Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Overall, I was pleased with UOP until I had to finish a teaching practicum class. I had already taught for five years in the public school system and felt this class was unnecessary. I found myself working for the public school system for free and knowing more than the teacher's who were suppose to help me. However, the teachers did a wonderful job giving appropriate assignments and helping find resources to complete tasks given.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Having the opportunity to begin the process for graduate school courses at the end of my BSN program with the University of Phoenix, I completed one nursing graduate course and one informatics course and found that I had a change of heart. In lieu of the fact that healthcare trends require quality and safety in the use of electronic health records, I feel my experience as an RN in practice for 33 years have much to offer my profession regarding informatics My Education with the Uniiversity of Phoenix in the last 2 and 1/2 years has offered me only the finest quality in each of the categories listed above and with out a doubt will continue this quality in my MSN process. Education is a 50/50 balance of both the Professor and student effort, especially in adult learning programs. I have learned throughout my education process that my grades reflect my effort and that professional fairness in unforeseen life circumstances has always been considered by my Professors. All Professors have allowed my autonomy to flourish and is the part of my educational experience that fosters my need and desire to further my education.

The pros of the graduate program I chose at University of Phoenix are many. One of them is the fact it is offered online. That makes it so much easier to juggle work, family, and school. Another pro is all the services they offer to help be a successful as a student. The best one is the fact they offer career services to help you, and guide you toward your career goal. Their are not many cons to the program i chose. If i had to chose a con it would be the over all cost. But as they say, you can not put a price on a good education. Due to having such a large family, I am a motivated to successfully complete my graduate program; so that I may resume in a higher career that is able to support my family.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Phoenix offers an online MSN program with a focus in team projects. I gain the experience of working with others at varying levels of experience in healthcare organizations while learning core values of an advanced practice nurse. I have had great academic and financial support from advisors and have transitioned to online education after being out of academia for over 15 years!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel this grad program is great. It gives me the opportunity to continue to work and spend time with my family without me having to be in a scheduled class at certain hours. I would choose no other program. Most schools require you to have a degree and a subspeciality in nursing but this program does not and that is why I chose this program. Cons are not knowing what type of teachers or other classmates you are going to encounter. Not knowing if the teacher is going to be helpful or if the other classmates are going to pull their weight in the workload.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The program has allowed me to achieve my personal and professional goals. The two cons of this program is that it is very costly which most graduate programs in America are and the accessibility to some of the instructors as they are not full time staff of the University.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

The biggest weakness of attending an online school is the inability to properly socialize with other students. Digital resources and local events allow for networking, but the overall feel of the university is adverse to socializing. With that said, the material is robust, and the learning process is effective. I was immediately able to apply what I learned in class to the real business world.

I only took my residency classes, so I had to pay for my stay in Atlanta, which was pretty expensive.
