"This can be incredibly difficult and time consuming but the support of my instructors and extra help they provided make it easier. With spending time after class with Mrs. Weible going over math, extra tutoring and resources from Mrs. Good and Dr. Sadlers door always being open, and Dr. Wilson’s constant they help you to feel supported in every way."

"Overall I would say this school pushes students so that they can pass the NCLEX first try. The ADN program is not easy as it shouldn't be. I started off with roughly 30 people in my class and I am finishing this program with 3 other classmates. As a student you need to realize just how much work nursing school is going to take and how hard the material is going to be tested. They are not joking in the interview for this program that you have to put your life on hold and really focus on school. I have a background in the medical field that helped me and gave me a base for my knowledge to grow. Many of my instructors in nursing school helped me grow in various different ways over the 20 months I was there. While I feel like this program is great and helps you complete your nursing degree quickly, I think it is important for any future students to be prepared to put the work and time in so they will be able to succeed. They don't make it easy but then again taking care of patients is not easy. I have not taken the NCLEX yet but feel pretty prepared for it and feel that this school has helped me get there. Some of the things I found helpful that the school gave me was ATI, ATI test bank, PowerPoints, and access to different materials. As with any school there is room for improvement. I would love to see more teaching in the class rooms and less youtube videos. This is a personal preference as I feel as if I can watch these videos at home and that class time should be used for the instructor to teach the material not someone else. I also feel like there should be more focus on exam preparation. Overall if you are looking for a good nursing program that is quick and you have the time to do it, then this is the place for you!"

"Earned my nursing degree at Parma. Overall, I had a good experience while there. The support going through the program and then prepping to take the NCLEX was helpful. I was offered a position at a facility I was targeting at a great salary. Bryant & Stratton helped me to get where i wanted to be!"

"Believe the Reviews!!!! Save your money and run as fast as you can. When they say for profit it's just that money for the school they do not care about the student's level of education that they are giving you. I paid thousands to be a self-taught student. The nursing failure rates are through the roof at about 90% failure rates. They have grading scales and percentages on exams that don't make sense. They make you do work that only counts if your exam scores are 70 and if you fall short all your work and papers are not graded, But they make you do the work anyway. The teacher never taught important fundamentals to nurse such as ABG, and med math but surprise tested us on these topics blindsiding students and setting them up for failure with topic lists that had NOTHING to do with the exams. Its like going to nursing school but testing you on Building codes. Students were clueless come test time. Leading to failure of course. Not to mention the fancy state of the Art Sim lab we NEVER got to use or never having nursing supplies to practice broken mannequins that did not work. They force students to clear to get schedules for the next semester usually 1,800 per semester once they have their money and you clear. they fail you with nothing more than walking price tags and easy predatory education. The nursing shortage starts at schools like this making financial gain to line pockets and not giving students an education they have paid for and they KNOW it. Please RUN and apply elsewhere, they sucker you in with anything you want to hear. Once you are in they will drain you of everything!!!"

"I graduated from Bryant & Stratton College- Hampton in December 2020. I still have not received my diploma. Over the last year, I have been calling and asking to have it mailed and I have been to the campus to request it but my attempts have been unsuccessful. When I called the office, the representative stated that someone would call me back. I have also left messages on the voicemail. I have never received a call back. At this point, I NEED the diploma and have been trying to work with the school for a year. This is ridiculous. I should have it by now. Someone needs to assist with getting this taken care of. I will keep complaining to anyone and everyone until I get the diploma that I have worked so hard to obtain."

"Please understand that this review is not coming from a place of bitterness, just honesty based on my own experience. I enrolled into BS in may of 2022, I did not do well my first semester due to personal reasons. First, this whole 70 exam average and 70 class average set students up for failure. I passed my class with a 85 but my exam average was 68.9 leading me to repeat the class, cool. Got to my 3rd semester which is med surg and pharm. Pharm was rough, the first 2 exams we had class virtual so grades were trash. my instructor came back before the 3rd exam and things got better. what hurt me was taking the ATI proctored, we needed a 71 and I got a 70. that grade does not go into the grade book. if you get anything under the required score then you get a 0. my grade dropped 10 points leading me to need a 94 on the final to pass the class. My instructor was awesome and i can admit that my issues came from studying wrong and overthinking. AS FOR MED SURG...honey, first of all, im just going to flat out say that my "instructor" did not teach. We would have an exam on 4 systems to only be tested on one. when we took the 1st exam everyone failed so bad. it was supposed to be on respiratory, cardio, perioperative and cancer. the entire exam was on HIV. The exam was the same way, misleading. I went to the DON crying expressing my concerns because i was worried about failing. she wrote on a sticky not "level upRN, Mark Klimek"...i explained to her that i bought both systems and still failed. the day of second exam my instructor was irritated and got snappy with a student because she was upset about her grade. i was literally told by the DON that the program is designed for us to teach ourselves. I had so much anxiety before every exam because i never knew what i was being tested over. as a class we made study guides and crammed so much info in our heads until we were mentally and emotionally exhausted from being worried about over studying to studying the wrong stuff. we went to ever tutoring session which was just the instructor asking us what we wanted to know. i tried hard to figure out what i couldve done differently to pass but i cant think of one. nobody cares and they are all about money. so many people got to the end and failed out. they have instructors that feel like they are already nurse so why care? i sent an email to the BON about my concerns as well. they make this program extremely difficult to get through. im sorry if im all over the place..there is alot more that i could say but it would be days before i finish! RUN FAR AWAY. my friend left VA Beach and went to Hampton and i shouldve listened when she told me to leave."

