    My Experience

    Awful. RUN. DID BSN Express and they couldn't mess much up because that schedule is locked in. Currently transferring to Georgetown for FNP. Was accepted to Villanova for FNP then was suddenly pushed into AGNP, then pushed back a year because they accepted to many students for allowable clinical spots to keep their certification (I had set up my own preceptors but it didn't matter). Every time I talked to my advisor they would change my curriculum to classes I had already finished. Even when they set me back a year I would go on just as the registrar would open to sign up for the changed curriculum and the class that was only offered 1x yearly would be full (meaning they put students in and filled it prior to it being available for sign up yet suggested the class knowing it was full). Their answer, Oh well. Soooo unorganized, little if any response to your emails and calls. Put in for transcripts to transfer my Spring 2018 classes to Georgetown and found out from Georgetown they didn't even put my Spring 2017 graduate research, which was a TON of work and money, on the transcript! What a #### show.

    About The Staff

    Education faculty are awesome you learn so much, it's hard work. Higher faculty are bullies, do whatever they want.

    Things To Know

    They really need to make laws against the things they do. School is now a service and I am a consumer paying for that service. If I order a bedroom set and get only a poorly made end table and dresser I have a legal right to my money back. Still discussing with my lawyer how to approach a lawsuit against them... See you in the papers!

    My Experience

    Everyone was extremely supportive. Nurses at the hospitals we did our clinicals at were very open about how much they love having Villanova students due to what they felt was an above average level of professionalism and clinical ability.

    About The Staff

    All very helpful and friendly. Extensive resources for career development, mentoring, and independent study.

    Things To Know

    Villanova was my #1 choice for a reason. I honestly feel that my nursing school experience could not have possibly been better anywhere else.
