Olivet Nazarene University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
The MSN FNP program is an embarrassment to the nursing profession. Olivet is a disappointment on many levels. There is no support at all. You pay to teach yourself. The Deans do not care at all. I have already told anyone who asks about my program and to not waste their time even looking. They lie to you and tell you can work full time and then they tell you right before clinical it's expected you do not. You have some classes with zero interactions with he so called instructors for the whole 6 weeks. They do not help you find preceptors. And the course load is way to much. In 6 weeks you cover more content than in a 15 week course at other schools. You have no work life balance and they do not care! There are plenty of other programs out there. Do yourself a favor and avoid this one! All they want is your money.
There ABSN program is terrible, awful, and crap. Words cannot describe how they make all heir students suffer for nothing. The school is run as for-profit-institution so they are on a look out for money. They treat students like a machine to fill their bank accounts. Professor play favoritism with grading on who to pass and who to fail. Wouldn't recommend this school.
I completed my ABSN program here at their Oak Brook location. This place is completely disorganized and worst of the worse schools I have been to in my life. I would never recommend anyone to come here. Save your money and go somewhere else. I would recommend Chamberlain or Resurrection than this place.
Olivet has a wonderful community, but it does have a bubble-like feel to it. The professors are wonderful and care deeply about their students, but I did not feel particularly challenged academically while attending. There is a lot of financial aid available, but be aware that tuition increases quite a bit yearly.
I just graduated from Olivet Nazarene University's Accelerated Nursing program in Oakbrook this past Fall semester. I wouldn't recommend this program to the worst of my enemies. This program is a living nightmare.... it's completely disorganized and they are only interested in taking your money while making you go through a lot of unnecessary problems. They blame students for everything even though there staff is least interested in teaching or helping students. I made it to graduation only because of my determination and inner strength. Professors only care about getting their paychecks on time without doing any work especially the faculty in level 3 and 4. Whenever you have a question they made us run in loops. If you had a problem they played checkers with you while not providing you with the appropriate resources. I wouldn't recommend this program to anyone who wants to be nurse as you will spend most of your time crying about things in this program because and you will find that no one will help.
This school along with the BBA program is exceptional. If you are a working adult looking for a rigorous yet accommodating program this school is for you. Not only did I get a quality education and was prepared for life but my faith in God grew stronger. If you are looking for a faith-based school with a quality education Olivet is it.
I was extremely excited to start the Nurse Practitioner's Program at Olivet University, that excitement quickly turned into disappointment when my on-line instructor stop participating in any class activities. To make matters worse the school was not supportive after reaching out to them for help. Consequently at the end of the six-week course the instructor failed to show up, week 3 thru 6, the Student for Success Team finally got involved after the class was over and another instructor had to come in and grade all the course work from week 3 thru 6. By the way I did not want the grade I was given, I paid for an exchange of information. The school refused to give me a refund.
I love the Christian atmosphere of Olivet. It really helped me during hard times. The staff is always courteous and helpful. They go out of their way to aid students in whatever area they need help in. I would definitely recommend Olivet to other students not only because I believe I am getting a good education here, but because I know that when I receive my degree I will succeed in my field.
