So far my experience with ECPI has been great! The instructors are very helpful and my student success coordinator, admissions advisor, financial advisor, and anyone else I need are just a quick call or email away. All of the staff that I have dealt with so far were very encouraging and helpful!

Throughout my time as a student in the registered nursing program at ECPI, I have discovered many pros and cons. The class sizes are small and allow for more individualized learning, but considering the classes are only 5 weeks, that advantage is somewhat minimized. The staff consists mainly of friendly and respectable people, but lots of dissatisfaction in the workplace so lots of negativity on a daily basis. I do suggest that anyone considering this program be extremely dedicated or they run the risk of falling behind. Once behind, it is almost impossible to catch up. Overall, I enjoy my time as a student here.
While cheaper than other online Universities, it is still an expensive route to go for a degree. 5 week courses claim to have as much as a regular class, but this is only true depending on certain departments. In the technical or math field, you will learn way more and do more in person than online. I attended a community college locally and then started ECPI, and the course content in the local college covered and taught more than equivalent classes I had to retake at ECPI. Have had several courses that felt like a ripoff for what I paid. Instructors are hit and miss. The female instructors tended to do a way better job I've noticed.
