I cannot say enough about Veritas. I had to take the RN refresher course after being out of practice for six years. The owner and staff, which are mostly family were unbelievably helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. My instructor, Louis, treated us all as adults and is extremely knowledgeable. They anticipated my needs before I knew I would have them! The process was seamless and everything is offered right there at the school should you choose to use their CPR certification and/or get your physical through their physician. The refresher course is board approved and I promise you that you will have a wonderful experience.
