I was a student here and finished my degree in 2022. While the instructors and education were decent, please be mindful of financial aid. I am a veteran and submitted my DD214 to receive the veteran discount and in the beginning, they said everything looked good. Then the last month of my degree, all of the sudden there was something wrong with my DD214 (wrong copy). So I provided that copy, then all was good. Then the last week of school, I get a call that they cannot honor the veteran discount... Read More

WCU is all about money. They charge $599 PER credit for GenEd & then $799 PER credit for the Core Nursing classes. Mind you most of the classes are 2-3 credit classes so you are paying around $1200+ for just ONE class. I had a lot of aid given to me by FAFSA both loans & grants & I still wasn't able to pay my tuition. They only give you grants if you apply for private loans you literally HAVE to apply & if you get it you have to use it or its not considered exhausting all your options (which is the... Read More

They are truly unprofessional and really don’t care about students. I would make this my last opinion. For the price of what you pay, you should see more professionalism and quality of your education. I know other school may be harder to get into but I still think well worth looking in to.

This university is all about the money and not about the success of their students. They picture rainbows and sunshine during your walking tour and trying to convince you to attend there. In reality though all they see all the dollar signs and how much they can suck out of you. I’m a mother of two and even quit my job to focus strictly on school. Yet as most parents know certain life challenges happen that are out of your control. I passed all my pre reqs and made it into the nursing core program.... Read More

West coast university sounds fantastic when you go in for your tour. They offer everything that you could possible need to pass their courses. The truth is, the nicest department is the financial aid department. You do not get the customer service or quality education you deserve for the money you pay. Staff is passive aggressive, they do not work with you. The program gives you a RIDICULOUS amount of busy unnecessary work that you do not have actual time to study the material for the tests that...

(Disclaimer: I did not graduate from this school. It was added for requirement purposes) I left and went to another school. If this school doesn't care about you as a student then how can it teach you how to care about patients as people. This impersonal school will train you to be an impersonal nurse. Now you can say, "I'd rather be an impersonal nurse with good nursing skills than a personal nurse with bad nursing skills." Let me tell you, their classes are so easy that the reason I left to another... Read More

I highly recommend the online MPH program. I had a full time job and studied full time. Thankfully, being online I was able to study and do course work on my time. The professors were all very helpful. Registration was easy being that it was done for me. The education was able to get me where I needed to be and I never had an issue while attending.

So I realized Ive always wanted to be a nurse practitioner even before I graduated the registered nursing program but didnt have my year experience yet. I was conviced to complete with the MSN while I wait to complete my first year so I pretty much had no break since nursing school. The whole point of me going to this school was so I can attend the nurse practitioner program and I was convinced it would be a smooth transition for me as long as I keep my gpa up and I was informed they give exceptions...
