    South University - Online Reviews

    I actually really loved South! The schedule of 5-10wks with typically one class at a time is so great. The instructors are thorough, though it can be a bit of a trial and error to see how each one grades and what they expect. I worked full-time throughout my program including 180 clinical hours per rotation. I also LOVE that the last course focuses on board reviews by providing students with APEA QBank and the Hollier review. Hands down would recommend. I’ve already had 3 co-workers start with South for their FNP and my mother graduated with her Masters of Nursing Education. Side note: some learn better online and some need an instructor in front of them. Online works if you have the motivation to get yourself through. You’ve got this!

    I love the online experience with South University! The 5 - 10 week courses make it very convenient to have a flexibly schedule. You decide when to login to the classroom and get your work done. There are no scheduled days that you HAVE to go into the classroom, all that matters is that you get all your assignments done each week by the deadline. The professors are ALWAYS there to answer any questions you may have, and offer support in any way needed.
    All around great experience! Classes are very interesting and the professors are very helpful. My financial and academic advisors are very hands-on and answer all of my many questions.
