ATTENTION! MUST READ!
There is a new nursing school/program that just has gotten some well deserved negative media attention in Detroit. The name of the school is CAHP Healthcare Preparation. They claim to give people the training and skills needed to be a nurse yet they are not accredited by the state of Michigan. On their website they don't call themselves a school but a "training course or a tutorial program". I know that the waiting list is long to get the training needed to be a nurse but, do not buy into this scam! They will take $6,000 of your hard earned money and give you the promises of a nursing career. But, they will not be able to deliver. Below is a link to the article. I highly doubt that this is the last we will hear from them.

A similar thing happened to me 6 years ago when I was looking for CNA classes and this school called "Tech Com" 20 mins from me had affordable classes, so I went to look at the school, which was in this building with other businesses in a busy part of the city, and I was younger and naive then. I couldnt find the place and the security had no clue what I was talking about until one of their supervisors said "go to the second floor, they are Xintra now". I wish I walked out then, cuz I later found out they had a history of moving around, and multiple name changes because 4 people sued them cuz they took their money and ran. Like I said I was younger then, and I paid on my credit card (and I was able to get conditional credit when I told my credit card what happened), and I and a few others including the instructor showed up and we only had one class. Even the instructor got screwed out being paid! Also the Attorney General got involved and the media.
