You know you’ve signed up for the wrong school when even it won’t accept its own credits. That’s what some students found when they attempted to enter the Nursing Program with Pima Medical Institute after completing their Healthcare Management and associate’s programs in health fields. These students had been told by admissions and student advisors of Pima that these were the prerequisites necessary to enter get their degrees in nursing and begin working in their dream jobs. This turned out to be yet another level of fraud by Pima in representing the value of its educational programs and misrepresenting its accreditation.

When one student went to meet with the director of the nursing program to gain admittance, they were floored to discover that the interviewer was crabby, rude, ignored statements by the student, and asked scripted questions. They were in total shock when the director indicated that Pima’s associate’s programs and Healthcare Management program were in fact, not accepted as prerequisites. The director went so far as to scold the student, who had been working in the health field prior to beginning their studies, that they were ridiculous to think they could get into the program without an educational background from an accredited school as their credits were non-transferrable.

Imagine the shock at finding out that the school you’d been attending for years wouldn’t even accept its own credits. After three years at Pima, this particular student was several thousands in debt and had nothing to show for it. When they checked with other schools in the area, they discovered no one accepted Pima’s credits for the two lower level programs and that they’d wasted valuable time and money.

One student in the process of completing their externship which is required to graduate was shocked when their host approached them during their scheduled time and told them they could not return. The host indicated that they’d discovered Pima did not hold the liability insurance required to send students for externships and that the student would have to contact Pima for further direction. When the student notified the school what had taken place, they were tossed around from person to person with no answers until they were forced to ask for an extension or risk being booted from the program. They indicated that when they finally reached a person willing to deal with the issue that they were scolded for taking so long to notify the school and that they risked program termination as a result.

Students also complained that the high quality education Pima’s advertising stated they would receive while in their programs was just another fictitious statement. The programs had problems keeping instructors and as many as 14 new instructors were placed with one class in the course of one semester. Instructors complained they were underpaid to actually teach and real aloud from slides. They would soon ditch the programs and students were forced to deal with yet another new one. This meant that students were forced to take tests and exams without any real instruction and were basically penalized for Pima’s lack of organization as they were tested on material they never did manage to get taught.

Job assistance was yet another pipe dream in the fairy tale told by Pima administration as it never happened. Students who managed to reach the graduation stage were forced to fend for themselves as the promised leads and job placements never came. Students indicated the only thing consistent with a Pima education was its billing cycle.
