Student Ratings

Academics Rating

The program size is too large and they are unable to accommodate the size with adequate placements. The information is out of date and repetitive. The administration is horrific and unresponsive. They lose paperwork and can ultimately cost you a position.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2008

Academics Rating

I completed the Entry to Practice Program at the School of Nursing which got me a bachelor's and master's in nursing (Pediatric Nurse Practitioner) in 2 years and 8 months. It was a lot to pack into a short period of time. The first year was incredibly tough and exhausting because in a sense, it's as if you're professors are teaching you a new language and asking you to perform your work in a foreign language. But once the fundamentals of nursing were understood and accomplished (RN) and I moved onto my specialty curriculum for pediatrics for the master's portion (NP), it was definitely more gratifying.