"Please, please please, I know this is lengthy but hear me when I say RUN. RUN AS FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN FROM THIS GOD AWFUL PLACE!!! I, like you reading this, also took the time to read multiple reviews regarding this school. I thought to myself, "ehh all those bad reviews are probably from people who didn't work hard enough and failed". WRONG. I was so very wrong. Regardless of how hard you work, whether its quitting a job to focus solely on school, distance yourself from distractions including family, whatever it is. There is little you can do to succeed in this program and I swear that is the truth. I am still a current student, so no, I am not "one of the one's who failed" however I WISH I WISH I WISH I would have gone to ECPI or TCC or anywhere else but here. I was a Dean's list student. That disappeared the quickly. They assign professors to teach classes they have never taught before or express they do not want to teach and are still forced to teach. So you now have professors who not only don't know how to teach hardly at all other than talking at you then getting visibly frustrated when you don't know the answer. If you enjoy teaching yourself then this is the place for you because that is exactly what you will be doing and they will even tell you that to your face. Every semester there is some new professor that comes around and will last maybe 2 semesters max. At this moment, there is only 1 professor to my knowledge, that has been there since the start of my program last year. Other that that everyone is fairly new. They will sell you on their state of the art sim lab. THAT IS A JOKE AND COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME. I swear to you I couldn't make this up if I tried. The simulation mannequins that they have are supposed to move, talk, breathe, blink, you name it. I have NOT ONCE seen any of these mannequins so much as blink at least one eye. Some classes are combo classes meaning you have lecture the first 3 hours then lab the last 2 hours of class. Semesters are 15 weeks long and I can honestly say we had at a maximum of 6 maybe 7 actual lab simulations. Even with those labs we were told we had to "pretend" to do the skill as there was not enough supplies for everyone. HOW?!?! The Nursing Program alone for Bryant & Stratton brings in at least 70% of the schools money. Yet there is a big fancy lounge for people to sit and play video games all day. Oh and they even offer a $10,000 scholarship for anyone who joins the esports club. It is a club for students to sit there and play video games all day. AGAIN I SWEAR BY IT. They've got big fancy chairs and fancy LED lights all around the room and comfy couches....and yet the Nursing program doesn't have enough supplies for us to properly practice our skills. We then look like idiots when we attend clinicals as we are SEVERELY unprepared. If you have any type of medical background that is the only thing that saves you in the clinical setting. If you email the Nursing director you will probably receive a response about 30% of the time, she is never in her office, and she loves to take frequent vacations/time off. So she is useless when you need assistance on anything. Please, I am begging you from the literal bottom of my heart. Go somewhere else. Seriously, save yourself the time, money, and unnecessary stress. I'm not even going to dive deep into financial aid, but just know they have messed up not only mine but fellow classmates FAFSA and out of pocket payments, not once but multiple times. Oh and yes, be prepared to pay out of pocket WHILE you are taking classes. Someone else in another review said it best, this place is a BUSINESS, A FOR PROFIT INSTITUTION!! All they care about is the money. You will pay ridiculous amounts of money for an absolutely garbage program. They were so close to losing their accreditation last semester and I wish they would have so they can stop robbing these innocent people who are just trying to better themselves. Oh and BTW at the end of every course you are asked to fill out surveys on the course instructor. When we asked why the school does not look at or listen to our reviews, a faculty member stated and I quote "Oh those are only for accreditation purposes" and proceeded to roll her eyes."

"As much as I would like to write a story book. Do not go to this school for Nursing! Read, read, read the policies they are strict.. This school/Dean of nursing sets you up to fail or retake classses. I thought it was perfect because prerequisites were included. I was so wrong. They have only had 2 graduates pass this previous semester, the rest failed out. They stay trying to find a reason to fail you or retake a course. They are very shady and it is absolutely a BUSINESS so you do not matter! You are absolutely better off at another school. Read all the reviews on here. They are all absolutely true. So future nurses please find another school."

