"I’ve quite enjoyed Regis Colleges’ BSN-DNP program. It’s very well organized, and understandable. Everything had clear instructions, and the teachers gave good feedback. Definitely more organized and with it than the BSN program I attended. Their admissions team was really good to work with as well."

"Where shall I begin. I have always been an honest, hardworking, ambitious, and dedicated student. I have NEVER failed a class until I was in the Regis College FNP program. I had all's A's and B's (mostly A's) up to this point throughout my college career. That all ended when it came to my second to last semester. I believe they know you're locked in and will pay for a new semester in order to follow through with your dreams of becoming a FNP. I truly believe they are running a money making scheme at the students expense. The program relies heavily on an I-Human platform which has several kinks that have not been worked out. If you don't participate in the seminar you will not know how to "beat" the I-Human patient simulation scenarios. Every scenario is very far from reality and nothing but a joke. I learned nothing from it. Case studies and SOAP notes would have promoted higher learning and prepared me for clinicals and the real world. I was doing EXTRA unnecessary work because the I-Human program brings you through several assignments and my professor did not mention it to me once, knowing and seeing I'm going way overboard, but instead failed me. What a kick in the stomach. We were not given one tool for clinical therefor you will be a deer i headlights. A friend of mine went through the Rivier online program and she was providing me with the tools her school provided her because they genuinely care about their students success. Regis failed several VERY bright, professional, and ambitious students the last 1-2 semesters. Again, a money making scheme. I have come to believe this is truly their motive. This is a completely self taught program with little to none staff support. You are left out for the wolves in a "sink or swim" learning environment. The program is run by arrogant, self-important, condescending, belittling leaders who do not promote a positive learning environment or student success. I would NOT recommend this program to anyone I care about. Run far away and don't waste your money. Spend it on a school where you know student success and support is their top priority."

"Terrible MSN program. Many Professors are rude and disrespectful to students (only a handful of professors are good here). They try to fail many students out of the MSN program, which just makes students competitive with each other and creates a stressful and unpleasant environment to learn in. I can't recommend the MSN program because of this."

"Went for postgrad primary care NP school. I was judged on my grammar & spelling instead of being judged on my skills. As someone whose English is the 2nd lang., it seemed ridiculous to penalize me for missing a minor word here or there, or for punctuation errors. Also, at certain points, even when I gave the correct ans., I was told "that's not the answer I wanted. I wanted the ans. fr. the book", except the book was outdated, & I was currently working as an NP already & knew what the updated protocols were. I attempted to challenge this ruling, & lost. I know others in my class complained of similar issues. Instructors were dismissive, and a letter to the dean was ignored. I CANNOT recommend this school to anyone. I tx to another univ. where I got great grades & the instructors were extremely attentive to their students. The class I failed at Regis I got an A in at the other school bec. grammar was not in the curriculum. Regis cost me a lot of money & time, also."

"I should’ve ran the first day I had issues with student services not returning my calls. When I received my acceptance letter in July, I left numerous messages for my advisor Rachel and Lawrence to call me back and she never did. Finally I was informed that I could schedule an appointment online which I did a week out. I waited for my advisor Rachel to call me and she never did. So I called her and left a voicemail stating I’ve left numerous voicemails and I made an appointment today at 5 PM and really have a lot of questions before I start my classes. She never called me back.She called me the next day while I was at work attempting to go over the questions I had. I finally got a hold of her a week before my courses start it, after numerous telephone calls and emails, and she was less than helpful. I continue to start my classes because I want to bypass my bachelors and go into my masters, and this is the only school I found online that will allow me to do that. September 4th and 5th I attempted to withdraw my courses due to a medical emergency and me having to have surgery. I called the next day on September 6 and spoke with a Sierra in the support office and she told me that she seen I attempted to drop on the fourth and the fifth, and that I should attempt to email registration regarding my drop because my classes were still going. I received the email confirmation That I was dropped but yet I was still in rolled in my classes. So a week later I again began to call the office to speak with somebody. Again nobody called me back. Finally I got a hold of somebody who told me I need to email this Mark guy. As soon as I got In touch with him he told me that I did not drop prior to the drop date, which was September 7. Then I got another email stating that I was dropped. So I caught him and when I wason the phone with him he was very argumentative and raise his voice at me. He told me that “this will go in your favor“ but when I asked if he can look at the online portal and see when I dropped the course, he stated that you cannot drop a course online. If that’s the case why did IT tell me that is how I’m supposed to drop a course? Anyways if I was you I would not waste any money or time invested in this establishment. It is triple the amount of other online schools, You’re pretty much on your own when it comes to guidance in your career path, and support services, financial aid, the head registration office, Don’t care about their students. It’s a joke! I’m going to Walden"

"Regis College Masters of Occupational Therapy program is the newest occupational therapy program in Massachusetts. The professors are very passionate about the field and they have very diverse and experienced adjunct professors as well. The program is small which has its advantages and disadvantages. All the professors get to know you on a personal level and are invested in your success. You have plenty of opportunities to get extra help when needed and the professors make sure you do not fall behind on your course work. One disadvantage is that they dont have some of the connections for fieldwork compared to the bigger Boston schools. However, its fieldwork runs at different times compared to other schools because its a January start. The program has been a great experience thus far, and hope it prepares me for my future career."

"The generic master's program to become a nurse practitioner is very competitive to get into, so there is a high-caliber of dedicated and passionate students. Professors are not only dedicated to ensuring that students succeed in the program, but also that they are prepared to be excellent nurses and nurse practitioners. Students have a wide range of clinical experiences for which they are well-prepared by both classroom work as well as the simulation lab. Mass communication is a bit lacking, but one-on-one professors and faculty are generally extremely helpful and friendly."

"Regis College is a 4-year liberal arts college with several graduate programs. It is nested within Weston, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods within the state of Massachusetts. Regis is well known for its graduate nursing program. Well equipped machines in the nursing labs simulate real-life scenarios, aiding students in their preparation for the real-world. Our typical classroom size of about 30 students is always taught by a professor who has years of experience in the field and an accompanying graduate degree. Each professor is dedicated to their students' success on the board exam as well as in the real-world. The Regis College Master's in Nursing Program equips its students with the art and the science of advanced practice nursing, creating opportunities for students to gain confidence in practice of the profession through clinical at the top hospitals in the state of Massachusetts. I am so very proud to say that I am a member of the Regis College community. Once again I have been given a great opportunity to be educated by the faculty of Regis College, developing my skills with the good tools that this college has to offer."

"The program is competitive and utilizes the most advanced and up-to-date technology to teach students. However this emphasis on technology (i.e. the ipad initiative) makes students dependent on items that may not always be present. This in turn presents a problem in the education system, in which students who go to work in their chosen fields expect to rely on technology to solve problems, when the medical field is supposed to be filled with quick-thinking individuals who are able to problem-solve effectively based on their knowledge and experience."

"The pro is definitely the value of the education. The price of the graduate programs are unbeatable in the Greater Boston area, and scholarships are often provided. The program is extremely flexible and the administration and faculty are accessible and friendly. The biggest negative is that my particular program is not yet accredited, but it should be up for accreditation soon."
