"Ok, to start off I will say the school itself, at least the campus I was at, was ok. There were some really great instructors that made an impact on my learning experience. There were some instructors that should not be teaching, ever. It showed that they were terrible nurses and were terrible instructors as well. It felt like a few of the instructors got joy out of failing and being a hard-ass on students. They had some serious attitudes that need to be dealt with. They hated their life and took it out on the students. I had one instructor who gave us a student guide for the midterm. Everyone failed the exam. The study guide the instructor gave us had nothing to do with the midterm. We all complained. All the instructor told us was, you should have studied more of the material. Sometimes, some instructors could not give you a correct answer to the material. Why? Most likely they did not know either. I think out of all of the instructors I had in the nursing program, maybe 6 or 7 actually made an impression on me. In fact, I work at the same hospital, different dept, with one of my former clinical instructors. We still talk. Now, let's talk about the admirative side of the school. I don't have enough thumbs to point down to describe them. Terrible, unorganized, useless, lazy, clueless, etc. The academic advisors are some of the laziest people at the school. Financial Aid advisors are not too far off either. I swear they messed up my apps on purpose to make me pay more each semester. I would like to know how that dept could get audited by the government. The academic advisor I had was impossible to deal with. Took forever to get a reply back. He never was "in the office" and never answered phone calls. He only was festering me when HE wanted something. They say you can choose you clinical sites in location to where you live. That was a lie. They need to learn how to read a map. None of my clinicals were anywhere near where I lived. my drive was anywhere from 45-75 mins to drive to the site. I lived near 4 hospitals where others had their clinicals within a 20 min drive to the sites. All in all, it wasn't that bad of a place. I did graduate, but honestly just go somewhere else more organized and probably cheaper. With all of the headaches, lies, lazy administration, ego-centric instructors, and the over priced bill I am now stuck with, just go somewhere else."

"This school is horrible, I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. They control every move you make, if you want to go down to part time they threaten you that you might not get clinical placement and might have to re enroll. The Dean is the rudest person I have ever met. She lets her teachers say and do whatever they want to their students and if the student sticks up to that teacher, it’s the student who gets reprimanded. They will switch the syllabus, tracking calendar, exams, you name it in the middle of the semester. And not even mention it to the students until it’s actively happening. They don’t care that two teachers (for the same class) will be teaching different material but will be giving the exact same exam. They don’t care if their teachers don’t teach and just read off of a slide. The teachers never add their own material or extra information. Half the slides are a picture and that’s all you get, but there will be 10 questions on the exam on that one specific area. It’s like a bad dream you can’t escape. You can go through the chain of commands all the way to the president and still nothing will be done."

"Good: Some genuinely great professors that want to help you succeed and clearly know the subject matter well. Bad: Administration, particularly the Dean of Nursing Linda Krueger, is incompetent and actively works against both students and professors. I won’t rant as long as I’d like to but, out of the colleges I’ve been to, this place is the only one that seems to hold actual contempt towards its students. If nursing credits transferred I’d leave. Don’t get tricked into coming here, it isn’t worth what you pay for it."

"This school is a scam! After completing a year worth of courses, I finally started the nursing courses(last year of program). I had a medical emergency, on a clinical day. How am I supposed to call 60 minutes prior to clinical, if I'm going to be absent, if I'm unable to?! Clinical instructor had no empathy, no concern, did not believe me. Rushed as fast as she could to Fail me and destroy the rest of my nursing program progression by giving me an F for the whole course. Over $30k gone to waste, because none of the credits transfer, and no school will accept me with an F. Run from this place, and go to a not for profit or community College. All these scammers want is your money, and not your success. If they made me get a physical, which stated I had a medical problem, and they accepted me into this program, why are they discriminating me now? This place favors only the young. If you are older, and have a disability, they'll do anything to fail you."

"Bryant & Stratton is a rip off!!! I have never met a school so money minded that they do not care!!!! Like at all about their students, regardless of what you’re going through, they will always want you to pay. Very selfish financial advisors and managers that just never care about anyone. And if you’re an international student, Bryant is the worst choice you can ever choose. Take your money elsewhere they don’t deserve students. Very selfish and unprofessional. I hate every single person that I have worked with in this school."

