HACC's nursing program is awesome. It is a challenging program, but prepares you for real world nursing. After I graduated, they revamped the program to help make it more affordable and attainable for a working student. The professors are knowledgeable and take the time to get to know each student. Additionally, I spent some time doing adjunct work for HACC. They keep their alumni close and connected.
