Reality Awakening – Like any other school you have a mixed batch of good and bad professors. I think if you are not serious about nursing school the workload would be difficult and this accelerated nursing program wouldn't be for someone who is unsure of what they want to do. There are not many special study options besides a a few tutoring days for major courses. Class registration process is a breeze because its a for profit, private school. The only issue is that its very difficult to change or switch classes because the registrar is biased and shows favoritism towards certain students.

Quality of Career Center – Sarai, the career center specialist, is wonderful. Though I haven't met with her in person yet, when I had questions she emailed me back right away. Her emails were very detailed and was willing to help and meet with me. She has sent many opportunities to volunteer as well and CNA positions.

The library is very small. We are only allowed to print 10 pages, and this is the only place we are able to print from. There should be actual textbooks we can borrow while we wait for ours to be shipped.

Nursing Program – My school has a great nursing program. It is the main reason why I decide to attend the school. Their program has no waiting list and really shows that they want you to be successful in completing the program.

Ok Resources – Most campus resources are avalible all the time the only thing lacking is there is only 1 copier and it is kind of a hassle. but many computers and many many printers a good library for such a small school and a great online library as well.

West Coast's Status – The School is quite small but effective in its learning environment. Once a student free access is allowed at anytime. All of the rooms are well maintained and have new equipment. Staff is helpful and friendly for the most part. While the Classes are not easy and they are very long the accelerated program allows for completion of an other wise 4 year program in 3 years. The gripes i have with the school involve the recent quitting or moving of teachers and staff. Since i have been there 5 teachers and staff members have moved or quit. Although this is unsettling it doesn't detract from the schools appeal. The parking is very close and is guarded so you feel safe. It is a very learning oriented place, the price is expensive but its a private school. the last problem would be with the internet connectivity, wireless internet is available but hardly ever works. All in ALl i give the school an A-

The libraries are very small and limited. With the amount of resources we should have more

The workload at the school is alot with not much help. They give us books and modules to learn from but I am a hands on learner so I would like to do work with my hands.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The financial aid office I feel is not very organized as they keep asking for the same documents that was given like 2 weeks ago.

I love how everyone is in the same exact program; so really get to bond and create friendships with your classmates since you are in the same exact program. Of course it is extremely demanding and strict

Since this is a private school, there are those that do come across as having mom and dad pay for everything. But just like life, you get to know them and that factor goes out the window. Mostly there is the Asian cultures that make up the student body on the OC campus.

My financial aid councilor has been there with me from the beginning. Every time I make an appointment it is with the same person, she remembers my name and all of the complications I have had in the past. I feel comfortable relaying my personal financial information to her without a doubt. She feels like a friend to me.

Computer Reliability – The computer network at my school is excellent. The library let you print out 10 pages per day. Their network reliability and speed are fast and reliable.

Academic Experience at West Coast University – The unique aspects of my program at West Coast University is that all the students that attend there are nursing majors. I like how all the students are nursing majors because we all have the same goal and common interest. The workload and curriculum of our school is challenging because our school want their students to be the best they can be when they become a Register Nurse.

Transfer Credits – The amount of transfer credits weren't satisfactory with what was announced in the informational meeting prior to applying. They went over classes generally and never specified that some classes needed to be within a year of the start of the core program. They only said one year and I assumed it was withing the the year prior to enrolling which created a huge inconvenience.

Online Course – Online courses are incredibly easy. All the ones I have completed require you to post ideas and post to other's ideas, which is a waste of time. Most people take online classes for an easy A and less time spent studying and in class.

My School's Uniqueness – I love that my school is an acceralted program. I am a returning student and getting my education completed sooner is a great benefit to me. I absolutely love nursing and knowing that I will be finished ealier so that I may start my career is a huge benefit. I also love that most people in my school are in the same major. Its nice to be with people who have the same passion and interests.

Overall West Coast University Is a Great School – The reason I consider West Coast University a really good school is because they consider people's needs. Like they have a student union which has several tables with microwaves, vending machines and free water. The class are small and courses are accelerated which I love the faster I get school done the better. It is a bit tough but life is tough. This school is expensive but if I had to choose schools all over again I would pick this school.

This School Is Expensive,Hard,And Worth It – Well this school is very very expensive. Especially for me and my single parent because its hard for me to pay. Its very fast paced because the program is accelerated which means you learn a lot in little time. STUDY STUDY STUDY..but after 3 years your done!
