Degree: DNP

STAY AWAY! Psychiatric DNP program is 100% trash. All "instruction" is self-taught. Material is outdated (modules that contain due dates from 2021, instructions that were clearly developed for previous cohorts because now they do it differently). Exam questions that are impossible to answer, Eg. "Antipsychotics target which neurotransmitter? A) Dopamine B) GABA C)Dopamine D) no text provided for this answer". There are far better programs out there. There is a reason that they have a high drop out... Read More

Degree: Nursing

The Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program was a disaster. The student does all the work and the program seems to work very hard at tearing it all down. They had little flexibility when it came to COVID. I had a 9 year old child as well as an 85 year old babysitter. Many programs allowed students to do online precepting. My clinical advisor wouldn't take the time to figure out if we could or couldn't so just told us not to. They also told us 100 of our hours could be made up via class room type... Read More

Overall USA has a good nursing program. Some of the instructors are great and really want to see you succeed. The school definitely has some policies that need to change compared to others. Do yourself a favor and research other schools first, talk to others that have gone to other schools, and ask about things including assignments and preceptor/clinical rotation placement. Some things at USA are ridiculous. The school has clinical affiliations that are no help. You still have to find your own preceptors.... Read More

Degree: RN to MSN

I attended South for my BSN and it was a great experience. The college of nursing was still located on Springhill when I graduated in 2004. I did not study for my NCLEX and had no difficulty passing the first time. When I started work I was much more prepared than other new nurses who went to other local colleges, except Springhill. It was a lot of work and it was hard but I'm glad I was at South. In 2017, I went back for my MSN, FNP online through South and had a really good experience. The writing... Read More

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)

Overall, my USA experience was very good. I'm sure my complaints would be common to many other most-online MSN programs. The online classes and the format of the online classes were easy to follow, some instructors more organized than others. The degree plan was a very good roadmap for graduation and I followed it to a "T". After graduation, no problem passing both Acute Care and Family boards, thanks to the preparation of USA MSN program. Will this program guide you through to be prepared to pass... Read More

Degree: Nursing

USA has in excellent online and on campus program. The program and staff prepare students to past the boards on the first try. I felt more than prepared for the NCLEX. I already had my RN, I was enrolled in BSN ONLINE program this was perfect for me.
