"I am a current student and the online classes are not helpful at all. I am a very smart student but I am failing my classes. Each quiz says it has 15 questions and test have 25 but the system is only letting me see and answer 9 quiz questions and 21 test questions. The system they use to is not good. I am failing and it is something that I have not even done myself. I have reached out to the school and teachers and have gotten only the run around. This is not ok. Plus this is something I am paying for mostly out of pocket because FAFSA does not cover it all."

"I cannot say in enough ways, do not do it. Do not go to this school. I am not afraid of hard work. I have a degree from an online program in the past. I was pregnant with my fifth child and my brother was killed while I finished that degree and is still wasn't as bad as this one is. Rasmussen has a way of saying things like "Oh, they'll explain that later", except that no one ever explains anything! I sit in classrooms where teachers read PowerPoints that I clearly can read at home. They do not teach material that is being tested on. I feel so much pressure from exams that in the past year I have gone from 130 pounds to a little over a hundred pounds. I failed one class and you cannot fail two and in a class with only three exams, if you do poorly on one, you cannot do poorly on two. The way they grade exams and course work is separate. There are three exams and those scores are not averaged in with your other course work. There is no room for error and there is no way to make up points. They tell you to go to them for help, but that is a lie. The class that I failed, I have the same instructor for the second time. I re-submitted a PowerPoint that she gave me 100%. The second time she gave me 85%. I asked about the inconsistancy in grading. I got a very lame excuse and after that she has graded everthing harshly. I live every quarter by just making it through. I hate this school."

"It costs a lot in time, money and peace of mind just to get through the bureaucratic paperwork at Rasmussen. You pay for a third party to process 12 requirements including vaccinations, CPR, fingerprinting, TB testing, etc. They constantly reject forms which requires another copay to get more paperwork filled out. It's a real guessing game. They reject courses from other schools and generally make your life a misery. Once you are provisionally accepted your real problems begin. At that point when you are considered an actual student, all support went right out the window. Let them eat cake seemed to be the unofficial motto. But sometimes you manage to dodge..."

"If you're looking for a good RN program then do not attend this college. They expect you to teach yourself all of the core nursing courses and know everything that they throw at you. When you first go in for the orientation, they do not tell you that within the two years at this school, you are only allowed to fail one class. If you failed two classes, it doesn't matter if it's the same course or a different course, you're out of the program. How they determine if you pass is that they average the three tests in the course and it needs to be at least 78%. It doesn't matter if you have a 88% for your overall grade, if all of your three exams does not average 78% then you failed the class. For those of you who have no nursing experience, I recommend that you attend a college that has residential hands on class. This way you have an instructor who can actually help you. This college will just stack you with 6-8 chapters per week and expect you to know "everything" in the reading.Overall, this school is super expensive (one NUR course is $1440) and has too high of an expectation but offer no guidance."

"This school is a complete joke. They butter you up with how "perfect" their program is, just to learn its unorganized and its self taught. Don't waste your time or your money. Go get a real legit degree. The instructors are rude and don't know anything but power points. It's all about money."

"I would not recommend this school to anyone at all. The school is not a good one and you are pretty much teaching yourself. There is an exam at the end of the program that need to get 92% on to get your degree and they don't tell you that until the end when you are in the last class."

"Rasmussen College is a high price to pay for a lack of an education. There are a lot of politics that take place interfering with the classes. You get very little hands on at the lack luster clinical sites. You will pay an exorbitant amount of money to be enrolled in online courses where you will teach yourself pharmacology, how to deliver a baby and most importantly how to properly care for a pediatric patient. One of my biggest regrets in my education is wasting time and money for such a subpar nursing program."
