Testimonials

Larock Academy gave me the perfect jumpstart to my nursing career! Ms Hilda, my instructor, made me feel confident and comfortable. I’m so glad I decided to come here and wouldn’t refer anyone to anywhere else. It was an awesome class, and I will be recommending it to every pre-nursing student I know. LeeAnn is also so helpful and made me feel very informed about the program. I love it here! Thank you Larock Academy!

“Larock is the best place to be. The environment is without discrimination of race or religion.  I salute Ms. Beth, my instructor. You are indeed the best instructor I have ever come across.  You offer the best you can, always going the extra mile.  You are an amazing instructor.  You have made me proud; may you receive many blessings

No one should ask me how I feel on this last day of mine at Larock. My answer goes without saying that I feel very great. I have just discovered a very instructive environment. My knowledge has tremendously improved thanks to my instructor as well as my class mates. My curiosity for social interaction and my quest for knowledge has made me a happy man.

I have become an ambassador of this awesome institution. I recommend anyone fond of knowledge and conviviality to take a step at Larock.

I now claim wings and roots for my long journey in the field of my dreams.

“I recently relocated to Virginia where I was just hired as a Medical Assistant for a rather large Private Primary/Urgent Care Company that spans from Virginia to New Jersey.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to have been given this opportunity to work in this position for this company. I would not be able to do this if it were not for the training I had at Larock. After taking the Phlebotomy Training in 2011/2012, I enrolled in the EKG program (2014) where I again gained more knowledge thanks to Larock’s programs and I followed it up with the Paramedical Examiner Workshop as well. I am so thankful that Larock was there for me! It’s hard enough changing careers but with the training I received from Larock, relocating to another State, I felt confident enough to land the job I truly wanted.
Because of Larock Healthcare Academy, the staff, and the amazing instructors I am doing what I love to do. I definitely would recommend Larock!”

It has been a wonderful and pleasant learning experience. I feel that I have received the knowledge and training needed to begin a career in the field of Phlebotomy.

I have enjoyed the technique and approach that instructor Cheryl Hitchcock has provided. Also with smaller classes, I believe has helped tremendously with more hands-on and a more personal experience in achieving knowledge and technique.

Kelly Smallwood is an exceptional instructor. She created a fun and educational classroom, which make it an awesome atmosphere. She did everything possible to get the information needed to answer our questions. My niece came in to class for us to draw on. At the end of the class day, she had decided she wanted to attend class and was requesting Kelly to be her instructor. I think that this says a lot about Kelly as an instructor to have a visitor decide during that short time to take the class. I look forward to doing an internship with Kelly Smallwood.

My experience was one that I could not have imagined. Being the oldest in the class, I was at first a little intimidated. I didn’t think I could keep up with the young minds, but with Kelly’s help, support and enthusiasm, along with my classmate’s encouraging words, it gave me the strength to have stronger faith in myself. Thank you, Larock Academy, for this wonderful opportunity to become a Phlebotomist.

There I was, almost 50 years old and I didn’t know what I was going to do. After 22 years working in an office and getting laid off twice, I decided that I needed to change my career completely. During my job search, I had run across Larock Healthcare Academy and decided to check them out. After meeting with Brock, I decided it was the right school or me and decided to sign up.

The class schedule was very convenient in the evenings and the instructors made it very easy to get the material. Each class day had a study guide that we could fill in with the correct information which made it so easy to go back and study for the quizzes and tests. The hands-on skills practice helped me a lot when preparing for the State Test, as well as the clinical days which helped when working with the residents.

Even at 50, I surprised myself and was able to pass not only the class but also my State Test. If I can pass, I know anyone can do it. I would highly recommend Larock Healthcare Academy!

After visiting several schools, I am blessed to say that my final decision to proceed with Larock Academy was the best decision for a number of reasons.

The smaller classroom size, ease of communicating with the staff and their willingness to help all stands out. Every effort has been extended for the successful completion of the course as well as after we leave Larock to pursue our careers.

I would highly recommend Larock Healthcare Academy to anyone interested in a career in the healthcare field.

— Marilyn R.

Before attending Larock, I was still unsure on what kind of career to pursue in my life. I knew that I had an interest in the medical field, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do. The first day of Phlebotomy class was a little overwhelming, but Ms. Kocina made us feel right at home. You can tell that she really has a passion for teaching and if she ever didn’t know the answer to something, she would always find out for us.

As this class is drawing to an end, I am very happy, yet sad at the same time. I learned so much in this class and it definitely changed my perspective to my future. I now am going to go on and complete my EKG class so I can become a Patient Care Technician, while I’m working my way through school.

I plan on moving forward towards a nursing degree and I thank Larock Academy as a whole for helping me get my foot in the door as a Healthcare professional.

— Courtney R.

My experience at Larock Healthcare Academy has been one that I never expected. If you would have asked me a year ago what I would be doing, I would have never imagined I would be doing something in the healthcare field. Wanting to make a career change and often giving it some great thought, I chose Larock to help me in making those life changes.

Taking the Phlebotomy class and then EKG has been one of the best life choices I have made. My love and compassion has assured me that I have made the right choice.

I am now currently doing an externship in a doctor’s office and learning more than I ever would have dreamed. Larock instructors, staff and students have given me the drive, motivation and dream to reach those expected possibilities in my life.

I would recommend Larock Academy for advancing anyone’s career in healthcare.

— Jim D.

When I first came to Larock, I was nervous about drawing blood. The relaxed atmosphere, helpful instructor, and plenty of draw time helped me get over that fear. I feel very well prepared to use the skills and knowledge I obtained from Larock.

I had the best teacher, Catherine Kocina. She is a very good teacher who knows her stuff. I love Larock and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I look forward to participation in another class to further my knowledge and skills as a future healthcare provider.
