Unitek College Reviews
I really enjoy the accelerated programs. I love the saying the popular saying" ain't nobody got time for that". Being a mature student working on my second career in life I don't like to mess around with extra stuff that isn't need. long wait lists are just not my thing. I want to get in and out of a program. This is it.
It has excellent teachers and great motivation for its students. The teachers are always there for the students. The students work together and stay together on specific topics pertaining to them.
terrible, unprofessional, they just want your money, they do not care about you or your education... all they care about is how much money they can get from you...
I attend the south San Francisco campus and everyone is awesome. Staff and professors are there every step of the way and they are there for you when it comes to finances and studies.
I have only been at the Sacramento unitek college but my worst experience is with my teacher slash medical tech surgery i feel i didnt learn much with her at all i feel my teacher was lazy and lack morales she had favorites i felt like i didnt belong
this a great school everyone is helpful
None of my credits were transferred and I went to CSUEB and had Ohlone classes however none of them were transferred and I had to order official transcripts expedited to reach the random deadline they sprung on us. But none of the classes were credited to me, however some classes were credited to my other classmates from the same school.
I feel like professor/student relationship isn't that great for all online classes I've taken because it becomes so impersonal. When you don't see a person face to face you don't know what they're capable of and what kind of student they are. Teachers are less lenient and a lot more strict.
They're really helpful and care about your future with working, and creating resumes. I don't know about the job prospects, I know that some doctors have posted reviews on Unitek's site bashing some students. But a few students don't represent the whole population.
Class sizes are great, there were only about 22 people in my pre-req classes. The professors were nurses so they had hands on experience on what they were teaching us and were informed on what they were talking about. The class style is mostly lecture and learn.
They help us get a job right out of college, there are resume building classes, and a very high NCLEX passing rate.
It's a pretty good experience so far, I'm getting a lot of new information and I like that they're straight to the point and only applicable to nursing. So I don't learn any information that's not applicable to the career I want to do.
It's an ok school, they're really focused on your money, they charge a lot of money for just an LVN license and I'm trying to get my bachelors so I have a long way to go. Most people were accepted but you needed a 75% or more for the pre-reqs to be accepted and there was a test every day. Only a handful didn't make it, the rest did. You pay $3,150 for 13 days of "pre-reqs".
I see a lot of room for improvement especially when it comes to time management. There is a lot of class time that is not utilized efficiently. I definitely think lectures could improve especially given the cost of tuition. The lectures should be similar for every group of students going through the program for example they should just have 3 or 4 different versions of each lecture and then less time will be spent on preparing the lecture and more time will be spent on students learning something important for a test or something they will need to know when they are in clinicals or something else that will help students remember the material more easily so that other concepts or material can be learned.
The school has once a month gatherings for the students like; Pie for thanksgiving week, milk and cookies before christmas break and a candy drive for valentines day!
I do not have personal experience with online courses.
The curriculum is fast paced, so there is not much room for flexibility. However, the instructors in the class and lab are very helpful and explain in detail any questions that are presented
I have heard many good things about career services actively looking for jobs for graduated classes, even before taking the NCLEX
There are some very reputable cohorts that have gotten job offers from clinical sights, and it says a lot about the degree I will obtain. I hope to be able to get clinical, and work at the VA hospital in San Francisco.
The teachers are great, the lab rooms are really helpful, my instructors always answer my emails, but the computer system could improve. The office administration could be nicer and less "money" motivated, but I understand that a business is a business
