Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2019
"I am quite surprised about the negative reviews that I have read.....it made me feel the need to write my own. I started with Kaplan University in 2017 and have not had a single issue with the program. I have had the same adviser since the beginning of my program. Yes, with any higher learning institution, there are professors that are tougher than others but there are also resources available that can help reduce some of the stress. I did have a 2-3 changes with my practicum adviser, but the change didn't affect my progress. It has been a wonderful experience thus far even with the transition to Purdue Global. Students need to understand that online learning is all in what you make it and as adults, no one is here to hold your hand. I started my online MSN journey with Chamberlain in 2015, worked as a transplant coordinator on 36-40 hour shifts 3-4 days a week, raised two children, and switched to a new nursing field (ER) all while getting my RN-BSN which I finished with a 3.81 GPA in 2016. I started Kaplan/Purdue in 2017 all while working as a charge nurse in a busy ER, taking two classes at a time, moved, and got divorced while I finish this degree on January 22, 2019 with a current GPA of 3.75. Unforeseen circumstances befall us all but it's how you recover is what determines your success."
