"The program that is offered from ECPI university is amazing! You’re able to get your nursing degree in less than a year or two I would absolutely recommend the school to any, and everybody! The professors are amazing, they allow you to text or call them right at your fingertips, plenty of tutoring, and the staff in general is just absolutely amazing! I love ECPI university, and I appreciate them l getting me to my nursing career. My nursing journey does not stop here. I will be going back for my RN degree! Thank you ECPI university!!!"

"When I first started the program, it was the beginning of COVID. I started off virtual for a while. The instructors were very helpful as much as they could. Once we were transitioned back onto campus, everything started to get a bit easier for me because I did a lot of skills hands on. That's how I learn. The administrators and instructors guided me in a path to get me to stop thinking like a CNA and think more of a Nurse. They believed in me. They saw something that I didn't see in myself. I've struggled a lot and had a couple of setbacks along with a ligament sprain injury. They helped me and guided me to pull through. I overcame my struggles and hurdles. I had...well have a great support system with them. I'm glad they gave me the opportunity and were there to see me strive for success. Great experience with them."
Not happy

"This school is a joke. Don't waste your time thinking about going here. The teachers are incompetent and don't seem to know what their teaching. The grades seem to be pulled out of thin air with no rim or reason why one passes and the the other fails. You can fell every test and still pass because the teachers are allowed to shave points. The more popular you are with the teacher the better your grads. No explanation as to where your money has gone. A hand written (in pencil) note was provided to me once I asked for it. 30K gone with no degree. Even with financial aid I was turned in to tuition options for a $3,000 with no explanation as to why. No one will return my calls. This has been turned in as a negative mark on my credit report. The school should be shut down."

"This school is a joke as everyone else stated. There are a couple of nice faculty members, but everyone else is literally useless. The new nursing director is not nice, doesn't respond to emails, and she seems like she doesn't take her job seriously. There is no form of professional communication between the faculty and students. It doesn't even seem like they communicate to each other! Due to COVID-19, we had to take all classes online, EXCUSE ME BUT HOW DO I LEARN INJECTIONS, IV'S, FOLEYS, ETC. IF I CAN'T PRACTICE ON ANYTHING???! It frustrates me that we're allowed to go to clinical rotations (so far) at the hospital where we're in close contact with nurses, other students, PATIENTS, etc. but we're not allowed to come to campus to practice our skills on some mannequins?? Come on now. Also, it's EXPENSIVE ASF. If you're trying to get an LPN degree, don't do it at ECPI."

"BEWARE. SERIOUSLY CONSIDER ANOTHER SCHOOL. HUGE SCAM. Ecpi will fill your head with how great they are, that they have top notch technology and instructors. This is a lie. They will tell you how flexible they are and how their passing rate is so high. What they dont tell you is- requirements and rules are constantly changing, there is no consistency, you will get your schedule last minute and more than likely it will be wrong or it will change, they will find a reason to drop you no matter how high your GPA is, they do not care about you as a student they simply see you as a cash cow. They will keep you in the program as long as they can by making you sit out semesters and playing God waiting to join again. They will milk every cent out of you then if they think you will not pass the NCLEX they will force you to withdraw. This is why their passing rate is so "high". They demand excellence but won't even meet you half way, hell they won't even take a step. Once you are in you learn very quickly something isn't right, you start looking into other schools to find most of your hard earned credits do NOT transfer. They have you stuck and right where they want you. If you enjoy being talked down to, mass confusion, being treated like a child as a grown adult, having to adapt to last minute changes, instructors that are more than miserable themselves, and being stressed out all the time this is the school for you. If not, please take your money and dignity elsewhere."

"Do not do it. They don’t care about you listen to the reviews. Go to a community college and do it the right way. We always took test online but they used a crappy app on Apple App Store to “monitor” us. When COVID happened we had to take the test on the crappy app at home. The app booted me out of my math test 3 times and i wasn’t allowed to go back and finish when i had at least 30 minutes left. The so called teacher we had said since i had 2 questions left that i wouldn’t be allowed to use the time i had left. I ALWAYS go back to check my work and we’ve been taught anyways to go back and check work growing up. I decided just to cut ties because the teaching materials was trash. The time frame they wanted everything to happen on was trash. We had projects to do that really didn’t teach us anything which was a waste of time. Learning 2 chapters on Monday then test on it Wednesday then learn 1 more chapter on Wednesday to do a BIG test Friday and sometimes for the big test on Friday to contain NOTHING WE LEARNED was irritating. Don’t waste your time. You basically teach yourself."

"The lpn program is $35000!!! And is 14 months long. I honestly thought someone made a mistake someone got the numbers wrong. The national average for the lpn program is $17000 with programs as short as 10 months. Please review the schools and costs first before making any agreements."

"The program is great so far. Classes are very informative and hands on. They give you the skills you need for the career you will be going in to. My teachers teach very well. Professionalism is also intact with the program (i.e. scrubs, neat hair, and other usual professional attire). Classes are small and im able to focus. There are resources when needed. Very friendly campus that i attend."

"This school is very money driven they do not care about there students. There staff is very unprofessional and not very supportive in at the location I was at. The upper administration does not care to speak to the students when they have an issue so that open door policy is a bunch of bull crap."

"This school was way too expensive, the teachers and classes were a joke. At the clinical sites we just sat around instead of actually being hands on with patients. I regret ever going to this school. I did graduate and was able to get a job, but I also had lots of medical field experience prior to going to ECPI (CNA I, CNA II, Phlebotomy)."

"I find this school a joke. They don't follow the bi laws the write in there hand book. Which states 3 failures no reinstatement. I didnty pass 2 courses by 3/10 of a point, and was not reinstated .DON plays favorites she knows people cheat, let people come to class even though they failed. Told students to come to class untill they catch you did nt pass. Was told what to do, to be Restarted. From letter sent no accept. They don't follow hand book rules. Not a good school."
