HereSeriously, it's not even news when someone gets shot (like, by a gun, and goes to a hospital) a couple blocks off campus, the faculty generally don't give a shit (even the ones who are in the goddamn social work department just put on a fake smile and hand you your grades), the cost is astronomical, and there isn't shit to do. If this is your only option for university, then find something else to do, because it's not worth it even as a last option.
Dean is bogged down with irrelevant politics, andJun 17 2015Education
Dean is bogged down with irrelevant politics, and will get you, especially if you're from Muslim Arab background. Besides, ELLs' grades are primary and skill performance is secondary (it's a cut-throat for every lost point). Dean and faculty and before them your advisor will manipulate your grades and expose you to guiding malpractice to dismiss you when they want. I was abused and misused head like if I were their foe not their one of the most exemplary and hard working student.
Widener University has one of the best certifiedMar 10 2008Nursing
Widener University has one of the best certified school nurse programs in the Philadelphia area, I know as I looked at all of them within a 15 mile radius of the city of Philadelphia prior to enrolling.

This University provides a readily accessible certified school nurse program, especially for the full-time working health care professional. The content was well-focused, timely, and extremely helpful in performing the role of a PA or NJ School Nurse in 2005. The faculty are extraordinarily knowledgable, helpful, and accessible via the campus intranet website.

My only wish would be that the Master's in Nursing curricula was so readily available to full-time health care professionals. Most employers would not be willing to give employees two mornings, or afternoons, off per week for collegiate courses. The lack of flexibility with the MSN courses has made the pursuit of an advanced degree close to impossible to achieve at this university. Perhaps this is any area the faculty will address in the future, and schedule a lot of the MSN programs similarly to the Graduate Business courses.

generally speaking the school is lousy in every aspect. I would never attend this university if I could do it all over again!!!
"feel like wasting yourOct 28 2005Business - Management and Administration
"feel like wasting your life and money,come to us"...this should be the real slogan for this messy university.who in the world created it??they should have left it a military college(atleast of some use).its location is real bad.never carry more than a dollar in ur pocket.hehe.
The school of Social Work systemically promotes sexualApr 30 2003Social Work
The school of Social Work systemically promotes sexual discrimination against male students and agism against older students, as the program is built around the advancement of unskilled, immature, and purportedly charming females. The Deans office tends to perceive such females as being in need of nurturing due to an arguable oppression against females and thus such students are to be coddled and carried through the program, at the indifference or discrimination against more mature (particularly male) students who possess more skill and knowledge.
