I want to start off by saying that I don't understand the negative reviews this school I getting. I just graduated and out of all the instructors that I had, I only have one that was very rude and unhelpful. She was so rude and unhelpful that I dropped out for that semester, came back, and finished with flying colors. I never was given a grade that I did not earn. The instructors all answer within 24 hours most of the time and most of them will help you via phone or Skype. The only negative thing that I can say is that if you take medical billing and coding, it is very hard. You are teaching yourself. It took me way too long to figure it out but, is that really the schools fault? I have had zero issues with financial aid or any of the employees at this school. I am returning in a few weeks to further my education. I have learned a lot at this school. I believe that people giving it bad reviews had the misconception that teachers would be coddling them as if they are I'm elementary school, and when they realized they couldn't learn the material on their own, they decided to blame the school. This is an online school. You must read and comprehend things on your own or you are screwed. As far as someone's post about the discussions, I type a full page at each discussion. I research the topic, and provide references. Others post four sentences with misspelled words and improper grammar, yet expect to get 100. I'm not sure how some of them made it past 6th grade to be honest. By taking online courses you are not getting a free ride or an easy way out. YOU MUST STUDY, TURN ASSIGNMENTS IN COMPLETE AND ON TIME. There is nothing wrong with this school other than maybe they should be choosier on who they let in.
These people are the worst!!! I purchased books, well over $1000, that were not needed (most I never touched). The instructors gave me grade I didnt earn. Incomplete assignments, I still received 90-100% grade. Multiple assignments had errors (missing info). Some writing assignments are opinion based and by informing the instructor of that my grade was changed from a 65% to 100%. Not only does the assignments have errors bit their presentations have multiple spelling and grammatical errors but they tale points off our discussion posts if we post with errors. Bryant and Stratton is a sham. You can simply purchase your degree, know nothing and theyll be fine with it. All they care about is making money. After submitting my complaints and proof, they agreed with me and said they would call me back. Never heard back until I quit and they wanted to pish the bill on me. Ive requested a detailed bill on multiple occasions and have yet to get one. But I did get a total bill I owe to BS, Appropriately abbreviated because their school is BS, without any details via email. I was born but didnt listen before I started please listen and dont waste your time or money going to the school .
I decided to go back to school to finish my associates degree. After inquiring on their website, someone called me within the next hour and was extremely pushy and letting me know I should sign up right away because there was only like a week or so left until I had to wait months for the next session. She told me my whole associates degree would cost about $16,000 - it ended up being around $16,000 per semester. Which is insane. I have had maybe two good teachers, the rest are complete a*******. I have gotten so many horrible grades with no explanation at all. They are not helpful and I feel like I have been teaching myself. I have taken online courses before at different colleges and did not have this same experience. I would never recommend this school.
i find the school treat you fair i had fun with hospitality i did my assignments and was graded according to my work it what you put into your assignments i am going to finish with the course and enroll in culinary art in december 2018 i learn alot because i do my reading assignments.
I attended Bryant& Stratton after I transferred from another college that close up. I was hoping to continue working on my associate degree. They enrolled me quickly and I never was explained the cost of anything. When I started class I was rushed to get some assignment done. I had to find my way by myself no one help me. I ask for help because their system and blackboard was different. I email my instructor but no response until the last week of class. The advisor email the assignment I what had to do. I've done every assignment they told me to do. He started checking the assignment and I made all A's and B's and then he stopped again and disappeared. When he returned he said I had done a lot of wrong assignments so I asked him can I do the right assignments please show me he never response to me. The next day I logged in to the blackboard he had failed me it was 40%.I know why he fail me because they gave me a scholarship for every term I would receive 1000.00 to 5000.00 if I kept my grades at a A are B average. I had been in the other college for over a year before they close maintaining A&B average. And i had been to college before and graduated. They took every penny of my loans and federal aid and then ignored me and some other students. It wasn't but three student in our class. I got a chance to meet my advisor the last week of class. I told her about my experience with my instructor she said some are like that. But not all of them maybe next class the instructor will be different wish you luck. I feel they treated me wrong and this was a horrible experience for me.
