Current evening Practical Nursing student in my last term at Moorestown. I hear a lot of complaints, and I would have to disagree. Instructors are nice and educated. You do have to put the effort in and study, its a hard program. Other then that, Im completely satisfied with my education I received so far, and can't wait to take my NCLEX. One of the best organized Technical school around.
DO NOT waste your time and just as important do not WASTE your money!!!! The instructors and staff at the Lincoln Technical School in the Edison campus do NOT care. I asked for tutoring in my 3rd quarter and the instructor told me she does not have time. Although, there are signs posted everywhere about if you need tutoring ask!! She never taught, but read directly from the book, and showed slides of what the book in front of me says. If everyone got a question wrong she is suppose to go over the entire test and give points back, but never did. Also, tested us on chapters she did not read or go over. She was more interested in leaving early. Another instructor only read out of one book, although we had two books! She expected people to know 6 chapters entirely for the test but only concentrated the test on one chapter, and could not understand why students did not pass. Administration and financial aid is a complete JOKE!! The clinical rotation was a joke too!! We did more 1st quarter work, making beds, cleaning the patients in the very stinky nursing homes! Never saw the person who enrolled me in this school after signing up, financial aid took 2 weeks to get back to me, (almost missed the orientation) that should have been my first hint.! I did not pass 3rd quarter and was told I had to sit out for 6 months and study, then I could restart. BUT, they fail to inform that you will be withdrawn from the program, and student loans will start knocking at your door. (You must contact your financial institution and tell them you did not withdraw...VERY IMPORTANT!!! I learned that on my own.)There are NO supplies, there is NO tutoring, there is NO help from this school at all. Only the students who complain directly, multiple times a day to the Dean of nursing will pass. DO NOT TRUST THIS SCHOOL, DO NOT TRUST THE INSTRUCTORS, DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL AT ALL!!!!!!! GO TO A REAL SCHOOL AND GET A DEGREE!! LESSON LEARNED
Iam currently attending the Paramus campus and let me tell you , THE WORST , the teacher literally admitted to the student if she/he does not like you they will fail you out of spite , I was also told if work is being due 2 days later & you choose one of the 2 days to be absent for personal reasons they will purposely change the due date of the work to the date you are absent so you can get a 0 , also Iam attending night class and was told that every class during the night class are able to do their work at home & school also but my class , the class Iam currently in is not able to do any work at home . They also recently hired a new professor let me tell you , she's the worst she favors students and if your not in her favor be ready to retake the class ! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYBODY!
Ok so I went in to the Maryland Columbus campus in 2010 and if it's one thing the only decent instructor taught me, "its that your education will only come in handy if you seek it" but in other words this school is not for you then and I am certain it still holds that rep. If you are in get out now if you're stuck don't expect financial aid to help you or their joke of a job fair. I only got to see one offer out of my 2 years of dealing with school and even if you do get through it all you are better off not even putting it on your resume, trust me you will be the laughing stock of the trade you chose and I mean that literally save your money ask around and try to fill a helper roll even if it's only min. Hourly it's much cheaper and worth more than going to this joke.
Worst school possible. The teachers are spiteful and talk about how to be professional when they themselves are not. They do not plan ahead when it comes to emergencies so you will be sitting in the classroom for 3 hours doing absolutely nothing. If you leave they will do some 100 point quiz just in spite of you then will proceed to call you unprofessional. Please save your money and your time and don't bother coming to this school. Money is all they care about and they could care less if you pass or fail. The schools financial aid department is horrifying. The school is disgusting and moldy. If you do decide to come here I'm going to tell you right now. I TOLD YOU SO. Good luck. I hope you hear my warning.
Going here was the worst decision I ever made. The school does not offer the information you need to actually work in the field nor do they do it at a reasonable price for students. On top of all of that you get hounded relentlessly to make sure that you're paying your bill on time every time and make sure that you never have any problems. I broke my hand shortly after graduating I was unable to work for over a year and in between my workman's comp and unemployment payments there was a gap I explained this to Lincoln Technical Institute and they told me that I was still going to be considered delinquent and even though I've made payments on time every month since then they still continue to send past-due notices every single month. My suggestion to anyone looking into the school is to completely disregard this school and go with UTI you may spend more money but your education is a lot better than what you would receive at Lincoln Tech and the people dealing with that company are much more professional. I just spoke with someone from Lincoln Tech and the persons treated me like I was worthless.
