"I guess I should say this is only my opinion and use the word alegedly so Prism don't sue me for this!! The school director was a lawyer but was told that he lost his law license!! And another old teacher lost his doctors license to! and they are both still there working!! I just passed the NCLEX today and that got me thinking of Prism. Prism was of minimal help and a huge waste of money. IF YOUR THINKING ABOUT GOING TO SCHOOL THERE READ THIS FIRST. I believe I'm a fair person and honest. The admission department will tell you how great the school is and thr school director and nursing director treat you so nice until they have you as a student thats when the real side is seen. I'm not going to name names b/c if your not a student there, it don't matter but I had only 2 really great teachers and of those only 1 is still working there because he cares about his students and is honest and real and knows alot. One other good teacher resignated. He told me he was tired of there was no organisation and even if your 0.1 point away and work extra hard, the director won't allow your teacher to pass you b/c they get more money if u repeat a class. 1 teacher they had was a psycho b/c he was in the marines or army and must of gone nuts. I found out he was fired on x-mas eve! Nice thing to do isn't it? But a older man who is STILL there teaching fondled student breasts when doing ekg's. This is public knowlege and is on the internet just google Dr R Prism Cherry Hill and read it your self! He even lost his doctor license and was charged with weapons charges to!! Enough said. You want to be around people like that in a unorganized over priced school?? Better to go to community college and get in to a pre-RN program. You will save money. LPN's don't do much anymore. On my clinical Prism had me passing out food trays each day and 90% junk stuff. Your best off studying by your self! I did NOT pass the NCLEX b/c of Prism. I past b/c I studied my ass off on my own. They did not help much finding me a job. Alls they did was look online like on monster and carreer builder. I could of done that!! So like I said, they lie to you, rip you off, have a SEX CRIMINAL teaching and there clinical sights waste your time IF they find you one. Go to school to be a RN instead"

"I have recommended quite a few people to this school. I would say this school has helped me a lot. When I first started it was doing great. Graduation and pass rates were glorious. Now they are strictly about numbers and money and kicking people out. Honestly no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. There is no leeway for the students and they believe all the instructors even though they are one step up from ghetto. This school is entirely too much money for little effort they put in. They have you travel great distances for shitty places. Your instructors are allowed to treat you like ur worth nothing and the employees at the campus are also trashy. With incidents of clear cut lying. Providing evidence to them is not an option. They do not want to hear it or see it and just believe an instructor that is clearly lying. They throw people out like its no body's business. They believe that they should treat you like dirt and your family is worthless. SO please if you attend this school just be careful. They may pick on u but just keep your mouth shut or they will throw u to the curb. And yes I did graduate. But I am ashamed I ever went to this school. If I had to strictly pay the school back rather then the government. Hahahah I wouldn't they don't deserve anything and I cant wait till the complaints start being processed. Its going to be great watching that school crumble for their fraud and misleadings and mistreatment."
