Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2007

The worst experience in my life. I'm an A+ Student, always have been. They give you the lowest grades so you repeat and your bill goes up and up. At first I didn't believe when I read the ratings, I was thinking, maybe these people do not study and end up criticizing professors but you know what after being there, I know it's all true. I have wasted my time and money to never graduate. When you go there don't listen to them saying the success rate at the NCLEX. The question you should ask is what is the percentage that makes it to the final courses and how many courses they have repeated. The answer is less than 5% make it to the NCLEX and most of them have already repeated at least one course what makes the real rate at the NCLEX comparing to the admission is about 2%. Please don't make the same mistake.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The absolute worst experience. I regret not listening to family and friends. I had one good instructor who taught me about nursing and how to be a nurse....but hey, he resigned! The equipment in the lab is old and does not work (broken IV machines, Simulation broken, etc). My OB teacher was lazy and afraid of technology. Administration is out of touch with the nursing program. Some professors were rude and mean especially the professor in charge of the lab. A visit from the state inspectors are overdue. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY BECAUSE YOU WILL RECEIVE A SUBSTANDARD EDUCATION.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

Don't go please out of a class of 70 only a certain number of students got there license . The staff are ridiculous , the management of your time will be wasted. Favoritism will be seen. A bunch of nonsense of blunders. That are just terrible. I don't recommend this place for a overpriced place that can't even afford to fix up. Red flags almost everywhere. I regretted everyday of my school life.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Do not go. In two Semester I had three teachers leave mid semester . Some teacher are ok but others don't care about you at all and our unprofessional. Not worth the time or money go somewhere else. All of my classmates wish they went somewhere else.

Degree: Massage Therapy/Therapeutic Massage
Graduation Year: 2001

Worst school ever. Administration/Registration/Financial Aid is plagued with incompetence and lack of quality. It is a joke that they are even accredited school. It was like this when I attended in 2001 and apparently is still the same in 2015.

Degree: Massage Therapy/Therapeutic Massage
Graduation Year: 2013

This school used to be the best massage school. Some of the instructors say that everything changed when it was sold to another company. They let all kinds of people into this school. Some of them are drug addicts, high at school, people with criminal records. I was shocked. It wasn't what I expected. Most of the instructors are good teachers, but can't get their job done properly because of students that are not smart enough, disruptive, equipment that is broken or that they don't have. The school needs an upgrade. I wouldn't go there if I was choosing a school again.

At the Swedish Institute I was treated like a person, not a number. the instructors took a real interest in me and my hopes and plans for the future. The small classes made it possible for me to get the attention and help I needed, and get my questions answered. The school, located in the Chelsea section of West Manhattan, was convenient for me and the afternoon hours schedule made it easy for me to keep my "day Job". I worked in the morning and attended classes in the afternoon. I was also impressed with the practice opportunities, first working on other students, the the public. I learned to be comfortable as I made my clients comfortable. I learned how to work on clients as well as how to understand my clients concerns and needs. The classroom training gave me the background to really understand where their pain was coming from and come up with solutions for them. Last but not least, I met some really nice people at the school, and I expect that I will remain friends with some of my classmates for the rest of my life. We learned together, studied together and practiced together. We laughed together a lot too. I made some great friends, got an education and became a massage therapist. It was all good!

The Swedish Institute was a good fit for me to take my acupuncture training at as the class sizes and attitude of the instructors was to my liking and learning style. My favorite hallmark of the program is the attention that is paid to the philosophical underpinnings of Acupuncture as a practice, because at SI it is taught as a practice derived from Classical Chinese Acupuncture. It is possible to learn treatment-focused acupuncture that is more Westernized in the way of thought it follows, but I find that the SI treatment of the subject is more authentic and was the method I was interested in learning.. SI instructors are well informed when it comes to the cumulative knowledge that Acupuncture is based on and it set me in the right mindset to learn and practice effectively. Although the coursework is demanding, there was help available if you needed it and all the instructors took an active role in helping me succeed; individual attention while preparing for my practical work was very much appreciated and would not have been available at a larger school.
