"My one complaint with this program came down to graduation. I am set to be done with my final term of classes May 9th. Spring commencement ceremony is May 6th. I was given absolutely no information for graduation from the school and my teachers. When I reached out to the graduation department, they told me there was nothing I could do to walk for the spring commencement since I "missed registration". For someone who has spent thousands of dollars on their degree and has spent 2 years of pure dedication to the program, to not be given a chance to walk at graduation is beyond me. I truly have nothing negative to say about the school, program, or teachers. I just wish there was more clarification when it comes to the actual graduation."

"I enjoyed my stay here at Purdue Global, and that’s why I’m going to be returning for my Doctorate degree, DNP. I transferred most of my credits from another university, and almost all my credit transferred, which was amazing!! Thank you PGU for that memorable experience! It meant a lot to me."

"Overall I have had a great experience at Purdue. I bad teacher out of many I would say was a win. I did not like having to find my own clinical site but many schools are doing that. Overall as a said great school and great experience. Everything listed I would mention to a friend."

"What I love about Purdue is that they care about their students: This is seen in the way they call to Check up on me. In addition, they provide students with advisers who help them in making decisions about school. Financial aid is available to students."

"I do not feel the classes have prepared me for my boards. I only had issues with one professor. The Pediatric Professor does not do well with responding to emails/questions. She graded an assignment before I turned it in. I did let her know but she did not respond to my emails and did not change the grade. The financial department did not notify me in a timely manner about the cost that I would be paying. The last 3 classes I ran out of financial aide and had to pay out of pocket. That is hard to collect it last minute."

"First of all, I feel overall that the program focuses too much on “busy work” and “hoops” to jump through and too little on substance. Not once did I feel I learned something from journal assignments or discussion boards. They are pointless wastes of time. Second, iHuman is an atrocity that should be done away with immediately. I know other schools also use it and I have spoken with students from other programs and the feels were unanimous. It does nothing to prepare you for real world Scenarios and is provides nothing but anger and frustration. Third, I had to find all of my own clinical sites. The school was avail no help at all on this front. Once you find one, and do all the paperwork for them, they did move heaven and eart to approve the sites as fast as possible and my clinical coordinator was very responsive. Last, but not at all least, someone in their infinite wisdom thought it would be a good idea to stop telling students which test questions they got wrong. This effectively eliminated our ability to know where we’re were weak and what needed to be relearned or fixed. I don’t care if you don’t show us the right answer. Show me the question I missed, and the answer I gave, so I can go back and work on my knowledge deficit. I discussed this with students from other schools and preceptors and their reactions were anywhere from angry to confused to mortified that this was how a school was educating students. I couldn’t have agreed more."

"I would highly recommend Purdue Global to anyone wanting to pursue their FNP. Not only have I learned a lot, but the program went by so quickly! Because of the opportunity to enroll in their Fast Track, I was able to obtain my degree in 18 months! I feel confident in my ability to successfully practice as an FNP. Thanks Purdue Global!"

"So overall this school helped me gain the knowledge I needed to know. They took criticism from the students throughout the course and revamped the program. Their is a weekly seminar and test are now taken with a lock down browser to prevent cheating or looking up answers. The weekly seminars help go over the content you are learning for the week. Most of the instructors are very responsive to e-mails or phone calls. The instructors were more than willing to answer any questions you need and to talk you through a problem you were having."

"This school's financial aid office is a joke. After I graduated, they would not fill out a loan deferment for me for my undergraduate loans and basically told me I was on my own. I would call to inquire and was put on hold MULTIPLE times and they could never help me. They also disbursed DOUBLE the amount of loans for me in my last term as a student there and made me fill out multiple forms to get refunded, and were never able to refund me. Be prepared to be disappointed with their financial aid office."
