Jasmit - 09/11/2019

Carrington College of Sacramento is a private, fast paced school where they offer schooling for many different programs. I had attended the ASN program, LVN to RN program. There are amazing instructors whom help you succeed not just in school but in your career. You have a library with amazing teachers whom proof read your work for you and help you with any question or computer problems. Clinical sites are impressive and not your normal skilled nursing rehabilitation. My overall opinion is if you want to do your schooling and you want to do it fast and also with no other option. This is your school to go to. Good luck!

Alyssa - 06/26/2018

Over all the Sacramento campus is very clean when you walk in. I have had a couple appointments with admissions to get into the LVN-RN program and I am not disappointed so far by how they come off. They show that they really care about students and ensuring they succeed while also making sure they maintain good grades. I will be starting school here in November 2018 and I am excited to start.

Jennifer - 05/11/2018

The class size is small and the class schedules are very accommodating with my work schedule. I feel confident I am on my way to achieving my goals and would recommend and have recommended this school to others.

Ryann - 02/20/2017

I think it is a great school, very success based. There are tons of resources to make sure that you are able to do everything you can to ace your classes. The student library is always open to students, and there is always a tutor you can go to if you need some extra help.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    I truly love how open the open door policy really is. The teachers and staff are really laid back and they all make sure that all students know that we can come to them for any issues that we have, whether it is personal or academic or financial. The coordinators and other higher staff members will come in to each class once in a while just to check on everyone and establish relationships with all of us to make sure we know we can be comfortable enough to ask for anything we may need.

  9. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I like to tell everyone about how flexible and comfortable the environment is. Since I go to a trade school, people of all different ages and backgrounds attend my class, which makes everyone feel relaxed instead of pressured to be the same as everyone else and the teacher treats everyone as their own person. Although there are strict rules about professionalism, everyone is allowed to put their own originality on their uniforms, mannerisms, and school work.
