TERRIBLE!TERRIBLE!TERRIBLE! I am attending Abington campus,AverageNursing
TERRIBLE!TERRIBLE!TERRIBLE! I am attending Abington campus, and it has been the worse decision of my life!This is going to be lengthy because I am extremely unsatisfied, to say the least. Straight away, the school is extremely disorganized, professors don't know what they are doing, poor communication between the staff/students, the students are never informed of the changed in the schedule and professors somehow expect us to know about them. Most of the professors are very incompetent, unprofessional, and no help at all. After their lectures I usually went home and retaught everything to myself. We have spent almost two years in the same two tiny classrooms, no extracurricular activities, and no fun events- all we get are emails from Center City. Being in the Center City a few times, I was able to compare it to Abington campus and we nearly do not get even a third of the things, but we do pay the same amount for tuition, which is roughly $40k a year. The campus is dirty, old, everything is extremely outdated.I feel like I got zero knowledge, except for what I taught myself.Students get no resources and no help from anyone, unless we figure out ourselves. You also have to figure out your FAFSA because their department is no help at all. Once, they had dropped all my classes because I miscalculated and have not paid $500. This shows that all this school cares about is money, not their student and their success, but money and expanding their name by buying more hospitals. Please, if you want to save your money, and nerves- FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL!! What I had wrote above has been very sugarcoated because I cannot find the write words to describe my dissatisfaction. DO NOT GO HERE!

This was the worst experience I?ve had atQuite BrightNursing
This was the worst experience I?ve had at any academic institution. The professors and program director were unaware of the changes made to their academic schedule before the program started. It was completely down hill from there. The institution was at fault for MULTIPLE mistakes which led the students to have to pay more money countless times. The institution would not comment on any of these mistakes besides blaming us.

Another FACT-1 student here.Nursing
Another FACT-1 student here. This is the absolute worst nursing program you can choose. THE WORST. Everyone from the administration to the staff and faculty in the college of nursing is beyond incompetent. No one cares about your personal success - for them, you are just one of the 100+ students in the classroom. Majority of the professors can't teach and some are blatantly incompetent about the material they are given to teach. They teach you outdated or wrong information. They are unprofessional. The curriculum/program is unorganized and purely chaotic. They do not prepare you adequately for the NCLEX or the real world. I would not recommend this program to anyone. Actually, I beg you to not go there.
