Worst program I have EVER been a part of. DO NOT GO TO ANHO. They will steal your money. Let you get to the end only to bombard you with make or brake tests over and over. Complete waste of my $20k. Cant wait for my lawsuit to slap them in the the face.
Thanks ANHO!

ANHO IS THE WORST on April 16, 2014 said:

SO NOT GO TO ANHO. Choose a real school. The teachers have no clue what is on the test they are supposedly preparing students for. A parking lot attendant is the one who makes the tests for the students. HORRIBLE PLACE

ASHAMED I ATTENDED ANHO on April 16, 2014 said:

Save yourself MEGA heart ache. They will just take your money and leave you high and dry. Wont even allow you to get to the state testing. WTF is the point of going to a school that just wants to fail you. HORRRRRRRRRRRRIBLE SCHOOL

M.S on April 01, 2015 said:

They will fail you at the end!!!!!!! The only school i know of that put things on a test that was never covered. Don't waste your money because its a short course because you WILL end up being their forever and still not MAKE it to NCLEX.

on May 02, 2015 said:

Academy is a fake school. They wait until you get to the end of your program, then you that you will have to start over after they get all your money. They tell you that it is free to repeat but not so they make you sign grant application before you start so it is about the money out the interest of the students they should be investigated. Our of 75 students only 16 was allowed to take the boards. There's so many systems who have a lone and have nothing to show for it

Proud student on June 10, 2016 said:

I attended the Academy for both my LPN and RN. They are not out to fail any student, but to be sure they pass NCLEX. At first I didn't understand why we must go through integration, but after passing NCLEX RN and PN on first try I understand why. Intergreation is like a review, I took my PN board before graduation and RN right after graduation without having to spend any money on a review class. Thank you ANHO! When is the BSN program?

Dee Trnka on August 03, 2016 said:

I signed up for the bridge program to RN, I was disappointed that services were not rendered as promised and paid for. They returned a portion of my loan and grant and now I am stuck with a loan payment and still no resolution with ANHO. I have called and was told I signed a contract. Yes I did but that contract also included classes, books, uniform and support. I was provided 2 online classes that I didn't need, no support the online teachers resigned and students werent informed. Stay far away....

To the admissions representatives at the Academy for Practical nursing.

I considered attending your school but after reading that your school is to teach UNDERPRIVILEGED people. I find that very offensive, most men and women that attends your school is African American.

I'm sure not everyone that attends your school is poor and I'm sure most students that attends your school is intelligent enough to get accepted to Palm Beach State, Indian River, Broward College, and other state colleges and universities. We all have varies reasons to why we prefer not to attend a certain college. I'm very intelligent and I chose your private institution because most schools have a very long waiting list.

If this school thinks this way about their students, you could imagine what the healthcare facilities think about the students that graduated from this school. All of our hard work and dedication to this school will be a waste of time.

I think it's best that I continue with Palm Beach State.

It is really pathetic that everyone here says similar things about this school, and all have no relationships to one another. It is the same scam that they use day after day. Everyone fails an exam and 60 to 70 points are added to the grades, but you miss one point on the final exam; they make you repeat the whole program all over. I find it very strange that one would pass all classes and exam making it to the end, and near graduation to only end up failing and not graduate. What is wrong with the picture? It is as if they get more grant money by the amount of students that they fail and have to repeat.
