This school is an absolute joke. I began in June of 2014 for the vet assistant program and shortly found that ask they are here are rude, ignorant, selfish, money hungry people. I along with 3 others were accused of cheating on a TAKE HOME

I spoke to Nancy recently on the phone regarding my daughter and she was very nice. She was helpful and reassuring. Reading these reviews does concern me, but I will wait and see...so far so good

Here's the email I sent to Pima Headquarters (No reply btw):

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm emailing to inform you of a surreal, hostile, and extremely disappointing interaction with Nancy L., Medical Center Specialist at the Pima Seattle Campus.

When making an appointment earlier this week, I explained to the Seattle Campus point person of my situation. I explained that I was busy traveling and wouldn't be in Seattle until late Thursday evening. The Seattle Pima campus booked me an "audit" appointment time because of the unusual circumstances. I was promised an 8AM appointment.

Today, I arrived on campus for my 8AM appointment about ten minutes early. I filled out paperwork and was asked to wait.

Eventually, Nancy L. arrived late, with another employee. Waving dismissively at me in a no, up and down fashion (far from a friendly hello wave). Nancy L. said, "____ you're funny. I know you got my messages!" Nancy L.'s loud, degrading tone,was surreal and shocking. I felt humiliated as sat in the waiting room in with other people starring at me.

Well after 8:15AM, Nancy L. finally called for me (from in her office; yes, her loud voice traveled from her office down the hallway then to the waiting room). Much like an enraged, bad parent to a child, I was yelled for, not invited or asked in any neutral sense. Is this the Pima way? To belittle, attack, and infantilize?

Having never met Nancy L., let alone seen her office, she led me to her office with a belligerent and arrogant tone - not a greeting, handshake, or any eye contact. Yes, I had to follow her loud, demeaning, voice to find her office.

As I took a seat in her office, Nancy L. re-stated, "___, you're funny." Her glares were personal and mean. It appeared that Nancy L. might have a problem with diversity and working with the public.

When in her office I stated that I didn't appreciate being called "odd" and she became even louder and more adversarial. Nancy L. then restated that she called me "funny, not odd".

In the above context, I was "funny" either because I was laughable or odd. Regardless, both meanings are insulting, offensive, inappropriate, unwelcoming, and when coupled with her tone, pitch and mean glares (when we finally had eye contact)- it was hostile, belligerent, and worse than rude. If you have, or do, receive complaints from other employees about Nancy L.'s behavior, she might be a liability in another sense. This is further documentation.

Please know I even tried to calm Nancy L. down and reset the conversation in hopes that she'd realize how unprofessional and hostile she was behaving. I apologized to Nancy L. that it was perhaps a "bad time" for her and asked for some paperwork on the program. She refused, saying "my hands are tied "and proceeded to blame me for showing up and called me "funny" again.

I got up and left her office, promising to contact headquarters about her behavior.

That said, as working education professional, I've had great interactions and wonderful working relationships with admissions staff and nearly all types of post-secondary education professionals (from private universities to community colleges).

Nancy L. is perhaps one of the rudest employees I've ever encountered in any education / public services setting.

Nancy L. cost you my business.

Nancy L. does not belong in this role.

Nancy L. is a liability to your workplace and other employees.

Should you have any questions, please contact me in writing.

If I don't here a Pima official, I will go ahead and broadcast my experience.

I regret going to PIMA and being ripped off. I was the only moral person there. The Dental Program teacher was very rude and unapproachable. She never wanted to answer any questions. The Dental Program is not CODA accredited. The tuition is very over priced. The class was crowded and students talked loudly and inappropriately. There was an African student with music headphones on listening to rap music loudly during class. Another African student threatened a pregnant caucasian student to fight. PIMA has not sent me my tax form as promised. I still can't find a job. Graduated June 2009, and still unemployed. They did not help me find a job.