This school seemed great with multiple locations and advertises as being very flexible for working adults. My first semester went by fine, but when I started the actual nursing program everything became very hectic and unorganized. Most of the faculty are great and helpful but the faculty itself are not given the needed resources or knowledge and the curriculum is sporadic. The faculty are not held to specific standards and basically do whatever they want. Instructors often came to class unprepared and did not follow the syllabus which in turn made students unpreparec. This is unacceptable in an accelerated program because the syllabus is the only thing students are given to prepare. I don't often go into class feeling very prepared and sometimes even ahead to find out that not only am I not prepared I'm 2 weeks behind. The school also advertises as being very flexible for working adults, it is not. Students are given blocks of classes and you have to choose from a block and they are not flexible whatsoever. Within those blocks there will be up to approximately four classes including one or two clinicals. Faculty will often schedule classes outside of normal class hours for scheduling reasons. When you cannot attend these classes most faculty our understanding however sometimes times it is mandatory and you will receive negative points if you do not attend. We were once told the day before when the next day's class . You are given a nursing handbook with all the rules and regulations and also a syllabus for each class. The school does not follow the nursing handbook and the faculty do not follow the syllabus on a regular basis. Once again for an accelerated program this can make things very difficult for an already working adult. I would not recommend this school for working adults and even the young adults that I met while attending had an extremely hard time following the curriculum. Faculty is often updated on a regular basis per semester due to problems and when you do have a problem personally you will have a hard time getting any answers. The school is so unorganized not one person knows the answer and knows who to go to to get an answer. A lot of the students from past semesters in current semesters find themselves unprepared to take the NCLEX. The NCLEX passing rate for this school is very low and the student graduate rate for this school is very low. I would advise anyone researching schools to look into the graduation rates for the schools. Also always make sure that your school is accredited. Every semester we lost approximately half of the class, some students came back the next semester but the majority of them did not. Whether you fail or not you still have to pay so you'd want to make sure that the school you decide to go to is appropriate for your situation otherwise you will end up uneducated and with more bills.
My experience here was great, but I feel it could have been better. Most of my teachers were amazing and had great resources; they gave me great feed back and one of my teachers provided mini games for studying which I loved and thought was really effective. I did only have one teacher that gave little to no feedback, and did not provide much assignments so we could elaborate more on what we were learning. For example, our final consisted of filing a claim which included adding a CPT code. You would think that we would have assignments that consisted of filing claims or coding through out the course. Nope! Thankfully I had a text book that told you what to put where on the claim, and she provided the code and I got an A, but I might of just got an A because she was too lazy to take the time and grade it. This was a billing and reimbursement course too; one of the main subjects that I have to understand for this career. I passed the class though and the class I took afterwards reviewed billing and reimbursement again, so my knowledge on the topic is satisfactory. There is a problem with some of the multiple choice quizzes! I have had experience in one particular class where I know I answered a question right, but it would say it was a different answer. It sounds ridiculous, but I would double check in the text book after the quiz and I was in the right, not the quiz. The career services is awesome; this one woman J helped me prepare for an interview, and I was nervous for it, but she was supportive and gave great feed back during our mock interview which I believe greatly improved my interviewing skills. I am graduating in 4 days; it was a great experience, it was not perfect, but I was not expecting it to be.
This is ridiculous I have been having technical issues due to the instructor messing up on his set up for the class. I do the assignments he claims he hasn't received them I send evidence of them being done as confirmation and yet the instructor still gives me a 0 rather then heading it. I fear I will be failing out due to situations that are out of my control
I've been to three schools and this one has been the worst. The program director has to be the most useless woman on the planet. There are about 3 good instructors the rest are garbage. I might not even finish here because you aren't taught. You have to teach yourself. The biggest thing is that it always feels as if the teachers aren't actually there to help you, espically the director. It's always your fault when the whole class fails a test because you didn't study right. DO NOT GO HERE. IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!
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.
