THIS SCHOOL IS SO BAD. THERE HAS BEEN I BELIEVE TWO LAWSUITS THAT HAVE HAPPENED WITHIN A MONTH. THE TEACHERS ARE PRETTY MUCH THERE JUST FOR A PAYCHECK. NO ONE EVER KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON BECAUSE THE POLICIES ARE ALWAYS CHANGING AND THE TEACHERS SEEM TO COME AND GO. THIS IS THE AUSTIN LOCATION, AND IS LOCATED IN A BAD AREA: YOU CAN TELL NOT ONLY BY THE AREA BUT ALSO BY THE STUDENTS. NECK TATTOOS..ETC... BUT I HEAR THAT THE SAN ANTONIO LOCATION IS THE SAME. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME COMING IN.. YOU ARE GOING TO BE OUT 30K AND BE VERY UNSATISFIED. I WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF THIS LOCATION CLOSED. IF I COULD RE-DO I WOULD GO FOR MY RN AND NOT WASTE A YEAR OF MY LIFE. ALL THE GOOD TEACHERS THAT WERE THERE HAVE ALL LEFT BECAUSE THEY COULDNT STAND IT THERE EITHER. NOW ALL THATS LEFT ARE TEACHERS THAT HAVE NO KIND OF EXPERIENCE AND DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO TEACH. THE WHOLE PROGRAM IS BASED ON PASSING THE "ATI" BUT YOU HAVE TO DO THAT ON YOUR OWN TIME, BESIDES ALL THE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS THAT YOU TURN IN THAT ONLY GET COMPLETION GRADES. THE REASON THAT THEy ARE NCLEX PASSING RATE IS SO HIGH IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO GET A GREEN LIGHT TO TAKE THE EXAM AND MAYBE 1 OUT OF 5 WILL ONLY GET THAT LIGHT. SO GOOD LUCK IF YOU DECIDE TO GIVE THIS PLACE A CHANCE.
Everything is bad, there is no structure what so ever. The instructors are the kind that just read powerpoint slides and refrain from answering questions. You could probably learn more from opening a book and teaching yourself than what any instructor will. Also they lose instructors/ administrators like every other week. It really feels like that place is falling apart
Attending this school was my biggest mistake! Unstructured, some of the instructors don't know the curriculum themselves but have these high stipulations for the students! It's over priced, it's just not worth it! Go ANYWHERE Else or simply just don't attend school at all if career point is the best place you can do!
Update: so now that they have gone through and fired a ton of instructors, most that had gotten complacent, they are workin the new ones to death and burning them out. All the while they keep hiring new ones that are,for lack of a better word, morons. And in the event you might have a complaint or grievance they will tell you take it through proper channels, or just tell you if you don't like it to leave or to shut up. Both of which I recently heard the assistant director of Nursing tell 2 students while standing next to the director of Nursing and the faculty coordinator. Think they care about the student? Think again.
The school constantly changed rules and policies. They would say something and do another. While we were there the school had about 9 DONs. We had teachers leave halfway through our classes or no teachers at all. The school took 8 months to get our books. We were basically on our to teach ourselves with no books. We had about 10 different schedules and things would change as the new directors would come in. At one point we had a non qualified teacher teaching a RN class illegally. The concept teaching methods they use do not work especially when they require you to get a 92% on a predictor.
WORST SCHOOL EVER DO NOT GO HERE TAKE THIS AS A WARNING! THEY WILL ACT LIKE THEY CARE BUT WILL ONLY GIVE YOU THE RUN AROUND THE STAFF ARE RUDE AND DISORGANIZED! INSTRUCTORS TEACH MULTIPLE COURSES EACH CLASS YOU BASICALLY TEACH YOURSELF . DO NOT COME HERE!!!THEY CHARGE WAY MORE THAN SOME REAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITY'S! I WOULD GIVE IT NO STARS IF I DIDN'T HAVE TOO. I HAD ALL A'S TRIED MY BEST BUT THE SCHOOL AND STAFF ARE THE WORST!!!
Career point college is the worst school. Before enrolling here, I did a lot of research and decided to attend this school especially because they had the best pass rate in nclex. But that is because you must pass their ati exam with a 92% before they will let you take the nclex. But it really doesn't make sense that in a class of 30 students. Only 8 students take the nclex, Galen school graduates about 80 students and they all take their nclex, yet they pass with 80%. So looking at it critically, this school doesn't do well because they don't let all their students to sit for the nclex. Another thing here is ati. In my last semester, I failed mental health, the director asked me and the other students to go back to med surg 1. I wrote A letter of complaint to Texas workforce comission and it was solved. Came back to repeat mental they came up with another procedure that even if your overall grade is 75% or more, if you don't pass the ati with a level 2, you will have to repeat the class. I ended up passing with an 87%, but me and other students were asked to repeat the class because we didn't make a level 2. Then 2 weeks after they told us they are sorry for what they did, and that the procedure has been canceled. It was 2 weeks late for us to join in the leadership class, so we had to wait for 2 months. They wasted our time for no good reason. The school is very disorganized, they change procedures like underwear. I'm going to sue them for wasting my time. They need to be organized and stop frustrating students. Every school has its own drama, but in career point, it's worst. I will not recommend this school.
I think that CPC is a overall good school. People do need to do their research before hand and take responsibility for their decisions. As with any huge financial or life decision, it takes a good amount of time and reasoning to make the best decision for YOU! I chose CPC because the schedule fit around my life. I work full time and needed to find evening classes. CPC also has a daycare that fits my class schedule which is another thing that I needed in order to further my education. I also looked at the school's pass rate which is the second highest in San Antonio. CPC does have its Pros and Cons. Before you go into any big decision, make sure that you know what you want and need. Take a look at your circumstances and what it will take to get to your goal. This school is perfect for me! But it may not be for you. I graduate with my Vocational Nursing this fall and couldn't be happier! I also plan on enrolling into their LVN-RN program soon after
This school is a rip off ! You all need to keep track of all the Financial aid and how much your course of study is because what ever money you have left is suppose to be refunded to you ! They were trying to say that only Degree students were allow to get a refund ! No that's not true a refund is suppose to go to you if you have any money left !!! this school is keeping all your refund money ! So please keep a record of everything because this school might owe you money !!!!
Another CURRENTLY enrolled student here. Run away and keep running. They lied to me since I first walked through the doors. And no I am not a bitter flunky or drop out. I am currently enrolled and passing all classes. Not only do they lie about everything including schedules but they also change their policies and procedures like underwear. And the last Director of Nursing was asked to step down. When the new hire showed up they called security to force her out before her last day. When her replacement saw how she was treated, she also walked away. If that's how they treat administration imagine how they treat us.
