I am currently attending the campus in Casselberry, Florida. I believe that it was previously Americare school of nursing, i read the reviews which were unhelpful, most of these people complain about them pricing for either dropping out, leaving, or someone for FIGHTING! Really fighting?! I would have kicked you out too!
This school is wonderful, the teachers are hands on and experienced. The facility is new, and the equipment is expensive and brand new. My classmates are wonderful and all dedicated to learning. Sure it's pricey but it's private and well worth it if you actually do your work.
I don't know about the other lincoln tech campus' but the one I go to here in Florida is great! They really do care about your education.
To the person who wrote on behalf of LTI. I did not go into Lincoln Tech expecting an easy A, but that's exactly what I got. Consistently I had teachers read entire tests ( including mid course and finals) to the class so each question could be answered. Then immediately handed out the tests for us to take them.
I maintained a 4.0 with perfect attendance for 6 months so don't try to tell me I just didn't apply myself. There was no need to apply myself when I'm in a classroom with people who failed a test on rounding!! That's right folks, not only was a test on rounding part of the curriculum but there were several students that failed it. Some screening process.....
But don't worry there is no student left behind at LTI. IF it takes a week to teach that one person to round then that's what will happen at the peril of everyone around them.
As other people have mentioned, not only does the automotive degree at Lincoln not mean anything to employers, I have had people actually laugh in my face when I told them I went there. The school is a complete joke in the automotive field.
Halfway through Basic electric a student brought his car into the shop because the dash lights didn't work. Turns out the dimmer switch was turned down!!!!. Not only did this student pass electricity but is passing each class since, and I assure you is still the same guy that didn't know what a dimmer switch does. Starting to see why employers think LTI grads are a joke yet????
The school will make sure you pass no matter what. If you show up they will get you through by any means necessary to keep your checks coming in.
Don't fall for this scam like the rest of us did. If you want to get into the automotive field find an entry level position or even an unpaid internship. Learning for free from someone who is actually qualified is better than paying $27,000 to watch someone that worked at a gas station 20 years ago play on the internet.
I can not stand this school i was suppose to be finishing my last mod in the pharmacy tech class today and there tyna fail me in one of my classes becaues of my attendance. i only missed 1 day and was late alot but the kids who miss 4 or 5 days dont get hassled jus because they have a note and this just doesnt make sense to me they can miss 4 or 5 full days nd because im late i have to fail wen all i get is A's and B's and was on the deans list like this is just really crazy to me
they teach us stuff we dont even need to know to work in the pharmacy half of the time we was in class we was doing nothing. everytime i tell people i go to lincoln for pharmacy tech they tell me im wasting my time and its ridiculous that we have to pay all that money when they dont teach us what we should know and how they can just fail you because of attendance makes no sense
Their policy's are bent for some and not othere, you spend as much as you would on 2 years at a community collage. the teachers get into the drama of their students. The worst decision i have ever made in my life was going to this school! not to mention when you get out, nobody wants to hire you b/c of the school's reputation.
This school is not good anyone that goes to Lincoln Tech Brockton Campus will waste their time and money
Lets begin with i am currently enrolled in the LPN course 15 month program at Lincoln tech.
1. They said the credit would transfer- they do not
2. They lied to us about the 15 months and our graduation date which was suppose to be in September and now it is in the end of October making it a 16 month program.
3. They promised Hosipital clinic setting, there are no hosipital clinic sites.
4. They hire teacher that are nurses with no teaching experience, go on careerbuilder.com and the add will even state you just need your BSN no teaching experience required.
5. They do not let student who graduate the course who they think will not pass the state board take the test, due to the alarming rate of failing graduates from Lincoln tect and actucally recieved a warning from the state that the school may be put on suspension due the failure rate.
6. Also even if you pass the course and they do think you will pass the state test they wait forever to mail off your registration, and if a student asks to do it themself they refuse to give you, your school records.
7. Due to the untimely manner in which you are even registered to that the state test due to the school, your school loans are now trying to collect before you even take the test, and in nj if 6 months after you graduate, thats bad.
8. The teacher having no teaching experence teach from outlines and books, have no leason plans.
9. the best is how the teacher will actucally degrade the students, telling them they won't make it, and how they don't like there face, i have no idea how that related to nursing. Also teacher are suppose to encourage student not put them down.
I was really excited to start my classes for medical assisting in Lincoln tech. I started school and then realized that i made the biggest mistake ever i got suckered into 17,000 for no reason! they suck!!
and then i tried transferring to a school in St.Petersburg and then I all of a sudden owe them almost $2,000 because i didn't finish! I was making a transfer for gods sake...now I'm in more debt then i have ever been in my life! THANKS TO THAT DUMB SCHOOL!
I'll keep this short and sweet-the 1 star rating speaks for itself. I'm currently attending, 3 months from graduating and a straight A student-so I'm not complaining just because I'm bitter or incompetant and looking for a scapegoat
This school is predatory, it preys on the vulnerable-the poor, the uneducated, the desperate. I'm not ashamed to include myself in that group-I chose Lincoln tech because I was a single mom tired of working dead end jobs and wanted to pursue a career in nursing to provide a future for my daughter and make her proud. I had no knowledge about the healthcare industry so I was easily lured into this Mickey mouse farce posing as a college-that was my mistake, and I'm paying the ultimate price.
I've received almost no hands on training (unless you consider changing bed pans in a nursing home training) I have no job prospects in sight and tens of thousands of dollars in financial aid waiting for me when I graduate.
I'm not gonna throw a pity party for myself-I'm a grown woman, I should have done my research before I signed my life away on that dotted line. But I do hope that anyone who reads this will take a moment to reconsider their choice if they are even entertaining the thought of attending. Don't make the mistake I did-go for your RN through the community college sytem. It takes longer but it's a fraction of the cost and well worth it in the end!
My daughter goes to LT and is in the nursing program. I have no clue what the heck you all are talking about. Maybe all the other programs arent as good as the nurse program but the school is fine. She will be grad in June 2010.
She has worked very hard to get where she is, They have helped her with her resume and much more. She has tried to get into the college nurse programns but they all have a waiting list. She has learned so much from the teachers there and they are willing to teach. I know she will get a great job. Yes she has to pass her nclecs if thats how you say and spell it. But I know she will.
She also knows many girls that are in the college program for four yrs now and in their last yr have just now went to clinicals as she has been doing them for a yr now. Its what you take out of a program that works. Two of her clinical teachers have written her great letters to hand in with her resume.
She attends the Edsion school and yes there are some people that do cheat but she dosent and is doing great. Thank You LT for being a great school. Keep up the great work. And they also dont take crap you miss so many days you are out and thats fare.
When it comes to online learning, the teachers, advisors are knowledgeable and helpful. They are with you every step of the way. I would highly recommend the school to anyone thinking about Medical Billing. Check with your advisor as often as you can and ask what to do after you graduate. They will direct you exactly how you need to be directed in other to start you career after graduation.
