"Unfortunately, this program was not well thought out. Most, if not all, the assignments and projects were based on recreating an example they displayed. They didn’t cover the basics whether or not the student needed it. All the learning blocks that come with a design program concerning graphic design were not provided like, typography and layout composition, logo and icons, photography and manipulation, design and color theory, as well as any portfolio building content. My experience was pretty much depressing because graphic design should be challenging as well as enjoyable which were neither in this experience."

"I would not give Rasmussen any stars, but this website requires you enter something. I totally agree with the previous review. This place is a joke. They truly do not review your errors and leave hanging to wonder what information you knew and what was incorrect. This is because they reuse the same exams over and over because the faculty does not want to create new exams. And speaking of faculty, it seems to me this school has a small handful of decent instructors, the rest could care less about the student and what they are teaching. My current instructor continually repeats that all her experience is in labor and delivery and she doesn't know the material she is teaching.(are you serious?) The school has decided now they will accuse everyone of cheating because so many students are graduating from their program but cant pass the Nclex (their pass rate BTW, 66%). Could that possibly be because of your program? With such academic integrity in question, their new strategy...They have seriously told us that we cannot whisper, look around or even move our lips during testing, which by the way is occurring in the privacy of our own homes, under the watchful eye of lock down browser. They refuse to even discuss bringing students back to campus on an effort to prevent this "cheating". The real reason for this is they do not have to faculty to teach all of the students they have so greedily enrolled in their nursing program. We are in week 4 and finally got a clinical instructor. Wow that was something. She came on to webex for 5 minutes, actually asked us what we usually do, then posted a bunch of busy work and said see you back around 12..then popped back on at about 12:18 and told us to return at 2:15 (2;30 is the end of the day), and then she never came back! I think this school is going to loose their credentialing . My advice is apply to a real school. This place is a cesspool."

"Run Run Run !!!!! This school is not for the student this school is about money and money only. I am still here with not many options to run. Bill is high and they don't care if you ask for help in class. The test requirements and grading is horrible. You will never know what your bad at because they don't even help you with your mistakes. Grading is s secret they can add change and redo the test and you cant see what was change what was wrong or what you got right. How do you learn to correct your mistakes if you don't even know what they are. Let alone teach your self. I really wish I researched better then this place is a nightmare and the administration is useless. They are not here to make nurses but to put you in a hospital. Most of my class are graduating soon and doesn't even know patient care. You can scream and yell and they will fail you. I feel like I'm locked in a jail cell here. Also, forget about working they destroy that too with no organization what so ever."

"Went to Rasmussen in Topeka. Graduated in 2019. Loved the program. Was it difficult? Yes. Is it geared towards people who have medical knowledge? Yes. Passed my boards the first try. After reading these reviews, it seems most people wanted to be handheld through the program. But no nursing program will do that. You get out of it, what you put into it. So, just study, make sure you’re organized and lean on your classmates to help pull you through the tough classes. Most of the instructors really want to help you, and during clinicals be proactive and don’t sit back and wait."

"terrible school even worse teachers, don't waste your money! wish I had never spent a dime here, it was a waste of time, the teachers don't even help, and they kick out people they don't like. Instead go to a state school, this is a crappy college with no benefits."

"Okay so this college first of all is horrible!!! Second there online classes especially the CBE classes it takes the person who is grading the assignments a long time to grade them. Third the college is money hungry it's all about money and profit. Seriously I wouldn't recommend this college. My wife's sister took medical assistant courses Aurora campus and it was horrible, thank god she finished and found work after 2 months. The school will not care to help you find work after you receive your degree!!!"

"I have no positive reviews for the school. My campus was in the Tampa Bay area. Teachers literally do the minimum and are getting paid for it, it's horrible. You will meet a few that genuinely care and want you to succeed but it's rare. Instructors are mostly just there for the extra money and you will have to learn literally most of the content yourself. If you have questions, even if the something is unclear, you will likely be told to read the unclear instructions again...it's almost comical. I cannot recommend to school to anyone. While I made it through, it was a headache and can most definitely be better. As others have said, they do not care. It's a typical for profit school. 40k for a self-taught degree...if you make it through this program, you can do anything, seriously."

"I recently graduated from the Tampa/Brandon campus and as with any school you have hiccups and things that don't always go as planned, as adults we push forward and move past them. With that being said I found that Rasmussen College has an excellent Professional Nursing program, it is not given to you. You have to dedicate the time and have the self discipline to work on your own when required it is an accelerated program and it is told upfront of the expectations and requirements. You are advised to not work if at all possible and I know that it is difficult and some people have no choice but you should not run down a schools name because you have to work, when advised not to. You should plan accordingly before signing up and committing to such a rigorous program. I have had excellent instructors throughout my journey some I gained more from than others but nevertheless I walked away with a little bit of something from every instructor I have crossed paths with. Is there some disorganization within administration of course no job is perfect and they are all human just like us and deal with an enormous workload with all the students they have in the nursing program. I learned very quickly in the program what was going to work for me and what was not, I had to withdraw from one of my initial classes not from failing but because I had to rethink and refocus my plan if I was going to continue . I came back the next quarter prepared and focused knowing what was expected of me and what I had to do to meet those expectations. It frustrates me to see such negative comments about Rasmussen and I know each campus is different, however Tampa/Brandon has excellent instructors who take time and actually care about the students and if you feel different I am sorry you didn't make the best of your experience you get out what you put in. I learned so much during my time there and if you graduated and passed your NCLEX you walked away with some knowledge because yes you may have things you have to self motivate and learn but the meat and potatoes of what you learned what instilled from the great instructors at Rasmussen. Ok review over dispute me if you like but this was my experience and it was great!"

"The Bloomington campus is complete trash! I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone!!! if you decide that this is your only choice, keep the following in mind. Be prepared to teach yourself every single nursing content. You will be held to extremely high standards but the administration will not live up to their own expectations. They will tell you lies on when schedules and clinical dates are being released and if you have any problems about the school or faculty, you are directed to contact the dean. The dean will then tell you what you need to hear but will never act on their promises and leave you frustrated. Also, the dean changes about 2 times a quarter so you're never sure whose the dean. The professors will not teach you anything or care whether you succeed or not until you get to the last quarter 1 of them will try to help and be understanding. The only positive things about this school is that you can finish the program in 1 year and 3 months and clinical teachers will pass you even if you haven't learned any nursing skills. I have seen students make many medication administration errors and have passed clinical. The labs are a complete joke but you will do test outs in a group except for head to toe assessments and pass. I was fortunate enough to have supporting family that could help me financially so I was able to have this program as my only focus. I am going to take the nclex soon and I feel very under prepared and praying that I pass. I do want to add that they offered free nclex prep which is nice."

"Like most schools, the Rasmussen nursing program has pros and cons. It is fast paced with little room for error and requires some serious self motivation. Most of the main instructors are wonderful, knowledgeable, and supportive. Several of the clinical instructors left something to be desired. As with most things in life you will get what you put into this program. One of the greatest things about this nursing program over some others is that all of the exams are NCLEX style meaning when you go to take your NCLEX you will know what to expect and be well prepared. Cons to this school: A lot of disorganization, some questionable billing practices, and not the best clinical opportunities. In the end nursing school is damn hard no matter what school you go to! If you are prepared to put your all into it you can and will be successful at this school."
