Everest College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (89)
Admissions Rep, T., G. false information while giving information about their medical assisting program to attract more interest in the program. Beginning of January 2013, I met with T., my admissions rep, who knew I was interest in becoming an RN. I told him, I was only interested in taking a program that would get me a step closer to my RN career. He stated that their MA program would be the best fit for me as oppose to LVN School because " LVNs are running out of work". He also said, there will be bridge courses for MA to RN programs. And as far as LVNs go, they will soon be forgotten as MAs are taking over. I got excited hearing this because I thought this would be a quicker way to become an RN. He also said I would get my CNA certification. Just to clarify, I said "Certified NURSE ASSISTANT" Certification. He said yes, which is another step closer to my goal as an RN. He also said MAs are in demand, and with the help of career services, I should get a job in no time. The truth? -I'm a graduated MA, still applying for jobs along with career services "helping me". They have done my resume for me, so I feel confident my resume is not the problem. It's been months down the road, still no call backs from the leads "they have sent out my resume to". -I have some questions for my admission rep TEO; So can you please tell me more about that school that takes MAs and bridges them off to RN? Can you also lead me to the right direction of where I can get my CNA certification since you said this program would help me? And where you stated I would get time reduced in half for it? OR how about helping me find a school that will take my credits towards my RN PROGRAM. Perhaps you can explain to me or point me in the right direction as far as putting my one year of schooling from EVEREST towards my RN program? (I cant express that enough as I feel I wasted a whole year on this when I could of started my ACTUAL PROGRAM) Since I told you I didn't want to waste time, and that I wanted to JUMP right in to my CORRECT PROGRAM THAT WILL GET ME STARTED ON MY CAREER THAT I WANTED? -No time reduced, as I am treated like a first year nursing student. No special or different, no credits transferred and all I have to carry with me is my knowledge. Which is what leads me to the answer Ive been hearing from my complaint. "But you have a head start out of everyone in your LVN nursing program, it least you have the knowledge" What I think? No, I may have the knowledge and I may be ahead for the little that the MAs and LVNs have in common, but that certainly does not change my graduation date nor the time I wasted in your MA program. Money wasted once again, I didnt want to waste 20,000 dollars to have knowledge, your MA program is not a PRE-REQ to MY NURSING PROGRAM. So stop giving me the excuse "It least you have knowledge and your ahead of your class" I am happy with the education I got (as far as the teachers go) its the admissions department I am not happy with. Why couldn't Teo just say, "look, if you want to become an RN, You should GO TO OUR ONTARIO METRO CAMPUS WHERE WE HAVE AN RN PROGRAM" OR "Perhaps the MA program is not for you as THERE ARE NO BRIDGES from MA TO RN, maybe you should find an LVN program to better suit your needs" Instead of beating around the bush telling me this is a step closer to my RN Career. 5/19/2014 RYAN from the Student Help Line called. I wish I could of explained my story in person because there was a bit of conflict in our phone conversation. She kept talking over me as I was trying to tell her my story, this school has been nothig but tears to me, no one wants to understand me or HELP! Why can't Everest College just LISTEN to me as the student? I paid $20,000 TO BE IGNORED? Lied To? Lead On? Why did she respond to the BBB, as she didn't know what TEO said to me, she wasn't there. It's all lies..Teo is full of promises and lies, and when it boils down to higher staff, all he did was DENY EVERYTHING. I must have a stamp on myself that says NAIVE, because all he had to do was say, this program is not the track for your career goals....
Such a waste of time...go get the same degree for 1/10 of the cost at a junior college! Don't make the same mistakes I did! Prospective employers and graduate universities laugh at this degree!
Everest is amazing! I have 2 friends that enrolled because of my experience with Everest. Within a week of graduating I got a great job! Everest changed my life!
I started my course in 2012 as a PSW, My teacher was amazing!!! I joined in ambassador program it helps my self esteem and I gained more confident. This course helped me a lot. I am so proud that I choose Everest College for my career course. During my days, months in the campus I was eager to learn new things every single day. I was motivated by my teacher Ms J I owe my success from her. One month before my graduation I got HIRED as a PSW at Leisureworld and Elginwood both Long term Care facility. I graduate after 6-8 months with HONOURS and I'm so proud of it.
Wow you shouldnt go to this school. Teachers are nice but the office is another thing... I was enrolled in for 2 months and they had my transcript for 2 months and after 2 days in school and nights of homework they said I couldnt attend with no compassion. I asked my student rep that because I havent passed that taks test of thats ok and he said he would ask and he never said anything so I assumed it was great and now 2 months later and 2 days after class later they kick me out. WASTE OF TIME ita ridiculous and dissapointing DONT GO HERE its all about money onced your enrolled they dont care.
Where should I start? I commuted 126 miles a day, was a student coach, had a 3.79 gpa and hardly ever missed school. Now I have a loan, I can't get a job, because no one wants to hire someone without experience. NO ONE! I've had over 15 interviews in 2 mos that I felt a connection with the interviewer and they always say I had a great interview and they'd call me right back. And never do.. But when the loan comes due, they will want some sort of payment. My case worker is supposed to work on finding interviews or line ups, and I really don't think she even found 1 business to apply to. I would never go here again, and can only warn people there are just so many medical assistant jobs out there. You can have all the schooling you want, but in the end if you don't have at least 2 yrs experience to go with it, its a moot point. Good luck
Ok so I honestly have just started this program but I found the people nice and helpfull...yes kinda annoying when you are not interested (like me in 2012) but I have 7 month twin daughters and I work full time so to be able to go back to college and I know it sounds like the tv ads but to work around my busy schedule is a blessing and honestly even if the degree isn't a huge step at least I'm back in college and that's what's important right now for me and my family
I like the teacher there everyone is so nice the only thing is that they are always running out of supplies and books for the mod,and when I recieved my book a week after mod start the booklooked bootlegged couldnt even rip out pages because there wasnt any pre cutt crease.This is at the san Bernardino college
So here is my experience. Everest did help me. It gave me a place to work and study for my certifications and the teachers where able to help me while I did that. I graduated with high honors and walked away from my computer program with 4 certifications. I got a job in my industry after school. But here is the problem with Everest. It is not a real college. I had three teachers that taught all the modular classes. Only one of the three teachers actually taught the class. For example in my Computer Hardware class. My teacher gave us the book and set a time table that said what to read and when to turn in the assignments. Now after that first day the teacher literally sat on his computer and looked at email and facebook ever day while we just read the books. He was there to answer any questions but he NEVER taught the class. Every once in a while a he would get a peer review on the teacher. I feel like my teachers had planned curriculum only for when these this happened. As soon as the other teacher sat down and started taking notes he would finally stand up and go to the chalk board and go over something relevant to the class. The classes were easy to get A's so I spent a lot of time prepping for certifications. I new that I would not have a shot at a job with only a diploma from this school. If you use your time well and set your goals high I believe you can make this program work for you. The education given to you by the school is not great and for the amount of money you are paying this school is a complete ripoff. Anyone going into this school should understand that it is not a high quality education.
Do not even mention that you might be interested in Everest College. They have been calling me like 10000 time a day even after I told them I am no longer interested in Everest College. Caused me a lot of troubles at work due to those constant annoying calls. I think they are doing so bad so they just literally hunt for every single person
