Angry nursing student 2017 - 9/21/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"I am a current nursing student here at Swedish institute. God willing I will Graduate next December 2018. So far, this program has been everything I've never wanted a nursing program to be like (Everyone in my class feels the same way). It's very ghetto and very tacky. The teachers have no idea what they are talking about, the nursing home where we have our clinicals is a joke (bottom of the bottom), we get no respect anywhere we go with the uniforms on because they don't match (purple top with blue bottoms and a tacky yellow Swedish institute emblem on the front), not to mention the candle lighting ceremony that's supposed to be special a moment is held in a freaking classroom. If you don't believe me please look at this schools Instagram page. It's not cool. Especially since we spend so much money to go here. They are very cheap and unprofessional. The leaders of the nursing department are very nasty and they want you to fear them. They are all very condescending (Especially T & C). They aren't nice people and they don't make this experience a nice one. I'm so upset that I even wasted my money and time coming here to Swedish. GUYS PLEASE GO TO A REAL SCHOOL !!!! I'm begging you."

N/A - 10/3/2016
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2007
"The worst experience in my life. I'm an A+ Student, always have been. They give you the lowest grades so you repeat and your bill goes up and up. At first I didn't believe when I read the ratings, I was thinking, maybe these people do not study and end up criticizing professors but you know what after being there, I know it's all true. I have wasted my time and money to never graduate. When you go there don't listen to them saying the success rate at the NCLEX. The question you should ask is what is the percentage that makes it to the final courses and how many courses they have repeated. The answer is less than 5% make it to the NCLEX and most of them have already repeated at least one course what makes the real rate at the NCLEX comparing to the admission is about 2%. Please don't make the same mistake."

Cheryl - 9/30/2016
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"The absolute worst experience. I regret not listening to family and friends. I had one good instructor who taught me about nursing and how to be a nurse....but hey, he resigned! The equipment in the lab is old and does not work (broken IV machines, Simulation broken, etc). My OB teacher was lazy and afraid of technology. Administration is out of touch with the nursing program. Some professors were rude and mean especially the professor in charge of the lab. A visit from the state inspectors are overdue. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY BECAUSE YOU WILL RECEIVE A SUBSTANDARD EDUCATION."

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015
"Don't go please out of a class of 70 only a certain number of students got there license . The staff are ridiculous , the management of your time will be wasted. Favoritism will be seen. A bunch of nonsense of blunders. That are just terrible. I don't recommend this place for a overpriced place that can't even afford to fix up. Red flags almost everywhere. I regretted everyday of my school life."

Graduated Student - 2/18/2015
Degree: Massage Therapy
Graduation Year: 2001
"Worst school ever. Administration/Registration/Financial Aid is plagued with incompetence and lack of quality. It is a joke that they are even accredited school. It was like this when I attended in 2001 and apparently is still the same in 2015."

Bee Pee - 7/27/2014
Degree: Massage Therapy
Graduation Year: 2013
"This school used to be the best massage school. Some of the instructors say that everything changed when it was sold to another company. They let all kinds of people into this school. Some of them are drug addicts, high at school, people with criminal records. I was shocked. It wasn't what I expected. Most of the instructors are good teachers, but can't get their job done properly because of students that are not smart enough, disruptive, equipment that is broken or that they don't have. The school needs an upgrade. I wouldn't go there if I was choosing a school again."
