I failed 1 coding class due to not having time to focus, I dealt with the sudden death of my younger brother and fell behind and did not understand the information as necessary. I informed my advisor that I needed to drop the class and try again the next semester when I had a clear mind and that I would sign up for a tutor. I did these things, my advisor and tutor cheered me on and reminded me that I only needed a 73% to pass. I received a 75%, great right? Wrong! I was misinformed and my new advisor said that I unfortunately needed a 78% and that I would be getting dropped out of the program. Now mind you I had this class and 2 more to finish before I received my degree that I am now in debt for $30,000 for. I asked if there was a way to get back in the program and was told I could take the class at another college and transfer back but was not guaranteed the credits I had earned upon return. I looked around at other colleges anyway and most of them would only be able to transfer 1 semester worth of credits and I would have to start fresh just to take the one class! $30,000 wasted and no degree to show for it, all due to one class and a lying student advisor.
I am so glad I read the reviews on Rasmussen. I have been to other University's and I have NEVER seen a school like this one. The staff is so rude and truely does not care about the students. I have a disability and have asked for assistance and my requests were denied. I was treated so poorly. I have filed a complaint with the ADA. The nursing coordinator is a joke! I swear the TEAS test is rigged somehow. I have been in the medical field for 15 years and have many medical connections. They (hospital and clinic HR) state they do not have anything good to say about the "Nurses" that are pumped out of here. My advise, and as everyone can clearly see, DO NOT give this school your money. There are so many good schools out there. And this institution is not one of them. They really need to be investigated by the school board. It's a sham!
I was a student at Rasmussen college school of nursing, i thought it was a good program during orientation I asked several times about accreditation and never got a good answer. Their Rn to Bsn program is accredited but not the Rn. I was dropped from the program because two times I missed the 79% exam average by less than a point which caused me to fail out. I understand this fact. But I still keep in contact with the people in my cohort and several of them have received passing grades even though they should have failed and been dropped from the course like I was. The whole let's take pharmacology and intro to nursing is a trip to start with and then follow it up with mental health and nursing 2. When you exams are every week 4-6 chapters of material each week. It is just retarded and if you as a teacher to help you with something don't expect a reply for 2-3 weeks because they teach 3-4 classes online and are in a different state. Waste of 16 months go somewhere else.
Warning! Do not attend this school! It's a big waste of money and time!!!! I regret going to this school. I do not recommended this school to anyone. Worst school ever! The Professor are lazy they take forever to reply back and the assignment insertion are horrible! Trust me and everyone that saying stay away from this school! Don't be like us we regeting going here. Do not go to this school!
This school is a waste of time and a waste of money. First of all, the staff was not helpful whatsoever and acted like you were bothering them by calling them and asking questions. Isn't that what their job is? Second of all, On top of all of that, when I enrolled I asked if the Early Childhood Education certificate would be what I needed to be a preschool teachers assistant, and I was told it was EXACTLY what I needed to be a preschool teachers assistant! I started calling the schools in my county just to confirm because I know certain places want different types of degrees and training for certain jobs. I called TEN different districts in my surrounding area and every single one of them looked up the Early Childhood Education Certificate awarded by Rasmussen and they ALL said it was useless and meant nothing. One even said I might as well write "I'm a teacher now" on a piece of paper and it would be about the same as the certificate they gave. I decided right then and there that Rasmussen was not a good fit for me (or anyone else for that matter) and I requested to drop (I was well within the dates for my financial aid to not be affected!). The advisor that I spoke with to request that I cancel enrollment informed me that "if I gave up so easily I would not go anywhere in life." I am currently in a Medical Administrative Assistant program and I have a 4.0 GPA so it was most definitely the school that was an issue, not my motivation or determination. So fast forward 3 weeks. I think I've been dropped from classes, my financial aid is up to date, and I'm ready to start classes at UMA! Imagine my surprise when they tell me I am already attending a different school and have used 80% of my 17-18 FAFSA. I was outraged, but I tried to keep my cool. I emailed the academic advisor and the financial aid department requesting documentation that I was in fact NOT attending and NOT using financial aid. The only response I received was a template, and there was not even a single attempt to fill it out. It literally said "Dear ?StudentName?: and it was like that for the entire "document." That is unofficial and no one is going to accept that. I asked if I may have the contact information for a supervisor or director so that I could get the issue actually resolved. The advisor informed me that he did not have to give me the information and he had the nerve to tell me I "don't have to be a bitch because I'm not getting my way." You bet I found that contact information myself and I made sure to send the director the screenshot of every conversation I had with the advisors. He informed that on his end there was never any attempt made to drop me or cancel my FAFSA, so he corrected the issue himself. This school is an absolute joke. If you are enrolled or planning to enroll in Rasmussen, I BEG you to please reconsider so that you don't have the same issues I and so many others have had. P.S. If it were possible to give zero stars, or even negative numbered stars, I absolutely would.
