"So, just to start, I had already been a nurse in the field for 8 years before enrolling in their BSN program online. The BSN is a required stepping stone for me to obtain a higher degree level and career within the nursing world. UOP was highly recommended by several of my colleagues, so I decided to try it out. Not only did they provide a massive tuition discount, since my ADN college partnered with their university, but their accreditation was accepted by all CRNA schools, including the state universities where I live as well as several others I had checked before enrollment. Like most degree plans, you HAVE. TO. DO. THE. WORK. I had several late nights writing papers, researching, and juggling a career and family, but ended up graduating with a well-deserved 4.0 GPA. The staff was supportive, the classes (though not thought provoking for me as I was already in the field for quite some time) were easy to understand, and laid out the requirements. The staff was also supportive of any concerns regarding professors that were presented. I have found the majority of people who have complained about this program are those who thought they could enroll and do half-attempted work and try to pass through. I have had ZERO issue with their accreditation into grad school, and have had found that though I have no salary increase from going to ADN to BSN, I have been offered several promotions and more upper-level opportunities within my nursing career for the BSN credential. This was by far the most affordable program, and they provided me with the tools I needed to succeed. It is up to the student to be successful, success is a choice, not a given."

"I am very disappointed with the institution to the extent I wish I had chosen a different school. Before my enrollment, I spoke with Adrian who provided the information I needed to proceed with the enrollment process. Overall, I made my decision based on the price of my tuition- which was supposed to be $350 per credit hour, for every class, until the end of the program. However, since the beginning of the program, I have been trying to fix this issue. My tuition has been $398 per credit hour. I have spoken with so many different people, and nobody seems to care or be able to come up with a solution for my problem. The last person I spoke with gave me 7 to 10 days for the issue to be solved. Today is day number 15 and I have not received a call back to follow up on my request. At this point, I am not sure what else I can do. I need to get this resolved as I cannot afford the higher rate. Can someone assist me?"

"I do not recommend anyone continuing their education at this school.I enrolled in this program so that I can move on to the next stage in my career. It was my only option. The enrollment counselors make it seem like this is the best program for adult learners.However, once in the program some of the instructors are downright rude and treat you like children instead of adults.Majority of the instructors do not know how to teach and the ones that do are somehow quit. Know for a fact that favortism which is the cause for good teachers to leave and they promote the ones who are not so good. Quite the contrary of the last program I was enrolled in previously. I do not plan to go back to this school as they have burnt bridges with me , including financial aid which you have to stay on top of because things are always changing and its some dishonesty there as well. See the past lawsuits and complaintsfrom students. I am happy I am done with the program and it gave me the chance to still work and go to school but that is all. The rest is just downhill. Would not recommend.Look into other programs."

"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!!"

"I currently had three associate's degrees from other colleges and decided to get my BSN through the University of Phoenix. The school makes it simple because they do all the leg work for you. They set up your classes and provide assistance if you need it. I graduated with my BSN last month and had an outstanding experience. I completed it in 16 months. This program requires the student to be independent and a self-motivator to complete it. I graduated with a 3.79 GPA and I am starting my masters program next month. I prefer online education so I can spend more time at home with my family and it works around my full time job. I would recommend an online program if you are a motivated individual otherwise I would say to go to class."

"I am currently enrolled in their rn to BSN program and the university of Phoenix lied to me to get me to enroll. I was told that all classes are 5 weeks long and there are no clinical hours required, and both were a lie. Some classes are 7 weeks long and 2 classes require 50 clinical hours and one requires 25 clinical hours. All of them cannot be performed where you currently work. Half of each class is group work so you have to depend on others for your grade. No one tells you that and most classes the group you are paired with is incompetent."

"This school is only interested in your money not you as a student. Student support is VERY poor. Once they have hounded you to sign up by telling you how great it is they leave you pretty much on your own. I was signed up for a second term and I contacted them to tell them I would not be attending I was still charged for 1 week of class, which I did not attend, and an E book that I never saw!"
Bullied robbed of education

"They seem to be after money. They don't care about the student, they bully and threaten. I don't understand how so many hateful people can be in charge of a caring and loving profession. I do not know of 1 student who can not wait to get away from that establisment. Students have to keep quiet about the bullying in fear of being dismissed with so much money and time already put in the program, to late to transfer. Try Regis they teach a real education."