"Do you want a school that doesn’t care for their students? Then Bryant and Stratton is the school for you. This is the most disorganized school in Milwaukee! I wondered why they were paying financial advisors and advisors in general as they never seem to be doing their job. It takes days to get an email response so go ahead and leave a message... of course they won’t return it though. Got the same clinical site every semester, couldn’t work anything else out so I had no experience anywhere else. On top of the disorganization, the dean will NEVER have your back, if anything is going on with the teacher in your class and every single student reports the teacher, guess whose side the dean will take.. yup, the teachers. This experience can all be yours for the low price of 9,000.00 a semester! Fine print- if you get lower than a C in two classes you fail out and no other school will accept your credits from this school 😁"

"Please, just do not do this to yourself. I've been to real colleges. This is a horrible RN program. Let me explain with examples. 1. I watched them accept LPN students with no placement testing, take their money, fail them out the second week because they weren't on a higher math level. 2. The instructors care, but nothing they say will matter either. They let go of the good ones. In 15 weeks, you might have 3 instructors for one class. Good luck. 3. Orientation is a joke. It's a complete waste of time. You have to go though. 4. 90% of the people you start with will be gone by the time you're close to finishing. 5. You'll get ATI exams that can fail you in a class, even when they do not apply to the concept matter you have learned in that class. Example: you get nutrition exam in lifespan class. 6. They talk about not reporting them to the ANA, go to them first. They don't do anything when you go to them. Just call ANA."

"I am currently in the nursing program. It is COMPLETELY unorganized. Material given is NOT helpful for preparing for the test (for nursing classes), specifically ATI. I understand as nurses, we do not get study guides, but AT LEAST give us some resources. Nursing tests are already difficult but being that tests here are made from instructors and looked over by program director, it's just even harder. I am in a lifespan course...but get this...the class is required to know ATI nutrition material. Guess what? WE ARE NOT TAUGHT NUTRITION in this class AND they do not offer a nutrition course. I do feel like coming here was a big mistake. I've been trying to get back into nursing since 2014 and when I finally thought I found a legit school, I get screwed over. I understand the program is accelerated but GEEZ! Give us some time for the information "taught" to be marinated! They literally "teach" (better yet, show us on a vague powerpoint presentation) and quiz us minutes later like WTF? I am a visual learner. I need to write things down and repeatedly review information for it to stick. I need my flash cards and I feel as if I can't study how I need to study. This whole ATI mess is a rip off. Book is really direct, which is a good thing BUT it's soooooo vague and soooooooooooooooo condensed. When I make flash cards, I am literally rewriting the book. It's like you can't really review for ATI exam because everything is so short and sweet. HELLOOOOO WE ARE NURSES! WE NEED MORE INFORMATION!!!! This school needs to be audited."

"Don't ever go here for nursing. EVER. This school cares nothing about the students and all about the money. They are not helpful whatsoever and will never admit when they are wrong. I would never recommend anyone to this school because the experience I've had was horrible. They take nothing that the students say seriously. When I reached out about an issue I was experiencing they completely ignored me and shut me out like they did with every other student. I heard nothing but horrible things about this college but thought that maybe my experience would be different. I was sadly mistaken. Don't give them your money. They don't deserve it."

"Way too expensive for the quality of education.this college charges the same for medical assistant and the nursing program. I got a financial aid clear slip at the end. Then was hounded by the school for not paying the $100. Library at the Parma campus is extremely small. Grade schools have better resources."

"I would not recommend this school to anyone. First off they are last minute on getting there students the information they need. They make mistakes but don't take accountability for that mistake. Secondly, there instructors (at least at the Wauwatosa campus in Wisconsin) don't know how to teach the information or even know the information for which they are teaching to there students. They don't care about the overall well-being of there students. They expect them to change there schedules last minute without enough time because they don't have there crap together. The clinical experience is not the greatest either. There instructors don't care about the students and giving them experiences that will help excel there nursing careers. At the Wauwatosa campus in Wisconsin the dean of nursing who is supposed to be this person who stands up for her students and should listen to the concerns of her students does not do either of that. She, as well as her faculty blames the students for there mistakes and just expects them to fix there lives. Nursing school itself is very stressful but when you add all the extra stress from the faculty it makes it 10 times worse. When I graduated the school was already having issues with there accreditation and every semester there is something else wrong. it is to expensive of a school to have to deal with all this crap. I would not waste my time, energy and money on this school."

"DO NOT ATTEND THIS COLLEGE. I just graduated from this school and it is the worst run school or business i have ever come in contact with. The teachers do not care about you passing your classes and you pretty much teach yourself. At the same time they have unrealistic marketing efforts that claim that they help their student find jobs but they do not actually do that. They hinder your performance in your field and there are no faculty that actually care about yourself. Do yourself a favor and stay FAR from this college."

"worst place I have EVER been to!!! They literally take all of your money and it doesn't even make sense as to why they take so much!! I wasn't in clinicals but yet they charge you $500 for a clinical fee???!! They professors are terrible and the school in general is so unwilling to help you unless you mommy calls in yelling and screaming! If you're having difficulties due to a learning disability they will NOT help you unless you have a doctor's note saying that you have difficulty. I cannot wait to graduate and get the hell out of this place"
