"I think all these people complaining about the degree, the school, the financial aid, the professors are likely inexperienced and not used to an adult school. This isn't a school for those that aren't prepared, too busy to take it serious or otherwise. You will get out of it whatever you put into it and it's not the school "name" that gets you the job. It's you, your ability to write an effective resume, interviews well, communicates in an effective way to sell yourself. I have had some gripes about National but those were addressed by leadership and I can appreciate that. It's not a perfect school but can anyone tell me what school or anything else is? I wish you all the best, take care..."

"This review is for the internship program that is required to graduate. My overall program experience was great, the MPH program is accredited and I can honestly say I learned a lot and enjoyed my classes. However the internship experience was so incredibly stressful it made me want to quit the program. They dont have any internships in place for students. So youre on your own in terms of finding an internship. The school had no affliliation agreements where I lived at the time, I searched in my area but couldnt find anything. I then secured an internship out of state, doing some remote work with a scheduled time period for me to travel to the organization for some hands on experience. I went through the approval process, got all the paperwork signed, spoke with my internship advisor, was told it was approved. Then a week before my internship was supposed to start the internship office came back to me stating that some of the requirements I did disappeared and I had to do them again. They then told me that my internship didnt fit accreditation criteria-this was after I was already told it was approved!!!! The internship process was incredibly unorganized, inconsistent, stressful, and the faculty was impossible to get ahold of. When they finally did respond to my emails, it was weeks later. My internship ended up being delayed months due to their incompetence. An internship should not be that stressful and difficult, it was only that way because them! I worked as a manger in healthcare before this program, so I wasnt going in with no idea as to how things work. In my old job I dealt with student workers and interns!"

"The school is wonderful. Great instructor and program director who ensure students are successful. However the financial aid is not the best. I submitted my financial aid back in June and now it November, and I still haven't received it to pay off my tuition and purchase my books. I different excuses every time I check on the status. I am hopeful that they will figure things out for the betterment of the students. Overall I really enjoying my education journey here."

"I absolutely recommend this school (at least my program). Like any school, pros and cons. Some teachers are better than others, etc. Overall, I learned a lot and had some really fantastic teachers. The head of my department is actively involved and reachable, just as most of the teachers are. Classes realize that the students are working full-time and the coursework is typically very applicable to real life. Through this online program, and the study abroad (that actually was affordable for once) I actually have become closer and know more real people than when I did my undergrad at a state school. I'm glad I found this school and can't believe I finally have my Masters!"