Great experience!!! Hard program to get through, but what nursing program is easy.. I learned alot passed my boards and I can thank the professors at Rasmussen College of Fort Myers. People may have negative comments but the program is hard and fast so you must buckle down and teach yourself a lot. I appreciate the staff for their assistance in helping me start my career.
First off I would like to say that the teachers were great and the classes were good. The problem is the support staff. This was an accelerated program 2 classes per 5 1/2 week semesters. That schedule kicked my butt. It was very hard for me to work full time, be a mom and do this schedule. Now here is where my issue comes into play, I was originally supposed to be in a program for 18 months. At some point they shortened it for 9 months. I was told if the load of classes were overwhelming I could change program or go to traditional semesters. When I called , after the first 5 1/2 weeks to say that it is overwhelming I was told it was too late and there is nothing that I can do. So basically I did what I needed to do to pass the classes but I didn't learn. So again, it is a good program you just have to make sure you have a clear understanding that there they are 5 1/2 week semesters doing 2 classes at a the time!
This is a scam! Pls do not attend here! They take your money and dont teach you anything. They slam you with Funds and Pharm in one semester, several students failed one or both. Its horrible. The teachers plot against you to fail, and do not teach about anything on the test. I was on honor roll for many semesters and also have several other degrees from various Universities. This I repeat is a scam! They never show you your test so you can see what you got wrong and improve. Oh and just food for thought, if you are a minority this school is not for you due to the teachers being RACIST and overtly treating those of color poorly in comparison to the other students. Its ourtight shameful. They even use the discrimination in their grading practices,witnessed it firsthand. It's awful and a no-win situation. The graduation rate is only 25% look it up d your research and if in like the movie says.. GET OUT! Youre welcome!
Incredibly disappointed in the education I received. Started off perfect, my advisor was super nice and i liked my professors and classes. 2nd quarter came around and it was awful. My professors were not helpful an wouldn't return emails or calls. They lacked creativity, and I was often scolded for thinking outside the box. The professors I had would leave horrible feedback. I was a straight A student at a well known art school before this, I took graduate level classes as a high school senior, so getting C's and D's was not okay. I wouldn't go here again, ever. My advisor after the first quarter wouldn't return my emails or calls, and wouldn't give me a full class schedule. this whole thing has come as a major blow to my confidence, even my past professors have looked at the work i submitted and raved about it. Finally changing schools after three horrible quarters with this school. Thank god!!!!!!
I have two degrees from Rasmussen College and earning both took a lot of work on my part. Because I took my education seriously, my time and degrees have fortified my knowledge and increased my employment opportunities. If your complaining about your grades and or financial aid, snap out of it - pay attention to the details and be responsible. If not, drop out so someone who is serious about improving their life can take your seat! BTW, l doubled my income so working hard can pay off. If your not, try pulling your baby talk to another college or university and see how far you will get - no where!
