Am writing this review now in hopes to give some perspective to any future individual that's thinking of attending this college...I attended their school back in 2012 for the medical billing program and it was the worse decision I made. I didn't learn anything and was sent to some bad externships that weren't teaching me anything except how to file papers, that in the end only wanted to hire me at $9 an hour with no promises of teaching me the real world of medical billing because they were fully staffed on billers. Now I know it's not the Externship fault but come on now, if your hoping on your students to learn the actual skill in real life make some effort on finding externships that will help and give them experience to say the least. This way there confident going out to the real world with some type of actual experience to find a job on their own. Now 2018 (yes 6 years later) I still owe my student loan of 11 grand that I got from them, as well as another 3 grand on top of that for their own fees. What makes matters worse now is that just recently their administration office has been contacting my family, friends, and co-workers looking for me which really upsets me. It's my own personal information that shouldn't be shared with others. I finally emailed them and let them know to stop contacting my friends, family and co-workers and that when am ready financially I will contact them. I gave them two stars because I know their simply doing their job on collecting payments and all but seriously contacting my family, friends and co-workers really hit the nail to make me write this review. So please if you made it this far on reading this, do your research fully when looking at a program.. In any school! The last thing you want is to end up like me owing all this money with nothing to prove. All best and good luck to all.

I graduated with from ACC with my LVN and this place is OUTSTANDING there isn’t a better LVN program, I am going to give a detailed review of this school.Dean/Director Mrs. Alfaro is awesome let me lead with that, she is an outstanding leader and DEMANDS excellence from the students and wants the best for the program. My group had the pleasure of being her first graduating class since she became the director and it was to our benefit. Mrs Alfaro is stern but if you put in the effort and work hard she will do anything to facilitate your success and for that I greatly respect her.Assistant Dean/Director: Mr Roberts ill be honest here I really didn't like him when I was a student, he came to the program when I was in Term 3 and he rubbed me the wrong way to say the least. But when he subbed as a teacher he was a WEALTH of knowledge and his experience showed in his teaching style. As the program came to an end Mr Roberts was very helpful and I learned to respect him and I understood that his leadership style was used to make all of us better students and future nurses, he is a great resource.Term 1:The initial term is "Introduction to Client Centered Care I" essentially this course is getting you acclimated with the history of nursing, nursing foundations, nutrition, pharmacology and human anatomy/physiology. This term was easy imo if you read the book and do the work you should have no issues. My group had Mrs. Alfaro teach us for the first 6 weeks and then Mrs. Daisy stepped in and she was pretty awful BUT if you stay on top of your studies this should be a nice term. The new term 1 instructor Ms Jocelyn is fantastic.Term 1 Clinical: If you get lucky you will get Mrs. Ramos, clinical is a completely different animal than class because it requires that you use the skills that you have learned in skills lab. Mrs. Ramos is amazing in term 1, she makes you work hard but the knowledge that you acquire from her will last forever and make you a great nurse in the future. I can still hear Mrs. Ramos in my head even when I am at work now, she really teaches you how to prepare yourself for the floor.Term 2: IMO this was the hardest term, "Introduction to the Client with Self-Care Deficits II" This term covers more in depth systems of the human body what makes this term hard is there is a test EVERYDAY, so if you're lazy you need to step it up in this term, we lost quite a few students in this term in my group, Ms. Ariyan is AWESOME, to say that she was helpful would be an understatement she did everything she could to prepare us for each test, and mostly she was very relatable to the students she is a great instructor in this term.Term 2 clinical: If you're lucky here too you will get Mrs Lane I had here for term 2 and 3, clinical in this term is hard if you have Lane, she is no nonsense and DEMANDS that you know your stuff..and she sees right through student BS, But with all of that said Lane REALLY teaches you how to chart, assess and manage your time on the floor, In this term you will start giving medications and Lane does a great job teaching you how that process works and what you SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT do I am forever grateful to Mrs. Lane.Term 3: is "Introduction to the Client with Self-Care Deficits III" This term is most Endocrine, its roughly 75% of the term, STUDY ..If you made this far you really don't need much advice just do the work..This term was hard mentally because you can see the finish line but it still out of reach...just keep working. Term 3 Clinical: the only difference in this term from term 2 is that you start doing blood sugar checks.Term 4: This term brings it all together by this Term you are nurse in everything but title, this term isn't what I would call HARD..its just a TON of work, more so than any other term, plus you have Capstone. What helps through this term is Ms. Bustos she is ideal for this term because she completely alleviates the stress by her teaching style. I was lucky enough to have her for clinical also, she was by far my favorite instructor.

I am back for my second time at the Hollywood campus. I went to Pasadena City College and it's good, but if you pass you do and if not "oh well." I see all these complaints and they are all really personal and not about the school. Nothing works for you, you work for it. ACC will try to help you, but you got to be ready to work hard. And school is expensive period. Do what works for you, reviews should not make your decision.

Thank God for reviews, I'm glad there's people that have gone to this school and has shared their experiences. There's many people dissatisfied and saying the same issues so I think I'll pass on checking out the Surgical Tech program, plus I'm not sure if this school is actually accredited 😬

I loved it!!! They really teach you how to be professional and what you go study for. About the money if you're planning on go to a vocational college well you have to pay because it's a private college! And I will be going back this time for surgical tech!
