I went to the Fort Myers Keiser campus for the accelerated nursing program. This was the biggest mistake I could have ever made! Teachers were harsh, lacked empathy, care, and had no desire to help students do the best they can. It was more like an adult day care for them, clock in tell us a few things that didnt relate to any exam we ever took, lecture us on what color socks, shoes, and how other silly rules they have in place and clock out. We literally had to teach ourselves and read the entire book for majority of these classes. We couldnt find a single professor that cared to guide us to success or give us insight. They were all condescending and heartless. Not sure how any of them were or still are currently nurses with those attitudes and way of thinking. I would avoid this campus at all cost!! Theyre biased with their grading and favortize students. They just care about the money we pay them, its more of a business than faculty that cares about seeing their students succeed. Pathetic! This is coming from a student who is passing!
I am thankful for the learning experience that I had at Keiser University. Dr. Laura Thompson was a wonderful instructor who took the time to teach our class the best practices with ProQuest. I also appreciate the regular check-ins from my instructors. Thank you for your efforts to support us!
TERRIBLE! Terrible communication! As a first time college student I thought maybe moving away from home and going to Keiser would be a great idea. But once the time came to move I realized that I was biting off way more than I could chew. So I had to withdraw from classes and pick a college closer to home. The bursars office stated on a phone call that the new loan that had just been sent out just a couple days before I withdrew from the University that they would take out a little over $2,000 for a withdrawl from a university fee and the rest of the $9,000 loan would be sent back ass a refund but now they are saying that that is against policy and I will still have to pay back the loan even though I am not attending the school for that term. Extremely upset and aggravated. MONEY HUNGRY SCHOOL STAY AWAY
I'm a current student, I do not recommend the school!!! Because of lack of communication with student, ...professor do not use the same template for SOAP notes and each one wants a different format, each semester with a different teacher is like start from zero, is crazy... Go to another school!!!, is like they want suspend all student. Of course each student represent money!!! Is the only thing important for that school, MONEY.
WARNING: DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL I am writing this review because this is the last straw. I graduated in 2012 still can't get any job that can remotely pay back my student loans. This degree has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for me and I owe so much money. Now I applied for a home loan and i cannot get it because of student loans so not only is it NOT getting me any opportunities but it's hindering other opportunities in my life. I just want to earn someone because this situation sucks and i don't want someone else to go through this.
What a horrible and disgusting way to run a buisness. This is only care about money You can get your degree at another school for so much less. I had an associates degree from another college, came here, they took the credits and STILL I ended up with almost 20k in debt. I feel so stupid now because when I signed up I thought I was making an attempt to better my life.They also hold the right to raise tuition at any moment WITHOUT notice. I was down on my luck and made a stupid decision to come here.
I would definitely say stay away from the Port Saint Lucie Keiser campus!! I was the Frist in my family to go to college. My major was RT, it was a two year course. The financial aid department was hasty to have me enroll into the class, my husband and I ask several questions and the answers were very vague. My GE classes were online which I had no problem with, except my Father had a stroke in the beginning of my Math course and I had to drop the course and ended up paying $2000 more because of that, which was the first thing that was not just, the school would not accepted my Father's doctors note I started my core classes and everything was going great, up to my 4th to last class, my doctor had put me on some medication that was not agreeing with my system, and the clinical director took notice and called me into his office. He stated the way I was acting was not normal and that I should take medical leave, which I was going to do, until the Dean said it would be better if I stayed so I could repeat the classes again (free of charge). I listened to his advice, because I trusted him, and repeated the classes again, however, I was still on the medication and I missed the grade by 1 point to pass the class, but I did have a B+ average. The director took me to the Dean's office once again, the Dean could of pass me, but in reality, I needed to be put on medical leave until I sorted the medication out with my doctor. The worst part is later I found out that those classes I repeated, I should have taken when I came back from medical leave. In essence the Dean of the school lied because he did not want to fill out the medical leave papers in the first place. KU failed me out of the school because of one point, now I am left with a $47,000, , bill, no Radiology Degree and, no descent job to pay for it. Basically, Keiser University screwed me over the coals. Therefore, I would not recommend the school to know one!
This is by far the worst university I have ever had to deal with. They preach they are "students first" but will keep your leftover private loan money so that they do not have to give you your scholarships. They do not care if they are overcrowded, they continue to accept students knowing they do not have the space to accomodate the students.
I don't know all the stuff that everyone here went through but i can say that people are more likely to write the bad and forget the good. I went to keiser twice. Once 8 years ago which i did like a year and stopped and than i came back and finished my bachelors. I had a great experience! AS LONG AS YOU do your work, pay on time and repeat those 2 steps you will graduate with no problems. If you're going to complain, and make excuses like " i work 3 jobs, or i work too much etc" you're going to fail because no one cares about your excuses we all have problems. Deal with it.. Its easy, work hard and be on time and you will graduate. PERIOD. Also, i did the ONLINE PROGRAM so i can't speak for those who went on Campus.
Avoid at all costs. Have 100k in student loans and no prospects for a better job or life. The jobs placement is put your resume up on a jobs search site and pray. The dress code they have for non-existent job recruiters that may show up is window dressing but the final straw was I applied for a job at keiser and was turned down form letter. Nothing says quality education than the university not considering its alumni for a position. Stay far far away from this place.
