Prism Career Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (65)
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!!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
This school is a joke. They're only after more money. You get charged for not than they ask. It's s scam, And they just pass anyone to get good ratings. This school is ghetto and for the ppl who study hard to get As its a waste of time cause even if you get an F they pass you. They need to shut this crap down
Fraudulent....just after your money. Quit and went to gcc for 75 percent less. Got CMA for 3500 instead of 15,000. Instructors out a lot...looking at films. Used bate and switch to get more monies. Used pressure tactics to get you to enroll. I actually had instructor tell me the place was being investigated.
So my 60 credit accelerated classes are not recognized by the Philadelphia School district or Keystone Stars....waste of money! My center is closing down as of December 12th. But the teachers are great and very helpful. A lot of colleges do not expect these credits so now I will have a hard time transferring to a university for a bachelors.
Terrible, waste of time. Most of the so called teachers and clinical instructors either have no idea what they are doing or they are the most miserable people you will ever run into. "Clinical instructor" if that's what they want to call her was terrible, rushing you around expecting you to do things you have not been taught, just stands there and looks at you and gives no advice or direction on what to do, very rude in front of patients, just miserable all the way around. Clinical days filled with nothing but drama because of the terrible "instructor". Trust me you can't learn in this kind of environment ! Beware of this "school" think twice before signing up! I wish I had just gone for my RN at the community college. Would not even give one star if that was an option!