I do not recommend this school to anyone. Why? Because they care more about payments than your education. I was receiving a lot of hype from the staff and my "Mentor" (By the way he somehow vanished when I began classes). Filled not only my ears but my parents ears with lies, very sad. This school will only dig you a deep whole and the craziest part is that they know their digging you that whole.
I am writing this letter to address all the broken promises that the administration of Lincoln Tech gave me before I began my education there. They promised me a professional environment for me to learn and train as an HVAC technician. However, just a few days into my first class I felt like I was back in Middle School. Even though all the classroom rules and regulations were explained before class began none of them were enforced. Fellow students would routinely show up with their shirts untucked, wearing improper attire, they would play music and talk loudly during class, and generally be disruptive and childish throughout the day. Despite this, no real punishment would be levied upon them. The instructor either wouldn’t or couldn’t do anything about it. Wouldn’t because he/she just doesn’t care or couldn’t because the administration of Lincoln Tech bends over backwards to accommodate these disruptive students. It’s believed that the administration caters to them in order to keep them paying the tuition and thus make more money. If I tried to tell another student to be quiet, I would receive the middle finger, or a childish remark, or get whined and complained at. Everybody here is supposed to be adults but they act like children. I was promised that I would work with fully functioning equipment to learn how they are supposed to work and understand what systems I will be dealing with in the field. At best only half of the equipment was not broken, faulty, or just busted. At worst none of it was functioning as it should. In one class the equipment was patched up with cardboard and scotch tape. A few other students and I asked if we could repair the equipment but the instructor refused our request. With all the instructors Lincoln has on hand and with the amount of money we are paying for tuition it’s rather baffling how so much of the equipment is still in disrepair. Asking us to work like that is like asking a chef to practice cooking without a working stove. I was promised an on the job-type of experience, simulating actual employment. Instead I have to put up with lazy, uncaring, noisy, and immature classmates who by all rights, and by the actual policies and regulations set forth by the school, should have been kicked out before they finished half of the course. I was told that in the later months of my training only the students who really cared and were serious about their studies would be left. To my displeasure the lazy students are allowed make up any test or assignment that they missed even if they had no excuse for being late or missing school. They receive no real punishment for disorderly conduct. The administration seems to be only concerned with tuition money at the expense of their integrity as a school. I have asked to see someone from the administration about my complaints during a midcourse survey but have heard nothing from them. Every day that I have had to put up with unruly students has made me feel that my education has suffered as a result. I have to wait for the lazy students to catch up on class assignments that take me 30 minutes to complete but take them two hours because they sleep in class, or goof off. I can’t get back completed tests and quizzes right away because I have to wait for them to make it up. I believe that my training would have been smoother and faster if the administration of Lincoln Tech kept all the promises they made before we signed that first check. I chose Lincoln Tech because I thought that they have a good reputation and that I would have a better chance of entering a career in HVAC with the credentials that Lincoln offered. I understand if the economy makes it difficult for the school at this time, but I can’t understand why the atmosphere in the classes is so unruly even with some professors that are really quite good and care about teaching.
I am currently enrolled in welding for the 2015 2016 year I've been here three months and we have currently ran out of material for time I would not recommend going to the school for welding or anything The school is a complete joke They take you into the admissions office when you ask about the reviews online and they bring in a fake student and he tells you they are old fake reviews the schools 100 times better it is a complete lie you're not waste your time or your money at the school if you're going for a while then go to Wyota in Florida I will be transferring there within a month The School is a total joke
Let me say.. They are a scam! I went in on Thursday.. They told me I could attend 1 week free and set me up a financial aid appt. the following Friday, I played along thinking everything was good. Went to class on Monday. Do my apt Friday. They tell me I will have to pay $800 a month out of pocket. So I declined it! I left thinking everything would be ok.. In May 2015... January 2016 comes around and my credit gets dinged for a loan I never pulled out. Mind u it's $1400 dollars... So unless u want to pay $1400 dollars for one week of school... Go for it! DO NOT fall for what I did and start school before knowing what your financial aid status is! They pulled my credit in September and November without me knowing. I'm in the process of figuring out if there is a way i can fix it. I doubt it since they hit me with a LOAN and not a collection account. I still don't know how they processed this "loan"
