"This is an amazing program and an amazing opportunity for everyone. It is do-able and nursing is very hard and I will forever say nursing is a hard major but if you buckle down and not let the small stuff get in the way, then you can do it. It's funny how these people who do not pass are posting negative reviews. If you truly want to be a part of this program then talk to recent grads or the people that hire them."

"This program is built on a glass foundation. They are great at suckering you in, but they just want your money. There is no student support, you're left to fart in the wind about what's tested, and there are always conditions too pass the course, not just getting a passing grade. The student success coach is not a nurse so she cant help at all. There's really no organization in place, and the teachers are not helpful. Go too a better run program."

"If you have any self respect you will not do this program. I am currently a second semester student and honestly believe I am being set up to fail my classes and retake them so the program can get more money to build their new campus. The current campus is literally an office building. Every test we have taken this semester has not correlated with material we are told to study. We are essentially teaching ourselves everything without any guidance from the staff. Basically, we are paying $55,000 for a glorified self study, we do not even have academic counselors who contact us when we fail. Please DO NOT do this program, look literally anywhere else and save your money."

"Although this school is not for the faint of heart, it is a hybrid progressive and rigorous program. You have lab which includes lecture and Hands-On skills in an actual lab setting as well as multiple clinical and additional study / review sessions if requested. To get a four-year degree in 16 months requires a lot of work on the part of the student but the faculty that is currently in place as of January 2019 is more than fair and really make every effort for the student to be successful. Most of the classes are online and it's the students responsibility to contact their didactic Professor with any issues for misunderstandings. I had a positive experience with everything from admissions to my actual NCLEX. I was well prepared and passed on the first attempt."

"Stay away from here. Do not believe a single positive review. It's a lot of money to teach yourself. More people are struggling day in and day out in this program. I feel like people make friends just to convince themselves that they're in a decent situation. It is BEYOND terrible... a) I was told I didn't have to retake certain classes, that I aced at my previous school and b) nobody sent out a school checklist before I drove from NY to FL. I felt unprepared every exam. I'm not a person that fails exams, but they're OK with you getting C's on everything. I'm also not a C student. Professors are nice but couldn't care less if you passed something. Most don't even watch you on your competencies. Also, why did we learn a NP type head-to-toe when most of us are hoping to focus on ER/ICU/Critical care? NOT FAMILY PRACTICE! Ugh! If I could give this school NO STARS, I would."

"I am currently in this program and this is the worst decision Ive ever made in my life and as at now, Im just trying to get through because of the money Ive already invested but this program is the worst. This program gives students no support or whatever and youre basically left on your own . The director of this program barely responds to students emails about their concerns. They just give you text books for every class and you get assigned chapters every week to read and write exams and quizzes. Theres no professors on site to help explain things to you if you cant understand something. All the professors are in other states in the first place and only means to have a talk with a professor is through emails which some of them dont reply. The admission counselors lie to incoming students about the program, they just want peoples money. Save yourself from wasting money and time , and look elsewhere where youll get the good experience you need as a nursing student."

"This program is literally one of the worst programs I've ever attended and they could care less that this is anyone's opinion. The school is majority online, the admissions reps will tell you there's a lab class where you get to interact more with your teachers and peers, but they set up lab to simply fulfil the lab requirements of this degree not because they have professors who are actually passionate about teaching or helping you through your journey of becoming a nurse. For the most part, you're entirely left to fend for yourself. This school is so bad that in a cohort of 70 people only 2 people passed 1 an exam and when students complained they were told this school is not big enough to educate all the students that come here and that everyone isn't meant to be a nurse. So, in other words, they make exams to slowly ween people out of the program. I'm just so disgusted with some the faculty in this school that I felt compelled to write a review. Of course, I understand some people have to come here and you gotta do what you can to become a nurse but if you truly have options for nursing schools, please mark this one out of it."

"Terrible place please run!!! they accept people without a Bachelor degree in Florida, some do not have any degree. They tell you that they are not responsible to teach anything. Some classes are taken without a book. Lab instructors do not teach anything but gossip about family and diet. Grades were being changes on the exam i could go on but that would take all day!! Save your money go the regular route or choose another school!!!"

"This review is for the ABSN program . Best advice - LOOK ELSEWHERE !!!!!! . On the start of the program they make everything easy and polite until your locked in . You will receive no help whatsoever . If you insist you have no choice but to go with this school just be careful and do everything you can not to need faculty help . A disaster"

"If you are interested in the Utica College accelerated program (ABSN), look somewhere else. The dropout rate for this program is unbelievable. I have seen first hand as a student that the administrators of the program are miserable people who do things to benefit themselves and not the students. It is a money making business and they don't care about the success of students. They start each semester with many students but the number of those who actually graduate is far smaller. It is a teach yourself type of program. Everything is online except clinical and a once a week lab. I now value education in a classroom setting far more than an online course, especially for a nursing program. Save your money. There are many other programs that will better prepare you for a future as a nurse."
