"UoPX was fantastic. Worked with me every step of the way. I was able to complete all my classes on time and with little struggle. Had all the resources I needed at my fingertips, no need to buy extra books or supplies! Loved the financial aid team and my personal academic advisor was a great help."

"DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL AT ALL! When I inquired about this school, they never stopped calling me. They gave me false promises and false hope! This school does NOT abide by reasonable rules that traditional (brick and mortar) schools operate by. They are not regulated by anyone and they pay off enough politicians to receive financial aid funds by the federal government!!! Not to mention, you never will get a REAL job with this school on your resume. Check our consumer reports for the NUMEROUS complaints against this school. Take my word for it...RUN LIKE HELL!!! Go to a school where they want you to succeed. This school's philosophy is: YOU DON'TGET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!! You get irritated, middle aged, bitter nursing administrators who take out their personal vendettas on students!!! NO OUTSIDE CREDITS ACCEPTED- Despite what I was promised, UoP doe not accept ANY outside school's credits. They will lie to you and say that they do to keep you registered in courses. NO STUDENT EVER WINS A GRADE DISPUTE- I received a grade just lower than I expected and the school refused to acknowledge this. The UoP does not provide students an advocate/representative or a FAIR opportunity for students to state their case. The UoP Nursing Department CLAIMS that they provide a fair opportunity, but they refuse to provide telephone numbers or emails for students to contact people who can help. Do not count on GINA DRAKE to give a darn about your issue. She, like the rest of the FOR PROFIT employees are driven by the all mighty dollar!!! The more they get to keep without giving a degree, the better for them. I think we all should BOYCOTT this school as it operates like a vigilante school with no oversight. NO STUDENT EVER WINS AN APPEAL- Enough said. Don't waste your time! Students must pay fees, but if you need a REAL person to state your case (like a student attorney), don't bother. EVEN if you have never had an issue before, this school can issue Code of Conduct charges left and right without any reason and if anyone submitted an accusation. It is really sad!!! INSTRUCTORS ARE MILITANT TYRANTS AND DO NOT HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO BE FAIR TO YOU- I did extremely well in this program until my VERY LAST course. I took NUR590B and missed the mark by approximately 10 points and had to retake the course. I took it again with the instructor (BEV JENSEN) who approved my practicum and she PURPOSEFULLY failed me. The instrucor is a TYRANT who refused to grade my final assignments that were all submitted on time. I even provided a letter from my practicum site and she refused to grade my assignment. The instructor knew that this was my second and FINAL chance in this course (as she DEMANDED this information at the start of the class). I believe she purposefully wanted to see me fail because the nursing administration backups these TYRANT teachers!"

"The impact that a MSN-Edu degree has had on my life is I am able to teach in nursing at a local college. I loved going to online classes at UOP. At first I was not used to online classes and it took me about 4 classes in to realize that I love the flexibility of online classes, I also loved only taking 1 class every 5 weeks unlike traditional college ground classes which are usually 3 or more courses over a 3 month period. This degree has enable me to teach nursing which I love my job. The only thing I would have done differently would be to attend online classes sooner."

"The University of Phoenix makes lots of promises to students only to get them in the door. After the student commits, the school is no longer interested in anything except MONEY! I was promised that I would not have to take certain classes again and they lied- it had to take both again (which extended my program by 12 weeks). IF you ever have an issue with your instructor, the school does not care and does NOT do a thing about it. You pretty much have to suck it up because they side with their instructors despite the instructor's incompetence and unwillingness to help. I will never attend an off-brand school ever again in my life. I made a 3.2 at the school; however, I will never take another course here and will encourage all my comrades to do the same. I will make sure the VA and military is aware of these practices too. My advice to an interested student is: RUN LIKE HELL!!! The graduation rate is poor and the attrition is also for a reason- UoP does NOT care about education for their only motivation is money! The only reason I pressed forward was because I needed it for my career. I am not bitter- I just know that there is a better way to reach students than that demonstrated at UoP.

"The educational experience was excellent. I had been out of school for 30 years, have a learning disability and UOP went far beyond what I expected in extra help. This is a school that cares about the student. All instructor surveys were private and if a student was dissatisfied with something, a confidential phone complaint was taken.Additionally, I would like to comment on the nursing instructors dress code. They were always dressed professionally. I highly recommend this school:)"
