    6.7 /10

    It was a good program and small class size. I liked how it was close to me and offered a good transition between high school and university which is where I will be for my last 2 years of my program.

    Course Curriculum :

    It is very strict, which I understand why as it important that the nurses that are produced are top-notch. I sometimes wish that things were more spaced out. so that I can catch a little break and get some time for myself.
