    8.0 /10

    I opted for this college because it offered a collaborative program that allowed me to attend school close to home and save money while still getting the same education I would have gotten if I had gone to University. I originally attended the college for a collaborative Kinesiology program but switched to the collaborative Nursing program and am very satisfied with my program switch.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is very relevant to today's current health topics and uses up to date resources and textbooks. Each class builds on previous year classes and allows for a deeper understating and application of knowledge and skill.
