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.

Degree: Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

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!

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2011

Went to school around 2010 2011 stayed for two and a half years for Paralegal studies which they now no longer offer they were ghetto a rip off they cared more about the day classes then their night classes they never offered their Paralegal class internships to any law firms so I never got to practice what I learn which by the way was nothing towards the end they started making up classes that had nothing to do with the course they kept changing teachers and people who run them we were taught by so called teachers and lawyers who did not no what they were doing I did have one good law professor and that was Dave Kline he tried his best to do what he could so that we could get the best experience and get our monies worth but he could only do but so much. None of the people I graduated with got paralegal jobs I remember one time they lost their accreditations and was on probation I want to go back to school but I'm afraid that other schools would look at my transcripts and shake their heads I learned nothing from that hole in the wall and also I'm staring to wonder if my associates degree is even real .DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL GO TO A REAL SCHOOL BECAUSE I DONT EVEN CONSIDER IT TO BE A COLLEGE Its a playground for ghettoness I went to the one in Upper Darby PA stay away or you will regret it I sure am and I never did find a job what I studied for smh
