BEWARE!!!! The PhD prerequisite coursework was easy with much student and instructor guidance on a weekly basis. However...Be Aware and Be Prepared for the PhD dissertation process. It takes forever, costs a fortune, and you are on your own with very little guidance. The university estimates (4) quarters to write/complete the entire dissertation. Each quarter costs approximately $3000. It will really take about 8 quarters. So, $24,000 just to write the dissertation. The Chair takes 5 weeks to give... Read More

Walden has numerous great resources. Responsive faculty that provide detailed feedback. Affordable. Flexible. Rigorous and honest grading practices. Travel for residencies required. The residency time provides face-to-face time to grow connections. I am very pleased with my choice in attending Walden University.

Don't talk back! If an instructor is rude on the blackboard you had better ignore it because if not - they will screw you over like there is no tomorrow. They wasted my student loans. The instructor involved twisted the truth as far as she could. I was in my fourth class. I had completed three and received A's in all of them. And then this instructor entered stage left and just started tearing me apart. Twisting the truth to suit her. I reached out for help and the more I did the worse the problems... Read More

The DNP Nursing Program at Walden University is a NIGHTMARE. The school of nursing is unorganized, unstructured, and lacks ethics.

Here's my experience with the school. Walden University is not recognized and often you cannot find a practicum site. The Chair advisors do not respond in a timely... Read More

Walden's Doctor or Nursing Practice Program (DNP). Walden University advertise that the DNP project is completed within the following courses: NURS 8410, NURS 8400, NURS 8500, and NURS 8510. This is not true !!!! After you finish NURS 8510 Walden will have you enrolling in 8701 for at least an additional year or more; be prepared to pay Walden University and additional 15,000 to 20,000 dollars after Nursing 8510 . The Attorney General at the United States Department of Justice needs to do something... Read More

The DNP program is very structured, as with any completion program (i.e BSN, MSN) discussion threads and assignments were useful. As nurses we already have a solid foundation in nursing, we already know how to write papers, & projects using APA format, so getting through the core class was a breeze. The problem starts when you are finish with all of the course work and trying to finish your DNP project, they run you through course 8701 at least 4 times. No course work just trying to get your manuscript... Read More
