"This college enabled me to graduate despite various challenges. I passed my McKee and was able to get a job. I am grateful that I was accepted here. The faculty and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Making a decision to come here is a no brainer."

"I personally feel Beckfield is a good college ! Since I’ve attended I’ve actually felt as if the teachers & staff actually care about the students and actually want to see you succeed. I haven’t run into any issues & in the event I had any questions or concerns I am always able to get them answered quickly. I would definitely recommend."

"The best people in the ADN nursing program are Nancy Ritzenthaler, Nick Thompson, & Taitum Godfrey. Nick is such a good instructor. Nancy is so sweet. And Taitum is the best teacher that program has to offer along with Nick. Taitum is the sweetest woman and is 100% involved and active with her student’s success."

"If you're looking for a college that cares for their students and has great resources for help when you need it, Beckfield College is not the one for you! They are more worried about money than anything else. The admission people are very unpleasant. Teachers do not help you and they don't care about students like they should. We have an email system for no reason because none of the teachers or administrators answer their emails. For the one that said, "The negative comments are from the ones who didn't try and didn't follow policies." is probably someone who works there. This college is a nightmare!! I have never seen worse people to run a school and how unprofessional they are ever in my life! Might save someone from wasting their time when they read this, i hope."

"I signed with Beckfield College. I was in the Dental Assistanting program. I had only 4 classes left before externship. They sold the college to ATA College by the way, did they ever asked me if I wanted to graduate from ATA College, NO and well anyways, I graduate on 11-9-2019 from what is now ATA College. From my understanding ATA took on all the students and payments and extra.... Well today, I received a bill from Witkes Law Firm, LLC saying, They are collecting the debt that is due on behalf of Beckfield College.. This is bologna, I don't owe Beckfield College anyting. As for the school, I will not recommend anybody to take dental assisting, if you want to learn go online and order the book's yourself and study on your own time. Then go do your research to figure out where you can get certified. Really do your research the pay is not all that great. The amount that they want from you from the school is asking way too much... And in the end your left with a big bill and they say you have SIX MONTHS to PAY IT BACK after you graduate, I haven't even graduated.... I GET A BILL..."

"Good education, overall program, and wonderful Instructors. All the negative comments are because the student themselves who donts study or skip classes. If you work hard and follow regulation, you do just great and many people and instructor really give themselves to help student. Overall, it amazing, small nursing program and they will help you no matter what!! :)"

"Beckfield College has no wait lists and no unneeded classes. The 3yr BSN is even quicker if you have any transfer credits.They unlike most Nursing programs can tell you when you actually will graduate when you enroll. Most schools give you the run around and it ends up costing just as much or even more because of all the extra classes. Beckfield is pretty comparable to most schools with cost anyways and it's soooooooooooo worth it to be able to get in right away. I think everyone has their right to their own opinion. But alot of people just want to get into their career and start making money. This is definitley the fastest way."

"Beckfield is a great school focusing on Nursing. Every class you take revolves around nursing so it makes it easier to stay focused. The people and professors truly care about your success. When you have classes that specifically revolves around nursing it helps you to stay on track. I came from a University and I like Beckfield so much better."

"Im currently one week away from completing my second quarter at Beckfield College. Straight As, and love all of my classes. I find it hard to understand how other students do not succeed here. Staff is extremely helpful, and all nursing classes even math are targeted towards the nurses education. Which I personally love. Prior to starting, it is made quite clear that nursing is not for everyone, and that the program has high expectations with attendance and keeping a certain GPA is a must to pass classes. It is also explained that studying is a must, and that the program is hard. Yet, still others I hear complain about the school are those that do not show up to class, talk during lectures, and do not attend tutoring when they are borderline passing if passing at all. I saw that someone else who reviewed the school complained about hidden fees, I dont know about them but I was warned prior to starting that the amount they quote for the program is a rough estimate, and is likely to change. Which makes sense pending books, uniforms, monthly payments etc. As far as teaching staff Ive liked all of them and have learned a tremendous amount of knowledge. Sometimes I can see the frustration one may get with teaching styles, but that can happen anywhere. Last quarter our lab teacher was completely lost as to how to properly teach and was fired after complaints. Teachers that stepped in for him were awesome! I love that you start the program with the same people u end it with, and everyone is very approachable."

