I see a lot of people complaining on this site and it really irks me. For one thing everyone that has gone to this school has done it because they chose to. This school isn't easy but the nursing field isn't a walk in the park. Not all of the teachers are perfect and some are better at teaching than others. Everyone has a different style you just need to learn to adapt to it. If you can't then don't even bother becoming a nurse because you will have to constantly evolve and adapt to your surroundings and environment. As for people complaining about having to take the green light exam prior to being able to take the NCLEX that is for a very important reason. I kept up with my ATI and read the ATI books that were given to us all the time. I green lighted a full week before we were done with school then I took the NCLEX 2 weeks later and I PASSED with the minimum questions. You will get from this school as much as you are willing to give. This isn't high school and the teachers won't just hold your hand and tell you everything is going to be ok. You have to put the work in if you want to become a nurse. It is hard and I recommend this school and program to anyone who is serious about their studies and won't moan and complain about how they are giving them $30,000 and its too hard and the teachers aren't very good. Truth be told IT IS HARD! Before you apply think about it and make sure you can make the commitment to study and do a lot of school work. The administration does have a high turn-over rate but they are able to get by. Also, always make copies of any important papers- immunizations, and copies of exam/ATI/HESI grades because accidents do happen.
I am thankful the Career Point College, Tulsa Campus, has a program that helped me receive my high school diploma. I was unable to pass the math section on the GED (trig and calculus) and thought there was no hope of graduating. I heard from a friend about the diploma program and was able to graduate with the Penn Foster diploma and now have a better job. Great teachers in the classroom that helped me one-on-one everyday.
RUN!!!!!!! do not come here, a waste of your time. they lie and lie some more. go to hallmark, gaylan, anywhere but here. dont even think about being able to pin unless you get their green light which is so inorganized that only a few do before pinning so all your hard work is thrown away and your 31000 dollars
I would NOT recommend this school to anyone!!! If you have other options please seek them out, they are full of lies and deception. They promise you all this wonderful stuff when you first sign up then BOOM reality actually hits you. Their pass rates are crap, don't believe what they show you. There's a high teacher turn over rate, and they always blame it on the teacher and never administration. There are a FEW good teachers there but only a FEW!!! There's sooooooooo much more that I could say about this "school" they're Very unorganized, they don't communicate well AT ALL, oh and the credits you receive won't transfer anywhere else so if you decided in the middle of the term that the school is crap then you're just out of luck and out of $30,000. Please please please if you have another option to go to another school please do.
This school was probably the worst decision I have ever made! I strongly recommend going ANYWHERE else! They can't keep staff or administration personal longer that a month without firing them. The professor named Dr. Swanson is probably the worst human being alive! If a complaint is filed against her and and the possibility of being linked back to you watch out she will manipulate lie and con in an attempt to get you removed from the program (this happened to a friend of mine), and the director and assistant director are to ignorant to realize how horrible this woman is. It says something when other professors wish you luck with a feeling sorry for you tone when they find out she is your professor. They steal your money and leave you high and dry! This place is a joke! If I could give it negative stars I would!
Very unorganized. Administration doesn't get along. You go through 2 teachers in one semester. Highly unorganized study material. Don't use hardly of the books. Teachers aren't interactive. Highly recommend looking into other programs and this one last.
Bad bad bad and very dramatic. I feel like I'm back in High School. I would Not recommend this school to anyone. If you have the opportunity to go somewhere else do it! There is absolutely NO organization. The kids here are young and VERY immature. !!
The Paralegal associate degree was suppose to be a great program. It wasn't organized at all. I got sick and had to take a leave of absence but when I tried to come back there were no teachers to help me. They were cancelling the program but they lied. I now have to pay for money that they received for degree that they didn't let me finish. The sad part is that I got my first degree there in 1992 and graduated 2nd in my class. They have just wasted my time and money that I could be saving for my son in college just not this college. Most people who had negative comments were correct about the changes were constantly happening and for the better of the school or students. They don't pay good money so people leave.
Pay $30,000 and use 2 books for 5 classes. They are usually good about giving breaks, but only 10 minutes. You may be able to go urinate in 10 min but anything else hold it. Because if you take say 15 min. You get locked out until the next break. So you end up paying them 30k to tell you to hold it and lock u out? Newsflash I am paying you, not the other way around.
Update: still moving along. They've hired more instructors and I use that term loosely. I'm in one class that is basically a waste of time. It's a "filler" class. The other is being "taught" by an instructor that won't or can't put a lecture together. 100% self learning. I could do this at home. Not to mention we won't be getting the clinical hours required because they are trying to be sneaky by substituting lab for clinicals. About to be reported to the Texas workforce commission and the state Board of Nursing.
