I have completed my first full year hereNot so brightNursing
I have completed my first full year here at the Boston campus and I wish I went somewhere else. The school is very cheap when it comes to their resources and staff. Often bathrooms and printers are out of service and the elevators have a lot of issues. The program itself is on probation due to the Nursing students not being able to pass their boards successfully, and for 45,000 a year, i expect a wonderful education and have yet to receive it. I have many teachers who just lecture you, are extremely unavailable, often arrogant and assuming we have already had background information. My academic counselor is often too busy to see me and never returns my emails. Overall, the school is not worth the money or the time and I strongly urge anyone who is going to apply to look elsewhere. It is a small college, clicky and expensive, and its not worth your time or money.

I am now a second-year nursing student atQuite BrightNursing
I am now a second-year nursing student at MCPHS Boston and am writing this review to caution everyone from staying away from this program. This program is in jeopardy of losing its accreditation due to the fact that its curriculum is absolute trash. Before enrolling, I read many reviews stating almost all "good" faculty left, which I now believe, because it seems all that's left are professors who zoom through 100 slides in an hour simply narrating and offer incredibly limited further explanation. I understand it's college, but I'd never expected a school with such inaccessible resources, careless professors and poor ability to create a college environment. Campus life is absolutely non-existent, the dining halls are infested with mice and, best part, financial aid is a joke. Making Dean's List every semester, this school hasn't increased my financial aid, not even slightly for the coming year, keeping it at a solid $2,000 a semester despite maintaining a 4.1 GPA in high school as well. They're greedy for money and won't look back at the students who fail out. So, if enrolling, be ready to take out loans and have massive debt upon graduation. I would not recommend this school to any student.

Don't go to this program.Quite BrightNursing
Don't go to this program. I just finished the first semester in the Accelerated BS nursing program in Manchester, NH. The program is in a tail spin and crashing. It lost all of the best faculty who left mid semester (that tells you a lot right there). I cannot recommend the program. The remaining professors are angry and are going through the motions of teaching, they show up read off 100 power point slides then leave you to your own devices to study. 25% of our class failed and most were top students at their previous schools. You have no recourse. If you are a minority expect to get even worse treatment..... open harassment by some faculty. I don;t see how this program can keep it's accreditation and doubt it will. If you are planning to go here, I would recommend looking at another program, since so many fail, most likely will take 2 years anyway, so why not take longer, learn in a better school and pay less money? I wish I had!
