I am currently going online and to be honest this school is too expensive smh I am having a issue with making up work because the bad weather we have been having lately I fell behind on some assignments my instructor just gave me a zero however I noticed other students fallen behind she is willing to work with them I am not happy at all and I feel like I have been overlooked. Go to a community college they are more understanding and willing to work with you.
I loved the MA program at Bryant! I have heard reviews across the board, but my personal experience at Bryant was great. The instructors were very kind and informative. They were extremely helpful and actually care about your success. Of course there were courses that were difficult, but there was always someone there to help you. There were many tools as well to help. My time flew by and I graduated in August this year. I am continuing on for my BHA in November. There are many different learning styles that each instructors will use. Visual and hands on learning were definitely taught.
This school will give you more stress, than it is worth. Bryant and Stratton Parma Campus BSN program is the worst decision I have ever made. The program director is the worst person I have ever meet. There are maybe 2 good nursing teachers and the rest are garbage. I feel like I have learned nothing all of my time here. It is the worst experience of my life. Mrs. D is one of the teacher in the biology departments and she is the best person and the best teacher in the whole world. I LOVE MRS. D!! Other than Mrs.D this school has been a complete wast of time. I usually do not read these kind of things, but I should have before I signed up. Nursing school is very tough and chaotic, but this school likes to take it to a new level. The clinical experience is good, but it is also chaotic. They are very unorganized and they are very carefree. No one really care if you get an education at all. The teachers are not in the right position to do their jobs, and they are set up to fail. If there are problems, the teachers cannot do anything, and the director dose not care. It seems like most of the teachers and especially the program director is just in it for the money. The nursing program had no interest in teaching or in education in general. The only reason you should come to this school is to visit Mrs.D. Other than that, you are wasting your time and money. I highly suggest you never ever ever ever come to this school, it will save you a lot of time, money and hassle; A lot of hassle!
I would NOT recommend going to this "college." This "college" is one huge joke because every semester the graduation date kept getting pushed back and the price to attend classes kept rising. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY going to this "college" because you will regret it in the long run. I am just glad that I came to my senses and removed myself from this "college."
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SCHOOL!! I attended for ONE semester, I couldn't take any more of it. The teachers are a joke, they don't teach they review things you've learned in middle and high school. The financial aid process is a SCAM! I really think they are keeping money that they receive from students loans and grants, and then try to pass it off as a "balance" that the student owes! BS stands for B******* because that's what this school is. A bunch of fraudsters who do not care about educating people just about taking their money!
B&S just takes your money. They tell you they will find an internship for you but you end up doing the work finding it. You don't use the textbooks at all. And basically, you can get a grade of an A without even trying, because apparently everybody does
From my first semester to my very last semester was HORRIBLE I honestly don't know where I found the strength to continue because so many times between the professors, the students, and the staff as a whole I experienced racism, slander, and discrimination. When I tried to report it I was treated as the one being "insubordinate" to use their words. I got an A in my med term class but failed it due to a project that I was never told was mandatory in order to pass the class. it's funny because even though the same teachers work at both campuses their entire personality changes depending on which campus you go to. The faculty gossips about the students in the staff lounge, they show favoritism when students ask for help of clarification on a paper/project. When I was in my final semester doing my internship a professor from the college was working there and this staff brought DRAMA to the internship site bringing up past situations that should not have even been mentioned and had we been in the actual work world (which they were but I was not being that it was just an internship) that was illegal and they could/should have cost/lost their job. What they taught us in the classroom was NOT what was on the CMA EXAMS!! I repeat WHAT THEY TAUGHT US IN THE CLASSROOM WAS NOT WHAT WAS ON THE CMA EXAMS!!! On the exam there were many questions (almost half the exam to be exact) that were asking us to give a diagnosis of the patient which everyone who studies medical assisting KNOWS that is against the law for us to give a diagnosis being that it is OUT OF OUR SCOPE OF PRACTICE!!! F****** JOKE AND NOT WORTH THE 35,000 DOLLARS Just go to community college you will get your money's worth there.
Richmond campus of Bryant and Stratton was horrible. Advisers con you into their programs, and teachers do not know what they are teaching and are very unorganized. Director of nursing Mrs. E. is a condescending individual who only cares about herself. I left their program and am now stuck with the bill. They never informed students of clinical locations being 2 hrs away, never informed students of having to pass a conversions test in order to stay in their program and never informed students that if they left they would be responsible for the cost of the program. Once you leave they take away your financial aid that was promised to you and are billed for the entire amount.
Currently I am an LPN student in my last semester of the program and I will not be continuing my nursing degree at this school. I came to Bryant and Stratton to start in the RN program, but they said I don't have Amy experience being a nurse so I would be better off in the LPN program to get some expierence. I decided to give it a shot to get some expiernce. I was told the LPN program was accredited to find out 2nd semester it was not. First semester I really enjoyed the program and I met a lot of cool people. Second semester was terrible and such a bad experience. I had many professors who did not care to help you. I went out of the way many times to get extra help and I was thrown to the side. Luckly I somehow I passed, but unfortunately I lost a lot of classmates. Second semster was a big struggle due to careless professors. If the majority of a class is failing it's the not the students it's clearly the professor. The dean of nursing seems all sweet, but is a joke. Professors who should NOT be teaching are still there just because they are buddy buddy with the dean. They prepare you for the NCLEX by using NCLEX question which makes sense, but we need to learn the curriculum first to be able to apply it. So far third semester has been pretty decent. You pay a lot of money out of pocket since it is a for profit school to basically teach yourself. If I'm sitting in class for 2-5 hours I expect to learn and not have to spend 4+ hours a night having to teach myself. I understand you need to read and do your work, but I should be meeting professors half way not 3/4 or the way. Overall my expierence so far hasn't been terrible, but it hasn't been great either. I wouldn't recommend this college to anyone. It's a waste of time and money. They say on commercials they have flexible schedules, but as a full time student I could never work a decent job, pay for bills and have a family. You are there 5 days a week from 9am-5pm sometimes earlier sometimes later. I am not lazy and I don't expect nursing to be easy at all, but this "college" is a joke and seriously needs some revisions done so students can enjoy their time there.
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.
