Overall Rating:

I would not suggest this school to anyone. It would be better to go to another nursing program. It's to expensive plus the people in the loan department TFG is not willing to work with you. Plus with the greenlight program is no good. I ended up paying out of pocket for my nursing exam and passed on the first try.
