At first I was skeptical, but I really enjoy going. It's a great learning environment. I'm still going to to a state university, but it def is worth the time and money. As long as you do well on labs, tests, and study! I have nothing bad to say bout it!
I attended there in the Medical Coding and Insurance program. I had a great time the first couple of months and felt good I would land a terrific job to support me and my kids. After the third month or so it seemed like the classes were repeating themselves, and the Coding part of the program is a joke!!!!!
They don't teach you but about 4 weeks of coding, and the instructors drop like flies in that department and they don't even know how to code!!! And everyone passes, the instructors make sure.. don't miss a day they will call you 30 minutes after class starts to find out why!! I only missed one day in 9 months and they were having a cow!!!They only want your money!!I can't get a job because I don't have 2 yrs. experience in medical billing. And the part that makes it worse I owe them $100.00 a month and in a few more months I have student loans coming due at another 150.00 monthly and I can't get a job. A lot of businesses turn you away when they see Remington on your resume!!! Students that graduated before got jobs and showed they were clueless and ruined it for everyone!! Go get a job in a medical office as the receptionist and you will get one faster than going to remington. Even insurance giants around here, hire you if you have delt with claims in automobiles, you don't need Remington, they don't even prepare you for the test you have to take after you graduate to be certified in this program. They give you a book and tell you to study this at home while you are waiting to take the test!! I can't even get my Diploma from them because I can't pay my $100 I owe them because I can't get a job!!!! Take anatomy class and medical terminolgy classes and then you will be elgible for the state exam test, without paying Remington $14,000.00 for the course!! Thanks for the debt and for selling me a DREAM, that won't come true!!!
Oh and by the way I have been to college have an associates in teaching and I have stable work history, not the reason I can't get a job.... in this field...It's cause Remington is on my RESUME, and they don't help you get a job, they email you jobs they see online, and they call that career services!!! I know over 25 people who recently graduated and they are either unemployed or they are working jobs that don't even relate to the program they went through at Remington!! Stay Away unless you already have 2 yrs in medical records or have 2 yrs working in a clinic or hospital!!!!
Remington college is a fully accredited institution meaning it is a authentic and competitive college.
I've been enrolled into the Computer Networking administration program and i've already been able to use the skills i learned in the real world.
The great benefits about the program are the certifications which can carry as much weight as a bachelors degree when combined with your Associates degree. just look at career builder and see how many employers REQUIRE these certifications. not to mention remington college offers these for FREE. (for the first time if you fail its then out of pocket for a retest)
MY teachers are very helpful and are very knowledgeable in their career fields. as they are currently working and carry several certifications themselves, they teach you what you need to know and what you dont, they answer questions clearly and spend time with you on things you find difficult.
Remington college offers many benefits over state universities and these people calling it a rip off dont know what they are talking about. in CNA people are getting hired into the computer networking and Desktop support field by their 4th term. thats only a fraction of the way towards completing the program.
The classrooms tend to be cold...thats my only complaint. well worth every penny for those of you who are concerned about your education and arent slackers and quitters.
The first day I visited the school I new this is were i am going to take my BSN. I already finished my first quarter. I can say I learned to like the Nursing Profession. I have many family membere that are RN. They love what they do. Nursing has many opportunities. I can not wait to finish an start my ne carreer as a Nurse.Remington College is new but do not regreat being part of the pioneer class. Not many people have the opportunity class 01-10 has.
Remington College has been around for awhile but it was mainly a technical education type school and not a true academic institution such as a state university. In January they recently started an accelerated bachelors of science in nursing program. To enter the program you must have a bachelors degree in any area and then complete the prerequisites for the nursing program before you can apply. The program is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing and is in the process of getting accreditation from CCNE, one of the two accreditation bodies for nursing programs. The faculty there are very experienced nursing educators.
This is an accelerated program so it is very compressed. So far I think that it is very good. It is amazing how much I have learned.
So, I've seen that there are a few bad reviews in regards to this school. I don't know much about may of their programs, but I'm currently in their inaugural accelerated BSN program. I actually just finished my last final this morning and my last clinical for the quarter is tomorrow. Like I said I don't know anything about the school as a whole, but I will say that when you watch the open house video it does state that your credits may not be transferable to another school (So, that shouldn't be a surprise).For the RN program, we are required to already have a Bachelor's degree in another field and we are eligible to take the NCLEX after successfully graduating. Accreditation for the program should be happening in a year or so after my class finishes, however either way, having a different bachelor's degree and being a licensed RN will give us the availability to go to Master's program if we wish.
The program is a lot of work and a lot of information considering it is technically a two year program rolled into one year, but I think it is definitely worth it. Our professors are very knowledgeable and always willing to help us. It is expensive, but worth it if you are serious about putting the time and effort to succeed.
The coursework was definitely more challenging than I expected! I did have a good relationship with my professors. They were genuinely helpful and motivating.
I think my overall experience was excellent. I was able to obtain a very rewarding job within two months of graduation. I was also more than prepared to meet the demand of my new career.
