    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    74%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Bryan College of Health Sciences graduation rate is above the national average.

    74% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Bryan College of Health Sciences completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

    Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

      Student Reviews and Ratings for Bryan College of Health Sciences

      Overall Rating:

      Overall Rating:

      After intimately researching over 50 colleges in the last year and a half, I found Bryan College of Health Sciences. Ranked 15 in the nation, last years graduates had a 100% pass rate on their ARDMS exams. I moved my family halfway across the country to attend this college. Why? Because I know that I will obtain my degree, with student debt attached. However, debt and a degree does not get you licensed. You have to be able to pass your board exams. With Bryan's excellent pass rates, most of the time at 100%, I am confident I will be able to pass my board exams as well, and that is what is most important at the end of the program. I made an excellent choice.

      Bryan College of Health Sciences consistently ranks in the top three for first time NCLEX pass rates in the state. This program also requires a lot more clinical hours than the state requires. As a recent graduate, I felt very well prepared as I job hunted and began working. I agree with what another reviewer said, that you will get out of the program what you put into it.

      This is a top notch Health Professions College. The Nursing programs are the best around. They are cutting edge on what they teach and how they teach. You receive from the program what you put into the program.

      Overall Rating:

      There is very little that can be said about Bryan College, at least nothing good. The academic culture mixed with poor management have diminished this program to a second rate center for education. Of course I am only pertaining to the nursing program, other programs may be fine and well, but the overall entity is still managed by the same group of inept individuals. Speaking strictly about the BSN-Nursing program: There always appeared to be some disconnect with the instructors and the students, as if the professors were almost burned out. I'm sure the professional burned was not helped with a vast majority of the professors focusing on ascertaining their own Doctorate in Education. Other professors, for a lack of better works, were just too old or incapable to changing with the times. It seemed that there would always be a technological issues or they teach from their own outdated point of views. literally not teaching the science of the practice, but sharing minimally applicable stories of the "good ole days". Bryan does a pretty good job of selling individuals on how they are Great and Wonderful, and that here we are all family! This only holds true if you if you a willing to sacrifice a majority of your own identity. You see, if you voice your concerns or professionally speak your mind- they will can make your educational experience hell. For example, I was in a clinical situation bearing witness to a medication being, it was not me who administrated the medication. Afterwards, I received an Unsatisfactory for the clinical week for asking my clinical instructor what ramifications would have ensued if I were to admin the medication under RN supervision. Furthermore, after each clinical week you a required to write a self-evaluation, providing your strengths and weakness, what you plan to do differently next week, and express any personal concerns that you had during your clinical experience. Not once, but three separate times I was reprimanded for voicing my concerns. Additionally, I would say that 50 to 60% of clinical experiences is extreme hand-holding and the clinical sites don't provoke much intellectual growth- as if the course of the day was not very well thought out. Classroom lectures were lack luster at best. The educators were rarely engaging, missed several key concepts needed for NCLEX, and boy-oh-boy did they love showing movies. I found that if you missed a class it really did effect you on the tests, you would have to learn the material on your own anyhow. The educators did a poor job of teaching at a higher level of quality. I would think for 20+K/year a professional should provide better education or at the very least prepare the students for their future careers. In summation of my own personal experiences: It is most certainly not worth the money, the education provided is substandard and you will have a strong sense of being prepared for saving lives. Lastly, a large majority of the individuals that attend the college are fresh out of high school, so if you can't deal with teenybopper gossip and drama that constantly encompasses the environment then I HIGHLY recommend looking into another college. At the end of the day all your employer really wants to know is that you care about your patients, your jobs, and every action that you perform is well thought-out and causes no harm AND not where you went to school! I hope this helps any potential candidates, its most certainly is not in favor of Bryan College of Health Science , but I can not in good conscience go without voicing my serious concerns. Take everything with a grain of salt, but understand that I am a nurse and know few things especially speaking from first-hand experience.
