I attended the University of Phoenix online for my bachelors of science in nursing (BSN). I was a registered nurse but I wanted to further my career because education is extremely important to me. I had a great experience going to school for my BSN. I feel it truly made me a better writer. I was required to write an essay every single week, and even though I dreaded writing one so often, it benefited me tremendously in the long run. Now I'm going to school for my masters in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and it's making my transition so much easier. I have made straight A's in every single class, including the weighting portion. I feel the University of Phoenix made me a better, more educated nurse!
This is a great school if you're not trying to actually learn anything! In the two years I have attended I have not been challenged once! I have never gotten below an A even if I do not complete the work to college standards. They have created their own APA format. They do not enforce citations and plagiarism is everywhere. Their course material is outdated and biased and they never fully teach you the subject. How can you learn an entire subject matter in 5 weeks and be considered anywhere near ready for the workplace? I have never once even taken an exam! This school is a joke, a scam, and for a $60,000 degree I should be learning SOMETHING. Don't waste your money on a bogus education! Go somewhere that is actually worth it!
I really enjoyed the University of Phoenix, I attended once a week for 3 hours in the evening and had in class time with an instructor and then a week to work on assignments. This schedule worked well as I was a full time RN and going to school. I was able to finish in two years. I am enjoying my graduate degree at Western Governors University as it lets me move as quickly as I want through the program. I love their student mentoring program. I am assigned a student mentor who will stay with me and help me until I graduate with courses and whatever other needs I have. I am excited for this adventure in graduate school.
Academic Advisors are very helpful. Great customer service. One thing I did not like was group projects and assignments. I found it annoying to complete group work in an online course. Being able to complete assignments at my own pace became difficult. As long you complete assignments and posts on time, then you should not have a problem graduating.
I graduated in 2015 with a bachelor's in science:nursing. My experience was great. I attended both on campus and online. We were a fast paced program. 18 months to complete. I didn't apply for financial aid therefore i cannot comment on this portion. I found the instructors to be highly qualified and helpful. Many were either MDs' or PhD. For working nurses i don't know of a more convenient method. Unless you live right next to a college.
DO NOT GO IF YOU ARE MILITARY. They dropped us 3 times in the beginning then changed their policies regarding course enrollment so Veterans will not get their BAH on the first. It's a scam. I am going to have to drop out because they don't care about military personnel at all.
Most lousy school. Don't go to this school. I was so regreted but was TOO LATE! This school currently having some problem with government re: some school and financial issues. You need to go to Grand Canyon University. I hear my co-workers said it much better programs. Please trust me don't apply University of Phoenix. When working in a group you always having problem with students not turning their own part, or late, ect... Teachers are ok but other people working with you are so irresponsible. Its how the program design make student stress easily and became annoying to other students in their group.
The University is very unorganized. The members of the graduation team rotate very frequently and there is no real support from them. There is no consistency among professors and the amount of work required for classes and no way to choose your instructor. The only thing I liked was the 5 week format, but the University itself leaves a lot to be desired.
I would not recommend University of Phoenix to my worst enemy. I just completed my BSN through them, and it was an awful experience. My nursing classes were not too bad because the facilitators seemed to be more engaged, and concerned about the students and whether or not they learned anything. My non-nursing classes were awful. Particularly in regard to learning teams. I found that the students in these classes were there to just get by and earn a C grade, nothing more. Keep in mind that there are learning team assignments in every class, and if you get stuck with people who just don't care, you will end up doing their work as well as yours, or you will get a bad grade. This will bring your overall grade down, as well as your GPA! I am continuing on for a masters degree in nursing at a different online university that has no learning teams, thank God!! I am an independent learner, and I want my grades to reflect what I know, and my excellent work ethic. If you are looking for a degree program, go elsewhere!!