"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."

"(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."

"I was a previous nursing student in the Milwaukee market, and I 110% agree with the majority of the statements made by the other students of this institution. STAY AWAY and DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!! Here is my experience: -I was met with a friendly admissions officer who promised me everything under the sun and sold me a bill of goods...that being a flexible schedule, instructors who are professionals in the nursing field, understanding and helpful, and a "wonderful financial aid and office staff that work for YOU as the student". (Hahahahaha!) -My first semester went very smooth, however, I took issue with the fact that my A&P 1 professor's background was working at a veterinarian's office and not in the healthcare field. But she was a very nice lady and was actually one of the best teacher's that I have had there. -My second semester was when my eyes were opened and I could see that all of the student concerns didn't matter, and the front office could care less if we had problems learning/learning a teacher's style of teaching, (or in our case, lack there of!), and did absolutely nothing to help us. We had a microbiology instructor with a known history of not teaching well and talking down to students as if they were stupid. She taught the class as if we were 5th semester microbiology majors. So a group of us got fed up and we went to our academic advisors and complained. Nothing ever happened or was changed to help us in the class. We were supposed to hear from the head of the Science department and meet with him and the guy never got in touch with us, even when we emailed him. We were IGNORED! -Third Semester was a complete joke. Med/Surg 1 clinical, lab and lecture were absolutely comical. A few of the students were running around a hospital at clinical that couldn't even do an assessment on a patient. We had one guy who played dumb since day 1 and got out of doing any sort of patient care because he was so scared and he didn't know, (or want to learn or try), what to do because he was an ex-truck driver. He said he was only doing this because he said his wife made him. But for the 2nd straight semester, the clinical instructor passed him right through, yet he couldn't do anything but vitals on a patient and he was completely clueless on a lot of things, including Epic charting. Med/Surg 1 lab was completely laughable. WE, (the students), were expected to teach the class on various skills such as inserting IV's, trach care, NG tube insertion, insulin, etc when the teacher sat there and didn't lift a finger to help us. She would just spat out that "that isn't right", or "that's not how I do it", even when it said it in the Nursing Fundamentals book. We would go to test off on our skills for that week and she'd just sit there and pass everybody on their weekly assessments, even if people didn't know what the hell they were doing. Med/Surg 1 lecture was basically read the chapters yourself and go to class for the whole time but you'd get about 4 20 minute breaks throughout the 3 hour lecture. We literally learned nothing from the Professor, and when it came to exam time, you'd see A TON of questions on the exams on material that we never even went over or discussed, making it ridiculously unfair. To wrap up 3rd semester we come to Pharmacology...Be ready to blow through 2 or even 3 chapters a class period with Professor. So much material spewed out every class period and all your grade consists of are weekly quizzes, exams and 1 project. She gives no other points. Be prepared to take an "ATI assessment" that you must "level", (pass), with a 71.1% or you get a 0 and your grade will drop 9% and you will most likely fail the course. I've heard numerous people reach out to the Dean and academic advisors and nothing being done about this woman's teaching style and the ridiculous ATI Leveling test that you will have to take in all 3rd-5th semester nursing classes and Pharmacology. You're set up to fail here and I had enough. Basically the best advice I can give you is to steer clear, and I just echo all the other students' statements of all this "College" wants is your money. You cannot pick your own schedule, some person in the office picks it for you and you're at the mercy of them honoring your 3 choices that you prefer. The financial aid office staff are nothing but a bunch of lazy, rude, uneducated people who don't get you your paperwork on time and make promises to you that they can't uphold. The same goes for most of the academic advisors. Any good people who work there get fed up with working 5-6 days a week and they leave, and then the students are stuck with uneducated, incompetent, lazy advisors who NEVER go to bat for you, the student. Just like the Dean of Nursing...she knows about many problems with the nursing instructors and she does nothing to help students. I and many others have heard she is not a nice person and tells you if you don't like it, go somewhere else. Sometimes the faster, quicker route for an education is not the right way to in this case for this school. You, as the student pay roughly $9,000/semester and you don't get taught much of anything and you end up frustrated, angry, and you teach yourself all of the material that you should be getting taught in class. Please make the right decision and don't go to this school. But most importantly: NONE OF THEIR CREDITS TRANSFER to other colleges!!!! Don't waste your time and money!! Good luck to you all!"

"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!"

