It is very unfortunate that students pay a lot of money for certain programs when you can take it at a community college , where its cheaper and the program is actually accredited and looks better for future jobs, for some reason most places will not take a student from this school when it comes to the nursing program / diagnostic medical sonography program. also when you come to learn about the school and programs they throw you in a program they want to because its all about the money, if your looking for nursing don't think its that easy to get in.

Nursing program, student and staff full of drama at times. Best to focus on school work and be positive.

I finished my RN last December, took the NCLEX last March and passed, take one. I now work as an RN in a hospital where I did my clinical.

I have attended another college prior to EIC and my experience at EIC is by far 200% better than the community college I previously attended.

The classes are tough but I learned because class sizes were small so I had more interaction with my teachers.

I am writing these few words to try to verbalize my experience at Eastern International College, formerly MicroTech, which is what the school was called when I attended. I am very grateful to the administrative staff and faculty for making a hard, fast-paced course fun and exciting. I must say the teachers were impeccable; they were knowledgeable in their craft and gracious enough to share it with us. They were friendly and approachable, if a thousand of questions were asked a thousand and one answers were given. The administrative staff was always available to speak to you from the financial department, to the job placement to anyone. Everyone had a smile on their face from the receptionist all the way to the head of the school. I would like to thank every single person in the Jersey City Campus that helped me enter into the medical field and fueled my desire in continuing school, reason being I am inquiring about the RN program.

I got accepted into the Nursing program and I did not have that problem. Clearly, the person that wrote the review did not get accepted. It is a shame that someone who got rejected has to resort to "trash talk." If you didn't get accepted, get over it and move on. It's part of applying to a college nursing program. Some people get in and some people don't.

I'm going through the program now and it's tough, but good. The school is growing and the administration seems to care about their students. I'm pretty particular about colleges as I've already attended a 4-year university, and I'd recommend this school. Do yourself a favor and think on your own. Go check the program out for yourself instead of listening to a bitter reject.

I have been extremely misled by the school with regards to their placement of students in externships. After months of constant communications with them trying to get an externship, which I was told would not be too difficult given my 3.95GPA, I was finally told that the only externship site they could find was 30 miles away, even though I had been told many times before that the site would be close to my home and the school in NJ, or in Manhattan or Brooklyn. The drive to/from the site was over 4 hours and the tolls and gas cost me ~$30 (it would have taken me over 3 hours each way with public transportation) but I accepted the externship because I have been unable to even obtain a job as I keep waiting to finish my studies and the school keeps claiming that there are no other sites available. However, I was told during my first day that the next day I would have to go to a site 65 miles away (~3 hour drive each way across state lines) and that on my third day I would have to go to a site 130 miles away (~4 hour drive each way, also across state lines). More importantly, the duties I was given during my first day barely relate to my studies and I am now sure that if I continue my externship in this manner then I will not obtain the hand-on practice I need to get a job in my field.

The school leads students to believe that upon successful completion of classes they will be placed in suitable externships but the staff has been completely unhelpful, all of my communications with them have been negative and my requests have been pretty much brushed off. I have asked them for other sites as I cannot drive 4-8 hours/day and spend ~$30 in tolls and gas/day just to get to the sites but they refuse to keep searching for me and are now telling me to go to those far away sites or sign a waiver stating I refuse to go to the sites they found for me. After all of the hard work I put into my studies I am now at a loss and feel that the school has left me with no real options to finish my studies.
