This is worst ABSN Program in the whole world. They are all about stealing your money. They make you run errands and waste all your time in this program. Almost all their faculty lack real world nursing experience and are completely out of touch with real world nursing. You should not be teaching core class unless you have experience as a hospital/clinic/nursing home unit nurse for at least 10 years. This faculty here just don't have it as many have not even worked full time on a unit for 5 years.... Read More

Tabaka is so controlling. Same thing with Brooke Piper (just became MSN coordinator). They are running the ABSN program at Oakbrook to make money for the school and do not care about the students. Run from this school as they have no religious believes. They are trying to rob students of their money

I can testify to the fact that all the comments below are true about the ABSN nursing program in Oakbrook. Please read them thoroughly before taking the risk to enroll in this program. I graduated in Summer 2017 after bouncing through many hoops the school throws at students here. Someone below posted about a student in my cohort, Joee, getting arrested after a court order was filed against him by a Professor who went after him by making up an academic integrity claim. I know him personally and heard... Read More

Olivet Nursing ABSN Program is akin to the burning cross they have in their University logo. They want students to burn and die at this school and only interested in their money. Staff are faculty are unsupportive and always complaining about things rather than helping students. They will create reasons to get you out if they do not like you. A classmate in my cohort was kicked out of the ABSN program for a random reason and for complaining about a Professor here for unfair treatment. He is in ton... Read More

I just want to start off saying that I have graduated this program and have gone through all 4 levels of the ABSN program. Often times on these reviews, I notice that the students who are saying that it isn't bad have not gone through the program entirely. The first two semesters are the easiest, which should be taken with a grain of salt because it is still very challenging. However, once you get to level 3 there are specialized classes along with Adult health II and 3 clinical's in one semester.... Read More

I first attended Purdue in 2016 to acquire my RN-BSN degree, that was a fail due to the program lack of assistance and grading system. I transferred to Olivet and graduated in 2018. The program was easy to me, I was irritated with the lack of consistency with APA grading. I graduated with a 3.3 GPA, and that was with doing the minimum or you can say a lack of really trying. I wish schools offered the opportunity to take more than one class at a time, to accelerate the program. Yes, I do work full-time... Read More

Be careful with this school ! The admission office is a mess. I dropped a class because I was going through some personal issues, the office told me to stop any activities in the class, so I did, next thing I know they gave me a failing grand and disqualified me from the program, even though I sent all my paperwork not once but twice . I dont believe this is a Christian school bunch of liars

I graduated from ONU's ABSN program in Oak Brook, Illinois in the advertised 16 months, and I have what I think to be an honest and helpful review of the program for those who are wondering whether this program is meant for them. Cost: This program costs over $55,000 not including scrubs, books, and gas money. I put 35,000 miles on my car in the 16 months that I attended this program. Work load: The work load is INTENSE. I did school work and studied every single day of this program. I did NOT work... Read More

Going to olivet Nazarene University ABSN is a nightmare and worst mistake of my lifetime. They are not supportive of student needs. Professors are barely available to help you succeed. Many professors here full of ego. They think of themselves as above everyone and highly qualified when they have barely worked as floor nurses and do not have enough experience themselves to teach kids. These Professors here are nurses who couldn't stand the rigor of the life on the nursing floor, so they decided to... Read More

Looking back at how far I have made it, I wish I walked out the first day. The funny part is the very first day of orientation of level 1 a level 4 student told me and several peers that this program is complete trash. Staff and teachers literally could care less about you. There is absolutely no support and guidance from instructors once you hit level 3. If all the instructors were like the level 1 and 2 instructors then the class portion of the program would be great. Clinical situation is a hot... Read More
