Most Admin People Are Useless, Teachers Are Great – Surgical Technology is a new program at this salter location, so most of us expected some bumps in the road. Those did not include being lied to by the admissions person, about the job placement rate (were told 98%, but she left out that was for another program) we were also told that the program was accredited, which they just recieved. The school isnt listed on most sites for scholarships, and isnt reconized by more then 2 student loan places so unless you have perfect credit dont be mistaken by thinking you can take out a loan to cover the costs that arent covered by federal funding or for other financial hardships. And the current Financial aid lady is about as helpful as the doorknob.
So with all the negative out, if that didnt scare you away haha the education seems great, teachers are supportive and understanding and seem to have a lot to share to keep you interested when the book work gets boring. they are all very excited to talk about how things are and want the students to succeed; and dont hesitate about weeding out the ones that shouldnt be there. The mock/real OR is great, we have just about everything we need to get a good hands on experience with instruments, equipment, supplies ect.
The Salter School in Manchester is great, as long as you understand the difficulties that may arise esp with financial aid and loans. and whatever you do, do not quit your job unless you think it is too much for you to do both. In my class alone, one has had to drop out because she quit her job and 3 of us are still on the fence hoping to be able to push thru the last couple of months
Network Is Good – 2 computer labs although since the hurricane this summer, some of the computers still dont have access to internet or wont print but they are working on that. wireless network is weak in and around labs
