"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 Sc/va lpn program will overcharge students with poorly disclosed fees, i witnessed bias teachers try to purposely fail students, give unfair grades passing who they personally think deserves it by adding points. I have been overcharged, accused of ridiculous accusations, and even failed a class unfairly.. the fairly new small group employees teach classes they know little about. I had had teachers who should have not been hired. And some who are amazing. There are thousands of dollars of hidden fees. The things i have witnessed and been through is unjustified and has made me hesitant and fearful of continueing my education with this campus. However i graduated and fought through the strong, i believe my intelligence is the only way i made it out and built my skills. In A class of 17 usually 1/3 graduates."

"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 school is great when you first come in. They make you feel positive, but honestly they are quite expensive their courses are only good for 2 years their credits don't transfer if you fail a course and have to retake you are charged for that they come up with meetings for you to go to when you want to start back and nobody wants to sit and audit a class and not be able to move on with their classmates even though they passed the class one student they told had to pass 85 or higher when 80 is passing they don't go by their college rule of 80 passing really don't waste your money on this school u will be in debt it's a fast pace program so if you are ready for lack of sleep no life but school come on in but once you get it in your stuck cause again their courses don't transfer so you wud be starting everything over if you decided to leave!"

"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."
