Worse experience ever. Very disorganized. The school does not help students succeed. It is a money pit that is their biggest interest. Do yourselves a favor save your money. Look at all your options im sure there are better options than ONU. Do not go here for FNP MSN
Worst school ever. People are complete hypocrites and bot true Christians like they proclaim. They lied about having a Paramedic aspect to their ABSN program. The program was solely to work around 24 hour shifts and once I started the course they acted as if it never existed. EMS & Fire students go find other programs. They hate us!
Probably the biggest SCAM of a school of all time. Please I repeat please RUN. Go to ResU or Chamberlain or one of the many other accelerated programs in the Chicagoland area. There is a reason why their logo is a cross in a burning flame, this place was complete hell for me. They claim to be a caring Christian University, but let me tell you, there is NOTHING holy about these people. This place is all about the tuition check and not remotely about preparing you to be the nurse you want and need to be in order to succeed. Mostly online, with no guidance at all and no tools to help you get through. They give you CBLOs (study guides) which are a complete joke and don't help you. Professors do not even give you PowerPoints in place of an in-person lecture. You read the book, and take the exam. Nursing is a hard field to begin with, and this program lacks the support students need to succeed. I caution you. Its one thing for a program to be rigorous.. but its another not to even help your students in success. They set students up to fail in order to make more money. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.
The Accelerated nursing bachelors program and FNP out of Oakbrook is poorly organized. Seemingly, some of the teachers hold prejudice against students of colors. I have openly heard a few rolling their eyes and openly gossiping about colored students here. They do not like colored students here. Avoid this terrible school at all cost.
I came from a failing school district high school in Illinois, received 85% of my tuition in scholarship for academics, and my first lab ever was in gen chem 103! The biology department is incredible, the least efficient class was organic chemistry, because the professor is an archaic genius. That being said, by the time I graduated I was able to analyze academic literature, perform lab techniques with confidence, and became friends with my professors. I recommend the bio department to anyone!
Disorganized at best! They promise the moon they deliver nothing! Please talk with current students prior to making your decision to attend any nursing program. Hopefully,the school is seeing the light and making some much needed changes to all levels of the Nursing programs.
Possibly the worst educational experience of my life, the program is disorganized and generally a complete mess. I attended school looking forward to learning how to be a professional nurse with expectations of gaining the tools to be successful; all while maintaining my christian values. I am leaving this school with none of the above. The program administration preach compassion and understanding but demonstrate NONE of these values. This school places the burden of all work on students while not providing enough resources or teaching to allow students to be successful. They will say anything to get you into the door and your money in their hand, then find reasons to fail or mark you as unsatisfactory in order to gain more money for students repeating classes. Going through this program the only thing that kept me going was the light at the end of the tunnel of leaving this place and never looking back. I will NEVER suggest this program to anyone, never recommend attending any classes at the Oak Brook site, and never think about taking any other advanced practice courses at this location again.
Do not go to the nursing program at Olivet! Teachers are very arrogant and they hate the students. They fail and kick out over 70% of the class. Everything is disorganized. FAculty will not answer emails. Many times they made us drive to class and our professor did not show. We would wait for hours with no information. If we leave when the professor does not show it is an unexcused absence and we have to make it up. Clinicals are disorganized and many times we arrived at hospitals to learn our paperwork was not completed by the university and we had to go home only to make it up during exam week. I had to write 20 - 30 pages of research topics a week and that left little time to study actual content. There is no accountability for treating the students fairly. Many of us filed grievances and went to higher level deans without assistance. They wait until they get your entire $55,000 and then kick many out the last semester. Run..... Find a more reputable program that is also reasonable.
Very disorganized. Instructors are mean and not helpful. I would not recommend this program at all. They whole online portion is a mess. The teachers do not know how to use canvas. The tests are poorly written and people get Screamed at by teachers. All the instructors care about is making money. No instructor actually cares. Terrible terrible program.
Olivet Nazarene University school treats students as an ATM machine. They use workplace discounts (10-20%) to lure students in. After admission, there is no one to help. Professors are there to make quick money. They are not willing to help with anyone or willing to direct you in the correct direction. Ask too many questions, you will get message written in CAPS telling you that they are mad at you. Many Professors do not reply to your questions nor answer phone calls. For all future RNS, do not come to this school. You will be paying to have all your money ripped off. You will wind paying way more for your degree than the discount they provide to attract you during admission. Go to another online school where you will be treated as a student and not as an ATM machine.
