Carrington College - Tucson Reviews
I have had a wonderful experience with Carrington College. Admissions has been very flexible with my schedule and needs, and has helped me to pursue my passion. The team at Carrington has walked me through each step, and thoroughly answered all my questions and concerns. I will be attending the Vet Assisting program in July, and I look forward to attending!
They are all sweet until you start your first class. After that class starts, those same people will ignore you or give you attitude. You pay 50k for an associates degree for nursing, but only 2 of the professors know how to teach. The other "teachers" act as if they paid for your tuition. They may be good as nurses, but should not be teaching. They get irritable if they don't know the answers to the questions and act as if they are doing you a favor by doing what they are hired to do. They are unprofessional, moody, demanding and act as if we are all liars who are not allowed to get sick as if COVID isn't around or as if they never got sick in their life. For 50k I expected quality education, not this circus. This school really needs to hire actual teachers with experience not nurses who think they can teach with no experience in teaching. This is not a cheap school to be testing us like this.
The staff at Carrington College are all very sweet and helpful. They give you the impression they want you to succeed in life and become someone beneficial to society. I feel like the environment is about being your "friend" more so then being the educator. It kind of feels like elementary school at times, and make me wonder if the instructors are what they say they are there to do and if they are actually truly wanting for success.
