I would say I graduated from this school with a nursing degree, but the college is not organized at all. They are known to do underhand things such as grades, financial and favoritism. The school tries to push you into the program quickly while you're trying to decide weather it's the best choice for you. Ecpi will cancel your application then try to make you retake more prerequisites you do not need. Seek other nursing program before going here. Another reason I was indecisive, its way too too expensive.... Read More

HOT MESS HERE IN CHARLOTTE, NC!! All they care about is the $$$$$$$!!!!! The good professors get fired or leave and the ones remaining are buddies with the DON. They are mean and disrespectful to the students. They act like they are doing us a favor by teaching them. Go ANYWHERE else to get your degree. ECPI (and the DON) are disgraceful. I'm ashamed to say I was a student!

I don't understand why ecpi will not accept transfered classes from an accredited college if it is a B or C. This is not right when you can't even transfer ecpi classes anywhere. There were so many things that I didn't like . The teachers would lie. They nned to just reove everyone that is over nursing and strat over.

This school is a hot mess! Let me start from the beginning. First, the director of nursing is not helpful at all. You come to her as an adult and she takes it as you are complaining. She will belittle you and make it seem like you don't know what you are talking about. If she is suppose to be the director why is she not directing? She shows no leadership skills at all. Every time you advocate for yourself, they take that as a "complaint." In all reality, this is my time and money being invested and... Read More

This school is a joke!!! DO NOT waste your time or your money. They make everything look like sunshine and rainbows during the enrollment process and then change everything! You never get a response when you question anything. Certain faculty members talk to you like you are beneath them. The technical support is a joke!!! The all around support that you receive from the school is a joke!!! There are very few educators that know what to teach and how to teach. The worst part of the program is that... Read More

Initially I was in the RN program. Failed nursing psych with a 79.1, had to sit out for a month or so and retook the class and passed with a high B. Failed med surge 1 with a 76 had to sit out for 2-3 months and retook it and got an A. Failed acute care with a 78, no retakes, had a board meeting with my husband who was active duty military, no one cared that he was on deployment and I was taking care of my baby while going to school. No one cared that had I been able to turn in my 1st week of class... Read More

Not only is this school more expensive than other schools, they set you up to fail. You still have to pay money even if you fail after one term, in which you will have to wait a whole year to retake. They don’t offer classes while waiting. I wish I would’ve listened to reviews before going. They offer day classes every month, but night classes you would have to wait a year if they have a sit for you. Advisors and teachers don’t care, they say they will help you but they don’t. RUN, DONT GO HERE.... Read More

This college is horrible. They fail students on purpose to get that extra money. They do not keep your information update to tuition options so when you set out or fail a class you still paying money. A 14 month program will end up for me 2 years and 5 months. I'm looking into other college that's closer to me rather than an hour away. I will not or recommend this college. The instructors do not know how to teach. They put teachers in a class they have not taught before and as they told us we were... Read More

I still attend this school and I love it. I feel like my advisor and the faculty care. This is an accelerated program. You have 5 weeks for each course. Memorization is required for some material, but it will be hard if you do not Understand the material and make connections with real world things. Its the same at any school you go to. Every college I've went to has told students to do outside research to make connections. The grading standards are high. Do you want a nurse caring for you or a loved... Read More

Ecpi say almost anything to get you enrolled in their programs. They say they work with their students to achieve success. Lies. They say they work with your schedule and understands the obstacles some may have in acquiring an education..lies. this school is money driven. They lie about their student graduation rates. I personally witnessed a graduation ceremony for one passing nursing student for the 16 months enrollment..I feel they should be investigated by the education Dept. Students can't transfer...

I am writing this review to help those looking to further their education. Please look at going to a different school. They are highly unorganized and unprofessional in many aspects. You pay 4-5 times more than you would somewhere else. The directors do not have the students best interest in their job description and do not care about any of the students. Most of the teachers are amateurs and unqualified, meaning they have no business fulfilling a position as a teacher. *** Their credits do not transfer... Read More

The acceleration of the courses are unbelievable. No nurse should take two Pharmacology classes ina 10 weeks period that covers close to 30 chapters. I made it through half of the course and didnt feel like a I learned a single thing. Biggest waste of my GI Bill money yet because theres not a single college that accepts credits from such an accelerated program. Not only that, but people who have graduated cant find any jobs or atleast hold one for very long. You get taught everything you need to... Read More

I'll be as concise as I possibly can be. I have to have a 250 character minimum, so I'm just going to drag this out a little bit. The thing you should know about ECPI is, they're absolutely expensive! I went for the PRN (practical nursing degree) in Charlotte, NC. I attend half of the program. I received the maximum amount of financial aide (Pell Grant), and even after taking every single bit of that, I was still left owing $10,000. That's not even for the full course! I suggest sucking it up and... Read More

I went here for three weeks, and I thought everything was great. I was learning new things, I was studying hard, and even made all A's in my first three classes. I was happy with the whole experience, minus a coupe of small things such as an instructor not showing up on the first day of class, and the fact that I was there for three week and never got my scrubs. I thought all was well. I hopped online to look at their reviews for the RN program since I was considering switching over to it, and I... Read More
