Worst professors and they do not resolve the issue of professors improperly grade a student, while the blackboard grading is above passing and the student is given a failing grade in wiser ruining their lives along with their GPA as if schooling is not hard enough. I wouldn't waste your time on this school.

Do not enroll in this program. They are unable to contract with your clinical location even when it is a 100% guarantee. You waste time and money and there are clueless in streamlining the process or communicating with you or clinical sites. I regret the semester I wasted with them, if you are out of state then save yourself the headache.
