Prism Career Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (58)
I attended evening classes at Prism Carrer Institute. I really don't have anything positive to say about the experience. As far as attendance - people come late and sign in as if they have been there the entire time, and while staff and administration are aware of this, I sign in and out for my truthful hours and end up staying 3 months longer than the rest of my class so I can make up hours. Rediculous!
Just so they can say my butt was in the seat! We went through several teachers, and were at one point without a teacher for about a month, but again, our butts must be in those seats, even if we aren't being taught. I elected not to have the school help me find a job that I simply am not prepared for. The director of the school asked me why I didn't have interest anymore, to which I replied, " I do not feel as though the education I received here is sufficient enough to go out into the work field and feel competent about what Im doing." The reply.."Where ever you get a job, you have to learn the way they do things." so, I ask...why am I going to end up paying over $20,000 to go and learn on my own. Total waste of time and definately a waste of money. I absolutely DO NOT recommend this school to anyone. All I want is my money back....we all know that won't happen.
its crazy how they have students that have criminal records that damn well know they cant get a job and still allow them to get in to the school for classes. They should be sued for everything they got just because they don't tell the students if they have records they wont get hired any where
Overall I was very diappointed with this school. They constantly stressed professionalism and that is the main thing this school lacked. My last instructor could careless if you learned anything at all. This instructor made everything very difficult and was very negative. When I complained to the campus director they did nothing and back this instructor all the way.They even promoted this individual. The program was very unorganized. You never knew what class you were going to next. There was always an issue with receiving a textbook for your class.
I wish I never attended this school.I paid too much money. I felt like I was at the zoo vs a tech school.
PLain and simple dont go!!! i graduate almost a month ago n still didnt get set up with my extern!!! And the eduation is so unorganized and what i mean by that is you dont really learn anything...and they dont give you the books you really need like the ICD-9 books because there to much money haaaa!!! and im paying 6,000 to you for whaT??
I currently attend the Cherry Hill Campus of Prism in the Medical Assistant Program. I hold a 3.96 gpa; My first couple months at Prism i had no complaints. Now i am suppose to be finishing school October and i am not the least bit satisfied. I have learned from all my teachers i feel like i have recieved a good education.
BUT, my last week of Phlebotomy the director had to come into the class for over an hour just to try and figure out what classes we need next and where everyone was going. I have no idea what class im going to on monday! My main problem is the new Externship Cordinator..that is her job title.
They told us in our orrientation how the students with the highest grades will have oppertunities at hospital but now when i ask the Cordinator she said she cannot do that. I have been in her office 3 times and still have not recieved any information regaurding externship. I refuse to finish classes and sit around until SHE is ready to extern me, there are only 5 students externing at the same time. I love the friends I made, and the teachers are good as well, but the new externship cordinator is a NO, as well as the confusion with the schedules
I WENT THERE FOR MEDICAL BILLING & CODING IN 09-10. I WAS VERY PLEASED UP UNTIL I GOT TO THE CODING ASPECT OF THE PROGRAM. I LEARNED NOTHING AT ALL. IF I LEARNRD SOMED THEN YOU DID. MY INSTRUCTOR IN MY EYES WASN'T QUALIFIED TO TEACH IT, YOU CAN'T TELL ME THAT I'M GOING TO BE PREPARED FOR MBC IN THE WORKPLACE DOING CODING AND DONT' HAVE THE PROPER TRAINING. WE DID'T GET THE BOOKS WE NEEDED FOR THE CLASSES WE HAD AND THEY GAVE US CLASSES WE COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT. DON'T WASTE UR TIME OR MONEY GOING TO PRISM CAREER INSTITUTE. YOU WILL BE MAD AND PISSED OFF TRUST ME.
I wouldn't tell anyone to waste their time at this school. No one knows what they are doing, completely unorganized!! When I initially came in to learn about the school, it sounded great, nothing they said would happen, has happened. Waste of money!!
