College of Health Care Professions - San Antonio Reviews
I am enrolled in the Surgical Technologist program, it is a two year program so I will be graduating with an Associates Degree. Most of my classes are ground classes but I also have some online classes as well. I really like CHCP because they have a very welcoming atmosphere and the classroom size is descent so you're able to communicate with the professors without any issues. My favorite thing about this school is that in the lunch room they sell almost anything you can think of including snacks, food, beverages , ect. Which makes it very convenient and you dont have to leave campus to grab lunch. The professors and students are very polite and they really do their best to help you succeed. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. The only thing I wish would change would be having a bigger parking lot, because it can get full.
They seem to have a difficult time finding externships that will take us students.
Students and Instructors are awesome.
I think it's only harder for me because I'm going back to school as an adult. So I don't have as much as a flexible schedule as someone who may have just graduated high school.
We do all hands on and in classroom...no online courses
Again they seem to have issues connecting with students.
The instructors are very smart and helpful. They make going back to night school as and adult an enjoyable and a better learning experience than sitting on a computer at home.
I actually have been enjoying going back to school. My instructors have been very helpful and are very intelligent and well informed. They work with you and want to make sure you are learning the best possible way to absorb everything to use towards your profession. They really to do care about having you be the best at what you want to succeed at. I have met a lot of great people, not only staff, but other students as well. I have made a few friendships that I see continuing on even after school has ended. It was even better for me since I'm new to the state of Texas and I had never been to San Antonio before, and I did not know anyone. And now I not only have made to bonds, but also with people who share in my passion for Physical Therapy as well. The only downside was the actual introduction process. When I came to visit before enrolling, I was seriously misinformed about the program itself. I was told it was a PTA program, not PTT. I was looking to earn my licensure. Then there were little things that continued to pop up from admissions after the days expired of being able to remove yourself from the program without penalty of continuing to pay. I was not the only one, and I know a few people dropped out or switched schools....there were nights where students got all upset and multiple times the head instructor would come into our class to reiterate the same facts one time, then it would change another. Then to find out that it was a completely new program. I understand there will be bugs starting anything up...but the honesty beforehand would have been appreciated more than a veil of what I thought it was. Because now I'm hoping that CHCP gets their accreditation so I can continue on and transfer my credits to an actual PTA program without having to re do another 2 years for my associates. And I have to come up with more money to do the actual program I wanted to do in the first place.
There isn't a gym or athletic center at the school i'm attending. But they do have a rather small library but very helpful because it is only for the courses offered.
My school shows everybody's success. It has very helpful resources posted throughout the lounge of the school. Which is updated often. Tutoring is also offered and they work with your schedule, even the school president will tutor. I Love how the everybody is treated and they want you to succeed.
When I first went to apply and found out how much tuition was going to be I was astonished. I thought to myself is $35,000 really worth it? My admissions adviser and financial aid adviser were rooting for me and explaining that it will all pay in the end. I have two kids and I work full time. So I was thinking about my kids and the thought of living day to day was just getting old. My financial aid adviser was very to the point and explained everything very thorough. All I had to do was apply for fafsa and she did the rest from there.
Getting no financial aid and depending on my parents is not that easy. I sometimes feel bad I am not able to help them paying over five-hundred dollars a month. All they ask me is to do my best focus on school and not to worry about anything else. But still who really not gonna worry my dad being the only one that works in the house its not easy.
Most of the time the labs are more hands on. The library has lots of computers and also the classrooms. At a god speed too.
I actually go to the one in Fort Worth but it wasn't on the list. The school doesn't just help you on what ever career your going in, they have a program where they teach you how to study and how to be professional to be able to get a job in that field.
Campus is very small but very nice and clean. Class room are small allowing more one on one with the teacher. Resting area is quite well good place to talk to friends and have a good lunch.
