Review of Nursing Associate Degrees
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
