Bryant & Stratton College Reviews

I have no idea on where to start here, first I guess I will start with the student advisors who were all absolutely wonderful along with Financial aid! Now to actually speak for the rest. There was one teacher who the students adored and unfortunately, she had to leave due to family reasons and she will be highly missed. There was another instructor who was hired and I enjoyed them as an instructor only to find out they ended up leaving quickly after they started.....this paints the pictures for the rest of this. There were 2 nursing instructors who were and there for their students if you reach out to them and most of the lab instructors are great as well. However, in the other classes I took, the instructors seemed as though they don't care to help and if they do "help" they give you really no instructions on what to do about the situation at hand or seemed to really care which is the sad part because the majority of the students are grown adults and yet we as students are treated as elementary students. All you ever hear is well this is nursing school and we didn't receive help or guidance so neither will you and you'll have to figure it out yourselves. Ok? So this makes total sense right? A bunch of students who have never been an RN trying to understand the material being taught and what to read and how to comprehend who is being taught only to take the final and realize everything is wrong? So this is supposed to help us as students learn right? WRONG! Oh and also let me tell you that if you happen to see an instructor outside of school you better run in the opposite direction because unless you are in their "clique" they will make up lies and then you get kicked out of the program without even being asked what happened from your point of view. The school says that they are there for the students when they have problems with instructors, classes, other students, personal issues, etc. but they will use anything against you to allow for the next potential "student" because now they have your money and don't care anymore about you. It really is a crying shame that the people who work there that have "no pull" are there for the students 1000000x more than the higher up people in management spots that are able to call the shots on who's in the program and who's out. So thanks B&S for having my eyes opened to see how you really run your establishment, for only listening to people to work for you (who you pay to be there) instead of the student (who pays A LOT OF MONEY to be there), and causing my life to be shambles and now in a ton of debt. If you choose to go here beware to not receive help from most of the instructors, be ready to stay to yourself and don't make any friends who try to be social to help your classmates, and stay quiet during your classes unless asked a direct question because you will have to watch your back every step of the way to ensure you won't be on the "radar". Good luck to everyone and I wish you the very best!
My nursing program was great, teachers are nice and very smart. I am so sorry people write mean ugly statements about my nursing school . We all passed the NCLEX and I am glad this school accepted me as a student. I think people do not understand that nursing is a hard subject to take and not everyone can make it, but they gave me the everything I needed to be successful.
Don't waste your time to even go there, I sent 9 months there for them to just dismiss me and not let me keep my grades so I'm in debt. I only had one semester left. A waste of my time and money, the teacher are not nice and really only know how to be nurses and don't know how to teach.
I am very disappointed as a first year student. I was taking the M.A. degree and was very excited about starting school. When I started they knew I was pregnant and was told they would be able to work with me to continue to obtain my degree. Well I was put on bed rest Sept. 29th and was still going to class up until the middle of October. I was still turning in my work and keeping in touch with my instructors. 2 out of 3 of my classes I was still passing but the 1 I was failing was due to me not being able to be there to complete assessments. So when they started talking about withdrawing me from class, the 1 class I was failing, I could understand them wanting to withdraw me from that. But they wanted to withdraw me from all my classes even the ones I was passing. I asked for them not to do that because I would be discouraged to come back if I had to start from scratch after putting in so much work. And why should I if I'm still passing! Well I go to log into my portal just to find out that they withdrew me from ALL my classes when the semester ends Dec. 17th. I am so upset that I wasted my time, energy, and money going to this school when they don't have anything in place for women that's pregnant and has to be put on bed rest! That just took more money from my education that I could have used at another school that could have helped or had something in place for women in my situation. Instead I got bamboozled to start, instead of them just being honest and telling me to wait until after I have my baby because they don't have a system setup for pregnant women who may become high risk. So Women if your pregnant or pretty far in the pregnancy don't go here because they will not work with you!
I am truly sorry that I started this program at Bryant Stratton. This program is absolutely worthless and in my first and second semesters our class literally learned next to nothing. The instructors treat you very poorly. You will get put down and embarrassed in this "college." This has to be the biggest waste of money and time that I have thrown out the window in many years. What a total mistake. Do yourself a favor and apply anywhere else but here. This college is interested in taking your money (as it is a FOR-profit college) and throwing you under the bus when any little thing goes awry. You WILL be told that the instructors "Don't fail you. The students fail THEMSELVES." None of the course material is neither on track nor organized. My experience here has been an enormous disappointment. I would not recommend this college to my worst enemy. It's a total clown show.
