I graduated from Utica college in 2015. The nursing program is just like any other program HARD. I missed out on a lot of things in college because I was studying. A lot of reviews are saying there was no support. I was always able to meet with my professors after class or office hours to help for clarification of anything. Cynthia test were extremely hard but looking back she helped me learn to critical think before I even became a nurse . I didn’t love Utica college but I will forever be thankful... Read More

Hi everyone, Please read my review (I wish I had read the reviews before taking admission. I am a current student of the ABSN program at Utica college in St. Pete campus in second semester. I will be very honest in my expression. I took admission into ABSN program with big promises of support from Utica admission representatives and it looked very good that I will be able to complete my bachelors degree in short time. But the reality is there is NO support offered at all by the teachers, administration.... Read More

I read the reviews, believed they weren't real, and continued with the process of enrolling. I urge you to please read my review before making final decisions. First, when I had to pay out of pocket, my expenses were black and white and I paid what I needed to. Whenever I got financial aid, an addition 1-2K were added to my bill. When I disputed my bill, I was told a class was not calculated correctly. Again, this miscalculation and addition to my tuition was added after I received financial aid... Read More

Review from a current student and RN manager: I am so beyond disappointed in Utica University . NOT a university for working parents or people with a busy lives ... seems like you need to know how to run a the bureaucratic side of a university in order to attend ... They have student success couches(ssc) who, as afar as I can tell, are only helpful if you want someone to pick out and register you for all your courses although they are at least nice people in that department. None of the departments... Read More

PLEASE read an honest review here. UTICA's ABSN program at first may seem great on paper because it is "fast, hybrid, and an ABSN". It appears as if you have the mentoring, guidance, resources, and anything else you may need to succeed...this is FALSE. I initially thought how wonderful - I enjoy teaching myself and learning on my own and did very well in my previous undergraduate degrees.....even with the negative reviews I thought well " I'm a 3.8 GPA student and was a pre-med, I can grind for a...

PLEASE READ ALL THESE REVIEWS!!!!!!!! I did not believe this school could be that horrible and unfortunately I ignored all the bad reviews. I wish I would have trusted the reviews and saved money. Everything posted is what I experienced in the program. They will do everything possible to make you repeat and take your money. This was a low budget experience. The quality of the school and in person lab is ridiculously below standard. The equipment is cheap and outdated materials will be provided. It... Read More

This is the biggest joke of a nursing school. They treat the students like absolute shit, do not offer ANY resources aside from the online ebook. Your exams will NEVER match the blueprints they offer to study. And they do not value the mental health of their students at all rather brush it off and say “that’s how nursing school it” Professors tell students “maybe you are not cut out for the program” rather than giving support when you reach out for additional help. The only lectures you got is the... Read More

Ok, I waited to write this post because this school exhausted me both mentally, emotionally, and financially. Disclaimer: Nursing is hard. You better be willing to put in the work but this school is something different. This is a joke of a nursing school. It is what you call a scam. Many people are hopeful about getting into nursing school after putting in the work with prerequisites and getting a bachelor's. It is also very saturated in my area specifically (also many people from long island are... Read More

I didn't believe other reviews before getting into this program. Everything is online. No one teach you in this program. Professor are horrible they don't even know some stuff from book. They get confuse with some type of questions. It is true Professor just read email and don't reply that often. Assignments are useless and books are online too.

I attended Utica College ABSN program in Syracuse. The only classes that were in person were the labs 1-2 days/week. Clinical rotations were also in person at local hospitals. As for the rest of the classes, they were quite literally “read pages 700-900 in the book by Friday.” There are no lectures and there is no one actually teaching the courses. There are resources like some videos and tutoring sessions, but a majority of the time these are not helpful. Some of the “videos” were teachers driving... Read More

This program is absolutely HORRIBLE! I spent almost $30,000 per semester to teach myself everything. The program follows a hybrid curriculum, yet there is NO actual content provided on the assigned chapters of study. Everything is self guided. No online lectures are provided, only a learning guide to correspond with the textbook. Course live session have been discontinued because students did not show up. Live sessions are recorded so that students can view them later. Otherwise, no aide or learning... Read More

This is the worst program I have ever attended in my life! There are NO lectures what so ever, it is COMPLETELY self taught! Yes they offer you "resources." The resources are youtube videos that are about that weeks topic. They are not even videos that they made, just random videos that they found. They give multiple chapters of reading per week, which is what the exams are based on, while requiring TONS of busy work to complete during the week, that usually has nothing to do with what you are going...

I go to UC for RN BSN (nursing) program and am currently in my third year and the program is challenging yet very high quality. My favorite part of it is the faculty and the proximity of medical centers. The faculty is willing to bend over backwards to help their students which is a huge benefit for me! The college is also surrounded my medical centers and hospitals where we can do our clinicals so there's no lengthy commute to get to clinical.

This ABSN program at Utica College is a very rigorous program however, it does an amazing job at preparing intelligent and empathetic nurses. Accelerated programs are not for everyone hence the mixed reviews. At this time the first graduating cohort from the Miramar campus has a 100% NCLEX pass rate. The school provides MANY resources and the professors are all extremely helpful. Every time I have reached out to my professors for assistance or clarification they answered within hours, sometimes within... Read More

Do not go to Utica College's Accelerated Nursing program if you have other options. Russell Sage in Troy is a better option, and they will transfer credits you have. Utica changes things every semester and is not a stable program. Wait and look around if you can't find the right thing now.

Let me start my saying this is an accelerated program, many complaints from fellow students are just frustrations, people who did not utilize ALL the resources provided. Our program directors advised us of the difficulty in the program, we were advised of the scheduling, and clinical hours. Faculty is available after class hours, but many of my cohort don't utilize the services provided. Professors have online review sessions, tutors are available and when used provide great insight and assistance... Read More

Honestly the worst school i have ever witnessed. Not only is it expensive but it is terrible education terrible instruction and the administrators are so bad. Honestly It functions like a third world nursing program nobody knows whats going on. In class we would sit for hours while the teachers ate lunch. I would not recommend this school at all.

Fraud, the first word that comes to mind. As far as the St. Pete accelerated BSN program, you are enticed to come here and assisted every step of the way during the admission process. Once you're in, it's a sham. Everyone in this program already has a bachelors degree and met the prereqs. and admissions standards to get in, yet the transfer, withdrawal, and failure rate of each cohort is very high. As them for those stats. If you are o.k. with teaching yourself, never interacting with any instructors,... Read More

Okay, first let me start off by saying I NEVER in my life gave a bad review. I'm the type of person who notices I overpaid at the store, and I'd rather go home than deal with the fuss, just to give you an idea. With that said, I went into this program very optimistic, ready to prove all of the bad reviews wrong..boy, was I in for a surprise! This program has been nothing short of a nightmare from the start. Overpriced, understaffed, NO resources, there isn't even a success coach at the St. Pete site.... Read More
