I attended SJVC in 2008-2009 and was treatedQuite BrightOther
I attended SJVC in 2008-2009 and was treated unfairly by Ms. Zepeda because of her and the Dean I got kicked out of my medical assistant program it was my last day of classes and she felt I copy my power point which was unfair because other students she gave them the opportunity to get their references while mine were on there she didn't even let me redo my power point something about she had to turn it in to the dean because I wouldn't respect her as a teacher that was all a bunch of lies this school is just out to take money from people and take advantage of them. I completed everything for nothing exactly what the dean said very unfair to someone who took out loans just to pay for this overpriced program and still suffering from it 4 years later this school ruin my life in debt and scar me from even attending another school. I really studied and tried very hard in my courses to pass them. Well I was wondering if there is anything I can do about this situation with my credits earned it's pretty stupid to be paying $23,000 dollars when I basically was almost done the following week was my externship the dean also said I was cheating on a test because of Ms.Tienda none of my instructors tried to even help me when I wrote a letter of appeal to the dean I am sure you remember now nobody was in my corner to help me out and I was a dedicated student I just don't understand how you all can do this to someone putting them in debt and be so careless about them and Mrs. Cuellar using me as example in her classroom shame on her very professional on a grown women especially an instructor

Visalia RN program is the worst experience ofNot so brightNursing
Visalia RN program is the worst experience of my life. The staff is small and works against the students. Email go unanswered, no tutoring available, homework is not graded or imputed until after the class is over, they are rude, uncaring, unavailable, and they lie to protect eachother. The director of the campus will not allow students to talk to him about problems, but refers them back to the director or the RN program, which is where the problems originate. Attending this school was the worst decision of my career. There is no where for a student to go when treated unfairly, and it is ongoing! On a daily basis, the class discusses get a lawyer. Things are that bad. Most of the students are contacting the BRN to report what goes on in this program. They should be shut down. There is nothing ethical about this program. There is one teacher, critical care, that is the definition of unethical. She tells students they will fail out on a regular basis, she constantly says students are unprepared (which is not correct) she does not return emails or phone calls, she does not grade or give feedback, she does not lecture or demonstrate, basically, she is lazy and is there to babysit and pick up a check. It's really sad. Complaints have been made, and nothing get done. The director pretends to care and then its over. Go anywhere, but don't go to this school. Its horrible.

The nursing staff doesQuite BrightNursing
The nursing staff does not follow through with their job description. They leave fundraiser money all over their desk and walk away leaving their office door open. They do not fill paper work out correctly causing students to not be able to take their state boards.
