Adventist University of Health Sciences Reviews
The distance learning version of the BSN program was well organized with a wealth of knowledge as part of the curriculum. I found that I learned a great deal of knowledge that helped contribute to better clinical skills. The professors/staff were helpful and most often, prompt in their communication when addressing concerns. I really appreciated the online format as it catered to my scheduling needs. As a [then] single mom working full time, it really helped that I could "attend" online chats later in the evening and feel like I wasn't missing out on other personal or professional opportunities or responsibilities. The only thing I might have preferred is if there was less focus on the religious courses but I understood at the time that this was to be expected because the school was/is affiliated with a religious organization.
I had the pleasure of going to both the Florida campus and the Denver campus. The Florida campus was full of teachers that actually wanted you to succeed and resources to help you do so. The Denver campus was the exact opposite; teachers showing bias towards students, no access to resources such as a library, and not many financial help opportunities. If you are a person who is very financially stable and believe a certain set of beliefs, then you will probably not have an issue there. However, I implore you to choose somewhere else.
This was a well structured college which allowed me to further my education online. Being that I worked full time and had just started a family this college fit my needs. I was really impressed with the relatively ease of applying for classes and the help was very easy to obtain, even during my already busy lifestyle, when help was needed. I am now pursuing a graduate degree in physician assistant studies, through University of Dayton Dayton, OH, I would have loved to attended this school for a second time but distance was an issue being that this type of program is not attainable through online courses. If I had to do it all again I would still pursue my degree through this college. I don't regret this choice a educaition.
ADU has come a long way since it first opened in 1992. Being a faith based institution, the ADU faculty and staff truly live up to this standard in providing genuine, Christ like care for each student-- whether Christian or otherwise. As a student, you never feel as if you're just a number on a roster. Instructors do their best to know you by name and will generally take whatever time necessary to help you succeed.
