I chose because it was affordable and close to my home. At STI I liked that the time spent in class was always well utilized. There was never a wasted moment or boredom. It was filled with so much information to take in. For externship, all the details were worked out before you even got there. You knew where you were going and what to expect. You also met with your predecessor beforehand so you knew at least one familiar face before you went on your first day. STI staff is A+! They all know what they are teaching and offer their own experiences in the field. My best experience at STI was graduation! I also liked that CPR was included in the curriculum. It is a challenging program but you will be completely equipped and prepared for a job in the workforce.
