    Campus Safety

    official Brooklyn Health Network PD on campus and always easy to locate.

    Greek Life

    Not present

    Clubs and Activities

    Literally hundreds of interest groups

    Great for these types of students

    Self-driven, ambitious, those holding a bachelors in an unrelated field

    Bang for the buck

    New York State tuition. he whole program is roughly $13,000

    What to do for fun

    I wouldn't go out locally. the 2 and 5 trains are about 2 blocks away. its 15 minutes into Park Slope, about 40 minutes into Manhattan

    Food and Dining

    Sodexo runs the cafeteria which is shared by the school and the adjoining hospital. The hot lunches are good; the salad bar is always wiped out.

    Dorm Life

    I dont live there but a friend does. Dorms are spacious and right across the street from the main building.

    Academic Rigor

    Most professors lack it. You need to push yourself

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay on top of assignments and take initiative. Always question test grades.

    In three sentences

    It is a good campus in close proximity to valuable clinical settings. Nursing professors are not the best, so there is a lot of self-driven initiative necessary. The program is 5 months, so it is worth it.
