Why did people choose their school for this program?Why did people choose their school for this program?

"It was convenient because I could still work go to school and pursue my dream career."
"Amarillo Community College has a great reputation in the State of Texas in regards to their nursing program. They are very hands on and the instructions are provided by qualify teachers. Additionally, I recieved a small scholarship to help with tuition. Regardless of that incentive, I would have picked this College again if given a choice."
"This college gave me the best opportunity to succeed. I wouldn't change my decision at all."
"I chose Mid-State Technical College for my LPN degree because I enjoyed the intimate classroom environment with a mix of on-line courses and hands on learning experiences. I obtained a degree from a University before I started at the technical college and I felt lost in the large classroom sizes with very little personal attention from the professors."

What surprised people about the school they chose?What surprised people about the school they chose?

"The hours of study and the time allocated to hand in major home work especially towards the end of the program"
"I was surprised at the level of practical practice we engaged in at the college. We did not just learned about the concepts. Our professors made sure we were comfortable and proficient in carrying out our tasks. It was nice to be in an encouraging enviroment. Sometimes a few students would be nervious with a particular situation, and because our mentors were so understanding, no one ever felt alienated or embarrassed to voice their concern."
"The college was great in the atmosphere and people. The college was very accessible and all of my teachers went up and beyond."
"I was surprised at the amount of individualized attention the professors gave each student. The experience was much more intimate and hands on than I expected or experienced before at a larger University. I was also surprised at the quality of the coursework and how it really challenged me as a student to do my best."

How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"I had people recommending me to different agencies, so job hunting was not a problem at all"
"It was not difficult at all for me to find a job. We did clinicals at the local hospitals and I had a few friends who worked there that helped me expand my connections. My mentors and career center was invaluable in helping me locate a decent job."
"The process in getting a job was a long one because it took me a while to actually receive my license. I was still working as a medical assistant at the time but the waiting is what really stood out for me."
"The only problem I had was that 2 months after completing my program I moved to a different city 3 hours away. I had to build a repore with a whole new community instead of being able to network with the people I already knew and had worked with during clinicals."