I attended the Tucson campus for Dental Assisting. From the first day, it was chaos. The teacher Aurelia was nothing but a mid life crisis mess who partied with her students and flirted with the guys all day long. She was a poor instructor who never spent one minute really being serious at all. None of the students had a chance to do the 'taught' procedures because she only showed us once and spent the rest of her time texting dudes while the class played on poured up models for practice. Such a joke. Mind you, I was an honor student and I took my education seriously....but I taught myself everything because she was just not available. When going over new material, she was so vague and and impatient if students who struggled needed further explanation. I felt bad for them. Also, she made it a point to kick us out early most days so she could go do her personal things and get out of class. She was late to class almost every day because she went to lunch and went shopping. I couldn't stand having her as an instructor because I am a very serious student and when I am paying 10k for an education to better myself, I better get a good instructor. It reminded me of being in a charter school for teen drop outs. It was a joke. Then when it was time for extern, I realized just how much we didn't learn. NONE of the things she showed us was what I did as an assistant. This school is not only a joke, but the instrutors are flunkies who couldn't keep a job elsewhere. I neer had a bad experience in the school. I kept to myself and did all of my homework and received good grades. I just feel that I wasted my time here as no one even helped with job placement either. A very expensive education, no job, and a mountain of debt. Highly not worth attending to future prospects. The teacher looked like she crawled out of bed from a night of partying every day and was a ghastly mess. I am very sorry I ever attended this school.

If you're thinking about going to Pima for your education, turn around and run the other direction. It may take a bit more time, but you'll get a better education elsewhere and in the long run, will probably be cheaper too.

I was in the vet tech program which costs roughly 23k and was told, "just because I paid the money doesn't mean I have a right to be at the school."
Most of the staff are rude, especially Nancy, who is rude and pushy. For the most part, the teachers pay attention to the star pupils who get the highest grades and leave the others who struggle behind. There are exceptions to the rule though, Ms. Maryam and Ms. April (who taught large animal but is no longer there), they were fantastic teachers that have a lot to offer. The rest I was unimpressed with.
Even though they're an accredited program, I wouldn't waste my time. Go to Pierce. To me it seemed that Pima doesn't know what's going on and their students suffer for it. There are lab skills to pass but you do it once and it's never brought up again for the rest of the program. There are surgeries every Tuesday, which you can learn a thing or two from, but I still say a better education can be acquired elsewhere.
In my entire school career I have never been talked to as rudely as I was at Pima. A good, decent teacher should never tell a student that they are mediocre and will never do well. They are supposed to be encouraging, especially if the student shows that they are really trying very hard!

Pros: Close to home
Cons: Rude and pushy staff, poor education for too much money, the list goes on....

So far I've had a great experience. I haven't started class yet but I'm enrolled to begin the Vet Assistant program at the end of this month. I'm glad I didn't read any of these reviews before I went down there, otherwise I probably wouldn't have done it. I don't see where all the negativity is coming from.
Nancy was wonderful! I called and made an appt to meet with admissions and was able to be squeezed in that day. I spent 5 hours with Nancy! We talked about everything! She was so helpful, and reassuring. I never felt like she was trying to give me a sales pitch, or rush me out of her office because she had other things to do. Now I never expected to spend 5 hours there, but the time just flew by! She answered every question I had, and even gave me information on points I never would have thought to ask.
The Financial Aid dept is great as well. They gave me all the information I needed, and worked every angle to make sure I got the best funding. They are super flexible with their payment plans. They make it so you can attend their school and get the training needed to pursue the career you want.
Everytime I've been to the campus the staff has been super helpful and friendly.
I just hope once I actually start class it will remain that way.

I am a current student in the Veterinary Technician program and I am very unsatisfied with the program. If I could do it all over again, I would have chosen to attend Pierce College instead. The only benefits are that Pima is close to my home and the program is accelerated. These points seem minor to me now. One of the reasons I feel this way stems from when I went on my first externship, the Veterinarian complained how frustrating it is that that Pima students weren't very well prepared. This point made me feel very embarrassed. The school is understaffed, and has too many students. It is a struggle to get practical experience in during class hours. The school does however hold surgeries every tuesday. I is helpful to come and watch but there will only be a few opportunities to be able to practice the highly technical skills that will make a student desirable and useful to an employer.

The cost of tuition for the program right now is over 23K, which is more than what you would pay for a community college education and yet, the community college I attended a few years ago had much better supplies and resources. Often a whole class of about 30 people are crowding and fighting to get a little lab skill experience with Pima's meager teaching supplies. Not to mention the instructors at a Community College are better educated people overall. Don't get me wrong, there are some really good instructors at Pima who bring some great experience to the table, but there are some instructors who are have no business teaching at all. I seem to know more about anatomy and physiology from a ten credit college course then some of these "professors".

