Maryville University Reviews
So far the program has been fine! Based on the reviews people don't understand what online programs entail. Online programs are primarily all self taught and require a lot of self dedication. It is also common knowledge that schools do not help you find clinical sites. The program is what you make of it. If you want a lecture type education this not for you! If you are self motivated and are dedicated to your reading and course work this will be a decent program for you!
Wish I would have seen these reviews prior to starting classes at Maryville. All of the previous reviews are TRUE! This is a self-taught program. No one teaches you to be a clinician, let alone a good clinician. You will complete all of the tedious irrelevant assignments - this is the extent of your education. If you are fortunate to graduate, you are on your own to practice what you did not learn at Maryville. There is no feedback on assignments, quizzes or exams. You will not know what you need to improve on. If you fail, you retake the course...but what do you focus your attention on? You will never know. Instructors are using these programs as "side money" and exhibit little to no interest in your learning. Absolutely NO support, but you will definitely pay for the over priced tuition. There are legislative discussions regarding schools such as this that takes students' money and does not honor it's educational commitment. Many schools do not accept multiple credits from previous universities, so students feel trapped when considering transferring to other institutions. Perhaps there is sufficient documentation from students who attend educational institutions whose practices are substandard or dishonest to initiate legal proceedings? Heed all of the reviews on this site and do not attend this school.
Awful, total rip off stole all of fasfa money and still charges never ever would recommend. Constantly worry about fast money instead of worrying about my education they did help at some point but one later on in the road they kind of just stopped working with you and it was pretty awful.
The online instructors dont actually teach anything. They all use the same poor lectures that were recorded years ago yet yoU are paying top dollars for this program. If you want to be prepared for an Acute care Np this is not the program for you. The instructors and lead instruction Nina Zimmermann have no acute care background and all the classes are focused on the FNP word. Terrible program and I wish I would have went someplace else or transferred. Also tou have to find all your own clinical instructors and the school advisors are useless at helping. Last semester they forgot to send my paper work to my clinical site.
Dr S. wants students to fail. The university just wants money. Similar to Trump University. Go somewhere else. The advisers will call you daily push you into the program under false pretenses then when you arent ready or dont have the money for all the money requirements the stop responding to emails cause they dont care if you succeed they just want your money.
I have had a bad experience with this school. The instructor's really don't seem to care about the students. The one I have at the present time has been the worst so far. She picks apart every thing that I do when I am almost finished with the program and what she is picking apart is so insignificant. The Skype interviews with the instructor put so much undue stress on the student and accomplish nothing. All they are is an intimidation tool that the instructors use. I am learning so much more from the clinical portion then anything that the school is teaching me. They need to shorten the program and just add more clinical hours since this is where we are learning.
This program is a joke. It is essentially self study. Instructors do not answer in a timely manner. They dont help you find clinical sites. Their background check is ridiculous and super complicated...no help received from staff. Information is not taught. Online format typical discussion boards and group projects. Some of the classes are just busywork with no real value...
This is the most awful experience I have ever had. Teachers are inconsistent. No teaching, just reading and occasional videos or powerpoints. Unclear instructions. Can never get clarification and grades suffer due to the issue. No one returns your phone calls. No one addresses complaints. Administration and instructors are not responsive. Administration is not held accountable. Almost all students are complaining and unhappy. They were just shut down from doing clinicals in Oregon with active Oregon students. Don't waste your money here, you will just end up transferring to another program by the second semester. Heed the other reviews and run away.
I enrolled because it looked like a good school. I was wrong ! The instructor doesn't teach us anything. Instead of lectures, he posts some youtube video that isn't even his. These instructors are just skating through the course, so they can collect a paycheck. I am going to transfer schools asap. I thought I would have an issue with the material, but the material is easy compared to the "little things" that mean nothing at all.
The online courses are a joke! The staff have changed multiple times. When you have technical issues and attempt to upload assignments, they refuse to grade accordingly. The "instructors" do not teach...they expect you to teach yourself with ridiculous amounts of reading that you have no time for...I would give this school zero stars if I could...run away fast!!!
