Stanbridge University Reviews
So...the teachers mean well, they aren't the problem. Mostly the school is all fake, just a business trying to make the most money they can, meanwhile we aren't landing jobs that pay enough to pay back the tuition/loans they charge us - because they don't care. It's all pretend and advertising retoric. Save yourself time and wait for Saddleback, they will actually get you a job. Also, lol "president" of the college is really the CEO and eh's making a profit. FOR PROFIT SCHOOL. Lame.
I give one star to stanbridge college because Stanbridge college is not an organize college at all. I graduated from LVN program part-time on 2012 from this school. I applied for AND program even though I did not have a good experience with Stanbridge College but their hours was ok with my job. I applied on March 2015, and I took entrance test (Accuplace) on May 2015. After I finished with all paper works & interview on October 2015 by mid November, I called them to find out when list is going to be out. They did not care even to call you and let you know. The admin. told me that I didn't make the list!! I'm working in medical field for more than 12 years & have LVN from stanbridge! He told me they picked those students that they took TEAS test, I said "what? " Tease test is not school is require. You cannot do this to students. Stanbridge college requirement is Accuplace but they lied because they picked only those that took the TEAS! In addition, he told me mostly those people, which they have their Bachelor degree they got pick. Do you think is it fair the entire hidden requirement? They waste my time for 7 months. They did the same to one of my colleague. He took the TEAS & he had all pre-req done, & good GPA. Stanbridge college told him you got accepted for August 2015 but after a week they called him, and they told him" sorry we don't have any spot for you but we put you down for January 2016" , which the actual program start May 2016! They did not give any explanation to him that why they did change their mind.
Excellent labs - we had beautiful labs and access to the nursing programs simulation lab which is world class as well as the new skills lab. We did not get to use the new synthetic cadaver lab as it was opened towards the end of our classes but it will be a great resource for future students. The instructors were practitioners and enjoyed teaching bar two - one that was too strict in my opinion and another that was too easy. The school had 100% pass rate for NBCOT last year and am hoping that reputation and my hard work gets me licensed in March!
Yess! Finally done - loved the program and my classmates. Clinical sites were excellent - NCLEX review was early but very good - long days, the Judy Miller class needs to have shorter days. Thank you Charles for your positive attitude!
The full time program is tough with school 5 days a week. It took a while to get used to the pace but by term 2 I got the drill down. My clinical sites were excellent. I loved WAMC and Healthbridge. My instructors were AWESOME - thank you Ms. A and Ms. M and Ms. P. We only used the new Simulation lab in term 4 but the practice codes were really useful.
We had great clinical sites and I loved my acute rotations. OB was short and we experienced both c-section & vaginal deliveries but rotation was short. Sim lab experience was awesome. Peds was good but Healthbridge census was low during our rotation. Overall very good instructors with the exception of a few old school nurses who are very strict.
Awesome program, loved every bit of it. Met lifelong friends,and had an enjoyable experience. Stanbridge has a large therapy program and every imaginable lab possible. Get to know your fieldwork coordinators.
Great campus - love the renovations to the student lounge, and student center. Our program has very a nice director and the teachers are very well educated and approachable at the same time. Lots of different labs to practice in. Don't like the parking options on some days.
I attended standbridge doing part time. Started june 2011. The staff is disorganized, rude, unhelpful,disrespectful to students & Change things constantly w either a short notice or none at all. You are harassed by staff. And you are toldto bring any concerns you have through proper chain of command but once you do you get harrased more and they don't do anything to resolve the problem. I was told you would gain weight attending there. I lost weight and am now on prescritions for stress/anxiety and depression due to the way the school treated me. The tutor for math will confuse you more than help you. I would never have chosen this school if I knew I would go through such mental and physical stress. Plus they put all the money into things to attract potential students big screen tv smart boards and more to fancy up the way you see the school and give empty promises. Don't waste your time!!!
So anyways I am reading these reviews that are being posted here and I couldnt help but post back due to one review that made me laugh. She is whinning about the treatment she was receiving from the instructors while she was attending. Get ready for real life honey. When your DON calls you into her office and rips you a new one and has you in tears at work, your gonna realize these nursing instructors were sweet as pie.
They push you to succeed and if you cant succeed then this isnt the job for you PERIOD. So get ready to be bawling your whole career when the charge nurse and DON are on your tail about your job. The instructors are the best and expect a lot from their students. The people complaining are obviously the ones who thought they could cakewalk through this school and pass.
