    Interesting work environment for nurses

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPays well for nursing instructors, job is relatively easy compared to working I. A hospital. Everyone is very nice, good environment and very efficient for learning.

    ConsEveryone does not do what they say they are going to do. Management is unreliable. Instructors are not reliable sources for help.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stand your behind your instructors!

    Politically charged environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFellow employees a joy to work with

    ConsAdministration uses "downsizing" (firing you!) as a way to fund new programs, cover themselves when they mess up, pump up financial numbers. No one is safe from their ax. If you work there now, watch your back. Be especially careful if you have been promoted ... it makes their numbers look good just before you are fired. No one will help you because they will be fired for speaking up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. No one is listening now, no one ever did.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to start your career. You will lean a lot about what does and what does not work in a managment structure.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsGood leadership structure, but this often changes. They are most successful when the admissions are up.

    ConsLots of layoffs, watch your back. Best way they fund new programs is to lay off in other areas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave better long term goals that can weather economic changes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good for experience, limited room for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosyour coworkers will be great. everyone is friendly and welcoming, and you do directly assist students and have an impact.

    Conssalaries are a little on the low side. you will be in an industry that has constantly changing regulations and audits.

    Advice to Senior Managementcommunicate the changes that happen better to employees. allow for room for growth and maybe more trainings applicable to the position.

    Extremely fulfilling, enriching, and elightening

    Student Worker (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you're a student, it's a perfect place to earn extra cash without having to commute too far or spend extra money on gas.

    ConsYou're limited to the number of hours you can work since you are a student, so it's very little income you're earning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate opportunities for students to prosper and advance their career with the school in regards to promotions, job recommendations, or full-time positions upon graduation

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
