“I've been impressed by the graduates of Casa Loma who walk in the door, and have a maturity, have an obvious caring heart. They test very well on their skills. They are knowledgeable and seem to be above the average as far as the college of those who walk in the door. I think this says a lot about the calibre of the instructors at Casa Loma College and a curriculum that is thorough, comprehensive and results in nurses who are thoroughly trained and really able to hit the ground running. Colleges like Casa Loma are an integral part of the whole picture of good nursing services because they bring these young men and women in and put them on a path to be competent, caring, compassionate caregivers in the home and so we need those kinds of young men and women. The opportunities are endless in the medical field and with technology exploding the way it is, more and more opportunities are there. They need more hi-tech people. They need more people on the floors in the hospitals and in homecare. There are many different medical fields that one can choose. And I think what's exciting is you might not know that they're even out there, and that's why come to a place like Casa Loma College and talk to a counselor and find out what career path would be perfect for your personality and your motivation. When I receive the application from our HR person, that says this is an applicant from Casa Loma College, I immediately feel this is quality walking in the door. This will be skills that I will get through really easily and this person is going to have good knowledge and someone who I know feel really comfortable and hire this person from Casa Loma College at assisted healthcare. Casa Loma is quality. It defines passion or graduating people with strong skills. People with integrity.”

Front Desk Coordinator, Urgent Care

“I had my little girl who would look up to me. I would go to school and she would go to school. I'll never forget the morning when she told me 'Mommy I 'm so proud of you.' I asked 'Why'? It's because both of us are going to school. It was the best day of my life. I had accomplished something and made something of myself to better both of our lives.”

RN, Owner-Labor of
Love Nursing Service

“Casa Loma College helps prepare you for your state boards. Not only was I prepared for the NCLEX but they really prepared me to actually be an RN. The things that they taught me were well above the scope of practice of what I needed to know but they wanted me to be prepared. When I sat for my boards, without a doubt, I sat for 45 minutes, and I passed.”

“Casa Loma is family-oriented. The class sizes are small but personal. When I walk in the door, they know who I am. That's what I like about this place. It's a family. You're not a number here. They're not out for your money. They're out here to help you, to make you a better person.”

“Casa Loma College has been around since 1966. At the time I checked, graduation rates were up in the 90% and their state board pass rates were up in the 90%. I visited many campuses in the valley area, it was the best. They had a very well lighted skills lab. The faculty had answers to questions I had to ask. They had a program written out that I could look at. They had questions for me to make sure that I was a good fit for the program. I felt very comfortable.”
