"I was like you 22 months ago reading these reviews. Oh, these people just didn’t work hard enough! I am in my 5th semester of nursing. I have maintained a 3.9 gpa throughout a horrible program where I have taught myself completely. I am failing now. Surprise surprise, by the same professor teaching both of the classes. If you fail two classes, like the two classes the gate keeper teaches, you are booted from the campus and the credits don’t transfer. I am at the Akron campus, I know Parma and Solon are ran completely different, go there over Akron if you must. Akron didn’t secure any clinical facilities either, Parma and Solon had no issue but apparently covid only affected our clinical sites LOL. Parma and Solon is still a crap shoot but at least they won’t intentionally fail you from what I hear. We have a week of good exams? The next week is harder. My class of 14, all failing. We score about 5% of each other, but that’s all on us? Not an issue with the program and the professors they found in the dumpster depths of eBay? We have went to our directer, our academic advisor, the professors. Nothing works. Not one person graduated from last semester either that hadn’t failed the semester prior. It’s comical when they spout their nclex pass rates because they ensure no one can get there to take them. I should be graduating in 1.5 months, instead I’m stuck with 45k in debt and credits that won’t transfer. Did I mention I have a 93% in med surg? Oh right, because that is taught by one of the few (VERY FEW) decent professors we have had. Should be ashamed of themselves. This was the worst decision I’ve ever made, run while you can."

"I graduated as a Certified Medical Assistant in 1995 from the Richmond Rd, Richmond Heights ,Ohio Campus It was a total waste of time and money. Their Career Placement was a joke and no help. I did a externship totally unprepared. never employed as a M.A I wouldn't recommend them to my biggest enemy"

"I graduated in December and was told that after the pinning ceremony I would be told exactly what I (and my classmate) needed to do in order to get our RN license. We were told during our NCLEX review session that our ATT numbers were on the way. After over a month of waiting I decided to conduct my own research. I found out that we needed to register with Pearson Vue. I did this and informed the new dean that no one ever mentioned this detail to us ( there were only 2 students who graduated). I waited another two weeks and still nothing. So, I then called the OBN and found that I was not even in their system. Apparently we also needed to register for and complete an FBI and BCI check in order to receive our ATT numbers. Again, the school told us nothing at all. We have been waiting over two months with no information about something that was never going to come. When confronted and told that I now may lose the job I had been offered due to time contraints on taking the NCLEX after graduating, all that was said was "OMG i'm so sorry". I finally have everything I need in order to obtain my ATT thanks to the kind women working for the OBN. I can't even fathom the complete disregard for their students especially when there was only two of us in the graduating class."

"This school is the biggest scam I have ever been a part of. I attended the nursing program. They will do anything they can to fail you. PLEASE don’t waste your time and money like I did!!!!! They failed out 50 of the 60 students in my cohort in our 3rd semester. This school is an absolute disgrace."

"(RICHMOND, VA) I went to this school straight out of high school because I went through their Jump Start program during high school. I passed all my classes, but many people didn't. Honestly, most of the teaching was alright. I've had better and worse. Where they really fall short in their nursing program is the clinical side. It was COMPLETELY unorganized. The "sim-labs" were an absolute joke. You only went through the skills ONCE, and sometimes they didn't even have enough supplies for everyone to do every step in a skill. There was also only ONE day a week where the lab was open for students wanting to get extra practice. As far as your actual clinicals, most of the locations were far away depending on which clinical you were doing because the school has such a bad relationship with the surrounding hospitals. In my clinicals, for the most part, you only did CNA work. We did very little actual nursing. I understand that sometimes there's just certain things you won't see until you're working, but I got so very little experience that I left after my 3rd semester. It's terrible. As far as the school itself, they seem very flexible at first, but as you go along in your program, there is very little availability. The financial aid advisers have messed up countless of people's accounts... mine included. I wasted so much money here. I'm not sure what changes they've made since I left, but be aware that they are very good at selling a dream that, for me, did not exist."

