Stenberg College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (26)
Enjoyed the school. Like any school, some instructors were better than others. The hands on experience and practicums were amazing. The courses took some time to get into the groove and get to know our cohort, but once we did it worked well and flowed. We had online discussion and our group really challenged each other. I would encourage people to do more than their basic material and really reasearch topics because this is such an interesting field. Also, for perceptorships, were placed at the same locations as other Douglas and Kwantlen Grad. And, FYI working with a large health authority in Greater Vancouver, my first year with Health Authority I made over 70k as a casual, and then got a RFT line. Since then, I have had a ton of opportunities to further my education and skills. Completed my BSNU at Douglas and now planning to do my NP. I am really greatful to Stenberg and REALLY enjoy my job.
Did not like this school at all. The teachers and councillors pick there favourites usually the white people get favoured more. It may sound extreme to make accusations like that but unfortunately its true. They get more exceptions then anyone. No matter what your concern is they wont care. They act like they do but they dont. They fail you and dont care. And only the favourites get passed even if they fail. My biggest regret Im life is picking this disgusting school. My instructor was a racist self centered instructor, who claims to be so rich. Yet shes a instructor at Stenberg College lol. Shes an older white lady who teaches nursing unit clerk.
This college is extremely unprofessional. They have recruiters on staff that reel you in and take your money. Then, once you have paid the staff could not care less about your well being in the course. If you fail it's just more free money for them. The "instructors" were undereducated, and there was a lot of self teaching required. Three instructors admitted to only seeing the coursework three days prior to the course. Luckily I was able to do it on my own. However, I saw many classmates get kicked to the curb (about 30% of the class). I strongly advise that you seriously consider other schools before enrolling here. Side note: Extremely overpriced.
Excellent program the way it is set up through distance learning. Labs were great, practicum was very beneficial. Lab instructors were super knowledgeable and helpful in everyway. Most online instructors were good but the A/P course definitely needs some changing. It is a very complex program and requires LOTS of studying, and work ,the coursework/assignments are tough but helps when studying for the registry exam. Labs were also lots of work, but very rewarding. Labs were very professional, school officials were for the most part easy to contact. Adobe meetings each week helped clarify coursework and even though the program was partly online, it felt like there was always someone there to help (other students, instructors...). I do recommend this program but the only downfall is that there are not many jobs for the career in Canada and this should be made known.
Honestly, going into this program I had high hopes and was excited to begin as I could learn from the comfort of my home even though the cost of the program was absurd, especially to get a diploma out of it. Turns out this college is actually very unprofessional and I regret wasting my time and money at this 'college'. It is disorganized from the get go and only gets worse as time progresses. The instructors and institution sounded quite promising and supportive at first, but as you get into the program, they begin to try to fail you on purpose, will put students on academic probation for insufficient reasons, and will ignore you when you seek out for clarification or help. Stenberg college is a joke and is just out to get every student's money, no matter what it takes for them to get there, even if that means failing or dismissing a straight-A student. Furthermore, they do not treat students fairly and certainly will discriminate certain students depending on multiple factors. The program has many flaws and most of the time the courses were not updated so you can't complete coursework until the school gets back to you, which seems to be impossible. There is no student support and if you reach out for a life coach or tutor, they will simply ignore you. There will be many errors in the quizzes and exams, and you loose marks due to their disorganization and errors. I regret even considering to complete my post-secondary education here and will not recommend that anyone attends this college. I have nothing positive to say about this college as I think they are a joke. Please, don't go to this 'college'.
A&P is supposed to be the basic and foundation of nursing. However, it was hard to succeed in this course due to the instructor's unprofessional and failure to deliver the material successfully to the students. There was also 1) Lack of support system. 2) Money-making school. Save your time and money. Cheers.
Overall the school is alright, they are nice however... They will try to purposely fail you. They do not help in the courses especially A&P Steve is a horrible instructor. I did not pay money to hear about his life I paid to get a education. Which he can not give to the students. Worst school and if you fail you will NOT get a penny back!
Interesting to read all these comments. I am a Stenberg grad and have been practicing psychiatric nursing for over 5 years now. I read these comments and see a lot of negativity. I'm not saying there aren't things Stenberg could do better at, however, there are some good opportunities through this school and the online learning environment. For eg., in a traditional classroom you may have a few hours a week and projects to do, whereas the online learning environment the classroom is open all day/week long and you also have projects to do. With such access to the classroom conversations can be vibrant, lengthy and extremely thoughtful- but only so if there are engaged minds in the process. In my experience at numerous post secondary courses/programs over my life people have always complained about certain aspects of a school. I've also noticed complaints can get louder when people encounter a bad experience, sometimes for something that has nothing to do with the school at all. The school can provide an opportunity but it's up to the learner to seize it. Will you be an active participant or simply contribute the bare minimum? How much do you want to learn? How determined are you? My point is not to defend the school as I already mentioned there are many things it could do better, however, its always easy to blame something else. Your success as a psychiatric nurse through this program is going to depend significantly on how engaged you are as a learner, how hard you push yourself and how bad you want this...
Worst college ever! Money maker only. Completely unorganized. A joke. DO NOT ATTEND STENBERG. Got the wrong texts sent to me, powerpoints and the schools own written texts had so many errors. Practicum was unorganized, didn't hear about grad until a week before. Complete joke in all ways. Do not waste your money.
Stenberg College is a money-maker. They do not care about their students. They price their programs high, babysit you through admissions, and dont care if you fail (anything under 70%) because you will owe them your tuition anyways. Though they do have industry connections, they have a bad reputation because their programs arent that great. You are a commodity to them, please find a better place to complete your education!
