"The Illinois campus gets all the benefit of our $150k tuition. The Florida campus has almost no clubs, no dorms, no gym, no buildings of our own. One facility is shared with a community college all in 3 classrooms with peeling wallpaper and roaches. We literally stomped roaches during lectures. The other building uses only the first floor because the other 3 floors were closed due to ASBESTOS. One of my professors has a bucket next to her desk when it rains. Curriculum is heavily sports and rehab focused so if you want to learn to care for moms/babies, personal injury, or anything else you have to buy further education elsewhere on your own. Only go to NUHS if you attend the Chicago campus, otherwise you may have your white coat ceremony in a dusty lobby of a run down building. Stay away."

"National University of Health Sciences has always looked at it's students as being the fore runners in alternative medicine. By incorporating classroom lecture, hands on lab study and innovative clinic practices, the students leave the program as doctors understanding the importance of wellness and the prevention of diseases to ensure a well balanced life style. With an indepth knowledge of the human body, National graduates are able to think outside the box when treating their patients health needs and help them come to an informed decision on treatment options that in most cases prevents surgery or dangerous drugs. Many of the doctors will successfully return to their home states and practice as primary care physicians specalizing in natural medicine and nutrition. With many doctors choosing to specialize, our country will lose over 133,000 primary care physicians over the next ten years. National helps set the stage for new doctors to help close this gap."

"This school is only after your money. Stay away. They mislead students into thinking lucrative careers in chiropractic await them upon graduation - the average chiro associate comes out of school making 30-40k with 150k in loans. This is one of the worst investments you could make. Even if students open their own practices upon graduation, the average take home salary is around 60k. There are many other degrees in the medical field with a lot cheaper price tag that will give a student a much better starting salary, and many more options for their future. If you have a chiropractic degree - that is pretty much all you can do with it as most other professions will not consider your chiropractic training as a valuable school. If you are reading this, do not make the same mistake that I did. IF only someone had warned me like this prior to starting this school, things would be much different for me professionally. Good luck in any other discipline."

"I think overall National is not the best choice for a chiropractic education. Also, they are now at risk for losing their accreditation and were put on notice by the Higher Learning Commission. I would advise people to lookup their notice on the HLC website before deciding to come here. I would not want to go into 200k of debt if it's not as legit as it seems. I am really upset with its administration as well seeing that they lied to all the students to try to make it sound like it was no big deal, but it definitely is a big deal!"

"I love learning about naturopathic medicine. The professors are very knowledgeable and inspire my ability to succeed in this re emerging field. We are trained as primary care physicians although the curriculum is very rigorous. I'm also studying for my Master in Oriental medicine and I'm also very happy with the curriculum and professors. The school is located near the city of Chicago which offers so many exciting things to do if I had free time. Financial aid is not sufficient for the cost of living in the area. My tuition is covered but I struggle with paying for my off campus rent, books, school supplies and food."

"This graduate program had several pros - the first that where the most important and highest on the list in my opinion was the fact that NUHS trains each student to be a primary care physician. What this means is that we are not just chiropractors we are looked at and trained as Doctors of the state of Illinois. Another huge pro of this program was the program offered a bi-degree as well as single degrees, meaning you could get a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a ND as well - Natropathic Doctor, the reason this is a pro is because we got to experience not only medical and chiropractic classes, but also Botantical classes - from the ND side. Another Pro was in a a class which we had 7th trimester I believe (there are 10 Trimesters in the program if you go full time) we had the benefit of working side by side with an ND who was at the same education level as us and what the huge benefit with this was the class was a doctor/patient relationship class and we had to get random live sim patients with made up problems and do our best to diagnose them. Long story short we had DC side and ND side. The biggest CON national faces is that it has so much freaking potential they just need to get a few things situated, BUT the president who just recently took over is basically changing everything around and I am just happy that the future NUHS students will get the benefits that I didn't."

"I love the location, being able to live on campus, the facilities (except for the gym) and being able to use the clinic for all of my medical needs for free. Not all of the professors are great and sometimes people do not respond to my e-mails, otherwise I am very happy where I am and the courses that I am taking."

"I believe my graduate program at this school is very good because each student has the opportunity to choose if they want to be full time or part time and finished the program in between 3-5 years depends on the course load that each student prefers. Also, all professors are very qualified and have many years of experience not only at this school but in general. Another very important thing is that for each class the university has a tutor that students can go for free and this give the opportunity to all students to have better grades in all classes."

"The school has a well rounded education but in my opinion there has been an increase in the amount of cross vocational teaching, increasing the amount of Naturopathic material in the Chiropractic curriculum. Aside from that aspect the level of training is the best. Covering all aspects of medicine, including allopathic, National trains their DC's to be able to cover all the necessary skills that will be required when the shortage of general care physicians comes as well as be very skilled Chiropractors."

"I feel that our school prepares us very well academically, but fails to take into account more realistic things. Also, I feel that our school can be quite close-minded and has at times lost some of the real gems of the chiropractic world, but one does get out what they put into something. As with anything the tools can be provided but it is each individual that must pick them up and use them correctly to build something!"

"Chiropractic College is not easy anywhere but the Education that you get at NUHS is top notch. We are taught everything that your basic MD gets and more. The professors are amazing and known for there specialties around the world. It is a tough program but if you can do it I believe it is the best education out there by far!"

"Needs updating in campus technology, such as the library computer systems. Nice environment, but lacks a cafeteria, only a book store with some food options available. Mostly chiro focused when it comes to the school, but does have natural medicine and oriental programs as well as undergrad medical science degree."
