Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts Reviews
What I enjoyed about Gurnick was the strict rules I had to adhere to to ensure that I was getting the most out of my education and my money. After researching different Psychiatric Technician programs, Gurnick had offered me the opportunity as other schools had either a waiting list or a lottery process. Although the program is very expensive compared to going to a junior college, Gurnick’s fastrack program pushes you to the limit of recognizing your strengths, weaknesses, and overcoming your anxiety and fears. The disadvantages would be the cost of the program, and at times, the disorganization, but everything is resolved in due time. As a recent graduate from the Psychiatric Technician program, I have learned that I was able to withstand the complex challenges & I feel even more confident in myself!
Gurnick Academy is a a great school. They provide an Ultrasound Technician program which is hard to find in the area of Fresno, CA. The only downfall is the tuition price. If you qualify for financial aid, that's great! but if you don't qualify it might cause financial issues. I unfortunately do not qualify for financial aid which is why I'm hoping scholarships can help me out.
They do their best to help you succeed. They will help you and perservere with you till the end. If you need any help they will not leave you alone and they will always do anything that is in their hands to help you. The hours are flexible and the classes are small where you are able to learn and understand better. Their are amazing teachers and staff and honestly I am very happy to attend Gurnick Academy and will do my best to finish and do what I love to do in the nursing field.
