Provo College Reviews
This program is great. MOST of the teachers are really caring, and actually want to help you succeed. The head of the nursing program is very sweet, and she really loves nursing. A couple of the teachers are just rude and obviously don't really like the students, at least in my cohort. The financial aid is amazing, I got my entire degree for free, basically.
Good school. I think the teachers here really care a lot about students and the nursing profession. I was worried because they were not accredited when I started but they are accredited through CCNE as of yesterday. I was going to review earlier but wanted to wait for the decisions of the accreditation.
I liked the 1st sem. P.C is too expensive.. With massage you either work for yourself/or rent out a room, or get commission only.. wish they would really tell you & take you to places to ask questions.. Do your research go to places you'll work before signing up.. They are pushy to get you to start..
Provo College is the worst decision I have made in life. The recruiter is Manipulative. If you make a choice she doesn't agree with, she will try to push and convince you until she gets what she wants. They will take advantage of you. I could have studied on my own, and gotten my certification. I wasted my time, and money I don't have. Now I will spend my life paying off loans that didn't do anything for me.
This was the worst school I have ever attended. I have never felt like I have been so manipulated in my life. They honestly are out for all your money and screw your tutition up so they can get more. I have been paying back my student loans on time that I took out, and now that school says I owe them 6000 dollars. It pisses me off. I know I don't owe them anything. They gave me a crap education with people who don't care where you end up. They want to screw you over and ruin your life so they can get money. I would not recommend this to anyone. You have better luck teaching yourself how to do the job or skill you want than ruining you life and not learning anything here.
Upon meeting with the recruiter, when researching colleges and courses, I was promised that due to my being a single parent (amongst other variables) my entire education would be covered by the various grants I'd qualify for. I was assured that this would all be taken care of for me. This Is how I was convinced to attend this college. Three quarters of the way through the college year (program was only one year long) I started receiving bills in the mail. I went to the dean of the college and asked him about this woman, apparently she was no longer working there. I asked the Dean if I could sell my jewelry in the bookstore to try to raise some money, he couldn't believe that she had promised what she did. Of course the jewelry didn't bring in much income. In all my student loans rose to approximately $15,000. More than 10 times the amount I had accrued in 2 years (off & on) UVU. Within a month of graduating I found out that there was no need to go to school for this program (pharm tech) & I could be trained in any pharmacy for that job- for free. The recruiter did end up coming back to that college and is employed there still I believe. I believe this was fraudulent and deceitful and that I have a case. And thankfully so does the attorney I have been communicating with.
Provo College's recruiters will tell you anything to get you to enroll. They told my wife and I that they had a 96% job placement in our selected field of Pharmacy Technician and we would easily get jobs when we were finished and make $15-$17 per hour.
We both got GPAs of 3.87 and 3.94 and passed the best certification the PTCB. The fact is there are absolutely no jobs within 80 miles of where we live. The market is rediculously saturated. The pharmacies have been on a hiring freeze for over 8 months. The only pharmacy hiring is IHC and they're only hiring people with IV admixture and compounding experience.
Provo College will lie straight to your face and paint a rosey picture when it's actually an extremely grim job outlook. They be happy to take your $17,000-$23,000 and you'll end up with no job in your field of Pharmacy Technician.
