Report
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
I very much enjoyed the small class sizes, there was more opportunity for one on one work with
the teachers.
I really liked that the program got right into hands on learning. Also liked how the clinicals were
spread out through all semesters.
Relevant classes, hands on learning
I liked that it gave me the chance to experience large and small hospitals. I helped me in the
decision of where I would like to work.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
I would include more career prep, like having us work more on our resumes, and cover letters.
Making it a grade to go and talk to the career services they are a great resource and so many
students dont know or wont take the time to go there.
This program needs to let new students know that it is impossible to work a 1st shift job. Also it
was kind of misleading when the program changed from 16 weeks at large hospital to under 12
weeks forcing you to have to drive further distances for a longer period of time. Felt at times I
was treated like I was back in high school...nothing against the teachers it just is that they are
trying to help you succeed and in doing so make you feel that way (I guess since I had a degree
already I didn't feel the need to do special projects to help learn etc.)
It was very fast paced and a little hard to keep up
I know it has to be done but driving 40 minutes to an hour to clinicals is not the most ideal thing.

feedback, comments, or suggestions about your experience
at Western Technical College.
Text Response
Great program, would and have reccomended it to multiple people. Sad to leave, great time.
Overall experience in the past two years is really great. I feel that this college better prepares
students for the real world compared to UW-La Crosse and goes the extra mile to help students
acutally get jobs.
