Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
I had no problems attending Keiser online for medical assisting. I am doing sucessfully, though hard at times, but I just got on the Honor Roll with a GPA of 3.60. My grades I earned on my on. Yeah it isn't cheap but I knew this before I started here. Does anyone read what they sign?
The only problem I have is that my Preceptor Coordinator who is the one that handles clinicals. I found a place that was willing to accept me for my preceptorship but needed Keiser to contact them. They have never dealt with Kesier before. I called my coordinator and she said to email her the information, which I thought she could have worte it down right then.
I email her the infor and waited with no response for over a week. She claims she did not get the email and send again, so I did. Guess what she didn't get that one either but funny thing is she gets the other email of me complaining. Whay can't she just take the information over the phone and call to dicuss with my choice of a clinical site.
I am very frustrated because the deadline has just passed to get the site. She said from the beginning if we needed help to contact her and she'll help. This is all I needed was for her to contact the medical office. All of my professor have helped if needed with no problem, my financial aid officer is helpful.
I also recieved a scholarship and grant which pays a nice amount of my tution. There are other sites complaining about the cost of tution from Kesier, and one said she will end having to pay over $400 a month for a $3400.
My husband owes over #30,000 in college loans and we are paying less than that but can't say the same when finishes his Masters. I owe credit cards more than $3400 with a sky high interest and pay less than $400 a month. Other than not getting helped with contacting my site for clinicals the school isn't bad.
Keiser University has one of the best programs in Sonography. The teachers and director are very helpful and professional. I think the program is very hard, but it has a very good reputation out there since hospitals prefer Keiser graduates.
Short and simple!!!!Dont waist your time here. I went to the location in Town and Country, Miami and it was a disaster. The Adm.Dir. was the one that I first approach when i step one foot in the office . He was arogant and with no touch at all to my questions on the massage therapy degree. I had to walk away and go to another institution.
Peolpe like this shouldnt be around people that wants to move foward in life...He will destroy your dreams in 5 min. Dont waist your time..
I have read everyone’s review. What I don’t understand is why there are so many negative things said about Keiser’s Nursing program director. The program director was an awesome teacher and an incredible director. She is the reason that I stayed at Keiser and graduated. The disgruntled students that want to say that the program director is the reason that they failed well it is simply not true.
We are responsible for our own success or failure. You alone are responsible if you did not pass or learn.
Another thing , if the program director truly padded grades then you would have graduated with your class . Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I feel confident that no grades were padded. Grades were not given freely as some students may have expected ,they were in fact earned, just as our RN pins were earned on April 23rd.
I was never more proud of myself and my fellow classmates than the day the program director pinned us and we became nurses. I stayed up countless nights studying and doing what I had to do to achieve my nursing degree.
I was tutored by the program director through out the entire program. She was always available to make sure that I understood the material. I resent the implication that grades were padded I have worked very hard and I am incredibly proud of my accomplishments at Keiser Lakeland
Yes Keiser is a private school ,but as such the class sizes were incredibly small and the individualizes attention was always available. Did I spend countless hours on my own studying and preparing? well of course I did! It is nursing school for goodness sakes!
I maintained a 3.67 GPA.I never failed an ATI exam nor did I fail my NCLEX predictor Exam, in fact I scored in the top 97th percentile in the nation for passing the NCLEX on my first attempt. Not too shabby for a private school! I guess that I must have learned something at Keiser. I feel confident in my abilities to be an effective and efficient part of any health care team.
Keiser requires 100% dedication. I am so tired of hearing that Keiser students buy their grades/education when the simple fact is that if I would have been able to buy my grade I could have avoided studying until 3AM every night for the past 18 months.Give me a break!The school is what you make of it and I made the best of it and in return I recieved the best from it. I dedicated myself, kept a positive attitude, and kept my eye on the prize.
I am proud of my efforts and proud of my university. Thank you Keiser Lakeland! The nursing student that I went to school with were AMAZING and will truly make a difference in this world..Way to go core 8!
For the student that started his/her core class in January I agree with you 100%. It was obvious of the grade padding, specifically that program director. The instructors that were there and one that still is were great instructors. I have no complaints about them. I would have graduated this semester if it was not for the program director.
I am one class away from getting my associates degree in Nursing and was told by her "if I didn't have a baby I would have passed and it did not help my grades". I did not struggle one bit through this program only what was expected of a nursing school. I maintained a 3.0 GPA. I know it’s not perfect but I was not a failure.
There were many students that would show up late or not at all and kept passing through each semester knowing there grades were not sufficient enough and their attendance sucked. I also attended the tutoring sessions that did not account for much.
If you want an education you are totally on your own.I could go on and on. I am seeking legal advice and would advise anyone of not attending this school. Too much time and money spent on this program with nothing to show. P.S. I am a very proud mom!
I took my GE courses online with Keiser and loved it. The instructors were helpful, responsive, and seemed to care, probably because many seem to be teachers or professors at other universities as well. I started my Nursing core classes Jan. 2010. The program director is a nut job! She cannot teach and does not teach from the course material. She pads grades and tells everyone, "No one has ever failed my Fundamentals class". That's true because she, with will add whatever points you need to pass regardless if the work was done. Never mind that you're not getting the education that you're paying exorbitant rates for. The deans and administrators have all the documentation they need to release her for cause, but don't or won't. Instead, good, caring, intelligent instructors are leaving the nursing program because of the actions and attitudes of this director and the administrators who openly allow these things to occur. It's painfully obvious that it's only about the money for them. Unfortunately, it's the students who are then left to fend for themselves if they want to actually learn anything. Keiser's first and only priority is getting your money. Before you begin to think that going to a school that will pass anyone will be easy REMEMBER, they will not be there to take the NCLEX for you. If you can't pass the NCLEX you've wasted years of your life and spent over $30,000 (just for the core) to fail. Keiser refutes the old adage; you get what you pay for. In this case you don't.
I do not get these negative comments. I had a great experience at Keiser University. I received tutoring when needed the financial aid department helped me every step of the way. They even contacted me when I needed to redo my financial aid. My admissions counselor was there whenever I needed anything. This school even found me a job after graduation.
I am currently in the general education classes at Keiser University and I will be starting my Core in January. I have not had any problem with the school other than the fact that they charge soooo much. Almost $2000 a class! All the teachers are great and I can say that from experience because I went to Florida Community College at Jacksonville and I did not feel most of the teachers cared. Some of the students seem a little stuck up, I guess that’s because a lot of the students going to the school in Jacksonville are rich. I would recommend the school to anyone that could afford it.
P.S. Financial Aid is really helpful, they get most of the students as much money as they can, as a result a lot of the students are paying close to nothing for the classes.
