If you looking for an good LPN program please run the other way. This school is only interested in your money. They are FRAUDS that do not care if you pass or fail. The more you fail the better for them they can rake in your money. They were convicted of fraud in 2006. (http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/oig/invtreports/nj042006.html) The previous owner Victor Mungai Kamunge was found guilty of fraud and since then has left the school in charge with her wife Eunice and Winnie Kamunge. He is still very much involved in all the daily activities of the school just at a remote location. Please do not waste your time or money with these people. They do not care and are not out to help anyone.

I am currently attending this institute and strongly agree with the above comment about this institute. They constantly failed just so they can charge them $500 to repeat the class. The secretary and Miss Winnie sell midterm and final exams questions to students. I wouldn't recommend anyone to this institute

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't waste your attending MERIT TECH INSTITUTE. Big scam going on in that school. As a former student, my advice is RUN AWAY FROM MERIT. Unqualified teachers, family scam business and time wasting.

THIS IS THE MOST TERRIBLE SCHOOL. I PASSED ALL MY CLASSES AND NOW THEY'VE IMPLEMENTED A NEW RULE WHERE WE NEED TO PASS 3 EXIT EXAMS BEFORE GOING TO TAKE THE NCLEX. THE PROGRAM IS NEVER 12 MONTHS IT'S MORE LIKE 18 OR 24 MONTHS .. STUDENTS HAVE MIDTERMS/ FINALS AND CLASS EXAMS I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY GET IT, BUT THEY DO. PROFESSORS ARE ALL UNQUALIFIED! ABUTEH STINKS!!

Please check this letter from the board of nursing. They are no longer allowed to require the exit exam as part of the graduation requirement. It can only count as 10% of the final grade. If you are still in the school please READ... any issues call the board of nursing in NJ immediately. Spread the word to any Merit students. Good Luck!

I AGREE. THIS INSTITUTE DOES NOT DELIVER GOOD RESULTS! I WOULD RUN THE OTHER WAY! MUNGAI KAMUNGE TAKES THE MONEY AND GOES TO CHINA IN ORDER TO TRY TO GET MORE MONEY FOR THE SCHOOL. EVERYTHING THAT MERIT TECHNICAL SCHOOL IS TELLING YOU IS ALL LIES! MUNGAI KAMUNGE TAKES FEMALE STUDENTS TO HIS OFFICE AND TELLS THEM THAT IF YOU WANT TO GRADUATE, YOU HAVE TO FIRST HAVE SEX WITH ME AND PERFORM SEXUAL ACTS.
MUNGAI KAMUNGE IS A RAPIST AND A PEDOFILE. HE ALSO HAS SEX WITH HIS DAUGHERS WINNIE AND CAROL WHILE HIS WIFE EUNICE KAMUNGE IS NOT AROUND.
THE FBI IS GOING TO SHUT DOWN THIS INSTITUTION AND THE FEDS IS GOING TO CONFIGSCATE OF ALL THEIR POSSESSIONS.

I am graduate Merit it does take 18 months instead of 12 months but if u focus and not caught up in the hype of other students you will pass through.I think all this neg that are posted are from students who want a free ride, nursing is never easy.Yes it is challenging but thats nursing. They do require you to do 3 exit exams before u graduate. In my opinion that makes u feel more confident taking the boards. I am a proud graduate of class 2009. they had a 100% pass at the board for that year. Merit just keep you on your toes academically wise.I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANY STUDENTS WHO ARE WILLING TO STUDY HARD EAT, BREATHE MERIT FOR THE NEXT.12-18 MONTHS WHICH EVER COMES FIRST AND CAN AFFORD THE TUITION.

Go Merit! Best school. i am currently a student at Merit. I am finishing with Med-surgical 1. So far so good. The review professor Dr Abuteh is very dedicated. The school gives you the material to succeed (you can either use it or lose it)

Its a lie. Merit is a complete Fraud. they have a new administrator called Lee she is terrible. Students are leaving the school now. That school would make u to regret life and beyond. do not step ur foot in there or else u would regret the day u were born. some ppl have it easy becuz they sleep with professor thts y they tell u its a good school to go. ITS A BIG LIE. Students r not passing midterm and finals not to even talk of exit so its up to u which ever one u choose.

I don't know. I am looking for a good LPN program. I am looking past this one, however.

Merit is a terrible unprofessional practical nursing school. It's the unprofessional attitude that have left them with no Administrator. Ms Lee ( ex. admin) left the school after making sure that more than halve of the Med Surg II student class of Feb 2013 failed the Final exam. Merit is a big fraud. Moreover, I can't belief it's being run by Africans.(Kenyan and Nigerian- Obuteh). Obuteh is there to make life miserable for students, always pretending to help student. Actually, I believe he is the one that will run that school down. He is very rude and arrogant.
