Sorry to hear about your experience at NEW HORIZONS. I reread my post and meant to say that "the admission coordinator DIDN'T seem prepared at NEW HORIZONS." Elite is more expensive, but they are running a discount special for this month. I went to ELITE and i asked the coordinator if they offered night PCT classes and she told me "yes" and it was for Monday-Wednesday. She also told me the CNA was offered at night and that the classes run Mon-Wed. She also told me that whatever class schedule you take, that is the time your clinicals would start. I was a little hesitant because i have never heard of night clinicals...weekend yes....night clinicals...no. SO i asked her about three times to make sure. I work a full and part time job and i would be giving up my part time gig just to attend school. Well they called me this past week and she must have forgotten what she told me because she said the CNA part of the CNA/PCT combo was Mon-THURS 6-10 (not Mon-WED). she also told me that the PCT part was days only Mon-THURS.
I told her i couldn't go to school during the day because of my full time job. She told me to jump on the special and they would work out the PCT program for the night shift...she said they were trying to start a night PCT and that after i get my CNA done...there would probably be a lag because it takes time to get night classes filled
I told her i would think about it. I do not doubt this school is great at what they do...BUT..you gotta keep your facts straight. I didn't know that they do not offer the EKG certification.
I have been to numerous medical training facilities and none have tickled my fancy as of yet. I don't expect them to roll out the red carpet...but give me some kind of warm welcome...i assume they have such a high influx of people from the economy...so my little money wouldn't make or break them. I am trying to do my homework. I am going to try Norcross Institute of Allied Health and Metro Medical Training (which is in Smyrna, a little far...but they offer great specials and they have a schedule that fits me...we will see). I think a lot of these medical training places are popping up to make a buck off the desperate people in these trying times. The highest that i have seen was $3500 for the PCT
simple ridiculous....and you had to complete the CNA which was about $550. Sorry to ramble on...good luck to you!
