I find the staff to be very personable, one of the great things about a small private institution is you're not just a number. The school has high grading standards. Passing is 80% or above. No exceptions. But it's doable and I love the challenge. Keeps me young ;-). I do feel the school works well for second career students. Older students and I still find time for my family and friends when needed. This is a hospital based program, so don't expect beautiful grounds, also don't expect a huge campus social life. People come to school and go to work or home.. But u make wonderful friends in lecture and clinical. The clinical experience for the day students seems to get more experience, which is wonderful and helps with understanding topics. Overall I love the school and am excited to continue.

Most of the staff are rude not helpful and a couple of the teachers are very discouraging and tell students that they will not pass especially students with full times jobs. The school is very expensive and with all the money being paid they do not have any resources available for the students especially evening students. i have to say that there are alot of wonderful teachers and staff members that are helpful but the bad experiences overshadow the good ones. i decideed to go to this school bc it was convenient but i wish i would have gone else where. They change their policies constantly and its hard to keep up with these changes. Please dont go here. Its not worth the money.

Let it be your very last resort. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worse enemy. The communication is horrible, the professors teach straight from the power point, and you can study until you are blue in the face and still fail. The answer the professor gave you in the class can be a totally different answer on the test and one that you did not learn. You have absolutely no where to go for help many of the professors are unapproachable. They give the impression that they want you to fail. They are very racist at that school, and the higher ups have been found laughing at students grades. You are basically teaching yourself and the tests are very tricky. You could have been a 4.0 student in college but when you come to cochran that equals to a c if you're lucky. I tell you don't even waste your time filling out an application for this school because those who have made it Just made it. Cuz ur GPA will be shot when you leave!!!!!! Run!

The same went for my seond semester, although more and more I was seeing that the school did nothing to anable the students success yet they were eager to get the money for tuition. My third semester has been horrible. The instructors are like a group of sorority sister who dont want you to join their nursing group. They dont want to answer your questions, they refuse to go over test with you in a proper manor, they owe students points on exams and then never calculate them into their averages. Some of the instructors are more worried about getting home instead of teaching a detailed lecture. If you join the night program, be ready to have your job threatened to be taken away as the school schedules mandatory classes and clinicals during the day forcing you to take over 6 days off in 3 months. I want this school to be reviewed by NYSNA so they can see who they have representing nursing. I am a top student who is now in the edge of failing because of test questions that are being "reviewed" or changed, instructors that want you to drop their course after 2 weeks in their class, and a dean who moves on to better things, probably becuase she didnt want to be involved with the way Cochran treats their students who are paying good mney for a horrible education. The ONLY thing that is good about this school are the clinicals. You get your experience there.

Tue, 15 Nov 2011 06:20:55 GMT StudentsReview 2741-82903 2741-82903 2741 30 Nursing Male Undergraduate Class 2000 Negative This schools NCLEX passing rate is in the 60's which is pretty low considering the class size is very small. There's no tutoring offered. The instructors get offended when you question them and feel that you are attacking them. They promote dropping a class rather then help a student move forward. They rush through lecture and read strict from the PP. There are some instructors that truly care about you and will go out their way to make sure you learn the material. The lab and library computers are bot up to par. The library is always loud. There is really no place to study quietly without any interruptions. Then they wonder why almost all there students fail the Nclex or fail out the program. It's more about economics in this school. Don't waste your time till they figure something out to help the students. GOODLUCK. Tue, 15 Nov 2011 06:20:55 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/NY/CSON_comments.html
