Anna Maria College Reviews
The teachers are horrendous. They are unqualified and unhelpful. The school is too small to have a decent program. You would hope at a small school you would have more one on one attention but when I would ask for help they would tell me to drop out of the class. There are so many better schools. Do not wasted your time. I only got an amazing job due to my own research and outside studies.
Convenient online program with 8-week classes, so two classes can be completed, one at a time per term. The classes are organized the same way, so they're all consistent, which is nice. No clinical hours required for this program, the main reason why I chose to attend this program. Faculty and staff were helpful and want students to succeed. Classes were not that challenging, so if you have a prior bachelor's degree or higher, you'll probably feel like you're paying for your degree. There are cheaper options, but with no clinical requirement and a generous transfer credit policy, it's hard to resist. I needed a BSN for mobility, but now wish that I would have gone for an RN to MSN program instead, because I already knew which specialty I wanted to pursue.
I obtained my Bachelors degree (Fire Science) from Anna Maria and I can honestly say it was a wonderful experience. I worked full time and usually took 1-2 classes each semester. I graduated with honors and the degree has already had a very positive effect on my career. The classes are a lot of work. You will get very intimate with the APA format and you will write a lot of papers but you will also get an amazing education. I could not be happier and would definitely recommend it to others.
Great program with applicable coursework ... Expectations were challenging, but manageable. Instructors frequently had applicable real world experience in related field of instruction.
