ECPI University Reviews - Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration
It is sad to see so many bad reviews for this school. I have completed my LPN diploma program through them and my healthcare administration degree. When I think back to my LPN program, I can see why there could be so many negative comments. It is very expensive and some of the instructors were not good. But overall I had very good experience and great teachers who taught me a lot. (I graduated in 2009) When it comes to my healthcare administration degree...I cant say enough of good things about the program...It was not easy, but all my instructors (except 1) were great. Very knowledgeable, always had time for me and made sure I had what I need to be ready for the field. I have gotten a job as Practice Manager with major healthcare system prior to my graduation and am very glad I made a choice to join ECPI.
I attended the Va. Beach Medical Careers Institute campus. I found that you get out of the education experience what you put into it. Yes, some classes where harder than others. Yes, some instructors are harder than others, but you have to adapt to each situation and make the best possible outcome possible. This is exactly what you have to do in the selected field you will work in. No one cares about the reasons you can't, they want to know how you will. I have no complaints about ECPI/MCI, I got exactly what I expected from the program. My Director and Instructors expertly prepared me for the field of medicine I was studying for. Thank You ECPI/MCI.
I loved the accelerated program. Our professor did a great job integrating things we had previously learned throughout the program since it was such a fast pace. The best part of the degree is the externship. What better way to get hands on experience? My externship led to a full time position within my field before I even graduated. I think the most important thing is that you will only get out of the program what you put into it. I would recommend this program!
I could go on and on about this place, but I'll try not to sound like a commercial. All of my life I have learned what I need to know just so that I can pass a test. I didn't expect it to be any different when I enrolled in MCI. Now that I have been working in the healthcare field, I see how different this education was. The material was relevant and current. Most importantly, the teaching was like nothing I have ever experienced before. I actually learned it. I still know it. Any type of learner on any level can benefit from this school and this program. The thought, concern, and effort put into this program and its students is obvious and extremely appreciated. I am very proud of my degree, and I loved my experience at the school. I will always be grateful for the education I received. As far as tuition rates, let's be real! Every single student is given a breakdown before he or she is enrolled. Loans are explained before they are given. Everyone has to sign the entrance counseling form before accepting the loan. I am not sure why people are using this outlet to complain about the cost. Schedule an appointment to get some information. Meet with the director. Talk to some HCA students! Ask any of them. I am confident that you will hear all of what I have just said.
I have reviewed the comments before me and will say this to support my review title. For those of you that are reviewing comments to make your determination. Please understand that hard work grows great results. I have sat in the same class some complain of, and witnessed the very habits that eventually will communicate conflict and negativity because of there bad results. Reply to the complainers and ask them what there GPA is, then ask them to prove it by posting a copy of there latest unofficial transcript that can be delivered at anytime. I bet you the complainers played hooky, late assignment or just didn't do the assignments. They complain about how hard a class like statistics or psychology was when they missed many sessions...really how was you expected to pass? This is not a cartoon life, you actually have to do your part...Surprise, you don't do your job, the result is not in your favor. No different then your job whether it is rite aid or the military...you don't perform it will reflect in your evaluation. At ECPI, your evaluation is the grade you earned. Don't whine about, except it and make it better. You must be prepared to work hard and the results will be commendable, I promise you. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.94 GPA...BS in Healthcare Administration. One writer complained about rule changes...OK? And? We change just like laws and ethics that are updated at your organization. So stop complaining and soldier this experience. This is your life experience and your new employer will asked how you took advantage of your experience in school. Did you do the work? Prove it with the transcript. If not, How can an employer expect you to do there's? People complaining about 18 months of a high acceleration program...try 30 months for the bachelors degree.
I LOVE THIS COLLEGE. Student support is always available. My guidance coulselor calls me weekly and goes over my porgress. If I need to improve on anything we discuss a plan and put it into action. My professors are AMAZING. They work with and always ask me if I need help with anything. The college it self pushes you to suceed.
