"This is review is based soley on attending the Mesquite, TX location. This is plenty wrong with this school and not exactly sure where to start. The main problem is that there are teachers who are not knowledgeable in the subject that they are teaching. Just because you are a nurse doesn't mean that you have teaching skills. Our med surg teacher is a first time teacher and because of that our grades suffered. Once the Dean was notified of how this same teacher talked to us, the unfair punishments she gave out, and the horrible test that she gave, the dean did nothing about it. 80% of the students are failing in the 3rd and 4th semesters there. The dean is saying that students aren't studying. If this amount of students are failing then something is wrong with the school. The only thing the students can do is repeat the same semester over and pay another $10,000 and hope they pass or they will be kicked out of the school. Beware because this location is currently under review by the state because of very low NCLEX pass rates. Keep your stress low and money in your pockets. Just try to get into a public college so you don't have to deal with these private schools."

"Horrible mistake attending this school! Graduating nursing student passing rates for NCLEX are extremely poor. Instructors are really clinical nurses that have little experience in teaching academically. The students cannot comprehend the material because the instructors are learning the material themselves. Majority of the students are barely passing due to poor teaching and have to self-teach one another. The dean seems to not have a control over the program and not even care that the student is struggling greatly, low morale, and poor class averages. Students are going to tutoring, group studies, and using outside sources to try to maintain to no avail. As a nursing student, I would never recommend anyone to join a program of this poor caliber. It's too expensive and not enough student support. The way the nursing program courses are designed clearly wasn't thought out and not designed with the student best interests at heart. This program can easily turn into a money pit! Statistically wise I don't see this program excelling are lasting too much longer. The grace period the Texas Board of Nursing issued to get scores above 80% is running out of time. This program has NEVER been over or even close to the 80% that is required to deemed an established RN program."

"Do not go here, I thought when I first signed up and seen all the bad reviews that it was simply from lazy students that were unable to pass the course, but the horror stories are true. The staff is incompetent, rude and demeaning. I am a smart, focused, hard working student and have never been put in such a bad situation. I completed the program by the grace of god, but only half of the students that started the program were able to complete it. Just ask any current student how they feel about the program and you can get an idea of what you will be getting yourself into. The staff can not even stand it, teachers were continuously quitting and it was a very unstable environment. Consider yourself warned."
