West Coast University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
I feel like the school delivered what they promised. I got to graduate with my BSN extremely fast. The program was not perfect. My main complains were towards school administration not necessarily the program or teachers. With the exception of two teachers (in 3 years), all my other teachers were amazing and really cared for the students' success. I still keep in contact with some of my teachers, many of them wrote me letters of recommendations and some of them are actively helping me find a job.
The school does exactly what they say they'll do. If you are accepted into the program, and study hard, you will graduate in the time frame they provide for you. I attended the North Hollywood campus, where you will find only a handful of teachers who are there to shape you into a great nurse. You will notice that the Deans are there only to make money, and have no real care in helping you succeed, but if you reach out to the right teaching staff, you will have no problems in navigating and being successful in the program.
DO NOT attend this school. All they are is money hungry, they will raise tuition without warning and they LOVE to fail students and dismiss them out of the program. Although that has not happened to me yet, I believe the curriculum is set up poorly. You really need to teach yourself
WCU really opened up the idea of thinking outside the box through alternative ways to treat a patient, especially with the interactive Interprofessionals Day. By learning about other healthcare members, I could work towards helping my patient in their overall health. Because of the cost, however, I do wish there were other opportunities with financial aid. I also wished there was less peer-teaching, but had more professor-led lectures. Professors were experienced and used creative ways to help instill concepts for study.
West Coast University is an accelerated school in which you finish in 36 months. It is very fast paced. The instructors are very helpful and there are many resources available to you. The Ontario campus is clean and organized which makes for a better learning experience.
Dear future student, West Coast helps with accelerated learning and advancement. You will deal with a lot during your tenure at West Coast, but you will reap the benefits of actual hands on training that will prepare you for the medical world. The teachers and instructors will test you on real-life situations and teach you how to act on instant. Good luck!
