Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2024

Duquesne talks a great game but unfortunately doesn't deliver. Looking specifically for a doctoral program that focused on Nursing education I applied. They state they have a concentration in nursing ed and forensic nursing but it turns out that they really don't. And you have to arrange all of your own clinical experiences? Really a huge disadvantage! Tuition is very high and with the recent reorganization things are a bit muddled. Withdrew my app at my earliest convenience and have NO regrets. Choose carefully. The name isn't what it used to be.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2019

My decision to attend Duquesne University was by far the worst decision of my life. The first year of the program was wonderful, however, they experienced a leadership change that has desimmated the ability of the school to provide a quality education. If you are looking to spend a lot of money and be left to educate yourself, find clinical sites without assistance (which most of them are deemed unacceptable by the professors) and work with a faculty that is engaged in making your student experience exceptionally awful, then Duquesne is the place for you!

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

Not really recommended at least until they become more prominent in the area. They are in the middle of a huge health system and because they do NOT have any good relationship, it is extremely difficult to set up contracts once the school is mentioned. Even offices 4+ hours away have no good comments on the school. they are EXTREMELY disorganized, their on-campus is a JOKE (no skills, just clustered chaos). The instructors are very unorganized, they do not hold them to the standards of the students, they are very inconsistent. Look elsewhere! You are only paying for the name and the "catholic" (only they aren't considered religious enough to reap the benefits as an employer as being a "religious institution") tuition is extremely outrageous for the rushed, unorganized and non valuable 'education"

School was ok. I think I would have benefited from going to another institution. School is not really diverse. At all. I understand that diversity is within all aspects, but even minimal aspects of diversity were not expressed. Not even among the faculty and professors.
