Creighton University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (15)
Creighton University was overall a very good experience. It was an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program that was only 11 months. That made the program very intense and rigorous, but also enabled the students to start their careers quickly. A lot of the professors were very helpful, compassionate, and wonderful nurses. Some came across as though they'd rather be researching than teaching and seemed a bit out of touch with the students. The material taught in lectures was usually very succinct and easy to comprehend. Many of the professors used real-world experiences they had been through to help us as the students understand the material and remember it. My fellow students are really what got me through this challenging experience. The year I attended this program, there were less than 50 people in my class. This size of cohort made it easy to get to know everyone. Students came from across the United States so we had a great group from many different cities and states. The clinical experience was very good overall. Once I starting working as an RN I had the usual new nurse jitters but felt confident and competent. I recently applied to graduate school and a few professors were excited and happy to write me recommendations for school. I would not recommend working during the Accelerated BSN program as it would be extremely challenging. One last note would be that this is a private Catholic school. With that came a small amount of religion incorporated in classes, as well as a larger tuition bill. I personally did not feel any religion was being forced on me. The school just refers to some Catholic values when talking about nursing.
Creighton University's Jesuit values cultivate a tight knit community, which values well rounded students, who take rigorous classes, participate in extracurricular activities and volunteer both locally as well as internationally. I studied abroad for a semester in the Dominican Republic at Creighton's Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC). Creighton's ILAC center provides opportunities for students to study (medicine, social justice, history, spanish) and live abroad on a short or long term basis. My experience at ILAC formed me into the woman that I am today and is the reason that I am pursuing my Masters in Social Work. Professors not only have strong academic credentials but also have extensive experience in their fields and genuine care for their students; Iam still regularly in contact with a handful of professors. I graduated from Creighton four years ago, but I still call it home.
Creighton University offers rigorous coursework and outstanding teachers. I was a biology major and I was very satisfied with most teachers in this department. Outside of quality of courses, Creighton also offers guidance for students through career advising and counseling. This is a school that you can truly feel cared about as a student. Some schools make you feel as though you are just another number and I have never felt that way at Creighton.
I now currently in graduate school 10 years later pursing a MHA/MSN degree. Creighton teaching methods were consistent and rigorous even for a BSN program. I considered them the best BSN program in the Midwest. Quality instruction earned me a 4.0, valedictorian. I was able to tutor the other students. I wished we have more clinical hours. The first 2 years of a BSN program are spend in the 'general studies' portion and being a Jesuit college it required taking classes with 9 hours with a religious focus. The last 2 years were the nursing portion. I was hungry for knowledge. It prepared me for a 400 hour preceptor ship in the pediatric intensive care unit. The instructors were listened to student questions and responded appropriately. Class sizes were small which allowed for group discussion. Campus itself was beautiful.
Creighton University is a great choice for people who wish to return to school to complete their degree. The curriculum is challenging but the entire University staff and fellow classmates are very supportive. The online program allows me to balance work with school easily as I can complete the assignments at a time that is cohesive to my work and family's schedule. I am so happy that I returned to school and look forward to graduation ao that I can begin the Master's Program at Creighton.
I liked it very much. It was a great experience. I would try to pursue another degree there.
Creighton University prepared me for graduate school by providing rigorous curriculum and challenging me to intertwine ethics and science. The small number of students allowed for one on one contact with professors as well as undergraduate research opportunities.
Great university with a foundation of strong values. Excellent faculty that strive to provide the best, evidence based education and truly care about the students. There are tons of events and student organizations that provide opportunity for students to get involved.
Creighton was a great experience for undergrad and Omaha proved to be a really fun city. The school has a community that is really hard to articulate but was amazing. I graduated five years ago now, but just recently was back in Omaha visiting with a bunch of my best friends from college. I keep in contact with a number of professors as well. Creighton is an up and coming school and I think the degree will only increase in value as time goes on.
Creighton University was a great school for an education. In your freshman year the core classes can be large, but as you move into major specific courses the class size decreases. Smaller class sizes give students a chance to interact one on one with the instructor, which can be very helpful. Most teachers are very willing to be a mentor.
