Beckfield College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (17)
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.
Love this school haven't been going for long but everyone is extremely helpful the staff really wants to see everyone succeed and are there every step of the way so far all these old reviews sound a little scary but I witnessed first hand it's not a bad school its pretty great
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!
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.
