WARNING program is not JCERT accredited! This puts you at a huge disadvantage in a highly competitive job market. Also the program director is under qualified and makes things overly difficult. She does not even have a graduate level education and is very new to the job. She'll assign reading each week (100 pages plus) and test on it each Friday, without ever touching on most of the material that ends up in the test. Shop around... you can do better.

Over all, Great Experience. This school is not for everyone. The Gen eds are accelerated so you learn a normal semester in 4 weeks. I loved it because I hate school and was able to finish quickly and I maintained a 4.0 in Gen Eds. The actual nursing program was different. 4 month long semesters instead of 4 weeks and pretty tough but i was still able tough maintain As & Bs for final grades. Our class had it rough - new instructors, unfocused instructors, instructors leaving - in the middle of the semesters. A lot of our clinical time was cut and we were left without preceptors in the last semester and given some lame excuse as to why. Also, this is a private school, not public, which makes it much more expensive. I had the GI Bill so I didn't have to worry about that. One thing that was great was that they make your schedule, no waiting in line for classes that may be full. Another thing was that they handled all the financial stuff and submitted everything for me. One piece of advice, buy your books on line and ask the class ahead of you what they used. You don't use about half the books on the list each semester. Huge waste of money. VA book stipend doesn't cover it.

I wanted to ask if the Nursing Program prepared you and got you ready for the NCLEX? I am highly considering an non-traditional school, as I have to work and go to school to even live day to day.How many months were used of your GI Bill? I have 18 left- Long story short, I felt that a degree in Healthcare Management was the RIGHT choice at the time- 18 months later- I Don't agree :) Thanks for the help, Im really considering their nursing program and wanted some REAL feedback

Yes, the program will prepare you for the NCLEX. The actual program is 16 mo but keep in mind you need to have pre-reqs also. With that in mind, if you have been rated by the VA, you may be entitled to other compensation. I plan to go back and finish my BSN with other entitlements. Like you, I started out in another field wasting time and money. Feeel free to ask any other Qs. I'll answer what i can. Hope this helps.

I am a veteran looking at this school for nursing as well. I wanted to know how this schools nursing program stacks up next to some of the neighboring state and community colleges around.

One of the most important things to look for is if the school is accredited or not, Keiser is. Eastern Florida State University, formerly Brevard Community College, is not. The last class they graduated told me horrible things about the program: no pharmacology class, a ton of self teaching, teachers quit, among other stuff. I've taken classes both places and the quality of instructors are hit or miss. In this area, I think UFC and Keiser are the best schools for nursing. At UFC you'll finish with a BSN; Keiser with an ASN or ADN -same thing. I'll finish my BSN while I work. Hope this helps. Feel free to ask other questions.

I would not waste my money on Keiser. It is extremely expensive and you end up having to teach yourself due to the lack of good and professional professors. My time at that school was miserable and I even had a professor that was so unprofessional and terrible that it made me almost want to quit college because of her. This is not a good school. Yeah you will get a degree but that's about it. On top of leaving with an extreme amount of debt, you leave and don't even get contacted for job opportunities "as promised" in their scheme to get people to apply. As my first college experience I will definitely say that this is the worst school ever. Think twice before you give them your time and your money.

I started off in the PTA program in May of 2014. The program itself is 11months long and accelerated. I was dismissed during Kinesiology on my first attempt in this program. I had 48 muscles to learn within one week of the upper extremity. I didn't think of it being a scam at that particular moment. I did the re-entry process and had 3 months to wait to re-enter the program in March 2015. I got done with the re-entry processing before Thanksgiving of 2014 and would be restarting the program in March of 2015. I had more time to go over the muscles and the OIA and Ns of each muscle that I knew would be coming up for comps. To make a long story short I was successful in Kinesiology and progressed all the way to Modalities. The whole time I maintained a 3.19 GPA. I felt I was actually going to complete this program. Unfortunately, the school hired on a new instructor because they lost a previous instructor and took nearly a year to fill that position. This instructor had no control over her class. A very unorganized instructor that was easily flustered when you would ask questions. When time came for learning ultrasound modalities, we were not able to touch the equipment until the day just before a lab competency. I hardly think 6 hours is hardly a sufficient amount of time to prepare for a lab competency. I ended up failing the comp on my third try which has now permanently dismissed me from the program. Then the program director emails me the following day to come speak to the Dean about my educational options. I am not so sure about re-starting a new major in an allied health program at this university . I have read most of the reviews on this site and see the word SCAM pop up for this particular university in most all A.S programs. The Dean seems to want to push me just into another program. I have got my transcripts and looking at other options. Just really discouraging to know that a person with a B average is put out of the program and students in the 70% range are allowed to continue on. Now I'm stuck with 8 months of education and not able to do anything with it , along to facing close to $20k in debt with np degree. I think I better look into other PTA programs at a state college before ever returning to Keiser

