Student Reviews and Ratings for South University-Montgomery
This is the worst school that I've attended. During the first quarter in nursing school, I had a teacher that didn't teach us anything! The whole class thought that she just didn't care because at the end of the school quarter, she left. There were only two great instructors in the whole nursing program and they left. The staff members in the office always said that we were welcomed to come talk to them about anything but we (my cohort) didn't know who to trust. After exams, our grades would get out to other cohorts by an instructor that wasn't even teaching the class. I had a situation that I couldn't help and I was told that I couldn't attend clinical for that day and to write a 10 page paper while several of the others got away with it. When I had a meeting about it, the program director went off subject and started looking at my past grades and said that he was doing that to everyone. That was a lie. He came off very prejudiced to me. I saw another review saying and that he talked down on students and I agree 100%. He's racist. I was told by an instructor to my face that the people in the office were trying to get people like me ("Black") out of the program and I believed her. I also had another problem on an exam about which race of people were more likely to get sickle cell. The instructor said with me being "black", I should have gotten that question correct. It was very offensive. Racist! The staff is very unprofessional and nothing is kept confidential. Teachers were changing answers on exams and they chose who they wanted to let through in the program. Policy requires students to get full clinical hours in order to graduate. False! People graduated without full clinical hours. People even got by with being late to several clinicals. The dean of the school isn't any help. The staff sticks together. They don't care about the students. They only care about the money and sticking together. Tuition is very expensive so I wouldn't waste my time or money. Trust the reviews that you read because I wished I would have. I would have never attended this school. Like I said, they pick and choose who they let through. Everyone is not treated equally. People don't know the half of everything you have to deal with in the nursing program. They (staff) always get defensive when you speak up and try to tell them how you feel about certain things in the program. If you do decide to go to this school, RECORD meetings and everything for proof. It's sad to say that you have to do that, but just giving you all a warning. If there is a problem that needs to be resolved, speak up as a CLASS. Don't leave anyone hanging. People were scared to speak on things because they knew how the staff was and thought that they would do something sneaky. I wrote this review because several people have asked me about this school, so here you go.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Absolutely loved SUM and all of the staff and teachers I had the pleasure of working with! Got my bachelor's in business and was successful due to all of the one on one assistance and encouragement I received! Though expensive, I highly recommend them, especially for older adults who are looking for a small classroom setting. Veteran and financial aid assistance is also available...Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Yes this school is expensive, but it's also a private school. Everyone I have met is wonderfulSource of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
For the love of God, don't come here for nursing. If I wasn't in too deep in this school I would have left already. Tuition increased to $7900 and the sim dolls in the nursing lab haven't been working for a while now, we don't even have the required materials in the lab to properly practice check offs which is why I feel so nervous practicing skills in clinicals. I feel like I don't know anything. For all the money that we are paying it is definetly not worth it. I am so worried that I won't be a proficient nurse when I graduate. I don't feel like I am being taught enough. Like I said, I'm way in too deep to leave at this point. Don't let them fool you, nothing works in the lab. They'll tell you that they're working on getting them fixed but they haven't been working for at least 3 quarters.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
This school is a waste of money. You pay double the tuition and receive half the education. The teachers are horrible, except for a few. When you have a problem, nothing will be done to solve it. They only care about receiving the money.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
