The professors at CCC are dynamic and helpful. The president, President Amber, is amazing! She opens her home up to students for Halloween parties and board and club meetings. She listens. She also spear-headed "The Faces of Cedar Crest College" which is a program to promote the school. It involved professional pictures and interviews of students and staff. I recommend Cedar Crest.

When I began at Cedar Crest I did not realize it was an all womens college until my first day on campus. They did not market it that way at my highschool (handing out flyers to guys). It is the type of school to go to just to study and go to class.... not for a social life. Most of the students go home on the weekends or sit in their dorm rooms. They have some good student run organizations which was a plus. There is little time for them when you are a nursing student. Being a nursing student at Cedar Crest you are out cast from the rest of the college by staying in one building for classes. I thought there would be compassion... (nurses are supposed to have compassion right?) ...compassion for their students and helping them excel. After pinning (NO GRADUATION) I did not receive one email or phone call asking how things were going. I know other nursing programs that do this and their students are thrilled about it. I felt like a number there.... just feeding them money to continue this education that doesn't stand up to what they say.

As a parent, I would highly recommend NOT paying the costly tuition to send your child to CCC. As far as the nursing program goes, the faculty has one mission and one mission only, to ensure their state board pass/fail rates are in tact. God forbid you child is an average student that works extremely hard and gets excellent reviews in practical application. The faculty is uncaring and withholds criticial information to parents and students, setting the student up for failure. I truly thought we had made a good decision sending our child to CCC but could have never been so wrong. Save yourself the heartache and stress; send your child to one of the many other schools with excellent programs in nursing.

I had a great 4 yrs there. At first, I did not want to be there, but as I got to know people I really liked it. A school is what you make it.
