school was better in certain ways. I wouldn't recommend this college at all and I?m excited to transfer

Please read this first! This school has notQuite BrightNursing
Please read this first! This school has not had a good nclex pass rate for the last few years but is actually much worse than you think. The washout rate is more than 50% so the actual % of students who start the program who don't pass the nclex 2 years later is actually closer to 37% not the above 75% they claim. This would be bad enough if the actual program itself was nice but it isn't. The reality is that they are trying to run the program as cheaply as they can meaning less lab and lecture time than other programs by a big margin. This is crippling to out learning which explains the failure rate. So even if this program is your cheapest option as it was for me please spend the money and go somewhere better.

Do not go to this school.Quite BrightNursing
Do not go to this school. It is a nightmare. I have been abused by professors and the college as a whole. I have been threatened with being failed out a course if I did not perform degrading personal tasks for a professor. I talked to another professor that I trusted about reporting this professor and I was told that they were too "well connected" and that I would just have to bear it until I graduate. I have talked to students in other programs and they are not like this at all. AACC is so much better and nicer. I know this place is cheap but it is cheap for a reason it is terrible at teaching you to be a nurse. The attrition rate for this program is unreal. I am the only person to pass last semester out of 8 people. This is the NORM. Pleas please please listen to me and go to a better program.
