Degree: Nursing

I am a disabled nurse who's attempting my master's degree to be able to show my children that they can push through life's adversities. I want to change and improve patient's lives by volunteering my experience to advocate for them. Unfortunately, in this program, you have to teach yourself. The assignments are graded late; if you didn't understand the assignment, you will be deducted for submitting another attempt. I am trying my best, but at 50, I do not know if the expense is worth it. Good luck... Read More

You take away what you brought into the program. At fifty years of age I decided I could no longer compete in acute hospital nursing. I came with a BSN, 30 year backgrounds in critical-emergency care, as well as medical-surgical, and telemetry nursing. My wife of 20 years was supportive of my ASD behaviors and desire to step back from night shift bedside nursing which interferes with our personal lives. I feel that I could have never qualified for the standard bricks-and-mortar educational structure... Read More

I received the masters degree in nursing at University of Phoenix. It was such a great learning experience. Everything they taught me, I was able to apply in real life. Like any school, if you put in the work- you will receive the knowledge. I am not sure why people are putting this college down. I work for a company that is a national giant and University of Phoenix is one of the few online colleges that my Company recognizes and provides reimbursement towards classes. The instructors did an amazing... Read More

I will begin by saying that enrollment was seamless. Financial advisement was always available and my counselor was attainable at all times (in the beginning). I found classes to be simple - not sure if it is because I never found school to be difficult or just because the courses were easy. Either way, they don't require too much brain power. I was forced, by personal reasons to take a break between my final Practicum I and Practicum II. I went into Practicum II with a 4.0. I lost points on a paper... Read More

I should have heeded the warnings of others who have studied at this "university". Every single step in the process of application, study, and follow up has been a complete and utter nightmare. You will have people calling you daily, and if you even mention that you aren't interested, they will quickly turn on you and be rude and disparaging. It boggles my mind that this "university" is still open. I think the icing on the cake of an absolutely horrific experience was finding out the instructor that... Read More

I was supposed to graduate in 2016 with my MSN, all I had left to graduate was my final practicum write up and an ethics class....when I moved to WA state, UOP told me that my degree was null and void (over 35000 later) since they do not have an agreement with the board of nursing to complete and offer an MSN; I cannot explain the anger, frustration and disgust I felt with this university who has promised me from the day I started my graduate degree that I can study and complete any degree anywhere,...

The University of Phoenix is not a good college to attend. The instructors are not supportive of students. They intentionally fail student. Have you have any issue with your classes, they will not resolve it, but they just want you to repeat the classes and take you money. Please do not go to this university. It is a disaster.

I am a Registered Nurse with Bachelors degree in Nursing. I did enroll and matriculated in University of Phoenix to earn a MSN degree in Nursing Education. The process of enrollment is seamless and federal financial aid is difficult due to a very low 14% student academic success rate in the University of Phoenix (, 2016). The enrollment advisor, financial advisor, and academic advisor are well-trained to draw interested student into a hole that the student would turn his lifetime decision... Read More

I thought this school would be a great choice... It is a diploma mill. I have wasted my time taking two classes. I received an A in both but would never recommend this school. They do nothing, I have no idea how they are CCNE accredited. You will do way more busy work and team lead joke projects that teach nothing... Then if you just went to a classroom. There has got to be better online schools for an MSN then this one.

UOPX .... is okay

I had a couple different problems with the University of Phoenix. Instructors could be demeaning or not available. I understand it is online, but it is "online" for students. Instructors should be available at all times, unless posted in their policy (i.e. the weekend or certain times off). THe financial account services and my individual financial advisor WERE awful. I have never been disrespected the way I was by my advisor L. She would demand I send things to her from FAFSA and the IRS, then when... Read More

After reading the complaint reviews I have to defend the University. Don't get me wrong I had my struggles but if it weren't for the education I received at UOP I wouldn't be where I am. People have to take responsibility for their actions and be proactive in their education process. Many review I read about how the university didn't tell them "xyz" what ever happen to educating yourself and doing research instead of displacing the blame to UOP? I received both my bachelor and both masters degree... Read More

I attended UOP but did not have to go through any of these issues. I enjoyed being a UOP because it provided me with a very flexible schedule. I received my Master's in Nursing Education and can say that my degree was recognized with a $10,000 increase in salary. Of course I am leaving my old job for this new opportunity. But it was all worth it. I paid my entire school from my pocket. No loans to pay back for that one. I chose not to take any loans and because of my previous undergraduate loans... Read More

UoPX was fantastic. Worked with me every step of the way. I was able to complete all my classes on time and with little struggle. Had all the resources I needed at my fingertips, no need to buy extra books or supplies! Loved the financial aid team and my personal academic advisor was a great help.

DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL AT ALL! When I inquired about this school, they never stopped calling me. They gave me false promises and false hope! This school does NOT abide by reasonable rules that traditional (brick and mortar) schools operate by. They are not regulated by anyone and they pay off enough politicians to receive financial aid funds by the federal government!!! Not to mention, you never will get a REAL job with this school on your resume. Check our consumer reports for the NUMEROUS complaints... Read More

The impact that a MSN-Edu degree has had on my life is I am able to teach in nursing at a local college. I loved going to online classes at UOP. At first I was not used to online classes and it took me about 4 classes in to realize that I love the flexibility of online classes, I also loved only taking 1 class every 5 weeks unlike traditional college ground classes which are usually 3 or more courses over a 3 month period. This degree has enable me to teach nursing which I love my job. The only thing... Read More

The University of Phoenix makes lots of promises to students only to get them in the door. After the student commits, the school is no longer interested in anything except MONEY! I was promised that I would not have to take certain classes again and they lied- it had to take both again (which extended my program by 12 weeks). IF you ever have an issue with your instructor, the school does not care and does NOT do a thing about it. You pretty much have to suck it up because they side with their instructors... Read More

The educational experience was excellent. I had been out of school for 30 years, have a learning disability and UOP went far beyond what I expected in extra help. This is a school that cares about the student. All instructor surveys were private and if a student was dissatisfied with something, a confidential phone complaint was taken.

Additionally, I would like to comment on the nursing instructors dress code. They were always dressed professionally.

I highly recommend this school:)
