BE FAIR TO EVERYBODY! – I am also a student of Jethro - took my CNA there in Jan 2011 - passed the IDPH Board Exam, later I took Dialysis - and then Phlebotomy - I also passed the CCHT Board and Phlebotomy last Dec. 2012. I am now working as a PCT in a big hospital in Chicago.
I would just like to be fair and give comments on evaluating Transcript of Records since this is one of the requirement to take the Board Exam . When I enrolled last year, at the time of my registration, Jethro staff reminded me that I need to have my diploma translated and evaluated since I graduated from Mexico. The school send all of us a written reminder before the final exam. Most of us, we did not mind about it because we thought it would be easy to do the evaluation. Some of my classmates they ask Jethro to help in evaluating their diploma which was around $ 80 and took them 3 to 4 weeks to get the evaluation. I thought 3 to 4 weeks is a long time, so I did it by myself- I went to internet and look for an evaluating company, I was charged $ 160 and I thought it would be like 7 days only but it took them 4 weeks also to do the translation and evaluation. I called up the evaluation company and they said that it depends upon the country of origination. Sometimes, school don't respond immediately and most of the time, school are in remote provinces or are already closed - thus evaluation time takes longer than usual. In my case, my school in high school closed 10 years ago .... In fairness to Jethro School - it is not the school staff's fault if evaluation of diploma /transcript are delayed. The school only acts us an emissary and they are not the one doing evaluation. So , don't blame the school of something they are not in control. Blame the school if they don't have good teachers or curriculum. I might say for me, I love the school since I had been there from CNA to Advance Dialysis and I was able to get a job and change my life.... thus, I am grateful to Jethro. My advise, be fair before judging people .....
HOORAY!!! I passed the Board Exam! – I took the CCHT Board for Dialysis 2 weeks ago and got 130 score out of 150! I called up the Administrator and thanked for their support. I graduated May 2011 last year and after a month was able to find a job . My other 2 classmates were also hired in other Dialysis Companies. I could say that our exams in Jethro are harder or may be they trained us more. I could say that school really helps and they give us good advice. I was working in a restaurant before, although I had been a CNA for many years, and one of the staff in Jethro just encouraged me to pursue to Dialysis. Now, I am a bonafide Dialysis Tech and I am working two jobs - in two Dialysis Centers. What more could I ask for? Sometimes, we just only have to be patient and strive hard in order to achieve something. When I look for Dialysis Job last year, i had to send my resume to various facilities , but I did not give up .... also,,,,, the recommendation letter from the school was a great help . Thanks a lot!
BAD SERVICE! – I took dialysis tech in this school,I finished last march 25,2012.This School has the most disorganized staff.example when u ask them questions they will always answer you i dont know or the staff will answer you different wrong answers specially males they dont what there doing they dont have good customer service.My big issue is they told me that if I had my foreign high school diploma evaluated from them i will save more money rather than doing it myself and they it will be faster. its been a month now and I still dont have it. they told me it will only take 5-7 business days and everytime i called them they keep saying it will be done nxt wk.This school needs a new staff or the owner needs to organized or train their staff to be a good customer service if they keep treating like that they will loose new student.
Able to pass the Board!!! – I enrolled last September in Jethro School and thought I am already old to be a Dialysis and Phlebotomist. I was really reluctant to enroll but the staff were nice and very informative. I took my Dialysis and went to their clinical in the hospital which I learned a lot about machine stripping, water system etc. Later ,I took the Phlebotomy and able to draw blood , which I was nervous in the beginning. Now, I am working as a Dialysis/Patient Care Tech and thanks for the recommendation and encouragement from the school.
Jethro Dialysis Tech – I took the Dialysis Technician Course from Jethro HS graduated in December last year. I can say that I'm hurt when some people make lies about the school and the admin/ instructors. It only shows they just want to destroy the good refutation as all graduates can attests that we have the best Instructors and training, they can check the school's batting percentage in the exams. For me I passed mine, so I must have learned what they intend to inculcate in me. You haters out there, you will never improve your lot as long as you don't change your attitude. You can't put down a good school.
REAL JETHRO STUDENT – I am a bonafide Jethro School student and graduated from this school last November.
Whoever, is doing bad publicity to the school, be aware that it is a crime to do internet libel.
It just so happen that I would like to thank the school because I just found out that I passed the CNA board last week and currently looking for a job. I am also enrolled in their Restorative Nursing Assistant Course.
Contrary to what this bad publicity saying, we pay the school on installment basis and before our midterm and final exam we receive a notice to pay which is very lenient.
Also, our teacher was a white American nurse , so how could they say that she does not speak English well where in fact this is her native language.
For the School Administrator and instructors, all of them talk in English and we know that they are MBA and RNs.
It seems that there is one person who is giving bad publicity in this school but don't know what he/she is saying because he/she doe not know who our instructor .
Please stop being jealous to this school. Soon people will find out who you are.
I will be attending their Phlebotomy/EKG Class , come to Jethro School and talk with me , I am a real person and student.
RESEARCH and make an intelligent decision – Be smart when reading these reviews. Most of the "good" feedback, is very similar. Speak with the owner, who is in the office and you can see the language barrier and improper use of the English language.
Consider this: does a random person, come to City Search, to report an inaccuracy in telephone number?
This "school" is padding their own ratings for a reason. Shady is an understatement! You are responsible for people lives, don't settle for a crack jack box education.
Of course they may be nice, until they have your check in your their hand and the first moment they can get away, they will be at your bank. Is that a crime, no but the facts speak for themselves.
You will find a better paying job from a reputable school. Employers consider where you received your education!
Phlebotomy/ EKG Class – I graduated from Jethro 2 years ago as a CNA and I am now working with 2 Nursing Homes. One part time and the other one is my full time.
Glad to know that Jethro has the Phlebotomy/ EKG class now. I just enrolled in this class. I am happy with Jethro , they really helped students to pass the Board Exam . Keep it up Jethro and hope you will have LPN Program soon!!!
LPN – I have never attended a school like Jethro. I had alot of memorable experience from this school. I met good friends and learned alot from their good teachers. Also the graduation last December was a bomb! Other schools charge graduation fees, Jethro, on the other hand doesnt charge a penny. The food was excellent and the entertainment was the best. My friends and family who attended the graduation were impressed. I will DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this school to everyone. I cant wait to get into their nursing program. Thank you Jethro for the support. Keep it up!
EXCELLENT SCHOOL!!!! – This school was recommende to me by a friend, and went to this school for Dialysis. Reading all the bad reviews, all of my classmates hinted that is a doing of only one person who is only jealous of the popularity of the school and the generosity and kindness of the . Administrator. We will try to find out who is that person . We are an association of students who graduated from this school and are going to give our all out support to Jethro School!!! City Search officers could you please check the IP of that person, we believe it is only coming from one IP Address. We will contact you.
