Review of Nursing Bachelors Degrees
This school is the WORST. Their teachers and advisors are so ill advised and ruin students chances of getting into schools. Do NOT waste your money on this useless school. It should be out of business! If I could I would rate this school at a zero or below. I wish no students would have to go through this horrible school like I did.
horrible horrible financial aid, I pretty much had to walk them through my account when asking them questions, they are a complete rip off, taking a science class in 2 months and getting an A with a professor who is jamming info in your head and making it so you will not get an A in the class, in my opinion is the worst style of teaching. Often the teacher would make statements that would set us up for failure. I have also taken another science class here and the teacher didn't even speak English and you were not allowed to ask questions in class, your really going to make us sit through 4 hour long lectures and not let us ask a single question? how are we suppose to maintain a good GPA with horrible professors that don't care if you pass or fail the class. My advisor was helpful but the student concierge are very rude and not helpful at al!!! STAY AWAY!! Attend a community college instead or if your going to pay so much for school look into west coast or something else. This school is a scam that doesn't care if you succeed or not!
This school is extremely unorganized. The instructors are not credited to teach and are not very good. Admin doesn't respond to emails or phone calls. Scheduling is terrible you will be lucky to know your schedule 2-3 days before start date. No mercy or concerns for your life outside of nursing school, because they tell you in orientation that you won't have one, and if you do you're at their mercy. Terrible communication among all staffing too many indians and not enough chiefs... Save yourself the trouble and GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!
Had a great teacher, but the school is run very poorly! I've had nothing but problems with them. 3 years later and I'm still trying to undo the financial screw up they did! They are awful and don't care about trying to help their students.
I started an NU with the intention of receiving my BSN. I chose the school due to the flexibility of online or on-campus courses. The fact that each was 4-6 weeks long was perfect for my personality/attention span. I was looking forward to receiving my degree... until I started running into problems. Financial Aid is a nightmare. IF you can get ahold of someone, good luck getting the information you need. I was able to deal with the inefficiency until recently. I went in to ask if I could post pone my last two classes. I asked if it would affect my financial aid. I was told it would not, in fact my grant would be in effect so it would be best to wait. Next thing i know, I get a $3,000 bill because it seems i fell out of eligibility. nobody is accountable, it's just too bad for me. the best part? I'm not accepted into the nursing program until I pay off the $3,000. All because an adviser gave me the wrong information. Cudos NU.
Absolutely horrid school. They exist to make money, not to provide you with a quality education. They did illegal things like: changed the graduation requirements $25,000 into the program, against the course catalogue. They lied and lost many important contracts vital to my education in the field.Be prepared to possibly fail a class even if you have over an A plus. If you don't pass the ATI (which they don't teach towards), they will remove you from the program. Units do not transfer. DO NOT GO HERE.
This school is expensive, NOT military friendly the way they advertise it, do not waste your time effort or money. Get your pre-reqs from a community college and transfer to a real, traditional university. This school is only 1 step up from Pheonix U/Kaplan etc..
