Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2007

I attended Pierce College in Puyallup in conjunction with my high school experience through the Running Start program. I was able to earn college credit, while still attending high school (part time). As a result, I graduated high school with two years of college already under my belt (at a very minimal cost to my family). I am thankful for the Running Start program, and enjoyed the partnership between Pierce College and my high school. Pierce offered a variety of course offerings both during the day, in the evening, and online. I had some very memorable instructors who demonstrated expertise in the subjects they taught. This experience better aligned me for the next stages of my education and I am thankful for Pierce College/Running Start.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Pierce Nursing Program is great for students who want to get their RN quickly and on a limited budget. It can be difficult to get into, but is worth the effort if you need a community college level program. Some of the instructors are fantastic, and some of them are okay. Honestly, this program requires a lot of personal drive and the ability to be "self taught", as there just isn't enough time (and sometimes not a great enough instructor) to really teach you everything you need to know. I will say that this program can be frustrating, disorganized, and occasionally a bit of a headache. However, if you are intelligent enough to supplement with research when you need to, and "go-with-the-flow" enough to not let the downfalls drive you crazy, this program can be great. We have great clinical experiences, are done in a short six continuous quarters, and it costs less than 2 grand a quarter. As a single mom with not a lot of money for college, I have my entire tuition paid by financial aid (and then some for books and other expenses). The office can be slow at times, but it has gotten a lot better recently. I do think that this is the best ADN program in the area, and is certainly worth applying for if you are looking for something other than a university. Bonus: it has a direct transfer agreement with UW Tacoma if you want to finish your bachelors after graduating.
