    Campus Safety

    It is extremely safe and is located right next door to the county school board office, in a smaller rural town where everybody knows everybody!

    Clubs and Activities

    none

    Great for these types of students

    Great if you require a smaller class size and a more individualized approach and that don't want to take too long to get an education.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    none

    Bang for the buck

    I don't know about now, but 27 years ago my program was only $600 and books an additional $200, well worth it. I have to pay more than that now just for a refresher course!

    Food and Dining

    They have an absolutely fantastic cafeteria, as there is also a culinary program on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    It is pretty challenging, as it is a full time program. When I went it was 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week, and you had to keep a B average to stay in the program. My instructor kept on top of us all. We sarted with 13 students and 9 graduated, but 2 of those students got perfect scores on their nursing boards, so it was worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    The course I took (in 1985), the Licensed Practical Nursing program, did require a pre-admission exam and an in person interview, so be prepared. You will be going up against a lot of other prospective students and only 13 students per session where accepted and there are only 2 sessions per year.

    In three sentences

    This was an absolutely fabulous school. The class sizes are small, so you can get a very individualized educational experience. The instructors are top of the line and many students get perfect scores on state exams.
