Prism Career Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (70)
I attended Community College prior to attending Prism Career Institute but I needed a shorter program that would allow be to get into the field faster. I found Prism and passed my entrance exam on the first attempt. I was so excited but the first term was challenging. However, I adjusted by the second term and was on my way to success. Looking back, I wish Prism had offered more tutoring support, as there were times I really needed. Nonetheless, last week I took my NClex exam and passed it on the first attempt, so I feel like the school did a good job in preparing me for the exam. Today I am and LPN and I'm extremely proud of my accomplishment.
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!!!!!!
After 4 years working in retail I decided that I needed a change. I always had a passion for helping others and being a nurse has always been a dream of mine. I decided to pursue my dream and attend Prism Career Institute. The instructors at Prism are not only knowledgeable but they are caring individuals who go out of their way to help their students retain the knowledge they need to be caring and responsible nurses. What I love the most about prism is the Sim Lab they provide for their student. It allows you to learn and make mistakes in a safe environment without actually hurting someone. I am a recent graduate and I am excited to take the NCLEX.
Prism Institute gave me the career that I thought I could never have. I was laid off from work and decided to use that time go back to school. This was best decision I ever made. I never grew up thinking that I would be a Nurse and since I am an immigrant and English is a second language, I wasn't sure if I would be able to do the Work. However, the Teachers were real helpful and gave me lots of support and the small classroom environment allowed me to get the attention I needed to succeed. Additionally, the clinical classes gave me the confidence I needed to be a good Nurse. Now I am a graduate and looking forward to my NCLEX exam. Thanks Prism staff and study group, you guys are the best!
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.
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.
My overall experience with Prism was good, which is why I rated the school 4 out of 5. I would have given the school a ratting of 5, as the education was good and I passed my NCLEX immediately after completing but there were a lot of unnecessary inconsistencies with staff and policy. I hope these pros and cons help someone else.
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.
