"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."

"I'm a 3rd generation Boilermaker and I was looking to advance my career options in healthcare IT. I had worked in the industry for ~5 years and wanted a flexible opportunity to work while pursuing education. Purdue Global offered me a doable schedule that I've now completed after 1.5 years to get a master's degree."

"ARE YOU THINKING OF DOING AN ADN TO BSN PROGRAM AT PURDUE GLOBAL* ACCELERATED TRACK, DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT THIS PROGRAM, and this is my experience and I'll explain. This is coming from a Purdue Global (adn to bsn alumni that went through the program). Do not do this program. I am a full-time travel nurse, who needed a BSN to work in Magnet Hospitals. This program is a joke and held me back in my life with getting my BSN. There are other programs that are A LOT FASTER and do not need the requirements Purdue Global wants. So Purdue Global brings you in saying how fast you can finish the program of an ADN to a BSN as little as 8-16 months. Well, that is actually a big lie and let me tell you why. Like a lot of ADN to BSN programs, a lot of it is paperwork and that is understandable. my experience is that when I had finished the literature portion of the program (papers, etc...) THEY BRING YOU IN TO DO AN IN-PERSON CLINICAL PRACTICUM PORTION! and the requirements before you start your clinical portion is just like nursing school! Where you need to submit all your vaccines, get a test for TB, and HAVE HEALTH SCREENING PAYING AND SUBMITTING TESTS, drug screens, and appointments! The instructors at Purdue are NOT INVOLVED and could not care less. And let me tell you the WORSE PART, YOU NEED TO FIND YOUR OWN PRECEPTOR FOR THIS CLINICAL PORTION!!! THEY DONT HELP OR ASSIGN YOU with a preceptor or location! So basically after you have done your literature portion of your program, YOU HAVE TO DO CLINICAL WORK!!! a lot of programs do not have a clinical portion, trust me. So if I were you, Please do another ADN TO BSN programs such as UIC, SIUE, that solely does literature and no clinical. Purdue Global is a complete joke."

"I have enjoyed my time at Purdue University Global, the online education I thought was going to be difficult after 10 years since last attendance. I have been pleasantly surprised that they helped me every step of the way, encouraged me, and helped me succeed. I am appreciative of those that took time to explain to me what I didn't understand, even multiple times. I have nothing but wonderful praises for the school I attended. Thank you to all the teachers, faculty, and staff for making this an obtainable goal."

"Purdue Global is a good program for professionals that have children, jobs that involve travel and are juggling multiple responsibilities. I enjoyed the excel track program that made completing course work flexible and also allowed for an acceleration of the program in areas I already had experience. I enjoyed the course work and would recommend the program to people who want / need an MBA to advance their career."

"Since attending from the beginning the enrollment process to graduation, everything has been spot on with how easy it is to enroll your classes to every professor that I have learned from, and the accountably that they put on you as a student on ensuring that what you do and what you turn in is up to the school standards."

"The college is great and so are the professors. There's a lot of assignments and it can be quite overwhelming. If you work hard, you'll get the grade you deserve. Its a school that definitely stands out from others as the curriculum is good and the professors are very knowledgeable."

"Im conflictes about recommending Purdue. My classes were great, the instructors were great for the most part, but the support services (ie student services and different advisors) have really made my experience poor. Ive spoken to multiple customer service members to try to get questions answered and during many of the interactions, i was disappointed. It started last year when waiting on the Dean for weeks to approve a class overload that never happened. I eventually signed up for the classes anyway and thankfully I did because I never heard back. Next I have received conflicting information about classes I could take based on prerequisites where ultimately I had to complain about taking my last 2 classes together because I was told I couldn't at the last minute. More importantly for graduation, there is nobody to call in and talk to when you have questions. My advisor really couldn't answer if I was able to graduate this session, since i was currently enrolled so i finally was able to email and get an answe. I am getting to walk at the graduation but still dont know if the correct honors will be attributed to me. I have a 3.91 gpa now and at yhe end of this session I should have a 4.0 but dont know how that will work since last day of class is Aug 11 and I walk Aug 13. When I do speak with someone, ive experienced less than favorable customer service, where I leave away feeling like the operator was only interested in getting me off the phone. I am an HR manager and my employer pays for our tuition so its disappointing to say I cant say Purdue University Global will be my first recommendation of schools if Im asked which University Id recommend. I wish I could provide other feedback but want to report so maybe someone else wont experience the same."