Alright where to start, so wanting to get a job in law enforcement. I knew I needed 1 year in college so I chose B&S location Albany, N.Y. walking into my first class noticed that all the desk seem to be falling apart chairs were hard as rocks and I thought I was in high school again. and cant forget all the pointless classes they make you take and spend hundreds of dollars on books that you don't even use. And when you purchase the books they tell you to get most likely they aren't even the right books for that class. they want you to buy the books though them so they can charge you more. so back to my main course. After studying everyday completing every homework passing the class with over a 90 I was so exited to pass this class with A average the final exam came.... I was stumped it seemed like the whole class was, finding out that Almost every question on the exam we didn't even learn in class so everyone failed the final exam and so everyone was upset that we worked our butts off and the teachers excuse was that we couldn't comprehend what we learned well he must've been right because he's a teacher and they know best. so completing every homework that involved writing a 5 page essay off of a paragraph in the book that was due everyday and the pointless classwork led to noting. so I wouldn't recommend the school to anyone looking to becoming anything law enforcement. i wouldn't even expect passing a class and flushing $30,000 down the toilet for the time I was there I could've went to a community collage and learned more and only spent 5000 so please do your research before you spend thousands of dollars on something that's gonna impact you life forever.
I am the PARENT of a student who is currently attending Bryant and Stratton. My daughter has experienced some of the same negative experiences listed by others and she hasn't even been there 4 weeks. They do rush you into their programs BUT what they don't tell you is how they break down the financial aid so that the student receives NOTHING and is even put into debt unless they of course attach their "grant" money to it. They've forced the students to purchase books ONLY THROUGH THEIR BOOKSTORE and if not they the STUDENT has to go OUT-OF-POCKET because they're NOT giving any financial aid money instead their "grant" gets reduced! They've basically figured out a way to isolate all of their students financial resources and then make them THINK they're looking out for their best interests! They're charging for Master level courses $600+ dollars per credit hour for Undergraduate level courses, OUTRAGEOUS! That's what I pay as a Master's student myself that goes to a Major University and dare I say it, I GET A REFUND CHECK, I'M ALLOWED TO PURCHASE MY OWN BOOKS! My daughter isn't even in the degree program she wants to be in yet, which is Nursing. She's taken what they call "prerequisite" courses, so GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT THEY CHARGE FOR DEGREE COURSES. Now I know why they're so in a rush to get a student enroll. Bryant and Stratton is bank rolling BIG TIME off of each student!
This college is full of a bunch of scammers they scam people and to enrolling in the college giving him false information and then treat them like c*** the whole time they're there I passed all my classes with a good GPA and they still tried to put me on academic probation the school claims to have good student services and employment services which is false. The teachers were awesome which was a good part the only good part of the school. But anyone else at the school is just out to manipulate you to bring themselves money. Please do not let them scam you. The dean of the school is the worst of all of them acts like he's there to help you but doesn't care about you or anybody else is long unless you're putting food on his table they will turn their backs on you in a second and stab you right in the back anytime any chance they get.
Do not go to Bryant and Stratton in Parma Ohio for the BSN program! The BSN program is worthless!!!! I hated every second, hated every class in the BSN program. I did not have any good experience in the BSN program. The teachers make everything more difficult than it has to be. The teachers all have side jobs, and those jobs are more important than teaching. No one gives you resources to succeed in the program. Many more have failed out than passed while I was at Bryant and Stratton BSN program at Parma. Make sure you read all of these reviews before you sign up for school, they will tell you the real story. If you go to the Parma campus for the BSN program, you'll regret it every day as I do.
Going to Bryant and Stratton College in Parma was the worst experience of my life! Reading all of these reviews on this website and other websites, I don't know why I went here. If I had read all of these reviews, I would have never gone to this school for nursing! Most of the reviews on Bryant and Stratton especially for the BSN program at Parma are very negative, and you should consider them. I have had many of the same experiences as I see on here. The teachers in the BSN program have no heart; they do not care about your learning, nor their students. Some of the teachers in the BSN program will call you lazy and call you stupid. It is one of the most chaotic, judgemental and unprofessional environments a student can be in. I cannot stress to you as a future student enough to not go to Bryant and Stratton for Nursing in the bachelor's program. I regret my decision to come to Bryant and Stratton College for Nursing, and if you come here too, you'll regret it.
