Degree: Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse Training
Graduation Year: 2016

Prism Career Institute has a fairly good program with a curriculum that gives you well enough knowledge to help you succeed on the NCLEX-PN and as an entry level nurse. The day program is 12 months and the evening program consists of 15 months. You really have to help yourself when it comes to making sure you understand each subject/class since the program is pretty fast-paced. I would recommend Prism to anyone willing to focus and quickly earn their PN license.

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2015

After working as a Home Health Care provider for sometime, I decided to go back to school to pursue my career in nursing. The first term was challenging, but with the help of great instructors ( in class and Clinicals) determination and lots of studying I made it through. I recently sat for the Nclex and passed!!!! I am now looking forward to helping others.

Degree: Practical Nursing, Vocational Nursing and Nursing Assistants, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

I started classes at Prism Career Institute(Philadelphia Campus) for the Practical Nursing Diploma program on 4/2015. I was terrified, I had been out of school for over 20 years and felt I would not be able to keep up with the demand. I was enrolled by Matt, an enthusiastic enrollment specialist who ensured me that I could do it. Despite all the negativity I've heard about Prism, I have always been the type of individual who believes you get out what you put in. There were times I wanted to give up and quit but I kept on chucking. I had the BEST teachers and clinical instructors who cared about my success, making themselves readily available if I needed tutoring or just a listening ear. As of 8/2/16, I am a LPN and passed my Nclex PN Boards on the first try!!!!! The best 15 months of my life. I highly recommend Prism to anyone who is looking to have a career and not just a job.

I recommend going to this school. They have great teachers, a really good program by far. I had an excellent encounter with this school . They are very helpful and they know there stuff. They want you to succeed so they push you to do great things. All around this school would be rated a 10 to me . Prism Career Institute faculty are very nice , helpful , driven and experienced in all they do for their students . The Medical Assistant program is highly recommended . They want you to pass the certification test . They give you everything your going to need to study from books, notes, hands on and even study guides and most of all there personal experiences with the field of study. Totally recommend this school!!!!!!

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2016

Prism is an awesome school. Of course, everything doesn't always come easy but its well worth the hard work that pays off in the long run. I would highly recommend Prism to anyone who is looking for a nursing program to start their nursing career whether its CNA or LPN. I'm grateful and thankful for attending this program, because I actually learned everything that I needed to in order to pass my NCLEX-PN. Coming from a different nursing program that didn't completely prepare me, or even try to go above an beyond to see what was challenging to me. Prism accomplished that. I've met some wonderful people here that only wants best for you and will continue to push you through when everything seems unmanageable. Giving a special Thank You individually to Mrs. S., Ms. Marlene, Mrs. R,, Ms. L., Mrs. S. and also our New DON Mrs.B. for understanding and helping in anyway possible such as tutoring sessions, or guidance counseling.

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a single parent of 4 teenagers and felt it was time to go back to school for what I always wanted to be. I wasn't prepared to enter into an RN program and found Prism. As with learning anything else, it was something that I completely wanted for myself and took from it everything I could. Prism gave me the foundation and knowledge I needed to begin my career and look further at my education. In passing the NCLEX the first go round, I can say that I am satisfied with all that Prism has helped me achieve.

Degree: Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse Training
Graduation Year: 2016

My prism journey began when i was giving my cousin a ride to do her intake. As I sat there waiting for her I said to myself "you might as well sign up and go to school because your not doing anything. That choice right there became the best decision of my life. Going to school and becoming a lpn has change me in so many ways. I learned a lot from my instructors. I will highly recommend this school for any one just thinking about going to school.

Degree: Practical Nursing, Vocational Nursing and Nursing Assistants, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

I am a wife and mother of three children. I worked for a major weight loss company for about 8 years and came home everyday feeling unfulfilled. I decided to began my career in nursing and enrolled into Prism Career Institute. I can say that was one of the best decisions I could make. The Instructors in both the classroom and clinical setting proved to be a valuable resource in this industry. I graduated 2nd in my class and passed state boards, with a tremendous amount of support. I have a great rapport with my instructors and still keep in touch to this day. I feel that Prism gave me the skills that I needed to go out and be a successful entry level nurse. Career services at Prism is the best! After passing boards Marlene worked with me at my pace to help me find a job that was right for me. I know have two jobs in a rewarding field with endless opportunities for growth. Prism is more than an learning institution but rather like a family. I would recommend anyone that has a desire to become a nurse that they start with Prism.

HORRIBLE!!!! RUN FAR FAR AWAY a waste of time and hard earned money.....will never recommend to anyone. They pass people just to pass them and get the money if you fail a class they pass you thru just so there ratings go up Very unorganized no communication with students they don't care as long as they get your money they don't care about students.
