"It's laughable that anyone on this site, except the shills, gives this school a sterling review. For many years now it has essentially functioned as a loan mill. It has been bought and sold by wall street types 3 times in the past year and a few months. So many other ways to become a nurse than to take a chance on a financial house of cards. Go to collegescorecard.gov to understand my position on this so-called college."

"Unfortunately everything posted on here about the South NP program is true. They are a predatory school. I entered the NP program April 2018. I have had no help from the professors in fact they have attempted to use discriminatory grading practices to which I had to threatening calling an Ombudsman. Its quite funny how they could then act in a fair and responsible manner. My academic advisor is an absolute sarcastic child when I need help. Who actually laughs at me when at call and ask questions. You have no resources for help. The Advanded Practice Nursing class I am currently enrolled in, the professor told us none of us would pass any test. She stated this was done on purpose by the Dean because a previous student had published the test online. Well thats great so now you are going to fail all of us why am I even in this class, why is South taking my money and then the professors telling us in a webinar that we will all fail. Please listen to these reviews and go elsewhere they are very much taking money from innocent students who have a true drive to better themselves."

"Be very careful with this university. They over bill your student loan provider. I had opted out of e-text books and they still billed me for it. They charge you a clinical fee of $500.00 when you take your first class for the ARNP program that is non refundable ( even though you do not start clinicals until the end of the program). If you drop out of the program or you switch to a degree that doesn't require clinicals you do not get the money back. I had one bill that wasn't fully covered by my student loan provider, so i had to pay the difference out of pocket which i did before the payment was due, a week later i get a call from a collection agency about a bill that was not paid to South University. I told them that i had paid and i sent them the proof and they got off my back. But south university uses a debit collection agency to get there money, keep that in mind if you have good credit, cause once a bill goes into collection it brings your credit score down. There is a test the is required towards the end of the ARNP program that you must pass if you fail the test your removed from the program. However, they do not tell you about this test when you sign up for the program. Most people are surprised when they eventually have to take the test. They do not give you any study material for this must pass test either. There clinical coordinators are incompetent. You send them all thepaper work they need to process so you can do clinicals a month in advance and they lose all the paper work. which delays your clinical start time. And if you complain no one cares. They are getting $60,000 or more out of you from this program and they have terrible customer service. You try to talk to the Dean of the program and you can never get ahold of him. And when you do get an email response its a robo replied that states please reviewed your student handbook. Thats all, you complain about a bunch of things to the dean of the program and all you get in response is please review your student handbook. im pretty sure the dean doesn't even read the emails or even receive them. I've gone to school for my BSN at Chamberlain University when i emailed the dean i got a swift reply and it wasn't a robo reply. At south if you email the dean it could take weeks for a reply and when you do get a reply its a robo reply. Im still in awe that this school hasn't lost the accreditation but i wont be surprised if they do lose it in the future. If your looking to do your ARNP go somewhere else this school is not worth the problems."

"Fairly new program, so there were inconsistencies between my class and the class before and after us. They did not help us to find preceptors. Overall an "okay" experience."
