I really enjoy the opportunity to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. The admission staff has been really helpful in helping me navigate the application process. They answer my questions no matter how many times a day I call. Also, they have assisted me in working through some issues that I had with the enrollment process.
Amazing school! Awesome instructors. Very challenging programs that prepare the students for everything they could encounter in the field.
Great school, enjoyed my time here. Can't wait to use all that I have learned and all that I have been taught to make a change.
Baptist Health College is dedicated to enhancing students in professional and personal growth. They have a wonderful team of educators in place specifically for you. They uphold high standards and values that I admire and relate to. I have enjoyed my time here as a student and would recommend Baptist Health to anyone furthering their education in the medical or rehabilitation field of study.
Honestly could not say enough bad things about this program. They are so unorganized, unprofessional, and overall just awful. They teach to their exams and do not prepare you for the NCLEX in any form or fashion. They barely teach anything, majority of your lectures will be either your professor reading straight from the PowerPoint or your professor telling irrelevant story’s during lecture and not teaching a single thing. You’re essentially paying $7,000 to teach yourself. They fill your schedule and schedule tests every week, some times back to back, and clinical paperwork is irrelevant to what you’ll be doing on the job, and very confusing. They never explain it to you, and then give you a bad grade on it when it was their lack of communication. Overall, do not go to this train wreck of a program. I will be transferring to a program that will actually prepare me to be able to pass the NCLEX and make me a safe nurse.
This has got to be the worst schools in the entire state I’m honestly surprised they’re still even open. The admissions process was descent, but once you start classes you will see how disorganized and pitiful the program really is. The tests aren’t on the same level as the NCLEX so you’re not actually prepared, the clinical paperwork is confusing, overwhelming, and pointless to what you will actually be doing in the field. And while there are some good instructors who try to teach, there are many more who don’t teach any further than reading off the powerpoint or youtube. And when you do poorly on a test because of the material provided by the instructors, then be prepared for the instructors to play the passive aggressive blame game because everything is the students’ fault except theirs, even if this means the entire class failed the exam. Would definitely like to see instructors put more effort into their teaching and stop being so passive aggressive to their students.
At first I thought everything wouldn’t be as complicated online. Online seems a lot easier because of not having to get up and go to class, but it actually makes everything harder than it needs to be. Maybe some people like online classes better, but I’d much rather have classes be on the campus instead of online because there is more to take away from having classes on the campus instead of taking the easy way out and having them online. If anything having them online has made everything much harder on both the students and the instructors, more so the students who learn better in person.
The pandemic has made school harder. We learn from home. The teachers make videos. The students are over working. Tests are every week. There is not enough time in person skills lab to feel comfortable doing the drills. A lot of the lectures are recorded. I am sure it is not a bad school I just haven't had the in class experience because of corona.
I like the online experience because I get to stay home and take classes. I do not like how a lot of the lectures are recordings because then you have to go out of your way to ask questions. It is a little confusing trying to figure out how to pass the exams when we don't know how the teacher thinks because everything was moved online and the answers are select all that apply and select the best answer.
I would say overall the school is average. The good thing about it, it allows you to get close to your teachers. There is always an opportunity for questions and to get more help. They really are here to make sure that you succeed for sure.
I have really enjoyed my time at Baptist Health College. The faculty is really nice and helpful with anything you will need. The classes are great and the amenities of the school are great. The only thing I wish they had is a bigger place to study and a better cafeteria. However, I do really love the workers in the cafeteria. When they serve pizza, they will give away the boxes at the end of the day, with pizza in there, to whoever is there still.
Great school with awesome teachers that want to see you succeed! Going for the LPN program starting in January and I’m and do very excited to embark on the journey!
I love the teachers we have here. They are very great, always willing to help out when needed. The staff member are all so nice.
The 3rd and final semester, the school only cares about their NCLEX pass %. I have legitimate proof of a few that misinformed, misguided, belittled and harassed myself and others. Their mentality- they choose who should/should not become RN's. The finals and makeup exams are non-reviewable, so if they do or don't like you this is where they can and do manipulate individual exam questions and alter grades. Hesi exit=950, yet I only passed 4/15 exams.
I liked it here, teachers were very helpful and understanding and wanted me to suceed. It is hard, but worth it! Offices are really helpful, there was some confusion with my fafsa when they switched to a different system, which made my disbursement take longer. The computers sometimes cant login or have weird upside down monitors, but printing is free. Lots of job opportunities and many friends I know got jobs before graduation. They make it easy to enter the workplace. I think its average rating because the building doesn't have enough study spaces, The printers are always being used, and the cafeteria is more like a snack bar.
Freshman semester is like a gentle river stream and sophomore semester your thrown into razor sharp white river rapids. There is little cohesion between semesters, or between staff. Teachers are good but just read you their powerpoint lecture or outline without really teaching you to do well on their exams. The 2-3 times they will give you practice questions in lecture they are so simple it doesn't even touch some of the upper level NCLEX/HESI style questions they will give you on their test. If they really wanted students to pass NCLEX and HESI so bad, why are they not teaching in a way that will prepare students for those? Then we would do well on their exams too. The program is good and you will learn a lot, but be prepared to spend a lot of time studying, doing assignments and clinical work that wont help your grade, and failing a test or two because your teacher literally misled all of your study efforts.
From the get go you are ready to work hard and gain all the knowledge and material you can and pass with flying colors. You will be met with confusion, disorganization, and an outdated curriculum if you are used to a four-year college. This college takes in as many students as they can then loads their schedule with time wasting assignments and 3-6 hour lectures that could be done in half the time if they could teach through material and not get off topic. Half of all your time will be spend doing things that will take away from actual learning and NCLEX preparation. For all the time you are in lecture make sure you take good notes, because a few questions will actually come from their slides and what they said in class.
