I selected Kean's online RN-to-BSN program program forNot so brightNursing
I selected Kean's online RN-to-BSN program program for several reasons. I wanted the opportunity to earn this degree regardless of where I moved to and I had found good reviews about Kean as a school. It was not until after being accepted and completing A YEAR of courses that I was told that some of the nursing courses are not online and I have to take them in NJ. I had already moved three hundred miles away at this point and invested over ten thousand dollars in classes that would most likely not be transferable to another school. No where on the website did it state that the program is not completely online and I was never told that in any way by any one that I spoke with. This is beyond frustrating. Also, the program is so new that a lot of the courses that you need for the degree are not offered online through Kean so you need to take them with a community college that they will accept the credits from. This is particularly difficult when you do not live in the state. And for the courses that are offered online a lot of the professors still have no idea how to manage the system. Then to add to this, the online nursing program is so limited that they only offer courses during specific times of the year. (Something else I had never been told and found out for myself when registering). So my graduation date is being pushed a YEAR because they just do not offer courses throughout all semesters. And when I do take those classes I will be paying out of pocket because I will have to take one class at a time because of the way that they schedule them?!?!?!?!?! To top it off the advisor for this program has no idea what is going on. She does not understand the dates in which classes are offered. She does not fully understand that the classes we need that are not offered through Kean need to be taken with a community college. And there is just so much more to advising online students that she needs explained to her. It is difficult to explain information to a person that is supposed to be providing you the information to begin with. Ugh, do not go here. There are so many other options for online nursing schools. I should have gone with another. Avoid making the mistake I made.

Kean Sucks.Not so brightBiology
Kean Sucks. The worst university in the country. It is run by the most incompetent people. From the president to the students, everyone is terrible!
