"This has been the most horrible and ridiculous experience. Walden has messed everything up from my financial aid, registering for classes, practicum accounts. etc Forget about making one phone call to try to correct the situation. This only leads to unanswered questions, or that dept can address your concern and will forward your concern to another dept, in which you never get a phone. call. Professors are horrible about responding to emails. Assignments are mundane and does not teach you how to practice as a nurse practitioner. Every semester has been one nightmare after the next, but unfortunately I am in the same boat as many of you. I am too invested in the program to start over some where else. I am not proud of the school and will not be proud of the institution name my degree with display. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE!"

"So, I have 15 years of experience as a nurse, which is proving much more important than the material I've been digesting.This program is open to anyone who can afford (and maybe not afford) it. I'm finding that my colleagues in the 'real world' roll their eyes when I tell them where I 'attend'. It's almost embarrassing. Not so much because of the program, but more because of the 'quality' of students enrolled. There are 4 other walden FNP students I know of at my place of employment. I wouldn't let them make healthcare decisions for me. I have too much money invested in the program to simply quit and start somewhere else. When I graduate (God willing) I don't know if I will display my degree at my office. Which sort of makes me sad..."

"Terrible, redundant topics beaten to death, I learned 1000 ways of saying one thing or describing one topic , no complaints responded to, policies followed , or proper handling of anything. Not recommended for serious students desiring an actual education. Diploma mill? For profit...greedy."
