bad experience as scool, expensive. great time with students. but my guess is every private school is about the same now: get the money, grill the students to get passing scores, and get the students out. it boils down to what you want to get out the program. i can tell there were a few great inspiring professors, but most were about the gossip. NO ONE WILL FEED YOU THE KNOWLEDGE. prepare yourself , teach yourself, get a strong group of peers to get through it. quiz yourselves even when youre drinking,... Read More

Do not go to this school! It is true, the stories about this school. To begin with it is a hard program to start with already, if you're looking for a traditional study hour and lecture power points, GOOD LUCK nursing school is about self teaching because there isn't enough time to cover the materials during school hours, not to mention not enough time period! Be ready to learn how to self teach and that is with all nursing school. BUT SJVC is the worst program out there. What makes it the worst... Read More

SJVC has one of the better programs out there, it really does! No proctor pass test, 90% on med math exams, and you finish fast for a huge chunk of $$. That program is awesome. Now don't get me wrong what is good comes with bad, really bad. I was warned about this school, but I thought it was just the students before me who had a bad experience. I regret going to this school, I honestly believe that if the instructors remember when they were students and how hard it was for them then they should... Read More

Nursing school is not supposed to be easy. The test questions are different because they are NCLEX style questions. The instructions are great, the material we get exposed to is one of the best out there. The board exam passing rates are also good compared to FCC, it's high 80's. Again, the program is very hard and time consuming. Forgot about having fun for 20 months but it's absolutely worth it. So I would recommend the students to complain less and study hard. The help is ALWAYS available, the... Read More

RN program itself is Very challenging but I will highly recommend it. The school is great, the instructors are great, the learning atmosphere is great. Again, it is a hard program and students need to work hard and study intensely to do well and pass the classes/clinicals. The passing score is 75%. Good luck to everyone.

The Registered Nursing Program First off, if you are trying to get into the nursing program then there are a few things you should know. I am currently enrolled in the program, and these are a few things to consider, if seeking to apply. You need all of the necessary prerequisites completed before you can apply. You want at least a 3.0 GPA between your 3 biology classes such as Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology. You want to score well on your TEAS test. This test gets updated like every 2-3 years...
