DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL

Dec 28 2012Nursing
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. Some instructor are great. But there is poor leadership. Between trimesters instructors assign homework to classes that have not started yet. Student do not have the books or materials to do the work and the instructors set their email to out of office. The response says they will not get emails until classes start again. Students are expected to do the work over the break with no materials or help from the instructors. Test can include up to 12 chapters. This would not be bad but the instructor holds one or two classes and tells you to read the rest on your own.

Please do not waste your time, money, or

Apr 04 2014Nursing
Please do not waste your time, money, or energy with this school. You will not learn anything unless you study and try to learn the material on your own from youtube or other sources. Everything is design to fail the students so they can make you take the classes again (More money!). You will not get help from instructors. No guidance and instructions how to accomplish assignments. They test you on chapters that have never been covered (You should know cause it is your responsibility to cover about 12-15 chapters. All you have is a short power point lecture. Instructors lie during check offs. Clinicals are a joke. Nobody show you what to do and will not answer questions. They keep you so busy with assignments that you won't have time to study for exams. Not that matters cause questions are not covered in class anyway. After spending about $17,000.00 I had to withdraw without a degree. I came to this school with a 3.97 GPA and left with 3.0 GPA. Please do your research before register at this school.

BCHS has several problems

Aug 07 2012Nursing
BCHS has several problems. Its small size does not allow students to change majors without withdrawing and reapplying. Additionally it has very few majors. If you fail twice you are automatic disenrolled from the school (that is two failures throughout the entire time you are in school ex. If you fail health assement, pass the second time you take it and later fail Adult Health 2 you are no longer in school ), and the school does whatever it can to prevent you from entering a similar program at other colleges. The school does not advocate for its students. Teachers are heard stating that they intentionally made a test to fail students. When this is brought to the attention of facility the administration will do an internal review and always side with instructors. Instructors will have in access of 10 grievances filed against them in one term and the instructor retains their position. The school has recently restructured there program and did not organize it well. As a result so many students failed they had to reopen a new section to place all the students who have failed. Most instructors will tell you to call them at home if you have problems. Unfortunately, they are over shadowed by instructors that get angry if you ask questions and seek help. The school is owned by a hospital but it has problem stocking equipment in the skills lab. The library is closes at 6pm 3 days a week and closes periodically for school events. When this happens students do not have access to computers or printers. The main campus building closes for non residents at 10:30 pm the only building student have access to after this time is the annex; which is not equipped with computers or a printer needed for paper work. Student recreation is almost unheard of. There were more opportunities for trips and events when I attended a community college. In short this is a small school with limited resources. There are several quality instructors however since they will not police the poor instructors the school has a poor graduation rate, approximately 70% of students who start a BCHS do not graduate. If you choose to go here realize you may only leave here with student loans.
