I’ve been studying the Veterinary Assistant Program since June and it’s been a pretty good experience thus far. It’s a lot of reading with no teacher instruction/ guidance which makes it a little harder for me because I like interactive assignments, presentation, etc. but using YouTube videos and the Penn Foster Vet Assistant Facebook group helps! There are instructors you can speak with if you ever need help, but it an “at your own pace” course, so there aren’t any meetings or classes you have to participate in to get a grade. In the end, it’ll all be worth it once I get to apply what I have learned in the course to my externship where I can be more hands on.
It has been a positive experience for me overall. I especially like that it's a self paced program and that the staff has been really helpful. As far as college tuition, it is one of the most affordable options. Text books are included in my Veterinary Assistant Program, which was unheard of at the other colleges that I've attended. I'm learning a lot through the study materials, and at the end of the program one needs to apply for an internship position which is where one can apply the knowledge from the classes. It is a rewarding experience to help animals, so I really look forward to my studies every day from Penn Foster.
I am currently enrolled in Penn Foster College and I can honestly say I am enjoying the program. I am working on an Associates Degree and Penn Foster has made it available to all sorts of people to earn a Degree by offering flexibility. I work full time so for me Penn Foster was a go to college because I can do school work at any time and place. The fact that they give goal dates to schedule your course work and exams, help in maintaining focus and determination. I love to see how my goal tracker keeps growing by each assignment and test I complete. I love that it is very accessible and very affordable and can work with you in choosing a payment plan that works for you. If I had to change something, it would have to be the shipping time. It takes 3-5 business days to arrive and if you're like me, I can complete several assignments in a day. For me, having to wait that amount of days means I get behind in my goal but it's nothing major. I love everything about the program.
