“I feel like Adelphi University is too local.Quite BrightNursing
I feel like Adelphi University is too local. Majority of students are from long island, and consequently, commuters. This makes school quite empty during weekends and breaks. There is barely a school spirit. But it all depend on who you hang out with- there are super friendly/nice/caring people, too. Since the school is not big, you can talk to faculties/staff pretty easily. No need to rush--you could go anywhere on campus in 5 minutes! You have more time for yourself.
“I am 100% just a number at thisQuite BrightNursing
I am 100% just a number at this school within the nursing program. I am an older student so feel as though I have a different perspective then some students who attend Adelphi. The school DOES NOT at all support students or back them up. In clinical rotations it is every man for them self. It is very commonplace to have an instructor in clinical who has never taught before or is new to Adelphi in general. This truly impedes learning, especially when it means the most in rotations. There are a ton of rules on what we can and cannot do. We are not even allowed to give finger-sticks for blood sugar in clinical. I am now a senior and am still (although very important to pt care) giving vitals and doing bed baths. They do not care about your experiences there as a student and only care about getting you out of the school and graduated. I am not speaking about the school negatively to gain anything I really just want future students to know what they are getting themselves into when attending this school. There are also lots of hidden fees and additional costs, about $2000.00 worth to be approximate. The tuition is also very expensive, even with a scholarship and assistance.
There is alot to be said for Adelphi, especially if you want to be a nurse. Socially, you better stay in touch with your friends from high school because this is the ultimate commuter school. There is little school spirit and most students are negative about the school, education, the administration. There are allmost no boys on campus which makes it a bad place to meet people I like it cause nursing is pretty easy and i grew up down the road.
