"I'm at the end of my 1st term. If I could change schools I would. So very disappointed in this school. It has potential, but it seems like the Admins do not care about the students. My GPA doesn't reflect correctly. Trying to email a admin or the DON is useless they don't get back to you. One of my classes has a 99% failure rate and they blame it on the students. NO ITS THE TEACHER! Shes hostile and unbalanced. Despite many emails and phone calls about said teacher from many students, it gets ignored. When a teacher posts on social media that she's actually screwing her students on purpose, then there is a problem. Does the school act on it? NO. Its sad when you're trying to learn and further your career, only to be stressed out and not enjoying your experience. Im embarrassed to even tell people I go to this school. So unprofessional. This school needs to be investigated. If need be, I'll pull all my resources to make sure it is."

"Do not go to this school! The teachers do not care and neither did the DON at the time. There are people who graduated with me and are JUST now passing NCLEX 4 years after the fact. No one of us were prepared. Such a waste of time and money. You’re better off going to a community school. I’m warning you.. do not waste your time or money! Also.. they would not release to my new school a UNOFFICIAL transcript and when my new schools admissions rep called and said legally they have to, they sent it. Oh btw.. nothing transferred either, so don’t expect to finish and transfer credits. It won’t work!"

Future nurse - 4/2/2019
Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2020
"Ok, so Im writing as a current student at Prism enrolled in the night program in cherry hill, Im giving my opinion about the night class. I will graduate in 2020. If youre looking for quality education, this is not the school for you. They will literally let anybody off the street into this school. Majority of student are obnoxious, very entitled and its made clear, not serious about the program. Which makes it hard for those who want the education The instructors, out of the 5 teachers I have this term... only 2 teach. The others just give you busy work... so its a lot of self teaching. Its very frustrating. Im trying to stay positive and keep going because I really want to become a nurse, but this school is a joke. Please stay away and go to a community college. Youll thank yourself in the long run Ill review this school again maybe towards the end of my experience...as of now this school gets a negative 1"

2019 LPN Graduate - 2/11/2019
Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2019
"Most bad ratings at Prism come from young, undisciplined students. The course material can be very tough and requires studying daily. Many think because the school is an institute the curriculum will be a 15 month cake-walk. It's not. The instructors have vast backgrounds from diploma nurses to nurse practitioner. This blend of experiences is essential to learning when entering the practical nursing career field. While there are a few areas that can improve at Prism, the overall experience and preparation for the NCLEX is definately worth it."

This is not write! - 8/6/2018
Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2017
"Worst experience of my life. I was enrolled taking classes then I was told by office I wasn't able to do my clinicals because I didn't have the step shot which I should have had from the beginning before they even let me in but with them being inconsiderate I owe school money I failed school and the the rich keep being the rich and the poor keep being the poor. The main reason I failed is cause one of the teachers had a brain aneurysm while she shouldn't not have been teaching."

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2016
""After working as a Medical Technician for the past ten years I decided to enroll in Prism LPN program. It was hard in the beginning because Ive been out of school for a long time. I worked full-time while attending school three nights a week and every Saturday. I did very well in the program with self-motivation, determination along with the help of my Instructors, I graduated in March 26, 2016 and passed my NCLEX April 15, 2016 on the first attempt. For me Prism Career Institute was a good choice. The school did a good job preparing me for the field and my Clinical experience gave me the confidence I needed to succeed."
