Mildred Elley has been amazing. They have given me an opportunity to obtain a degree. Despite reviews, they work really hard at helping students and prospective students. Professors reach out to you often, your advisor will contact you however you'd like so I believe that they really care about your education. I chose the perfect degree program and I have no regrets.

I attended the New York City campus located at 25 Broadway. My experience at Mildred Elley was a pleasurable one. I had the opportunity of meeting some real knowledgeable professors and other faculty staff. Mr. Farrington, Mrs. Angella, just to name a few. From the start everyone was involved making the transaction a smooth one. Financial Aide staff were awesome! Very polite, open and knowledgeable. Classroom settings were comfortable, where everyone could get help and attention from the professor. For clinicals, we had some of the very best clinical professors who made sure we grasp as much information as possible. They took the time to explain procedures and challenged us along the way. To prepare us for NCLEX, we were provided with books which were paid for through financial aide; ATI first then we switched to Kaplan. Free classes were provided for anyone interested. I was wonderful! I appreciated everything. Career Services helped us to prepare resumes, cover letters, and prep for interviews! They help us with job search and placements also. Even though I didn't get a job through them, they helped others who were placed. Like ever school there are ups and downs, nothing serious. But if you have a goal and set the standards and your priorities right you will definitely make it. Read ahead of class by following your syllabus and study hard! I really wish they did the RN program, I'd definitely be in the front! I passed my NCLEX on the first attempt with 75 questions! Thanks Mildred Elley! Graduated June 2012!
