At first, I was hesitant to come into an accelerated course. I wasn't sure it was right for me. Meeting the staff here definitely helped calm any doubts I had. Going through the course was made easier by having the staff members who try to help when they can and even giving me the motivation i needed by knowing that they cared. This school is a great start into a good career. Thank you CCNN for giving me my start.
