This school is all about money. Money Money Money. I was excited about starting this school and getting a good nursing education. I am grateful for finishing but the process that I had to go through was ridiculous. I was mistreated and retaliated against for speaking up about the quality of my education which I had ever right to do. If you have any concerns about learning the material and you speak up about it, be prepared to be labeled as the trouble maker of your class and treated ridiculously from there on out. The education is medicare as the teacher turn over rate is obsurd. Teacher are thrown in the classroom with no training or structure they are given a syllabus and lecture that is already prewritten for them and they are expected to freestyle and get the material across. That is no big deal for someone who actually knows nursing material and understands the anatomy physiology and pathophysiology of what they are teaching.

During my time here I have gotten great grades and worked super hard and passed my HESI exam on the first try. I learned a lot but part of that was teaching myself which is ok too but for the price you are paying, you end up teaching yourself the material way to often than you should. I had been threatened to be expelled, I have been told  that I needed to be "broken" and that I had too much pride to be a nurse. At graduation, I was told that my family was cheering too loud and that they were embarassing and my diploma holder was snatched away but eventually handed to me, I stood there in shock in front of everyone. Completely appauled.

I graduated over two months ago, everyone in my class has received their diploma certificate except me, what a coincidence. I called the school after seeing people post their diplomas on instagram only to find out that the school was holding my diploma and they never sent my board application for my nursing license before graduation like they did everyone else in my graduating class. The school claimed that there was some magic glitch in their system and I have more of a balance to pay and for that reason they sat on my board application and are holding my diploma. I'm glad I inquired with the school because until this day, I would have never known and still been patiently waiting for an nclex testing date. Good luck for all of you attending this school or planning to in the near future. If you have other choices, please weigh your options.

Gurnick Response for Review Posted on January 14, 2014

AUTHOR: Gurnick - ()

Hello and thank you for your review. Our accelerated nursing program here at Gurnick Academy is indeed intensive, and does require our students’ commitment, time management and dedication.  We applaud you for passing your HESI exit examination on your first attempt! The program is designed for this type of result that carries over to successful NCLEX passing sores and licensure rates.  Our entire team of experienced nursing Faculty undergoes various forms of training that meet the requirements of both the BVNPT (Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians) as well as ABHES (Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools).  Furthermore, Gurnick Academy has recently developed The P.A.S.S. Program for its graduates, which stands for Post Academic Student Success. This program is free of charge and is specifically geared to provide a structured NCLEX review series for our graduates. Graduates are encouraged to take advantage of the resources Gurnick has to offer, especially while waiting to take the board exam. Lastly, it is a school policy and a common standard that all financial obligations must be cleared in order to receive your diploma. Please contact your campus, or the accounting department, and they will be happy to review your full account summary in detail with you. We are proud to offer a strong team of Educators, Staff, and Administration who assist our students each and every day in achieving their educational goals.
