The curriculum is engineered to include everything you need to be successful at passing the NCLEX exam the very first time. It is not an easy program but organized and fair. Competition for entry is fierce; but once in the program, one is destined to be successful with dedication and hard work.

my experience at Oakland University was generally a pleasant one. Its a quite campus, and its community are mostly friendly. It did offer a variety of online courses, and that was beneficial to me, because i had kids at the time, and going to campus was really hard. the professors were helpful and professional in most of my classes exempt for a couple of people, which i gad minor issues with over assignments, but gerally speaking they were good to work with,
