Jacksonville University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
Loved my time at Jacksonville University for my BSN. In fact, I'm preparing to start my MSN currently. The 8 week classes are tough, but fair and I felt they adequately prepared me for my degree. In addition to preparing me for my role in nursing. I truly have no complaints about the online classes and processes as the technology was easy to use, the books were reasonable, the teachers were fair and provided excellent instruction. Overall, I would strongly recommend attending Jacksonville for a BSN.
Located along the bank of the St. John's River, surrounded by century old oak trees, along with professional and knowledgeable staff, it no question why JU is referred to as The Harvard of the South. Students graduate with the skills necessary to succeed in their chosen career path or advance their education. JU supports an unsurpassable learning environment including a writing lab, tutoring services, mentor support and so forth. Students can broaden their horizons in a study abroad class offered for over 20 different countries. I have gained not only a top notch education, but friendships and support groups that will last a lifetime. Go Fins!
The program at Jacksonville University is really good. The advisors who help you sign up for classes and help design your class schedule really take the time understand and work with your schedule and rigors of life. The classes were manageable and I learned a lot. The instructors were always available for questions and they really seemed to care about their students.
Has a great online program. Instructors are easy to communicate with.
It was a great experience if you're looking for individual attention and education. I was not a number. My professors and classmates knew me.
The campus at Jacksonville University was beautiful. It was always so relaxing to sit under the giant oak trees and study. The atmosphere was small and intimate, which made it easier to participate in class. I would recommend this college to anyone interested in the arts or sciences since it is a liberal arts college.
I've just finished my 4th MSN course and I honestly haven't learned much. The concept is that the instructors have doctoral level degrees. The problem is that so far, not a single instructor has done ANY teaching. There are prefabricated lessons. You respond to the assignments by posting on a discussion board. You are also required to write research papers. There are no tests. Teachers are supposed to be available via email but don't hold your breath waiting for a response. When your papers are graded, you don't get them back. You may get a couple of sentences on a post called "professor's comments" but you aren't getting a paper back so can't improve since you can't see what you did wrong. I am still trying to figure out why this school is ranked so highly. So far, I'm really not impressed.
Thus, for my experience at Jacksonville University Online (JUSON) has been great I have been able to incorporate the theoretical knowledge into work. The Professor are always available for virtue hours if needed and your emails are responded to in an proper time. If you need help there are study groups rooms that can be arrange or you just post your question on the discussion board. I would Personally recommend JUSON to anyone.
