Our Admissions Process

At Prism Career Institute, we aim to help prospective students choose a fulfilling career path that provides them with both personal and financial rewards. All prospective students interested in admission to Prism Career Institute have to undergo the admissions process, which is outlined as follows:

  1. Applicants must first complete an initial questionnaire that will be evaluated by an admissions representative, who will then interview each applicant to evaluate their goals and circumstances.
  2. Prospective students then have to take a school entrance exam, and students who pass will be considered for admission.
  3. The admissions department works with the program departments to determine the applicant’s ability to succeed in the program and decides their admission status. Students will then receive written notification from the school regarding whether they were accepted or not.

Prism Career Institute adheres to an Equal Opportunity Policy, which means we do not discriminate based on gender, race, veteran status, or other factors. This policy encompasses all of our educational programs, as well as admissions policies, financial aid and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.

Conditions Affecting Training and Career Placement

  2. Applicants to the Practical Nursing program must submit to a Criminal Background Report prior to enrollment, and if any offenses are noted, the Program Director will make the decision as to whether the applicant can be admitted to the Practical Nursing program.