My personal experience at Keiser wasn't good at all. The only good memory that I have from here are my classmates and one of the teachers which was very professional and dedicated . But school overall was pretty bad the coordinator for the PTA program make most of the students cry just because she feels like she own the world and also students personal life's . Financial Aid also a big disaster . I don't know how it works for other programs at the school but for the PTA in the first month of class they give you 2 test that not even are suppose to give you, they test you about another topic" Kinesiology" and the first class is Introduction to PTA , the point is that if you don't pass does 2 test with more than 70% they dismiss you from the program . Not recommend this school at least for this program. There are many school which are accredited as them by CAPTE and without the ridiculous policies.

This is a horrible school, out of personal experience DON'T GO HERE! I graduated high school a semester early to be able to get a head start on college. I remembered that a representative from Keiser had visited my high school a couple years back so I contacted the school (in Tampa) and spoke to an admissions counselor (Shannel). She didn't give me any real information, she was basically just trying to get me to start as soon as possible. While I was discussing future career options. she was basically just telling me that I would only be a good fit for Business Administration just on that sole meeting with her. I ended up changing my major a couple times because every time I said I wanted to do Nursing she would tell me that it wasn't a good fit for me. I started school and only finished one class because the teaching was horrible. You basically opened the book and taught yourself while the professor took roll! That's another thing, if you missed one day of school, about ten people would call, text, and email you to make sure you were coming back ( that seemed quite weird). After I finished the class, I had to do a "review" which was fraudulent because all the answers were automatically saved on the computer. Nevertheless, after that class I never went back. Now I am trying to pursue a degree with another school but I need a transcript from Keiser in order to register. Keiser says that it's on hold because I owe almost $9,000 in tuition for a semester even though I only took one class. I did have financial aid and a scholarship through Keiser but the Bursars office said I no longer qualified since I had withdrawn. So basically the only option they are giving me is to go back to a horrible school or stay without a degree. I have called the school many times and no one seems to care about my situation or is trying to help me. They didn't inform me about any of the consequences of withdrawing, they were just pushing me to sign papers left and right to get me into class as soon as possible. All in all, just don't choose this school!

I actually graduated from Keiser in 2011 with Nuc Med degree. Keiser pushed me into the program saying I would make certain amount of money. Never found a job, NUC MED IS SATURATED and Keiser continues to allow this program, telling students they will assist with job placements. YEA RIGHT. I went back to Keiser pursuing Nursing program, got accepted. I was suppose to start in May in Tampa. The Friday before classes start I get a phone call saying I owe $5000 from Lakeland. I was taking online classes towards my BSN and I withdrew from Lakeland campus so I could attend the campus in Tampa ( because there nursing program accepted me before Lakeland) . No one told me I would be penalize because I decided to go to the same exact school but a different campus.

Have you managed to fix your situation? I'm in a similar situation where i withdrew from there and the new college i want to go to said that i need a letter from Keiser in order to be able to fully register with them. Either that or get at least a letter of non-attendance, since they accessed my transcripts.

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

This is the WORST school I've ever attended, Scam is a understatement. I am a military veteran using the GI Bill to further my education and these SCAM artist are taking advantage of people for personal growth. I was studying radiologic technology and my total amount for my tuition was a little over 16k. So I signed up with my GI benefits, and after 3 months of waiting and paying for books out of my own pocket (which I've NEVER done before at any other school I've attended) I ask the finance department what's the deal. They never even submitted my benefits to the VA. And I withdrew from the school for medical reasons and now I supposedly owe them 8k out of 16k for a 2 year degree that I attended 3 months of and its their fault they didn't submit my benefits. This place is a SCAM to the fullest. Now I'm at Everest University and I Love IT. Best vibe and experience I've ever had. Not to mention I'm actually learning something from the teachers who talk about the actual class work instead of how their weekend was and not make me teach myself and expect me to pay them 16k. So take my advice and stay away from keiser.