"Not an online program I would recommend. My experience has been underwhelming and disappointing to say the least. After the initial enrollment I have heard nothing from my student advisor. The voicemail box has been full since my first term and my student advisor has not responded to any of my emails. I had issues accessing books, which I had to buy myself, and I wasn't even allowed to discuss or know what my next classes would be for the next term until two days before. The site also gets shut down often for maintenance and that can make it really difficult to get assignments done or access content within each class module. The classes aren't bad but for someone spending money to go to school I look for more out of my classes. For example, if I'm paying X amount of dollars per unit I should have a say in what classes those would be. Also, not having access to my student advisor when I need them is really frustrating and I ask myself..."why am I sending this school my money?". When you call to ask for alternatives or people you can talk in regards to an issue when you advisor isn't available the staff are usually rude and condescending with their responses, sometimes not even allowing you to finish what you're going to say. That's terrible and shouldn't be allowed to happen. I know I won't be finishing my degree with Purdue Global Online. Overall I get the impression that they really don't have it together and based on some of these other reviews I also suspect varying levels of nepotism operating behind the scenes."

"I am a retuning student, but under Kaplan Universtiy I received my AAS in Criminal Justice in 2013. Since returning back to school, Purdue University Global went above and beyond my expectations with any online college. They also have military career advisors that help support and get you enrolled into school. The mach class as a refresher for returning and new students was nice. This feature is wonderful because it lets you explore and a quick essay, allows you to grasp what the semesters are about and how they will proceed. The best part was Purdue University Global used my previous core cirriculums to help me fill-in areas of opportunity to help me achieve my degree in a faster period. The school is wonderful and I would come back to finish my Master's degree anytime. The one drawback that I would say might deter me from returning to PUG is the lack of programs offered."

The student advisors could use some work but overall if you need help they will find someone who can assist you. Financial aid and student advisors both have chats you can contact if needed asap."

"I would not recommend this program to anyone looking to get their master's purely because the trouble the clinical component has caused me. I was informed, prior to enrolling, that I would have help with my clinical placement. My boyfriend and I moved from PA to VA during my time in classes, and I had no connections to nurse educators in the VA area that were willing to precept me. For months, I emailed my clinical advisor for assistance, and she always sent the same useless suggestions that I had already tried multiple times. I had to quit my job and work at a different hospital system just to find a nurse educator that I could work with because PG was unwilling to help. The same advisor didn't inform me (despite me asking twice) that I can only have one preceptor for both clinical courses, not two. So I spent months looking for not one, but two, preceptors - I'm sure you can imagine how stressful this was. This advisor takes days to respond to time sensitive emails, unless her boss is CC'd on the email - then you'll get a response back in 30 seconds. The pre-clinical paperwork and requirements are not clearly put together. The advisor I have didn't even know what program I was in and how far along I was in the program. It felt very unorganized and chaotic. I don't think the staff realizes that students who work full time (which is most of the students in this program because they advertise it to working people) need concise and precise information on what is required and how quickly it needs to completed. DO NOT attend this program if you don't already have someone who is willing to precept you for clinical. Also - you can't have a nurse educator teaching college level courses in an undergraduate nursing program precept you. I tried. Apparently they are not going to provide a PG student a good clinical... even though the student in question (me) would like to teach nursing students in an academic setting.... I'm not sure how that adds up in a Master's in Nursing Education program. Nobody at PG was able to clarify why this was the case. In terms of classes, students in this program will get out as much out of them as they want. If you're looking to advance your knowledge, then the reading material is helpful. However, the reading material for the courses seldom lines up with the competency assignment for a module, so be prepared to do additional research for competency assessments. That being said - it is possible to skip the reading and just work on the competency assessment if you want to complete assignments quickly."
