They are a ripoff. I went there back in 03 for their MA program that they just had started and the recruiter lied to me along with a few other girls wanting to pursue a career in the nursing field that they would have an RN program that we can bridge
over to once they have that program available. I first went in and checked the school out and then called days later to tell her that I'm not interested in becoming an MA and would like to check out FCCJ's nursing program and she lied and told me that they too will be having an RN program and I can also get my degree. I didn't find out until about a year or more after I've already started going that it was a lie. One girl dropped out and started all over again at FCCJ because she found
out it was a lie. A few of the other girls stayed since they've already put so much time and effort into the program and into getting their degree.
When I first started, it was all so easy! Got A's in every course but Economics and had one course until I needed to complete the whole program but I was already getting paid more than what MA's make at my current job! I had hopes of becoming a nurse one day, not an MA and to find out that my credits were non-transferrable when I did my research and that there was no such thing as an RN program I can bridge over to, I was furious! I even filed a complaint to the Dept of Education and FTC lied to them and said that I always left early which was originally my complaint about the professors letting us leave hours early every day and they said I barely attended school which was a lie! Why would I want to pay 24k to not attend school? That was a lie! I was early everyday and was excited to be at school everyday, otherwise, I wouldn't have made the decision of pursuing an education in nursing! They even went as far as changing my transcripts to say I was doing poorly in school! I worked full time and went straight to school afterwards from 6-9, Mon-Thurs. Now what dummy
that slacked in school would want to do that? I don't have money to burn like that. I had 2 kids, I would never enroll in school only to waste money! I was going to school so I can make more money in the future. Why else?!
I know a few of the girls that felt the same way I did. Now, I am stuck with this huge debt that wasn't worth it and didn't finish school because it wasn't worth it. The recruiter, I'm not sure what happened to her. I know she left months after I started. I'm not sure if she got fired or quit and my professor left months after as well. That school is very unorganized and they shouldn't be telling lies just to get students in. There's not one day that I don't regret going there but I did. I'm an ambitious person with 2 kids. A degree in medical assisting and science won't do anything for me. Just to think,
if I just stuck to my plan and went to FCCJ, didn't believe the lies they told me, I could be nursing right now with years of experience. I've worked in the medical field for 7 years and nursing was something I really wanted to do but cant. I've invested 16+ months into going to school and getting good grades for absolutely nothing.
