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

"i chose the college that had an immediate entry available to me into the program. I also chose the college that was the closest to me."
"At that time this was the best decision because the program lasts months. And I need to complete so I can get a job as fast as I could."
"This was an accredited school that offered flexible times and a convenient location for me."
"I chose this college because its close to home and its an affordable option. I also found good academic ratings for this school on review sites."
"To become an LPN in Tennessee you have to attend class, no online degree is offered for LPN, this school was closest to my home. I made the right decision because I do not want to drive 50 miles to school every day."

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

"How small the actual college was and how unorganized it seemed most of the time. It seemed as though when i had a financial question i was transferred around several times within the departments."
"If I knew that instructors don't give lectures I could've supplement with other nursing program, such as Youtube and other program to self help."
"I was surprised at how well equipped the school was. Usually, people have the impression that technical schools like these would be smaller and may not even be that well equipped compared to community colleges and universities. But that was not a problem here."
"You can't learn nursing without being able to work with others as a team. Nursing involves working with other nurses around the clock in order to maintain healthy patients."
"The quality of instruction I received at the school I attended was excellent. The teachers are tough on you, but it is only so you will retain what they are teaching. The general public may think a vocational school is not very rigorous, but some college level classes I have taken were 98% easier than the vocational program I attended."

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

"i had 3 job offers when i graduated. I was already working at the local hospital as an registration tech in the er."
"Some issues came up that caused me not to be able find a job. I am a caregiver for a relative. I was looking for part time and flexible schedule but I couldn't find one that could fit my schedule. I apply online to the hospitals and nursing home."
"The job hunting experience was not that hard, especially with the resources available online. By searching career websites of nearby hospitals, clinics, and medical centers, I found an abundant amount of job openings I was able to apply to."
"I went and interviewed here locally. I have family that is also in the nursing industry so I had some guidance as to how to start."
"It was difficult to obtain work with no experience, I managed to get 2 part time jobs for the first year. This gave me a little experience, and I was hired at the company I am currently still employed by. I have been with the same family practice for 7 years now."
