"Very bad school, they don't really care about students in need and if you have financial issues they don't want and don't try to help out. Been trying to get a hold to someone for nearly 4 months with no clear response. If you ever need help with a specific issue you will have to be direct otherwise I won't work."

"The program has gone from a total enrollment of ten students to SEVENTY. Beware. As with any business that experiences too-rapid growth, the quality of the instruction and the quality of the instructors has plummeted. Most in the program now will clearly tell you to run...not walk..., to a different choice, for your advanced practice studies. The professors are adjunct, with no teaching ability, no passion for their students, and no commitment to truly mentor and guide. In reality, there is no true teaching happening; your learning is dependent upon self-teaching in the textbooks and through your private purchase of FNP review courses. Clinical sites for students are scarce, and many in our program were left with substandard practice sites that were detrimental to their learning. There have also been numerous staffing and faculty "departures" that have been costly in continuity of information and program values."

"I was originally very excited to be able to attend NAU's Nursing Program. However, my experience turned out to be awful. This program is a joke. Many of the teachers have no education background and (while smart) lack the ability to truly teach. I have had to commute up to 4 hours in 1 day for "clinical." The school has no desire to actually work with their students and place them where they want. For clinical placements, I have been told by a professor to "suck it up" and she will put us wherever she feels like it. This is in spite of family obligations, marries, children. etc. Flagstaff is not large enough to accommodate their nursing students. Be prepared to travel and commute. For our public health rotation, there were many times where I felt unsafe going into someone's home BY MYSELF. There were also dangerous situations the school put us in during our mental health rotation. The staff is unorganized and many clinical rotations consist of our poor professors trying desperately just to find a place for us to go. I would not recommend this program to any future students."
