Complaint Review: Kaplan University
Kaplan University Kaplan University Online Davenport Iowa Clinical Issues Nationwide
I have had issues with financial aid and other things at Kaplan University but the clinical issues have been the worst. It took me two days to be able to reach my clinical site. When I went for interview was barely given the time of day. Something seemed off but just thought I was being paranoid. One the first day, I made sure I showered, had clean clothes, basically everything hygenic as if I was going to an interview or something. After being there for awhile, and only pulling patient files, I was sent home and told to play with my baby. I have an 11mth old and they made a big deal about working, school and externing and having a child under 1. The second day I went, I performed the same measures as the previous time. Shower, clean clothes, brushed teeth, deoderant, etc. The lady instructing me was over 45 minutes late. Then after 15 minutes sent me home again, at the same exact time as the day before, and told me that I smelled bad. I was so upset that I called my husband bawling and went to his job to make him smell me. He said I smelled good and then I asked his mother as well and she said same thing. I don't wear purfume etc bc of already being in medical field and we arent supposed to. I emailed the manager at the achool and told her the issues I had been having at the site. I explained numerous people rebutted the sites claim but it didn't seem to matter to her. The third day I went, I was sent home the exact same time as the previous two times and told the school would call me and to come back anytime. I received an email from the manager telling me that I smelled bad and that we needed to fix the issue. I told her that it wasn't an issue and I thought something else was going on. She wouldn't listen to me and I told her that I couldnt go back tot hat location. I then received an email the following Monday and was told the site terminated me and I would have to do a remediation plan if I wanted to continue at the school. I was depressed and didnt want to do anything. I almost lost my current job to accommodate for this externship and now it was all in jeporady. I had a conference call to remediate the issue and they said the site told me several times, which was a lie, and basically blaming me for everything and didnt care about any issues I had at the site bc " they volunteer to take students and we need them". They also had issues with my husband bwing on the line and also told me false information that was not listed in my handbook but was supposedly in their handbook about not being able to have a second site during this term. Now I am out over 1200 for the class plus I am going to seek a lawyer to sue for possible damages, lost wages, etc. Please do not attend this school. I will have over 40k invested in an associates degree that I probably will not even get now.
