Program: BSN-PL

This school gives you a lot of BS to get you to enter the program. It is so inconsistent and goes through so many instructors which should tell you more than words can. We had some really good professors who left because of the way school is managed. It’s a shame because I was very excited at the beginning. While it is all online now in beginning it is advertised as being online and good for those who work but that’s BS. Some weeks we were on campus 3x and the amount of writing you do is ridiculous. There’s a couple of good professors but that’s it and every time they get a new one everything changes. I hate it and can’t wait to graduate. It is not what they claim it to be. Go to a community college.