"I was 44 finally raised my children, quit my job, and ready to be able to solely focus on what I had waited to do my whole life! I drove 1 hr and 20min daily and even longer to clinical each way. Was on the deans list. Received attendance certificates regularly. Our DON change 3-4 times while I attended BS. In 3rd semester I got had an almost flat tire exiting the Hwy 5 miles from school, stopped filled it, got to school 6 min late on exam day was denied that exam. A fellow student was 5 min late but given the exam. The 0 for that exam literally caused me to flail that class by 1%. My grade prior was that strong. I just had to suck it up and move on. Knowing all instructors just rescheduled students for missed exams was protocol, and another student had been late didnt make a difference in my appeal. 4th semester my grandson born premature at less than 3 lbs a week old was having seizures and we didnt know if he would survive.I was at my clinical site my last day of clinicals. I asked my preceptor if I could start early so I might leave early and I would also call instructor to request same, she was fine with that. When instructor arrived she gave me permission to leave early and later said she did not and I was accused of leaving my clinical site early without permission and being academically dishonest That meant 2 failed nursing classes and I was dismissed from the nursing program 3 weeks prior to completing 4th semester. I academically passed everything, I got Level 3 on ATIs. The DON sat across from the table and said I was a liar! I showed up to a full 8 hours of my clinical knowing the condition of my first born, and only grandchild as I took my education seriously and knew other situations of fellow students with this school and my previous experience. I was not going to just walk out of a clinical site. The instructor did finally admit she had given me permission to leave when I had proof, she had accidentally emailed me her own personal notes where she had written down the events of that day. However, when presented that I was then cited with a violation of having my cellphone on my person, and using it at a clinical site! I did have it, and I only used it outside on my break to text my instructor. The preceptor actually had me give my daughter the direct number to the room I was working in so I could be called in case of an emergency! The worst part was that the preceptor would discuss her personal relationships etc and was not very professional and I was a little Leary to speak with my instructor as some of the staff there knew my instructor for many years. In the end the preceptor who should have been writing weekly evaluations and did not, then stated I had not requested to leave early, and a few other thing on my final evaluation unfavorable to me. Now if I was doing poorly I would think, I would not have been allowed to administer medications, etc on my own as I had been doing and she would have brought some of this to someones attention prior to 2 was after my last clinical day? It was a huge conspiracy of people at the clinical site trying to cover the instructor who allowed me to leave then lied for fear of being caught lying and when I could prove she lied BS had to save face to hold on to that instructor so they made up another reason. I recorded my meeting with them. They were insulting, rude, and demeaning. I have never had a group of people try so hard to belittle me in my life. I had instructors in every other class I had taken there supporting me and were disgusted by this whole situation, however also fearful of losing their jobs due to who was in charge of the nursing program at that time. I have the financial ability to obtain legal counsel to file a lawsuit, however I am not that person. Now BS calls me on a regular basis to ask if I would like to take the LPN program? Really? $30,000 is an expensive life lesson to learn how cruel and dishonest people are in this world. However, I chose not to be a disgusting person, I have paid the majority of it and I hold my head high and my conscious is clear because I know I didnt do wrong and I do have integrity, morals, and ethics."

"The Nursing Program at Bryant & Stratton College in Eastlake OH is a joke. This school continuously and repeatedly "misplaces" student's sensitive personal information including transcripts, causing the student to have to pay out of pocket to replace it. The school did not have clinical instructors in place prior to the start of the semester, which caused several students to be set back in required clinical hours. When instructors were finally hired, they were not trained in the hospital setting, nor on the computer system used. If a student does choose to pursue the nursing program here, please be sure to get in the instructor's and the program directors good graces, because favoritism runs rampant here. A student that just happened to buy an instructor's house was afforded another opportunity to take a test that the rest of the student's did not. While "remediation" students for a math test, the program coordinator did not know the required formula. Nursing tutors fail out of the program. Class size drops by half from one semester to the next. One can attempt to get assistance from some of the instructors,and while they state that they offer it, they do not. Notes provided by some instructors do not correspond to what is being taught (as in referring to page numbers that were completely wrong), nothing is organized, the program director sends out emails regarding math testing to the wrong people, sends things months late..... the list sadly goes on. Oh yes, and the school is on provisional approval from the state board of nursing due to graduating students failing to pass the NCLEX-RN on the first attempt. All of this while collecting tens of thousands per student, while failing students by points, or fractions of points."

"To start off this place is a joke. Teachers get excited about when they can fail students, and when you go to talk to the Dean she treats you as if you are 8 years old, dismisses you right away as if no one can talk bad about her staff. Also there is no one that is above her that you can talk too, even in New York they won't do anything. SO the Dean can do whatever she wants. This is the most unprofessional school that I have ever attended. Then was told that the LPN/LVN program was accredited when it is not. This school just lures people here so that they can get their money. And the commercial and everything says their schedule is flexible which is another lie. There are a few teachers that I have absolutely enjoyed and have learned a lot from but aside from that, like stated above, most of the teacher get their jollies from failing students. BUT if you kiss their butt they might let you pass."