"So very upset with what this school has done. They teach us off of 2016 ATI books all semester and then tell us that we would take 2019 proctors two weeks before the test. These proctors are worth 10% of our overall test average, so this one test can make you fail the semester. They also do not give you the grade that you receive on your proctored exam. If you do not get a level 2 then you receive a "0" on your test, dropping your test average 8-10 points. The staff completely sold me on a great school that took care of their students and the concerns they have. THEY LIED! They do not care about their students, they care about the money. Once you try and challenge this or the school they place you as a target and make sure that you leave. This school is nothing but a money pit and a scam. I am very annoyed at how little they actually do for their students once they have your money."

"I do not understand how this “college” is allowed to continue its operation. I came into the Nursing program after earning my Bachelor’s degree from a major university. I cannot believe that I fell for this scam. I justified paying more because I would complete the Nursing program quicker, right - wrong! You will take just as long as any other program but in turn, you will pay twice as much. Stick to the reputable programs - not B&S. Next, more likely than not, you will NOT graduate from this program. I was in my final semester and throughout the process, I’ve witnessed most, if not all, of my classmates “fail out”. The majority failed because of B&S - not because they did wrong. I could write a book about this inadequate program and lack of education. In my last semester, I can no longer complete the program because I’ve “failed” two courses. Ask any student and they will tell you how the exams are NOT what you were taught. Their program is so inadequate that NO other institution will honor your courses - why, because they too know they are nonsense and students have not learned what they should and therefore would reflect on the new school when you take the NCLEX. So why would B&S be okay with most failing out - because it’s all about money and business - they’ve gotten your money (check) so they’ve made money (twice as much as most program) so they are sitting pretty. They get rid of you because they do NOT want their students taking the NCLEX because they know you will struggle and probably fail. If YOU fail then THEY fail. Now it explains how they can have a high “pass rate” - they only have a few who make it to the end. I literally witnessed several “fail out” the DAY BEFORE their pinning and finalization of the program. In other words, it is true - THEY SET YOU UP TO FAIL and it’s okay because they’ve already gotten your money. I wish I had listened to ALL these comments written here - where there is smoke, their IS fire."

"Keeping this very short and sweet. You want honesty, read 99% of the period reviews posted. I honestly don’t know how this school is still open. They should be shut down. Saying it’s horrible, a scam, unprofessional, an embarrassment.. those words do not even touch on this school. DONT even waste your time thinking about it. You want to throw money away, be taught by people that can’t even teach, have a horrible staff turnover, get sent through hoops and hurdles that appear out of no where, then hands down, here’s the “school” for you. Yes... I said I was keeping it short and sweet, and I did. I have never been so disgusted with a group of people and a “school” SHUT IT DOWN"

"Horrible school, employer's frown at the education and ethics. I am in debt almost 100,000.00 for two Assoc. degrees I don't even use. The intuition for the school alone is robbery. A person can go to a far more accredited school and obtain a Bachelor's/Masters degree for that price. Although a lot of interest has accrued since me attending the school. However it is a absurd amount to pay for a school that name holds no weight any where except at the bottom of a river. I know other people who have said the same and has the same amount of debt coming out of that school. My advice don't do it. There are some other concerns about the faculty I have when it comes to counseling students about career goals and the best interest of the students. Their interest is filling seats and their pockets."

"Worthless program. I went to the old Amherst campus behind Eastern Hills mall. It wasnt a bad experience, but the job prep class was idiotic at best. Basically it was more meant for people in suit & tie jobs than the electronics field. Basically stupid crap like cold-calling, interview skills(aka how to BS your way into a job but still get paid crap wages), doing presentation(a lesson in embarrassment, had to wear a stupid 3 piece suit and with my braces my speech was poor) etc. the placement dept was completely incompetent. I applied everyplace I could around buffalo-Lockport area, nothing. The only thing the placement people could find was a dump in east buffalo (pnu lec controls) putting control panels togetherpneumatic stuff!! Very little electronics!! Plus I was one of the only people in the assembly shop with even a high school diploma! The rest of the clowns in that place were drug addict scum that acted like animals, managed by a thug named George Leone and his scumbag kid working there. Thankfully that place is closed down. It was there that one of their electronic engineers explained to me that the associates degree I got from B&S degree I got was worthless unless I was working in an actual electronics factory putting circuit boards together.., and even those jobs were leaving the country. Basically avoid this school if youre thinking of any technology training, go to an actual state or county college that has some clout instead of a for-profit degree mill like Bryant & Stratton or DeVry."
