Keiser University Reviews - Bachelor's in Nursing
Review of Nursing Bachelors Degrees
This school is interested in MONEY as I have seen them bounce good students without any consideration in trying to get them taught the material. They seem to take glee in dropping students so long as they have a new nursing student ready to pay. Read carefully as you can not retake a class like you can in the public college system in Florida. They are taking advantage of the limited supply of nursing slots in the public university system. Even though I graduated they state to students don't worry you can get into another nursing school easily which is a lie. The credits don't all transfer and again its about the MONEY. Not for profit my backside.
This school does not care about its students only wants money. BEWARE OF THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!! The teachers are horrible, the school does not round grades. I received an 89.9 and was told by the DEAN that it wasn't good enough to round to an A. They are only looking to gain more money in their pockets. WORTHLESS SCHOOL!
Keiser seemed to be a very good school at the beginning. However, I came across struggling with a class in which I thought retaking on campus I would do better. I personally went in to discuss with a Dean about my issue and I was surprised at his response. To make it short, he basically said you should just settle for a C and does not understand why I would rather get a higher grade, if possible. I also got stuck with paying a whole semester because of someones mistake of not enrolling me in my next online class and everyone at Keiser is basically, pay or you can not continue. Another Dean was suppose to investigate. Time passed and no one called me back. I called to follow-up and found I was withdrawn because of excessive absences when I wasn't even in role in a course. They tricked me good. Their advertisement is false. I had previous issues with not being scheduled for classes I had should have been and had to take it to the principal, who retired months later. If it wasn't one thing it was another.
Pros: Very easy classes. Guaranteed A and degree if you go everyday and do what your told. Great school for vets, as tuition is pricey and the VA pays for it. Really NO homework. Tests are simple. Most teachers go over the test answers before you take it. Classes require a paper and a speech which you can just throw together. The worst grade I've seen was a B. Cons: They are a business, so expect to pay. Please keep in mind you are buying a degree. If your like me, then not having the hassle to study like the public universities is a huge plus! Once again, you will get a degree and it is very easy, but the downside is they do base themselves off of reputation, so you will find it a challenge to get credits transferred. Lastly, don't expect to be qualified to go into the field you received a degree in. The good news is you will have Keisers reputation, and they do spend time teaching you how to BS your way into the work place.
I am in my fourth of a five semester RN-BSN program with the hopes of going to nurse anesthesia school. The courses are one at a time but make no mistake, they can be challenging with all the discussion boards, assignments and research papers that are required. Not to mention you're packing an entire 16 week course into 4. Nevertheless, I would have to say that I'm pleased with the program. Most of the professors are friendly and reasonable and the (nursing) program is both nationally and regionally accredited by the CCNE and SACS. This helps when it comes time to applying to advanced practice programs offered by other major colleges and universities.
All the negative reviews are right if there is anyone telling you they are great is because they probably only did prerequisites or they just plain work for the school. Nursing program is a joke unprepared instructors load of work makes no sense and classes are practically impossible yo pass
