This school costs way to much and gives way to little! I graduated from the Pharmacy tecnician program and let me tell you the teaching was deplorable!! After I graduated I couldn't even get a job in a hospital like I wanted. What they dont tell you in placement is that if you are not placed in a hospital for your externship GOOD LUCK trying to get your foot in the door! I learned this the hard way after hitting a few job fairs and was told point blank that unless I externed or knew someone in the hospital field getting in was slim to none. Needless to say I worked retail which I am not complaining it gave me hands on experience and a noth on my resume. Dont waste your money. Go to a community college where the instructors are real teachers and it wont break your bank!

check out friendofthestudent.wordpress.com before you decide to attend this school. it will show you all the things they do to take your money as a FOR-PROFIT school. the money will go to things like buying the OC Fairgrounds and huge bonuses for the suits in costa mesa.

Attending the Los Angeles campus for the Vocational Nurse program and its really really bad. They change teachers every few weeks, the teachers are sketchy, and everybody is incredibly rude and patronizing. They treat the students like a piece of trash. ALLAN POURAVANES is the direcor of the program and tells us students if you don't like the fact that you dont have teachers, too bad...just study on your own and you'll be fine. WE DIDN'T PAY $30,000 TO TEACH OURSELVES. This place is not professional at all. I hope they get their accreditation taken way and maybe they will because their NCLEX passing scores are very low.

I am a student of the LVN program (Anaheim) and am so frustrated by this school already! The school is only worried about their own reputation and the ability to recruit more students, not education! If you learn from your mistakes you WILL NOT learn here. After taking a test you will not be able to see your test questions again for fear of future students cheating and in turn a lower percentage of first time pass rate on the state licensing board (this % is used for advertisement).
My recommendation: take your $31,500 elsewhere. I wish I could!!!

I currently attend the VN course at the Los Angeles campus. It's horrible!! the school is unorganized, the staff (not teachers) are rude and try to be-little you and treat you like a grade school student. They have convalescent home as your site for terms that should not be there (only term one should be there and they have term 3 in there). and its way!!!! too expensive. I don't know what I was thinking. But I'm here to warn you now. Do your research and don't believe all the promises the "counselors" tell you when they're trying to sell you the program. I hope this helps... Good Luck.
