Brightwood College was/Kaplan/Maric once you graduate they will not help you... just wait and see, that why they keep changing the names. The people that work their will refuse to help with your own loan resources that you pay for, you will not have access with anything and the name will change again, just wait and see.
Brightwood college is a friendly environment! the teachers and staff make sure they can help you in every way possible to help you succeed! They also help prepare you for what to expect in your field including interview preparation which helped me a lot. I truly left the school feeling prepared!
I had a great experience at this school. The teachers were all amazing! I feel like they prepared me in every way possible for what I needed in the field. I am now working in the field and have been since the day after I was finished with my externship.
Fast program. Full time lots of work. Good thing graduate short time. Either days or eve. Clinical is al day. Can't miss school days or labs. Don't cancel for weather or emergency or kids which you would need back up plans and tons of support. Bad thing credits don't all transfer.
Kaplan College of Las Vegas. Well here it is the teachers were good. The Dept head was great. The learning was adeuate. But the bad was after the certificate there was no jobs, no one in town liked or trusted Kaplan or there students, from what I saw 3 people in 1 whole class were hired that is awful. Suggestion is stay clear of this school which is now going by Brightwood go figure that one lolol.
Please,please don't,t waste your time and money! 9 months of kindergarten- can't describe it with over words. And it is very hard to find a decent job that will pay you more than minimum wage. But they are really good at telling you "stories" how will this course will improve your career.
Had a great time at this school teachers and all staff were extremely helpful when I had concerns about homework or didn't understand subject completely. Classes held on campus which made learning more individualized when needed. All staff willing to help you out. Teachers actually cared about the students success and ensured students would pass class by offering tutoring before or after class if needed. You could also email instructor anytime and within 24 hours receive a reply.
Best option while maintaining full time job too. Outrageous financial services and loan, penalization and such.
My extern experience was cringe worthy. The doctor in charge told me the following analogy. "Think of a baseball game. You know what a bat is, and what a ball is, but you do not know how to play the game." I was thrown into a job externship where the woman to train me was already on maternity leave. I had no idea how to start on my own using their computer program. The doctor was rude, I wanted to leave. Kaplan never returned my call when I asked to be placed elsewhere. The end result was my extern position was as a collector for unpaid bills. Calling the same people over and over again each day. I graduated with a certificate as a medical office specialist. I looked for a year trying to get State certification elsewhere. The end result is I am working at an elderly care facility as a housekeeper. I have another 6 1/2 years of paying down this debt.
I was working minimum wage job untill I enrolled and finished medical assistant and Phlebotomist programs. Now I am certified, I am employed full time and love what I do. The pay is great benefits are amazing. Kaplan college have the best teachers who still in field and who inspired me every step of the way.
