I?m in the accelerated post-bac nursing program andBrightNursing
I?m in the accelerated post-bac nursing program and it is TERRIBLE. The program is not difficult but there is no communication between the staff and students to the point that exams and schedules will change the day before. When you seek out help, many of the professors are condescending. There are definitely some good professors and the lab simulation director is great, but overall it has been disappointing, especially with the cost of the program. The biggest problem is honestly the Dean of the nursing school. She taught a course and we did not receive grades until the last week of the semester. She constantly changes important parts of the program and does not communicate those changes to the students. Often times her emails are aggressive and she treats the students like children, even though the majority of us are 25 or older. If accelerated programs allowed transfers, this program would have few students left.

Everyday I wish I had chosen a differentBrightNursing
Everyday I wish I had chosen a different nursing program. I am in the accelerated post-bac nursing program and it is a mess. There is little communication between faculty and students and the faculty is never on the same page. We are constantly given contradictory information and then the blame is somehow put on the students. The lecture professors so far have been condescending and they do not teach- they read their slides. If it weren't for the program using ATI, I would feel totally unprepared for the NCLEX. Things they don't tell you until it's too late: You WILL have weekend clinical or labs, which is good to know for childcare or scheduling purposes. You CANNOT miss a clinical unless you are in the hospital - if you are not excused then you fail the class. You will not know your true schedule until the week the semester starts, so plan for that if you are also working.

This school has been a hassle ever sinceQuite BrightPreMed and Medical
This school has been a hassle ever since I got accepted. Money is a bit of an issue and has been throughout my entire experience here. It does not matter how much you do for the school or how much you work academically, if you are late for a payment they are breathing down your back. They will harass you with emails and phone calls. Put you behind in school by shutting off your blackboard account, charge you additional fees and threaten to un-enroll you.They do not help you academically at all. They have mean staff as well as mean fellow students. They are rude to commuters and to upperclassmen. If you live from out of state you will be overpaying on rent in Boston if you do not commute. Labs get out very late and they will not easily allow you to change them. Classes fill up quick and they are rude if you ask to change anything. I am actually sad to say that I am graduating from this university and consider it to be one of the worst financial decisions and one of the worst life decisions I have ever made. RUN from this school if you can. 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND.