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

I started off in the Medical Assistant program with the understanding I would need to secure a site for my externship/perceptorship within the first 6months. 3 months go by and an academic advisor calls me to find our if I was successful or not. I told her no I was not. She proceeded to tell me, "oh yeah, your state is very difficult to secure a facility. We have only been successful in one facility." The facility is 3hours away from me. So for 3months I would have to drive 3 hours there and 3 hours back, find daycare for my two kids, come up with gas money all to volunteer (no pay) for 3 months in order to graduate. So I switched my degree to Health Services Administration just so I could graduate with a degree of some sort. I get to the end once again and am told I must start a new financial aide package for my LAST class. Financial aid will not cover my last class so I must come up with $1700 out of my own pocket or qualify through a private lender. Neither of which I can do. So $30,000 of student loans later, 2 years of my time online, I have NOTHING to show for it.

Yep.. this school only wants the money. They can care less about your personal life. And beware to others. If you trust someone like a professor with your words, they will spread plenty of gossip. This school is full of drama. But, I worry not. They will get their Karma. Each and every person at that school. I ain't paying a dime back either. They can go suck it.

I started Keiser after leaving Florida Career College in 2013. I love this school and the financial aid people helped me find enough money to cover tuition without paying out of pocket, even with my bad credit score. I start the core nursing program on May 4th at the West Palm Beach campus and I have heard nothing but great things about the professors and the program itself. Yes, there is a dress code and yes it is expensive but it is worth it. School is one step in order to get your life together and for the other people complaining about the dress code and expenses need to realize that they are not being made to come to school.

This is an awful school. Terrible experience. Don't bother going to this school unless you want to be treated like a high school student. You are surrounded in a class full of ignorant people, who instead of working together with you, bully you like you were in grade school. Not saying everyone was this way, but my class had absolutely no respect for anyone. My teacher in front of everyone asked why I got the grade that I got on a test, which was an 85. Mind you, I have children at home to care for, and I was too tired to study. Not that it was everyone else's business to know anyway, but, she blasted that question in front of everyone while returning the graded exams. And, in one other instance we got into an argument and she chose to ask everyone in the class, if what I was saying was true. What went through my mind was, first of all.. is this argument between you and I, or you, I, and the class? By the way, there are completely unprofessional, and rude staff that likes to gossip while you take tests (*in the library*). Almost all the computers are damaged, and wifi sucks. Bathrooms stink all the time, and there is mildew/mold everywhere. Unbelievably, we were asked to go in and clean a classroom, before using it for the rest of the term. Are you kidding? For the tuition that we pay, we are required to clean up a classroom that was left a mess by the people who were there before us? Let's not forget to mention the one roach that crossed the hallway once. Vending machines in the "cafeteria" ate up your money, and it was a pain in the ass to get it back. Last but not least, the icing on the cake. I graduated in February 1, 2015. Since then, it has been up to Keiser University to send my transcripts or what ever document is required to the appropriate organization so that I could take my Registered medical exam and my X-ray license (Basic machine operator) test. We are now in April and I have not been able to take either exam because Keiser University Orlando forgot to send my transcripts. I already fixed my problem with my Registered Medical Assisting exam (application was rejected because of my transcripts not being sent from keiser), and I just received a letter from the department of health saying that they also rejected my X-ray license application, because they are missing my transcripts as well. So, please decide very well if you would like to attend Keiser. It is very costly, for the very poor treatment you are in for. Not all the campuses may be this way, but just do your research. This was just my experience here in the Keiser University Orlando Campus.

These people have rang my phone off the hook since I made the mistake of inquiring about a program. Their tuition is ridiculously priced. Apparently it is a private school, but I sincerely do not like being harassed. I really do not appreciate receiving a call at 8:50 PM on a school day. My kids are already in bed at this time. I have finally blocked them as I am sick of their constant calls. Must need the business pretty bad!
