Keiser University Reviews - Associate in Nursing
Just wanted to say that this was an awesome program that did exactly what they said they would do. I got my ADN and passed my NCLEX the first time. I am about to start my dream job and I owe it all to Keiser and the awesome professors who went above and beyond to make sure I had what I needed to succeed.
I graduated from the Port Saint Lucie campus in nursing and I am making great money! I was about to drop out after I failed a class, but J. and J. in financial aid worked together to keep me in...they took time to help me get back up and found a way to help me afford to re take the class. You simply don't get that type of help at a community college. They really cared about me and I could tell it wasn't just for the money. Yes Keiser is expensive but worth every penny because of workers like them. Thank you guys. I'll never forget how you cared about me...just a single mom trying to make a better life for me and my daughter.
The program is extremely fast paced, you barely have time to learn anything. You "pump and dump" the information between tests to keep up. And guess what? If you fail, there aren't any seats open in the program for 2 years and you have to transfer. Don't waste your time, go to a real school.
School is very unorganized, teachers are very unprofessional in the nursing program. Teacher stated she was going to make test harder because we all did so good on last test. Which is unfair. Also the teachers talking about the students unprofessionaly and in front of other students. Made comments that they didnt care if you have a family on a ventilator that you cannot miss class or being on your phone.
School is great :) H,M,M....are the best. I go to the one located in NPR, FL I really enjoy my time here. They try really hard to work with you. I think that people who actually take their time to work with you and care say a lot. They care about us
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL/NURSING PROGRAM, please! The instructor turnover rate should be a good indication as to how awful this program is run, and what a bully the Program Director is. ONE of my instructors actually taught, the others just read off of power points. The workload is so much that you aren't able to understand and retain information long term. ATI is God. You're given books, and told to read them, nothing else. Clinicals are ALWAYS getting canceled for one reason or another. This program does not allow students to learn and feel confident in their abilities. The lab is a JOKE. All of the mannequins are broke, no supplies, no organization. Choose another school, do your research! This school is WAY too expensive for the low quality education you will receive.
I took all my pre reqs at IRSC before starting the ADN program in Melbourne. I was out with my ADN in 14 months at a cost of about $28,000. It probably could have been less but I needed to cover my living expenses at the time. Financial aid folks were awesome. Helped me find scholarships as well. The instructors were great for the most part. I am not sure what people mean by "you buy your degree". You cannot buy your nursing degree at this campus. It doesn't work like that. Keiser nursing grads are sought after because the clinicals are tough and so is the program. I understand not everyone has a great experience to share but if you know what your goals are and ready to commit then this is a great program. (Melbourne, FL).
My experience with Keiser University has been a complete NIGHTMARE.!!!! I was enrolled in this school for 6 days....literally 6 days and had to dis-enroll due to a family emergency. I turned in all documents and they still put $5800 on my credit bringing my credit from a 672 to 549 still to this day they still won't remove all charges from the credit bureaus. They're telling me they have nothing to do with it. I have even spoken with corporate. No one is willing to help, return my emails or calls. They're very expensive and they are scammers. Wouldn't recommend this school if my life depended on it.
The university prepares you well for the real world and for national boards. The instructors are knowledgeable and approachable. The program is hard but if you put in the work you can do it. Would recommend the nursing program to anyone looking to go into this exiting career.
Do not go to Keiser Orlando for nursing unless you want to spend more money than any person should have to for the privilege of teaching yourself. The instructors spend too much time talking about personal experiences and not teaching the subject material. If they cannot answer your question they will tell you to look in the book and find out for yourself. When you find that they give information contrary to accepted practice they will tell you to just accept what they say, even if the information is contrary to ATI which they treat as the God of nursing. Grading is done by some instructors based on making themselves look better like taking tests then getting into groups to correct the test using books and internet then turning them in for grades while in class.
