As a former Army Sergeant I was being held back for promotions in the corporate world for not having a degree. Not only did Bellevue make the application extremely easy, they went out of their way to help me. My first class is finished, and although it took a lot of study on my part, I am excited with the results. The assignments hit the mark as far as real world applications. I have excellent class mates so far and Bellevue University has exceeded my expectations.

Great school and made online learning easy. Expensive classes and in order to get your Bachelor's you have to take a extra class that has nothing to do with your degree plan. The University's way of making money when it categorizes itself as Non-Profit.

Hi There,

I graduated from Bellevue last year and i am now thinking about starting my master degree. Can you please share your insights on this particular masters degree that might be helpful to a prospective student?

Thank you.

Regardless of you professional experience, I feel you will have a complete appreciation for the content and application of this program.

I have found it extremely beneficial and highly recommend the course of study. I look forward to completing the program in November.

The course content was applicable to my career. However when I was recruited by Bellevue University, my first question was "is the BSN course accredited?" I was told that Bellevue University was an accredited college and holds a high reputation for its accreditation. I just finished the BSN course and after the course was over, we were told that the course was NOT ACCREDITED. I invested a huge amount of money and time (which I am running out of both) in an education that will get me nowhere in the future of further education. Bellevue has not said what they intend to do about this situation but as of this date, I DO NOT RECOMMEND this University. Their integrity is not as it was presented. Thanks Bellevue for a lot of wasted time and money!

Very Disappointed,

I assume when you say that the "course" wasn't accredited, you're referring to the degree program. Also, I assume you're referring to programmatic accreditation as opposed to the university itself (the school is regionally accredited). Since it's nursing, my guess would be that you were looking for a nursing program that's CCNE accredited. I don't mean to sound insensitive, but why didn't you do the research before enrolling in the program? It was my understanding that they are/were working toward this accreditation (which is entirely normal given that it's a relatively new program and the accreditation process can take quite some time to complete). In the future, I would suggest finding a program that already has the accreditation you're seeking and ensuring ahead of time that the school you're attending does indeed possess that accreditation (not just taking the word of some admissions counselor). Just my two cents.

SORELY disappointed!

I selected Bellevue over other alternatives because of the program offerings and the seemingly knowledgeable admissions staff. I will admit that the courses themselves and my cohort interaction were great, but the "support" staff (financial aid, advising, etc.) are absolutely useless. When I enrolled, they bent over backwards to get things taken care of and completed so I could get started. Staff called back when they said they would. Things got done as promised. Now, in my second (and final) year, not so much. Staff never answers calls and makes it impossible to reach them because if you miss their call, you're stuck in an endless voicemail hell. You ask questions that advisors should be able to answer and instead of admitting they don't understand what you're asking or know the correct answer, they just tell you anything to be able to close the interaction. I'm guessing they must be assessed on their expediency in resolving issues (whether they really did or not) I was nickle and dimed over the conversion of my previous coursework (which was assigned a numeric "value" due to the age of the courses rather than being equated course for course). Had I taken this at face value, it would have caused me to take more courses because having only 2/3 of the requirement met (even though I took a FULL COURSE) isn't enough to graduate. I had to argue and fight to get them to make manual exceptions to get it approved. The capper was having my financial aid held up because of an alleged issue with my FAFSA, which turned out to actually be an issue with my HUSBAND'S information. I should have been finishing my pointless Kirkpatrick series so I can graduate next spring, but I am STILL waiting. And the follow up my FA rep promised? NON-EXISTENT! Like others, I also discovered that there are issues with compatibility of my degree with my chosen field. I made clear when I applied that I wanted to do Social Work and continue on to my doctorate. I was assured the program they steered me to would fulfill that goal. Turns out their clueless reps were wrong, just making up any answer to get me to sign on and in my state I can't even apply for licensure with this degree. I would NOT recommend this school if you aren't prepared to babysit them and do all the work to make sure you get what you paid for!

The entrance process is very smooth. Qualified instructors, and the online program is very high tech and easy to navigate. There is a lot of writing an essay testing. In addition, the price is reasonable for such a respected University.

I have taken the BS in HCM and the MHA program at this school. I have many years of experience in healthcare related occupations prior to my attending this school. I thought the BS program was spot-on for what was needed in my current position. I thought the MHA program would be less difficult due to my experience. Wow ... I was wrong! The MHA program really opened my eyes to many medical functions that I was not really aware of in the past. It was also very challenging. The instructors are top-notch for both programs and the instruction is totally appropriate for what real-world healthcare managers need. This is a good school…support staff was also excellent.

First I have to explain my rating. I placed the financial services at a 4 star level because during my tenure the system changed. Initially it was difficult to navigate or find scholarships, but after the changes were made it was very simple to find scholarships, make payments, etc.! Now, the school. I cannot say enough good things about Bellevue. I returned to Bellevue for my Master's after having completed my Bachelor's there, and then making the horrible mistake to attend another university. The other university was the exact opposite of Bellevue. Where at Bellevue the instructors are involved, understanding, and helpful, the other university professors were not. The Bellevue system was easy to navigate, comprehensive, and offered so many resources for students, and the other university did not. Although I was in a distance learning program, I never felt the distance as the instructors were just an e-mail or phone call away, and were excellent at answering questions through these mediums. They supported me in every way possible, even some offering personal recommendations for scholarships and jobs. They truly cared about their students, and wanted nothing more than for us to succeed. The program I attended was stellar. There were virtual exercises that allowed me to understand what I was learning with hands-on tools, I was able to use some of the most popular products in the industry, and the texts were informative and engrossing. The classes were varied, some highly technical, others writing intensive. The entire program is very much structured to make the student well rounded and well educated. In addition to earning my Bachelor's and Master's at this university I have also referred several students to this school. They also find the curriculum engaging, and the learning model the best they have ever experienced. I cannot say enough good things about this school or encourage others enough to attend this school. I feel this is a school where everyone could truly learn, not just graduate.

I earned an MBA from BU. It was a great experience! It was fun and challenging. The best thing about the program was learning through experiential learning. Professors utilized real world simulations very well and getting to work with a diverse group of professionals was excellent. When I graduated I walked away confident and prepared.
