Darius Chavis - 10/10/2017
Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2011
"The degree I received from the Prism Career Institute was not sufficient for me to obtain a position with a law firm due to the curriculum Prism Careers offered. I am in debt for $26K+ dollars and cannot use the degree. All schools approached after graduating, wanted to further my education, informed me that none of the credits obtained from Prism Careers where able to be transferred and I would need to start at the beginning to obtain the needed courses for the profession. The school also offered job placement but the only position they would come up with were McDonald's, Lowes, Walmart, etc. No dedication to this process from the job placement staff. If I could sue, I would!"

"Stay away from this scam. This school just takes your money. Instructor s are incompetent. They chose whom to pass and fail these they don't like. If you have $30000 to blow tho is the place to go. Waste of time and money . Stay away from this place"

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014
"I graduated Prism back in 2014. For starters at the time for me the school was full of drama students arguing with students/teachers, and vice versa. It was hard to stay focused in that environment when someone was always disrupting the class. Fast forward to extern day well the better sites were given to the students whom the teachers showed favoritism. Even after complaining about my site they student services said they didn't have an available site, and if I took a new one I would have to start my weeks over. Smh. I completed my extern in an office that only had me pull and file charts for 4wks, nothing else. Now I'm back at student services to get help finding work which was a disaster. They were doing the same thing I was doing by putting my resume on job sites like indeed, monster, and career builder. I was unable to obtain employment so I went back to work as a certified nursing assistant. In 2016 I had made an inquiry for job recommendations, and I was told that the school changed the certification status from the NRC to NCCT. Like wtf to that. So you mean to tell me that I basically wasted 10 months of my time, fried my brain to pass these certification exams, and still have no career because the certifications I hold are not accepted by majority of the companies. Well now I know why the school changed back over to NCCT. It's a shame because I know I'm not the only one having these issues. It is now 2017 and I have still been extremely engaged in my employment search, and yet I am still unsuccessful. I get emails and phone calls from what i think is potential employment, but they only responded to say I don't hold the proper licensure. I am beyond frustrated and pissed off because I worked really hard graduated and past all my exams. Unfortunately I am still a Certified Nursing Assistant who is still about 17 grand in debt to Prism Career for a program in Medical Assistant was useless"

"I attended the AC campus and it was the worst program ever. Ms V. and Mr S.J. were amazing but unfortunately they are not the only two teaching. Please do not attend this school and waste your money they are only interested in making money you will be teaching yourself for $28,000. I wish someone could've posted this for me before I attended!."

"Prism Career Institute is the worst school to attend, I really strongly recommend that no one apply to the Cherry Hill Campus, The CEO and DON of the school look down on you like you are nothing, education wise well let's just say forget it and that you are basically teaching yourself, all the teachers act like they are scared of the DON & really jump when she say how high, they can't never seem to keep the decent teachers because of lack of respect & improper teaching skills that the schools DON requires, had I knew what I no now I would not have waisted my time on my money attending to such a horrible structured school!"

"For those who want to pursue a career in nursing. Please look into other schools other than Prism, Philadelphia. The school was horrible! I just recently graduated and feel like this school does not have the equipment to help me successfully pass the NCLEX. The Administration is horrible from the DON with purple hair Tyra down to no instructors! They are quick to request for funds but will supply you with the books and other essential tools needed days prior to the term is over????? Don't let the facade fool you, the fancy sign, doors, and computers ( 50% of them do not work). They treat us like prisoners and children. If i can do it all over again, I would have chosen some place more reputable!! Like the old saying, " Nurses ate their young" well at prism, they devour, manipulate, and shred their students to pieces! Choose wisely avoid PRISM Philadelphia"

"This school is horrible! I would not refer anyone who is serious about a career to go there. They are all about money no one in the administration cares about the students. They give you textbooks then tell the instructors not to tech from them only the lecture notes that were provided by the DON Barbara Robinson. They pass students who have truly failed by providing answers to test. The staff and school are very unorganized!! Stay away if you can avoid this school don't waste your time and $28,000."