There is one main instructor in particular who is not approachable at all. Many people are downright afraid to talk to her. She gets irritated when people ask her questions but then gets irritated that people don't ask her questions. She gets upset and hurls insults to people who don't demonstrate skills right (She doesn't take the effort to come around to students to help and explain things, rather leave it to us students to figure them out among ourselves) She mumbles all the time so many people can't hear her. She just all around makes it apparent that she hates her job and has nothing but contempt for the students here.

Another problem I have with the curriculum is that a lot of the information given to you is conflicted. The texts books will say one thing and the instructors will say something totally different, then you get the test and find that its answers are different again. This is a common complaint among students. Complaints often get shrugged off. The teachers give you the sense that they are bound by what the corporate office wants and are powerless to do anything about it.

All in all. I may very well pass the VTNE after graduating from PIMA. But will I have the skills to be competitive in the workforce after graduating? I doubt it.

I am a current student at the Seattle campus and can't wait until graduation. My impatience is not due to enthusiasm about my new field, but the fact that I hate this place. I'm literally counting down the days until I can leave. Every staff member is rude, unreasonable an unhelpful. If you have a question good luck getting it answered. I have instructors that are so demeaning and unapproachable that students will actually plead with other students to ask their questions for them because they fear the instructor. When you pay this much for education, particularly for a job where certification isn't even required, you shouldn't hate and fear your teachers. The office staff is even worse. Students that complain about wanting to be treated decently are labeled as "high risk students" and treated like dirt. One student who complained even had to sign a paper stating she "would not question", in order to advance to the next program. The ethics of this place make me ill.

I advise not seeing Nancy. She was rude. So rude I walked out of the interview. She will push other programs on you & will try to discourage you. Avoid her!

The rest of the Admin was very nice. But because of Nancy I won't be attending PIMA. I don't want my money to pay her salary.

The advisor's who conducted our seminar were less than professional! Nancy was one of them! They insult you, slam other schools, and don't seem to be willing to return phone calls should you have any other questions or concerns! Look at other schools first! I would have rather have gotten information over the phone than to have wasted time off from work,sitting in one of their hokey non-personal advising seminars! Their wead out process is demeaning! Honest schools and tech programs will be willing to help and answers questions over the phone!

The advisor's who conducted our seminar were less than professional! Nancy was one of them! They insult you, slam other schools, and don't seem to be willing to return phone calls should you have any other questions or concerns! Look at other schools first!

Honest schools and tech programs will be willing to help and answers questions over the phone!

Pros: I'm sure the instructors are better than the advisors!

Cons: Too many to list!

I have been going to this school for several months now and from day one I have been impressed with how nice everyone who works there has been. They have been very helpful with everything including Financial Aid. Instructors are knowlegable and fun. They are fully accredited with The AVMA after only 2 years when it takes other schools 5!!! Take it from someone who actually goes to this school, they are a great school and well worth taking a look at for anyone who wants in this field.

I chose to write a review once I noticed the only people writing worth a damn about this school are people who never even went here. As far as rude people, I have no idea who they had, but mine and everyone else experience is great with the staff. They remember you and talk to you, and pop in class to see how you are doing. They are great here. Not Rude!

I came here recently (going into my 7th week) completely scared of this place because I never did well in the past, but the teachers here make it a cinch. I have great teachers and counselors whom explain everything in black and white. I do recommend this school to anybody interested. Ignore these people who don't know a thing about it before they write a review!

FYI the "assistant" programs are required unless you have worked in the field before, the tech programs otherwise are too advanced and you would be waist deep in information you wouldn't yet understand! You're crazy if you think you can just walk in a tech program and be fine. It's very challenging. I am planning on doing tech only when I am ready!

If there would have been "zero" to rate the Seattle's Pima advisors, I would have choosen it! They are so unprofessional! Very rude, aggressive sales people without any style, totaly unrefined! They will attack and insult you as soon as you start asking real questions! They are obviously hiding something and confirming all the bad reported about them! I will never cross their door again! Actually, I am gratfull that they showed their real face!

Everyone all involved are rude, not helpful and want you to do more schooling that what you should. Beware of them telling you to start at there 'assistant' programs' then later doing the tech. or next level program. All they care about is how much money they can get and very rude about doing it. Don't do it, it'll be a big mistake on your part!
