Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Grand Canyon University is a great school to go to especially after having received your first degree. I received my Masters degree from GCU after first getting my bachelor's degree. GCUs online courses are challenging and take dedication and hard work, and determination to complete. But I believe it was well worth the effort. Their instructors are knowledgeable, professional, and will work with you as long as you keep the lines of communication open and keep up with your course requirements, and attempt to meet the deadlines. Finally, the mature student should have no problem achieving success at GCU.

I should have read reviews before signing up for a class. paid so much money on books that I could have gotten free online. Sent professor 5 emails to discuss issues in the class, claimed he never received any of my emails. Counselor claimed to she called me several times and was not able to reach me. I don't like when people lie to cover themselves.

Highly recommend. Very user friendly format and lots of support. I received both my BSN and MSN degrees from GCU. will recommend this school to anyone that's ready to get it done quick . I would go back for my PHd if I ever decide to pursue. I was an online student and referred a friend who also had a great experience.

Only into my second online course with this university and it is awful. The instructor (I will leave out Professor as she doesn't deserve that title) will disappear for days- When the university did finally track her down (the first time)she was full of excuses of why she didn't put us into groups and respond to emails and online inquiries; i.e. her brother was home from the army, she has three other classes she is teaching, and so on. Well when you pay close to $3000 for one course you could care less you just want an education. Oh and she doesn't care if you have issues you better be online daily!

I obtained my BSN online from the University of Phoenix in 2014, but registered for my online MSN at GCU because their per credit hour cost is significantly lower. I was a traditional student for my ADN and I have had 8 years of clinical experience before enrolling in my MSN. I too have had similar, less than acceptable, experience as some of you with actual conversations with financial aid officers and student advisers. Initially they are more than eager to meet your needs and then phone calls and check-ins become few and far between (However, this seems to be the case with many colleges/universities). The only time I hear from my student adviser is when I have to pay for my next/upcoming course- this is a little disappointing. All that said, the curriculum is comprehensive and professors are both knowledgeable and prompt with their responses. I cannot speak for other programs, but if you are a self-motivated individual looking to further your nursing degree with an emphasis in education, I recommend this program. Best of luck!

I completed RN-BSN at GCU and just LOVE IT! I am just starting MSN in Education. It has been GREAT for the first five weeks. My professor Dr Cheryl Williams is great and so glad I am in her class. I would love to be in her class for my next two courses. She communicate well with students. She's very positive. Students learn a lot from her posts replies to you. Of course school is very stressful and no school is easy. But instructors at GCU are VERY HELPFUL! I LOVE this school and have nothing to complaint about. I do study every day and working two RN jobs. If I can do it...everyone can! All my instructors are very knowledgeable, kind and understanding. They do understand your stress, your school and work. No one make things difficult for students. Professor Steve Arnett real cool and great. He wrote me a paragraph in my post encouraged me to go on with MSN (I didn't think I would do it). Thanks to Professor Arnett and my counselors...I feel much better now about MSN programs. My two daughters also are nurses and I (as their mother) strongly encourage them to start MSN program with GCU. Library staffs also GREAT. Everyone are so helpful and professionals. After graduated I received salary increased from my two jobs and I feel much more confident in my position as a nurse (and future MSN). Don't be discouraged by reading some negative comments about GCU or staffs. And the cost for both programs are not bad. Actually much cheaper compare to MOST colleges I checked out. Many nurses in my hospital are current students or graduated from GCU and they also LOVE this school. They given us nurses scholarship money to attend school and happy that hospital nurses really love GCU.

I attended GCU to complete my BSN and decided to acquire my MSN in nursing education. I have attended campus colleges and was apprehensive to do an online course, but after taking classes with GCU I could not have been happier with the education I received. All classes were challenging with exceptionally knowledgeable, caring facilitators. The support available from all departments was helpful and sincere. The communication with instructors, classmates, and advisers was exceptional. Sharing of life experiences making lifelong friends around the world expands knowledge and cultural experiences. Great university all around!

I'm a student and an employee at GCU.. This is nothing but a diploma mill institution. You will not gain anything out of this place, except a debt for the next 10+ years. They will recruit anyone, and I mean anyone.. Accelerated nursing program, class you can finish in 5 weeks, (good luck retaining anything valuable). There are people that failed nursing acceptance exam 4 times, and still got accepted. Management is joke. 90% are former employees from University of Phoenix. Don't be fooled by "Christian University" . They are publicly traded and are after one thing, and one thing only, profit! Be smart and due diligence before committing to this institution.

I enjoyed the classes and the staff made the experience very rewarding. When I had to change my major to accommodate where I work, the staff were easy to work with and made sure to transfer as many classes as possible.
