Save your money!  Their online program is a joke.  They'll tell you what you want to hear, but won't deliver.  I was told that they had several practicum facilities in my area. When it came time for my practicum courses, they denied telling me they had facilities, and refused to help find me one. Academic advisors don't return calls, or you get one that knows absolutely nothing about your degree program.  If you're on an old completion degree program, they'll set you up to fail just so they can get rid of you.  God would not approve of the way they treat people.  Shame Shame Shame!! They're nothing more than hypocrites! If you don't use enough Bible quotes in your assignments, you get docked points! The professors won't help you. It's sink or swim. If you sink, then that's more money for them!! STAY FAR FAR AWAY!!

Not Perfect, But Ssatisfied

I started one program and was only three courses away from completing my masters, then took a break due a family illness. On return, I was that the program I was in was being dissolved, I could not be re-entered into that program because I was away too long and I needed to change my degree discipline, which meant taking an extra three courses and two more semesters to complete. However, I still could have met the dead line to complete the original program before its end date of dissolving. Nonetheless, they wouldn’t let me. The saving grace is that I was interested in the plan of study they recommended I change to, but as mentioned, it cost me three more courses and another year schooling. Another thing I am very disappointed about is that they are adding quizzes to a masters-prepared program (high school stuff) and if you don't get all answers correct on quiz, you cannot get the right answer from the professor due to the school's policy. I may understand the reason behind it, but learning experience does entail learning from your mistakes. I never heard of not being able to get the right answer after you have already been graded. On the positive side, I do get the cheap military tuition (thank God) and most of my professors have been great. One let her PhD go to her head, but the rest were wonderful. And despite the online learning format as being extremely time and life-consuming, I am learning the key elements of my discipline. Word of advice, do your homework and research with online learning programs, they all have their issues and problems, you just need to choose your battle which problems you are willing settle with and move on with your degree. And don’t quit, whatever you do.

Liberty MSN online is horrible

The online nurse educator track sounds great on paper, but the actual courses are "facilitated" by instructors that do not care about the students and are very disrespectful and snide. The instructors don't follow their own rubric for grading and when this is brought to their attention they become very nasty. Test bank questions are marked wrong when actually correct. I provided page numbers from textbook to document the correct answers and it would take several attempts to the instructor to gain the points I should have gotten in the first place. The instructor then graded my papers harshly to retaliate for making her re-check the answers. Most of the students had the same complaints about the test bank questions being marked wrong and posted in the "ask the instructor" discussion forum. The instructor deleted the postings and scolded us in our e-mail that we were not supposed to post such things. Online advising is pretty much non-existent. They get back to you days later and do nothing except tell you to "have a nice day". I am seeking another MSN program.

WGU MSN

Faculty at WGU typically have great credentials but work from home and are often over stressed and underpaid. The degree is inexpensive but he price is a "one size fits all" degree. WGU does not maintain the resources to allow any student the option to taylor the degree to their individual professional needs. You must eat your gruel in the order that it is served. There is no program transparency and the faculty are often abrupt and snide with the students. The school struggles to accept any negative feedback from the student body. Constructive feedback from the students is always dismissed. I love online education and I love the opportunity to work efficiently and independently, this program became overly tedious and often felt like the blind leading the blind through an unfamiliar maze.
