Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

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.

Degree: Patient Care Technician
Graduation Year: 2019

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.

Degree: Allied Health and Medical Assisting Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2010

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 .

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2018

Dorsey Wayne is a JOKE!! Do NOT attend. All they care about is the MONEY. Financial aid at the establishment has NO idea what they are doing. They pretend to know what they are doing, but behind the scenes they are FING CLUELESS!! In my year of attending the school, Ive heard of MULTIPLE students that get turned down from their externship days before they are supposed to start. They will tell you something is wrong with your financial aid. Instead of telling you when they find out, a month, possibly months prior. The teachers basically have you teach yourselves. They have no control over the classes, I had to withdraw myself from one class because the teacher had no idea what she was teaching and for as much money as you have to pay, I was NOT sitting in a class trying to grasp the concept of something the teacher couldnt even grasp. The front office lady, C. is a nightmare. Terrible attitude. Always rolling her eyes. The administration in entirety are fake. Fake nice until you enroll. Did I mention they had an outbreak of BEDBUGS and did not tell the student body until someone that was in the class with the student that had them told the wrong person and the news spread thru the school. ONLY at that point did they discuss the issue. Still had students in the exact room the bugs were found. When their secret got out, they assured they had a company come out to spray! So instead of informing students, so they could take necessary precautions, they thought it was best to keep it under wraps. Hoping they eradicated the issue. I recommend this school to NO ONE!! Beware. I almost forgot to mention. Their externship coordinator does not care about where they send you! One girl was told dont follow everything they do, I heard they can be a little shady. Why would that coordinator think it was okay to send a student to somewhere that is not reputable? A joke. This school is a JOKE.

Degree: Massage Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Can I leave negative stars? I was a student at Dorsey. I have attended 3 professional schools and hold a bachelors degree. I attended Dorsey to take on a career change in massage therapy. This school is by far the worst school I have ever attended. There is a qualified massage therapy instructor, but I never had him as a teacher. I had two teachers who were just pulled off the street. One could barely read and the other had literally no teaching ability. When I confronted the director of education I was told "It's hard to find good teachers". Why then, are you in the business of teaching? Why did I spend $18k to self teach and walk away more confused then when I first went in? Horrible school. Do not attend.

Degree: Medical Assistant

DORSEY SCHOOLS is a joke, They don't care about their students nor their employees, Dorsey Schools are horrible and need to be shut down. They take advantage if their students and employees. The Dean  needs to be fired immediately because she is uneducated, unprofessional, unsympathetic to the student body base. She is a terrible and rude person.