"Teachers are very immature and unprofessional. If you do not fit their clique requirements then you are automatically an outcast to them. They are a young staff which Im sure this plays a roll into the mature levels. Good luck trying trying to find an answer because no one here knows anything except how to take your money. Watch out for all the fees they dont tell you about either"

"we have had issues with our instructor since day one and we have brought our concerns up with the instructor, other instructors, the dean or nursing, and even the dean over BOTH CAMPUS and NOTHING has been changed. its not only our class that has a problem with this instructor, its several other classes. It feels as if they pull instructors off the street and give them two days to learn how to teach a lecture. They look at students as a check, no of our concerns are getting taken care of. I am VERY DISPOINTED in this quarter. I'm seriously thinking about transferring and at this point in time I would not recommend this school to anyone looking to be a successful nurse. I know I wont be the only one feeling this way ........"

"Please do your research before trusting Beckfield College! The college is not regionally accredited. The tuition is extremely high, and the failure rate is through the roof. Do not trust their sales antics. Please learn from my experience at Beckfield College."

"I am in my second quarter in Beckfield's Nursing program and I am very pleased with my experience so far. Everyone at Beckfield is so helpful and make it very clear that they want you to succeed. When going into the nursing program, it is explained thoroughly that this educational path is not for the faint of heart. It is meant to be hard. So far, every instructor I've had has been wonderful. I highly reccommend Beckfield"s nursing program!"
Worse College ever

"This is by far the worse college I have ever gone too. You teacher your self, pay a s*** ton of money and are treated like a dumb ass every time you ask a question. They are also very unfair to their students. I differently wouldn't even send my dead dog here. I spent several months at this school and was a very hard loyal student. My nursing instructor failed me by less then a half of a point but found a way to add points so others could pass. When I went to talk to the dean she made it a point to tell me I was a lier and needed to pay hundreds of dollars to take a test to be allowed back into there program and that I needed to keep my mouth shut. When just last quarter they allowed students who failed a class to continue with other classes. I have seen this school screw and hurt so many people. They have only one teacher that teaches every nursing class. If you wanna call it teaching. They are way over priced. Thomas Moore is way cheaper. I have seen them tack on money to peoples fee's and require them to pay them cash before they would let them graduate. Mind you they tell these people that at the very end of there last quarter. If you ever want to become something and get your degree, I recommend never walking into this place. All they are is fake sales people."

"This college is by far the worst college. They gave me false information with financial aid. I owe 5500 out of pocket just for 3 months (1 quarter)! That's outrageous. They told me it would be half that. I sure hope people read the reviews before falling in to their trap."

"I wasted 7 years of my life with this college. I now owe the Federal government over $57,000.00 in student, hold two college degress, and am unemployed. I successfully completed Beckfield's Paralegal program and then went back for my Bachelors in Healthcare Management ( which no longer exists by the way). The HCM was terminated 9 months before my completion date. I did not find this information until the last quarter. I should have been made aware of this and given the opportunity to transfer programs at no cost. Since I have graduated, I have sent my resume out over 300 times. I have received one phone interview and was told that my degree is useless in this area as there is no niche for this type of work. Local Hospitals and medical facilities are now using licensed RNs to fill these positions as they are much more current on practices and practicums than an individual with managment classes. I did write my resume with the Career Placement ladies, and to avail. I am still unemployed and paying on my student loans. I have found no success with either of my degrees from Beckfield College. The individuals who have attended Beckfield College for RNs and MAs have found the most success. I applaud them in these programs as they are taught by licensed individuals in the medical fields. However, I feel saddened by my experience as I was not given the option or knowledge to move forward in my life. All I ever wanted was to make a solid living for my myself and support my family. I will now never meet my dreams of working in the medical profession and will forever be indebted to the government with this heavy financial burden that I am solely responsible for."

"Hello All, I would like to let everyone know why these people are moaning and complaining, while also acting mello-dramatic, about a school that is not so bad. First of all, as one person previously mentioned, go in with caution. But that is not just for Beckfield College. The advice previously mentioned is for any college you plan to seek and or further your education. Beckfield college does not "require" you to purchase anything you do not wish to. You have to be upfront with Financial Aid at the time your package is being completed, that you wish to not get a laptop or any other superfluous items from the school. Financial Aid is leaving the laptop and the cost of my books out of expenses until I find them on my own, when I wish to purchase the items from the school, Beckfield will gladly add those items back into my financial aid package. I can't stress enough, and repeat myself, while sounding redundant. So, in a nutshell, make sure you are upfront with the college financially. Also, read the policies! Do not just take a summer off without properly withdrawing or filing a leave of absence. The same scenario as previously mentioned in another review, happened to me at a University! Be responsible with your education, and the facility you are attending will be responsible with you as well."
