Arizona College - Mesa Reviews
Arizona College- Las Vegas admission department failed to tell me I needed to take an entrance exam for the BSN program even when I asked during the admission interview. When it was time for me to do my clinical rotation 2 yrs later, they told me I had to take the TEAS test ( which was booked out for 3-4 months),when I explained to them that it was booked out I was told ,"It's OK to wait as long as you tell us when you have your test date, we will work with you when it's time to start clinical rotation". When I finally had it scheduled I was told I was dropped from the program for not being an active student and now had a balance with the school due to them dropping me. When I didn't have a balance when I was cleared to start clinical rotation. I strongly recommend anybody in Las Vegas looking for a nursing school DO NOT GO HERE. I even requested my complete student records from them and they said they would let me know when it was ready for pickup, that was 3 months ago.
This school has helped me reach my dreams and get closer than ever to my dreams. The staff has all been so helpful in making the transition to Arizona very smooth. The only thing I haven't liked was that I didn't know my schedule for classes until the week of class. This created obvious chaos but I was able to manage.
The college has recently moved to Tempe which is a nice upgrade. But the college is not fully equity yet. I had labs without the proper instruments and there are no easily assesible printers or computers if needed. Professors are all great however and very helpful.
The faculty has made the enrollment process stress free and way easier than I had imagined. I wasn't pushed into any decisions I wasn't already sure about and they respected me along the entire process. Orientation was great and very friendly and thus far, my professors have been more than welcoming and a pleasure to learn from. All of my questions have always been answered and I always look forward to class, I would recommend everyone coming to this school.
I’ve done my +2 years with AZC Las Vegas campus. Throughout my journey many changes have been made which is understandable being that it was new when I enrolled. Nursing school will never be easy but it helps to have the right curriculum set and best instructors at it. Some of the instructors have been awesome while others aren’t. Price is ridiculously high, but most private schools range about the same. Overall I am passing and moving forward because nursing school is pretty much self taught :)
I liked the accelerated program. The 8 week classes make the time go by faster , the classes meet once a week and the rest you complete online. I loved that you can still work while you are attending
Considering the fact that this school is growing, they have handled things pretty well. I think with any change there's going to be challenges. The tuition is very high which nobody likes. When compared to other private schools, they are still pricey. I'm a Jr in college now, so we'll see how it all pans out.
I like the staff and professional environment of the school, Everyone is friendly and helpful. I very much admire that the program is only in seven months and i can finish soon and start my career soon instead of wasting any time. I'd like to change the size of the lab size and classrooms/ lecture halls and put them separate so theirs more room instead of everything being all together in one room.
Arizona College is a small school that has recently opened. It is located at a good location that has quick access to the freeways. The school has a variety of programs including Dental Hygiene, Registered Nurse, and Medical Assisting. Due to the school being fairly new, the class sizes are still fairly small which makes the learning that much better.
The instructors are knowledgeable and willing to help.
It's all about success. Everyone is working toward the same end goal. The instructors are there to help and will help anytime. It was a won
I loved the way they treat you as soon as you enter there campus. It is a very friendly and comfortable environment and they are always willing to help out with anything you have problems with; for example I was having a very hard time trying to figure out how I was going to pay everything off and they were open to give me advices and an opportunity to pay it all off while I was still in school. I am pretty excited and if everything turns out good and how I planned it I will be attending Arizona College in the next few months.
You get hands on training with your instructor and and there is open labs after school.
I feel that many of the students I was with were not ready for a professional career path as many of them seemed to be stuck in high school. Some students were great and easy to get along with in the classroom setting. Others, I just didn't like being in class with whatsoever because of the lack of professionalism.
Though the campus is small, it is very well set for the students needs. The labs are clean and organized, the break room is always clean, and the student center is always available.
Financial aid was extremely helpful. We sat down and they broke down the cost of tuition completely. They even helped me with my FAFSA on spot and gave me the cost of loans left over. I knew when I would have to begin payment, who I would be paying it to, and was even given some scholarship sites to help pay off my loans.
Almost everything at my school and been very simple to keep up with. The only negative comment I have is the consistency in staff. While I was there there was constantly new teachers being brought in which did bring confusion as to where we were in the courses and lecture.
