I am attempting to get information on a couple of the private programs in the area. They are all much more expensive than the CC's, but without waiting lists, they seem a bit more appealing to me!! There is a ton on here about EBSN, and a little about Apollo, but not too much about Pima.
I hear their NCLEX pass rates are really high, and taht impresses me!! I was wondering how difficult the classes are, if you really have NO TIME to do anything else, what the teachers are like, clinicals, schedules. Do you like the program... is it everything they promised, and is it REALLY *that* hard to get in??? Do the classes seem to work together, or does everyone have an "I am in it for me" attitude??
I went to PIMA Medical Institute for two of their programs. I did a 35 week Medical Assistant Program with training in front and back office. I also did the CNA there as well. For the two classes I took there , I loved the program as well as the instructors. But there is an awesome school who has a 10 month LPN Program and you come out of it IV Certified. There is no wait list and the only main pre-reqs they require is to be CPR certified, CNA, and proof of Compass Exam which is your entrance exams to a community college. You go to school from Monday through friday from 3:30pm-6:30pm and when there are Clinicals they are Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30pm-9:30pm. I dont know if this helps you any.
