Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (202)
Going to Lincoln Tech in Edison, NJ was the biggest regret in my life. I went there when it was fairly new (we were only the third class). The school was terrible. It was highly unorganized, I didn't learn anything that was actually needed and it did not prepare me for nursing jobs. I spent over $20, 000 going there and now I'm in debt with loans. I passed the classes with flying colors and grated with "honors" and I still failed the NCLEX the first time. They told us that the previous class had a passing rate of 80 something percent but what they didn't tell us was the class size was considerably smaller because it was the first one. My friends and I did not know that and a lot of us failed the NCLEX. We all said we were not ready even though we did well in the actually classes and clinical. Till this day, I still have not gotten a job but I have gone to interviews. One of the places even said that Lincoln Tech was not a great school. If you really want to become a LPN, go to Middlesex VoTech. It is only a 1/4 of the tuition, they apparently more organized, and have a higher passing rate. Or even better, if you can get into a community college nursing program, go there because you can actually get a degree.
Terrible school. Tuition is around $30,000. for the nursing program. Once you are in, it's great at first. If you fail a class you are allowed to take the course over. The school does not give any student support if you need extra help. The teacher do not go over your test with you in class to see what you got wrong. You have to make an appointment with the teacher, if she/he wants. The school charges you $300.00 for the CHEAPEST scrubs on the planet. The Director of Nursing at the Hamden office has no business running a nursing school. No compassion what so ever at the school. Out of my class there was 31 students....9 graduated. That speaks volume. If you are wanting to go to nursing school, RUN FAR AWAY FROM LINCOLN TECHNICAL IN HAMDEN CONNECTICUT.
The biggest regret of my life has been going to Lincoln Tech. I went for the MA program. Awesome 4.0 GPA, only missed 2 days out of the entire year. My parents are in a $13 thousand debt for a school that won't even get me a job. The job itself sucks anyway. Be a doctor, nurse, or some tech if you REALLY want to help people. My externship was horrendous. I was at a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and physical therapist. They were all very nice. The horrendous part: all I did was clean, stuff envelopes, and file! I washed dishes, did laundry, took the garbage out, cleaned the entire fucking building..... This isn't the shit I went to school for. I was basically just a cleaning lady. I barely got to do actual desk work (it was administrative). I was lied to. I was told I'd assist with patient setup. Guess what I did? None of that. 6 weeks of this bullshit. Cleaning, stuffing envelopes, nothing productive. No offices are hiring. One lady gave me a dirty glare when I said I was from Lincoln. Bitch gave me my resume back. I acted and dressed professionally to all the offices I went to. All the job listings I get are way too far; they know I don't drive. Also must be bilingual and certified in all this stupid shit. I barely got any help with my clinical stuff. So I'm not clinically certified. Limited in jobs. It's a shitty job anyway. It's basically just watching the doctor do everything. Just become a doctor, or even a nurse. At least you're involved in people's health. Or even a physician assistant. Lincoln said they sent my resume to an office. I followed up. They said they did not receive a resume. It was a recycling office! I was told by the career services lady that there's a front desk position in a nearby town. Great! She told me to wait for a call. What? Don't I call to follow up? She did not give me the name or number for this place. This was a week ago. I hate this place. Not recommending to anyone. A waste of $13 thousand fucking dollars. I still have my Lincoln scrubs. I want to burn them so bad. When I hear the word Lincoln Tech I wanna rip my ears off. It's a scam. It'll leave you jobless and in debt. It's a pointless job anyway. Going back to emergency medicine which is USEFUL AND ACTUALLY BENEFITS SOCIETY.
Short and sweet, Everything everyone is saying is very true! To help your self ,I would start at a community college that way your credits will transfer in case you want to further your education later. I am looking into a degree in engineering and my credits are useless. Or should I say the credits I thought I had. And on top of it all. Most employers all but laugh at you when you say I graduated with honors from Lincoln tech . Please do not go here .You will thank me later.....
Lincoln tech is very unorganized school. nothing arrives on time example books,uniforms,tools. way to many and long breaks and early release students way to often .No cafeteria also is a trouble.also be ready to see some student that are there just because government paid for it,that doesn't give a crap basically talking during the whole class that all make you feel very disappointed right at first day of course , plus is not cheap to begin with it 24k them if you decide to withdraw from school like i did because all of that they will charge you around 10% to 25% in the first month...... just sharing my experience.
Everybody gives lincoln tech a bunch of crap but I went there for 13 months I graduated and it actually help me get a job in the automotive career field however I have recently changed over to an IT position and I am now thinking about returning to lincoln tech for their IT course I never had any issues while I attended lincoln tech the instructors there are well suited for their positions if you need help all you have to do is ask and they will help I know that the people I went to school with are doing the best they can with the economy in their towns that is the only reason I'm not in the automotive field right now however I have the knowledge so that when the automotive industry recovers in my area or if I move to an area where it is in good shape I will be able to retain an automotive related job I was a mechanic in the military for diesel vehicles so I went to lincoln tech for automotive and I feel their training is adequately identical to the military training I received after talking two other soldiers that have attended lincoln tech they're diesel program is said to be the exact same program we take in the militaryI feel all this passion of lincoln tech in the reviews is independent views but if you really try hard you can achieve the goals that you have set with the education you receive with lincoln tech
First thing they withheld the truth they say job placement never happens the only thing they do is a resume no help getting interviews as far as classes if you ask for lab hours that's supposed to be part of the course they consider anytime your out of the chair looking a parts no hands on training as promised faculty doesn't know what is going on job fair never had employers only banks and services simply put don't make my same mistake
School is all about money they call you the first of every month to make a payment while in class. Teachers dont know what there talking about. And don't forget they secretly have you sign a contract where if u drop out of school early they charge you 3,000. Stay Away From This School !
Honestly nursing school is emotionally draining and stressful but at lincoln tech they over prepare you to go into the career. There is so much information that you should know in order to sit for the nclex but with simulated exams you have taken 5 or 6 nclex like exams by the time you graduate so you familiar with the testing style. The teachers are very helpful except for during mat peds. There is alot of drama in the classes during quarter one but the people involved were obviously not focused enough and did not make it to the next quarter. I had a number of life disasters happen to me but because of the support from the instructors and the director of the LPN program i successfully graduated and passed my nclex and so did the intire gradiating class
it's a lot of money and in return your putting back what you earn virtually in your first two years I working listen to the reviews and do a community college instead !
