The school itself is extremely disorganized. Communication from the school to the students is horrible. Everything, except for the bill which is often incorrect, is sent to us late. They increased the tuition from 10,500 a semester to 11,500 semester and didn't notify us until a month before the tuition was due. The nursing program itself is pretty good, but many of the teachers are uncompassionate and not very understanding. Registration is still done in a paper format that has to be turned in. You have to wait over a month to find out if you got the classes you need. Much of the information is outdated and no longer applies. The dorm rooms do not have cable or internet hook-ups and the campus is located in the heart of downtown Oakland-not a good area. There have been several attacks and muggings around campus and in the garage. Bottom line…it's not worth the money (11,500 base/semester) and if I had it to do all over again, I would choose another school. I definitely don't reccommmend this school!
