Stay away from this scam. This school just takes your money. Instructor s are incompetent. They chose whom to pass and fail these they don't like. If you have $30000 to blow tho is the place to go. Waste of time and money . Stay away from this place
I graduated Prism back in 2014. For starters at the time for me the school was full of drama students arguing with students/teachers, and vice versa. It was hard to stay focused in that environment when someone was always disrupting the class. Fast forward to extern day well the better sites were given to the students whom the teachers showed favoritism. Even after complaining about my site they student services said they didn't have an available site, and if I took a new one I would have to start my weeks over. Smh. I completed my extern in an office that only had me pull and file charts for 4wks, nothing else. Now I'm back at student services to get help finding work which was a disaster. They were doing the same thing I was doing by putting my resume on job sites like indeed, monster, and career builder. I was unable to obtain employment so I went back to work as a certified nursing assistant. In 2016 I had made an inquiry for job recommendations, and I was told that the school changed the certification status from the NRC to NCCT. Like wtf to that. So you mean to tell me that I basically wasted 10 months of my time, fried my brain to pass these certification exams, and still have no career because the certifications I hold are not accepted by majority of the companies. Well now I know why the school changed back over to NCCT. It's a shame because I know I'm not the only one having these issues. It is now 2017 and I have still been extremely engaged in my employment search, and yet I am still unsuccessful. I get emails and phone calls from what i think is potential employment, but they only responded to say I don't hold the proper licensure. I am beyond frustrated and pissed off because I worked really hard graduated and past all my exams. Unfortunately I am still a Certified Nursing Assistant who is still about 17 grand in debt to Prism Career for a program in Medical Assistant was useless
Poorly run school. Instructors are incompetent , keep students extra terms, fail these who they don't like. Take money for repeat classes.constantly fail students , pass only these who they want . Don't provide material needed, sell many books to students.
Great school.allows most students to enroll study and graduate patience with students professors I excellent. Help me with my career now I have a great job I enjoy taking care of patients and have meaningful occupation. I highly recommend the school to anyone who wants to start studying to become an LPN
I attended the AC campus and it was the worst program ever. Ms V. and Mr S.J. were amazing but unfortunately they are not the only two teaching. Please do not attend this school and waste your money they are only interested in making money you will be teaching yourself for $28,000. I wish someone could've posted this for me before I attended!.
Prism Career Institute is the worst school to attend, I really strongly recommend that no one apply to the Cherry Hill Campus, The CEO and DON of the school look down on you like you are nothing, education wise well let's just say forget it and that you are basically teaching yourself, all the teachers act like they are scared of the DON & really jump when she say how high, they can't never seem to keep the decent teachers because of lack of respect & improper teaching skills that the schools DON requires, had I knew what I no now I would not have waisted my time on my money attending to such a horrible structured school!
For those who want to pursue a career in nursing. Please look into other schools other than Prism, Philadelphia. The school was horrible! I just recently graduated and feel like this school does not have the equipment to help me successfully pass the NCLEX. The Administration is horrible from the DON with purple hair Tyra down to no instructors! They are quick to request for funds but will supply you with the books and other essential tools needed days prior to the term is over????? Don't let the facade fool you, the fancy sign, doors, and computers ( 50% of them do not work). They treat us like prisoners and children. If i can do it all over again, I would have chosen some place more reputable!! Like the old saying, " Nurses ate their young" well at prism, they devour, manipulate, and shred their students to pieces! Choose wisely avoid PRISM Philadelphia
This school is horrible! I would not refer anyone who is serious about a career to go there. They are all about money no one in the administration cares about the students. They give you textbooks then tell the instructors not to tech from them only the lecture notes that were provided by the DON Barbara Robinson. They pass students who have truly failed by providing answers to test. The staff and school are very unorganized!! Stay away if you can avoid this school don't waste your time and $28,000.
I completed the LPN program at Prism. Like with any school there are ups & downs . I found the one on ones to be helpful, for example if you need tutoring it will be provided. I learn better with teacher/student discussions so Mr.M. St. Joseph was my favorite teacher as he taught this was, unlike most others reading off power point. I wish we had more practical time in pediatrics & a bigger variety of clinicals than nursing homes, but i understand bringing students in this is not always possible. The LPN Program is a bit pricey, & the curriculum did seem to change with every term, but if you needed extra help it was always available & those who complain didn't utilize it. I found S.S. to be absolutely amazing, as well as Vivian Bettis- Her position was filled after i had graduated so we never met but she was super persistent in getting my resume out there & getting me multiple offers. Just use the resources available to you & you will have no problem graduating, passing your boards, & finding a job. One thing, I wish IV Therapy actually taught us phlebotomy instead of powe rpoints. That was a major gripe of mine. Also i wish they taught us to read EKG's, as I found the excuse that it was "on the job training" was used, but in my opinion wouldn't it be better to go into a job already having these skills?!
I'm attending the EHT campus for the Medical Assistant Program. I absolutely loved this school and its instructors. The program was challenging but I was able to keep up and pass every class with an A. I felt that I received the education I needed to be a medical assistant out in the world. I got great experience during my externship. The school has even helped me to get my resume out to assist in getting a job. I couldn't of been happier with my experience.
