Kaplan College Stockton CA
If you can go somewhere else, do it. I just graduated from Kaplan's Vocational Nursing program. Once they get your money, you mean absolutely nothing to them and are treated with total disrespect. Although I passed the boards and am now licensed, I would NOT attribute this to anything the school did for me or any of my classmates. The instructors are unprofessional and do not know ANYTHING. The only instructor who was good, Mrs. Fernandez (filipino woman), should get the hell out of there because she deserves to be treated better. During the time I attended this school, we went through FOUR Directors of Nursing. It was so disorganized and no one seemed to care. They tell you that they will make sure you stay on track and you will get warnings if you're not. TOTAL LIE. Half way through the program, a girl was kicked out, without any knowledge she had it coming, because she didn't pass a quiz. Can you imagine paying so much in tuition and being told you are OUT of the program half way through? They're heartless and do not keep their word. It's a joke. The rules were unclear and were constantly changed the entire 12 months, depending on the mood of our DON and instructors. I felt like a child, a prisoner, and a fool, knowing I had paid so much to be treated that way.
The cost of the program was $32, 000. You would think that with us paying that much, they would have a great staff that is paid well. Not the case here. We even had a teacher tell us that she's looking for a new job because of how bad the pay is. Not to mention the clinical sites (or lack there of). We did not even attend clinical in a pediatric or maternity clinical setting. We were sent to a homeless shelter and a preschool and were told that's all they could get. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE 12 months of my life that I am so glad is over.See also:
