"I don't recommend saginaw dorsey lpns program.. if you're choosing it because you think it will be faster and easier since a year and doesn't require any pre wrecks.. you might as well just suck it up go to a community college get your pre wrecks done and save yourself money. If i would've been aware of how the "instructors" teach their students, i never would have chose to come here. Instructors gossip about the students. The instructors have an attitude with the students. Disrespectful.. un-organized, they didn't provide us with our tablets until after already being in school for a week. Didn't provide clinical scrubs until about a month in. Favors certain students. Always telling the students that they " didnt study "..Instructors are passive aggressive... the clinical instructors are great! Its more the teachers. Swear some of them get off on seeing people f"

"I have straight As, but I’m unenrolling from Dorsey today %26 already started registration at community college. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, but this school is just... well, terrible. They have poor communication. They changed my clinical date the day before, and then changed it back within about 12 hours of having to be there, and only notified me by email. Then when I missed because of their poor communication, they wanted me to make it up on a Saturday, the weekend in between finals. Uh... no. And come to find out, when they went to clinical, it didn’t even matter if I showed up, because they went and the clinical site didn’t even know they were coming (so they sat there for 30 minutes), didn’t have our logins (so we couldn’t chart on anything we did), and then State came so they didn’t even let anybody get out onto the floor. I am not going $30k in debt to be an LPN to not even get to practice my clinical skills. They also let people stay after they repeatedly break rules and don’t follow through with requirements. Even though it’s a year program, I’d rather just go get my RN for $22k, even if it takes a bit longer. I’m still going to be a nurse and I’m still continuing my education now, but I’m changing schools. I hate money-hungry, scam institutions."

"Don't waste your time. THERE IS ABSOULTELY NO STRUCTURE AT THIS PLACE. No one is there to help. All they care about is money. After they get all your financial information, you are on your own. Were 6 weeks into the school year and I still dont have access to canvas. Its a website/app that keeps track of your grades. I have talked to everyone for help to no avail. I truly don't know how Mrs. Coney has a job with this school. My niece and nephew teach better than her. I've have gone to the higher-ups for support on the situation and nothing has changed. Her teaching is unorthodox. she TAUGHT US that there are 7 vital signs but when you get quizzed on the material the answer was 5 vital signs. Brought up what she has taught us in her class to other instructors and they were baffled at her teaching. She taught us about the good Samaritan act as a nurse and told us we must provide help, when we brought it up to our other instructors, they were shocked. The good Samaritan act was changed in 2106. It is now 2019. She offers tutoring help on previous chapters after we've already started new chapters. Her answer banks are always off so if you answer a question correct and her answer bank says otherwise you get the question wrong even though you applied what you LEARNED from "HER TEACHINGS". I am almost positive if you apply what she teaches in the classes after hers you will fail, as well as applying her teaching in in the medical field you will lose your license. So pretty much you must pay to teach yourself."

"I am a student here at Dorsey Schools and so far my experience has been great! I love all the professor's here and what they have done for me! I was so close by quitting but the instructors and the students there helped me get back together. I recommend everyone to come to Dorsey Schools. I love this School with everything in me and I'm sure you'll love it to."

"This is a poor excuse of a medical education center with lose policies and even worse educating abilities. I cannot express how deeply dissatisfied I am with this institution I hope it closes its doors soon. If you are thinking of trade school, DO NOT GO HERE, this school is worse than a scam."

"Okay so its been years since I attended , but Im still paying loans on a course that was a waste of my time !!! The teachers where not educated enough to be teaching , I knew more then them and when I decided to drop the program because it was pointless the financial department was supposed to send my student loans as pro rated since I didnt finish the course , well that never happened EVER!!! The same course I took at Dorsey in Wayne for 16k I could have takes at school craft for 1/2 that ."

"DORSEY WAYNE is the school of hoodrats. Do not go to this school there is a lot of drama, bullying, and straight up inappropriate behavior between students and staff. I was harassed by a group of hoodrats . One of these hoodrats made inappropriate comments about my body. I felt embarrassed and shocked that another woman would make comments like that. Those comments usually come from men. Miss W loves the hoodrats she is the queen of the hoodrats. I guess it doesn't bother her if they harass other women given how she looks. She lets them do whatever they want in her class. The director didn't care about the hoodrat behavior either. My classmates and I have had a hard time finding jobs as Medical Assistants. Some of my friends are working as nurse assistants (bed pans, baths, changing linens) some of my other friends are working as housekeepers. That is not what we signed up for ! It was a complete waste of time and money . You will end up with nothing but debt. I strongly do not recommend anyone to attend this place. I feel sorry for people desperate enough to attend this dump."

"Where do I begin? The Wayne campus is completely unorganized or its an act to not have to deal with the problems. I never had a problem with financial aide because I paid my bill on time every month but I did not receive statements only 2 and they were several months late. The clinicals were a complete joke and waste of time, one clinical (5 weeks) we sat in the conference room every week and did nothing. Supposed to be lab on fridays, never did anything outside of the first 2 cohorts. Another wasted class day. There was cheating...cheating and cheating but they turned a blind eye even though there was evidence. Good teachers were leaving because they did not want to deal with the BS going on within the dept. During our labs they did not even have the correct equipment to teach and no experience at clinicals. They invited us to the pinning ceremony by group text which I wasn't a part of therefore missed pinning. I passed my boards and have myself to pat on the back for that. When you opt out of receiving actual books they give you a tablet that is the Walmart special, I couldn't download all the books because it ran so slow. This is a money mill school, I do not recommend it to anyone, and that is just about the school. The director and such have bad attitudes and I honestly never wanted to ask a question because i didnt want to deal with the snarky responses. Please consider a different school that will cost you way less money. Also on a sidenote we were told not to leave a bad review as we could be sued?? I would love for the owner of this school to contact me but I'm pretty sure he won't."
