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.
This school is a joke, the faculty are not qualified to teach. I am only posting this to deter young students to save your money and time. I have read a lot of the negative posts here and they are true, you will see for yourself if you attend this "University" pff, again a joke!!
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.
First of all, the lady that teaches Kinesiology is unqualified...She does not even have a Masters. She does not like questions, her power points are horrible, and her exams are filled with so many mistakes. She has favorites especially those that do not question her because quite honestly they do no know any better. She is abrasive and the open door policy with her is false. She speaks horribly about other students with other students and we hear back. Please have someone more qualified because she is not. People make sacrifices and this school is not cheap. Subsequently, this class does not have an accompanying lab. They have a lot of stupid papers which is such a waste of time. Now I know why no one takes Keiser seriously.
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.
Keiser University is definitely a school that I would recommend to others. Although it is a private school, which many seem to frown upon, it is actually pretty good. They only do one class at a time, and you always finish that class in one month. Then you never have to go back again. It's just nice to know that you can concentrate on one subject at a time and don't have to juggle between classes. They still count semesters just like everyone, and you still get at least 4 classes each semester, it just makes it more simple.
As a Keiser graduate, I can give a little insight to help someone make a decision. The tuition is OUTRAGEOUS so unless you are wanting to go in a limited access program like Nursing, OTA, PTA, etc; I would not recommend them. You can get the same quality of education for much cheaper elsewhere. However, I can say that after completing my AA degree, I transferred to a public state university and all of my courses transferred. I did have to pick up some additional courses: 2 Spanish, a biology lab, a health and wellness course, and 2 humanity courses. I am in Florida so I assume each state would vary. I probably would not attend here for my bachelors due to the negative view of Keiser within academia and the fact that employers do weigh the reputation of your degree granting institution at the bachelor level. Overall though, I did not have a bad experience. I was NOT constantly pulled from class, I didn't have any issues with my financial aid, I wasn't kicked out of any courses; it was a smooth ride for me.
I just graduated from Keiser University at the Port Saint Lucie campus. My experience at Keiser was great and while I do agree that they are expensive, I can tell you first and foremost, they really do care about your success. I hit a rough patch and was having trouble in my class and J. in financial aid actually took the time to talk with me, give me advise, motivated and actually put me with the dean where I was given tutoring by teachers that seemed to really care about me. I was able to pass my class which seemed impossible at first. I would have dropped out but I'm glad I didn't. I'm working at a hospital now and while I'm not making huge money yet, I have a job and making much more than I did before...I'm also just about to start the nursing program there and I am very excited and I feel I owe it all to this man who helped me when he didn't have to. I came in there to thank him one day and saw him helping another student in the same way he helped me. His help was sincere and they are all a great bunch of people.
