This school was the worst decision I everQuite BrightNursing
This school was the worst decision I ever made. I was enrolled in the evening nursing program and then I went to register for Nursing 102 adn was told they filled my spot. My only option was to move to the day class not easy with a full time job. The teachers when you could understand them were not helpful and one the russian instructor Olga was down right mean and mean to patients. Horrible experience look at Quincy Community College or another school nearby this school is horrible!

Question
I'm a recent graduate of Laboure College HITNot so brightSchool of Information
I'm a recent graduate of Laboure College HIT Program, I must say that I'm terribly disappointed in the lack of employment opportunities in this field. The starting salary for college graduate is terrible (Between $10 and $14 an hour). A lot of my friends who graduate with Business, Accounting, Nursing, Computer, and Engineering degrees are getting hired right out of colleges/Universities with starting salaries between $40000 and $55000. I regret getting this degree, I spent so much money on obtaining my degree at Laboure College and the return on my investment is marginal. I should have just gotten a certificate degree in coding at a community college. Coding is the only segment of the HIM field that pay okay money, and requires certification. I just needed to take basically 3 courses (medical terminology, HIPPA, EHR)in order to obtain a medical record clerk position. The other thing, I noticed with industry is the lack of internship opportunities for students. Where I work the hospital constantly had internship openings for Nursing students, but would not accept internship in the HIM Department. I just wish I had know about AHIMA coding program online, it only cost $2000 to complete the entire program, it would have cost me a lot less money. Instead of owning Laboure College over $40000 for HIT degree, I could have completed the program for $2000

Question
Please Please Please do your research.BrightOther
Please Please Please do your research. Just because its a catholic, health edu. does not mean anything. Schools are businesses too their good at promoting themselves. My time at Laboure has been a waste of ALOT of money/time. There are barely any resources or support available for students. The school is small meaning not many teachers if you do have a problem with their teaching style well tough, there is no where you can go to learn the material unless you have found a great mentor in your life. A lot of the faculty not all are not realistic and do not have any interest in students success. There is a lot of arrogance and finger pointing esp. at the students. There is not a lot of people who can not take responsibility, you will hear a lot of excuses that add to the waste of time. Every health program is challenging to your learning, the disorganization here adds to the chaos. My advice do your research and do not pick the first school that accepts you.
