A person who is not serious, or who is just trying to get into the field of nursing for the money, should not attend West Coast University. Our semesters are done in 9 week units, so the courses are extremely rigorous. If a person is not dedicated to the profession then they will not succeed. Nursing is a profession which requires the nurse to be dedicated to what they do in order to provide the best possible care. Unfortunately, the profession is filled with nurses who are run down. This school takes all of your time and energy, if you can't cut it in this school, you can't cut it as a nurse.
