Aquinas is another SCAM college! Any person canQuite BrightNursing
Aquinas is another SCAM college! Any person can be a student here, as long as they are either eligible for federal financial assistance, or can pay cash. either way the cost of earning an Associates degree is over $60,000.00!!! And, after you've taken all of the Catholic curriculum that's required, this is where they try and brainwash you into becoming a crazy person just like them, you're going to spend 4 years getting a 2 year degree. If you are one of the fortunate to get pushed through this corrupt system, which is designed to weed out black students, Hispanic students, Asian students, heterosexual Male students, and non-Catholics of all creeds and colors, you will only be able to work as a nurse in the southern states. Why? nothing Aquinas is teaching is Up-to-Date! And every instructor is an old-school southerner who still fighting the Civil War. When you run into a Catholic Sister you'll find they are still practicing the Inquisition, trying to find the heretics and destroy them. This is an extremely antiquated group of relics making money off the federal dollars students are eligible for. I only recommend this college if you fit the following profile: You are: 1. White 2. Catholic 3. Southern 4. Female. If you are anything else do not enroll at this school. If your profile falls outside of this four prong test, you WILL be FLUNKED as soon as the college has all the federal dollars they can suck out Uncle Sam, on your behalf!!! You've been warned.

Wonderful Nursing program! I am not Catholic, IQuite BrightNursing
Wonderful Nursing program! I am not Catholic, I do not "fit" any type of box that people say you have to fit into to go there. I was in my 30's, married, non-religious and was accepted/never questioned about my beliefs and never made to "convert" to theirs. I loved the Sisters! They were always there to give me advice (if asked for it) and encouraged all the students. Do they take BS off students? Nope. Who should. We are all suppose to be adults and we are all paying to go receive an education. Education is what they give you. YOU have to take from it what you are willing to take. If you want to skate by, make EXCUSES about why you failed then find another college because this is why you will NEVER succeed on your own. We started with about 60 students in our nursing program and I believe around 40 graduated. I had a job offer before I graduated from a large hospital in the Nashville area. They know if you graduate from Aquinas then you have a good solid foundation in Nursing. I would recommend this college to anyone.

I'm not one to write reviews unless itQuite BrightNursing
I'm not one to write reviews unless it made a very good or very bad impression on me and my life. I went to this school because for some reason, it has a good reputation as a good nursing program in Nashville. Maybe it was at one point years ago, but it is not anymore. Do not be fooled. The faculty is despicable. They are out to make you fail. You may know the content, and well but they try to stump you and weed out weaklings... even if you are not. During clinicals, one instructor even slapped the hand of a student... in front of a patient! How unprofessional is that? Another thing is that students were told not to come to the professors with questions. They must first look it up themselves, then ask another student, and only after can you ask a question. It is ridiculous how much money you spend at this school to get a subpar education. There are better schools in Nashville that cost less and surely, you would get treated better than you do at this school. Something fishy is going on if at the end of the semester, the large majority of the class that hasn't already dropped out is barely hanging on by a 77.5. The worst part is that students know the content.... they study all day and sometimes most of the night only to be knocked in the head by these terrible instructors. They have no heart for teaching and should not work there. Nursing itself is hard but the faculty here make it impossible to get a degree.
