Keiser University Reviews - Associate in Nursing
PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!! i am a just graduated high school student that has chosen to attend keiser in hopes of achieving a masters degree and becoming a nurse practitioner. THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE!!!! the first problem was with financial aid. my mom started the process of getting everything paid for and ready a year before i was suppose to attend, fast forward, we are now a month before fall semester starts and they say they cant find any of my papers and that i wont be able to attend school unless they have my papers. so once they made my mom take time off of work to resend all of my papers that they lost they told us that it would be smart for my parents to take out a parent plus loan to cover the extra little amount that is not covered by my scholarships, and whatever money is left over from that i will be getting back, they told me that i should be expecting around $1000-2000 back during the month of october..... the month of october came and went and there was no money credited to my blackboard account. so i went in to talk to someone and they gave me every excuse they could possibly come up with every single week until the month of december when we were about to go on winter break. turns out. they pay your tuition with your loans first and then your scholarships and then whatever money you have left over from your scholarship ends up going to another student.......... please reread that and make sure you fully understand how poor their communication skills are...THIS IS A FOR PROFIT SCHOOL WHICH MEANS THEY WILL DO ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO S**** YOU IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY OUT OF EVERY LAST PENNY YOU HAVE!!!! the nursing director when i went to go talk to her didnt even know what her own program entailed and on top of no one communicating with each other you are treated like a child. the dress code is absolutely ridiculious as well as their reason behind having one. i should not be paying $2000 per class and still being told what i can and can not wear like a highschool student. that is absolutely absurd. and anyone who still decides to go here after reading this is absolutely insane. i would rather be in debt over student loans than in this unorganized facility. OH!!! almost forgot to mention.... they bad mouth every other college they possibly can to make you think youve made the right decision, sort of like a toxic relationship... tearing down everything around you so that you feel lucky that they accepted you when actually theyre ruining you.
STAY AWAY FROM KEISER UNIVERSITY!!! I attended Keiser University (West Palm Beach) campus back in 2015-2016 and that was the biggest mistake I ever made. The only two good things about this school were the professors and one class per month. I received a check from Keiser at the end of the school year, I still have the voicemail from one of the lady from the Bursar's office that called me to verified my address because the check had returned back to them due to bad address. I got the check and I thought it was left over money from mine student loans, so I used it to caught up on bills. A month later I found out that I have to pay back the money because the money was for my last class with them. Two years later, they are still holding on to my transcript until I pay them $1,700 which I already paid $400.00 towards. The manager at the Ft. Lauderdale campus is blaming me for cashing the check, saying that I sholud have returned the check back to them. I feel like they screwed up and need to own up to their mistakes and waive the amount and give me mine transcript. I DO NOT recommend Keiser University to anyone. Save yourself the headache and go to South University, for the same amount of money you can graduate with a bachelor degree at South University.
I went to the Orlando campus from 2011 through 2013. Mrs. G, was by far the worst instructor I ever had, but other than her inability to teach in a classroom setting and ridiculous exams, the school was great! Mrs. S, is the best! It is definitely expensive, but it's faster than taking 5 million unnecessary prerequisites and wasting 4 years (plus waiting lists) on a public university, so you can start working faster.
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).
