I was face with racism, bullying and discriminations in my time of study with the sprottshaw college in downtown Vancouver by an Asian teacher and none of the team was involve to help or stop the act, I struggle with depression and anxiety from the experience but i am trying to encourage myself, i will never advice or encourage anyone to go there because all they want is your money after that they don't support or care about your mental health. i would have not given them a star but i could not post my review without rating them I guess that is how it was set up.

The hca program currently is lacking due to student in-fighting and bullying. Bunch of uncooperative idiots. The welfare queen ruined it.However, the lpn program is great.
