RCC has a reputation for being difficult andNursing
RCC has a reputation for being difficult and for adequately preparing their students to be nurses, with that reputation though comes ego from many people who work there. They have the mindset that because something is always done this way, that is the way it should be. The nurses there are not educators they are nurses! They are very knowledgable in their fields but are not skilled at teaching. I've had 2 professors in the nursing program out of 10 who I can say actually taught. Although they verbally encourage questions they do not foster a safe open environment to ask them. The nursing professors are often very defensive even if you ask a question during your exam review time. I had a professor kick me out of the exam review claiming my time was up because she was so defensive about 1 question I asked! Instead of providing appropriate rationales to questions, the mindset is you're wrong because I said so. Anyone interested in the RCC nursing program should learn stress-relieving techniques because this program I think unnessciarily promotes a lot of unnecessary stress. On the other hand I think everyone can say the program is affordable, the clinical lab staff there is amazing. I feel very prepared to join the nursing profession. I also feel the entire program needs a cultural cleansing. There are a lot of old-schoolers with nasty personalities and giant egos. Most staff there have we vs them (professors vs students) mentality. My overall recommendation to people who ask me if they should go to the RCC school of nursing is to go for it. You should avoid needing assistance or clarification from staff members, avoid making any errors and find 2 -3 dependable students to form a support group with! If not you'll become unhappy very quickly!

Question
I love Rockland Community College.Quite BrightMath
I love Rockland Community College. As a returning student RCC gave me many opportunities to excel. The library staff, the tutoring center, the writing center, and the Science Center are extremely helpful. It is essential not to wait until the last minute, though. The financial aid office is very competent and friendly. RCC also offers many scholarships. The Math Department is the best. The professors are available, helpful and friendly. The Performing Arts Department is fabulous and professional.

Question
I am an adult student.Quite BrightCommunications
I am an adult student. First time attending college. The people (students/faculty) at this school were very accepting of me. As a Veteran, this is a Vet Friendly school. VA coordinator is top notch. Award winning CommArts professors. Dont come thinking youre in 13th Grade. Be an adult, you are responsible for you. Beware of the Cigarette Nazis. Good place to get your feet wet into college. Get your Associates or Certification and move onto a 4year college. Loved the people here, and I am anti-social.
