I've heard that success with ACC really depends on what program you're enrolled in so I can't really vouch for everything, but there are good things to say about the VPN program. It's a challenging course, but the professors are helpful and it should help anyone moving on to a career in nursing or medical assisting.

I am actually a recent graduate of ACC so I can comment on the entire experience. I am an adult in my late 30's who lost her job of 20 years. Since I had always wanted to be a nurse I figured i'd take the 1 year LVN course (actually turns out to be closer to 1-1/2 - 2 years by licensing time) and after graduation i'd work while attending RN school. Unfortunately things did not work out that way. During the training if you could get past the staff lecturing the half of the class (whose mommy's are paying for their education) for being absent, late or forgetting to take out their facial piercing AGAIN you will learn alot. However most of it is what you study on your own time and teach yourself. (I know I would have never signed up to pay 32,000 to teach myself) The clinical sites are ok if you get a good instructor. (kind of a gamble) The after grad training is great and she tells you when it is time to take NCLEX. I took it and passed it on the first try HOWEVER what we were not told was that the hospitals WILL NOT HIRE NURSES WITH OUT 1 YEAR PAID EXPERIENCE!!!! The counselors push their job placement in the beginning (1 of main reasons I came here) What they do is to sit on the internet and email us the job offers they we are finding all by ourselves on the net. They will not even return our calls or emails. I say DO NOT WASTE $32,000!!! I am not slamming this school since all private nursing schools are the same. Just be prepared!! I APPARENTLY WAS NOT!!!! :(

Only in the first term at ACC as an LVN and today we found out that an average so far have failed our test before the mid-term. That is bad.....We studied for all of the objectives and none were on the test......The test was all critical thinking and we haven't even started clinicals yet......I feel like it's a waste of my time and I've been a straight A student my whole life....I don't get it....66 students and an average of 65% are failing.....They are here for the money....$30,000 for each student....Uhhhh ...that's over a million dollars adding up just from one LVN class...
We get a sub...the director of the campus...Mrs. Delegrosa...She puts her hand in our faces when we have a question....They're suppose to help but they don't have an answer....Our teacher doesn't write the test....she does, so how do we know what to ask our teachers

First of all I would like to say the Director of Nursing at American Career College is a piece of work. First of all my brother went to that school and was enrolled in the VN program, he graduated finally barely escaping the racist wrath of this Director of Nursing. I, myself, am a nurse and just hearing about the horror stories makes me want to hurl. Anyway, My brother was called by this horrendous racist B***** (pardon my french), one day to discuss issues regarding his "performance" as a student. this SOB had the nerve to tell my brother "do you want me to say it tagalog? so you can understand better?" WOW. and the worst part about it, MANAGEMENT did NOTHING to fix the situation. I believe that this is the worst nursing school anyone could ever go to. If anyone ever reads this, just remember this: Do Not Throw or Waste your precious hard earned money away by going to this stupid school. You will get treated unfairly, you will not get the proper education, and you will have to deal with the FAT, DUMB, STUPID, SON OF A WITCH... ANISSA PEREZ.

OK so i went to acc Ontario for surgical technology and i hated my experience when my cohart started we had one director and then two weeks end she was gone. after that we had a fill in and he was alright but then our permanent director came and everything went south.. the teachers that cared were let go for the directors friend to come in and men with little man complex to insult and be-little students when u told someone they said to change my attitude with the teacher. then career services didnt really help they just wanna know when u get a job and then for u to give them all the information so that they can take credit for finding u a job. its not worth paying 32000 for all the drama and hassle u go through with them. i was offered a job at the clinical site i was at which was 2 hours away from my home, when the director found out i was pulled from the site and lost the opportunity to work for the site i was familiar with. overall bad experience with ACC Ontario
