"I came to CNC and it immediately felt like family, like home. My classmates were really close, and our instructors really cared about our learning. Even if you emailed them at 11 p.m., they were happy to help you. Everything they taught me at CNC, I’m able use at the hospital. When I did my practicum, they said I was one of best prepared students they ever had."
