    I would suggest you apply to several nursing programs. Bevill is not telling their prospective students the State Board of Nursing has them listed as a Deficiant RN Program due to their below average N-CLEX pass rate.

    Just graduated from Bevill last week. Now I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can pass the NCLEX. Would hate to think all my hard work and frustration was for nothing. Already working under a temp license, so the pressure is really on now. Wish someone had alerted me to Bevill's pass rate before I started or I would have chosen another school. All they kept telling me was they were in the top 50 nursing programs in the country. I found out later they were ranked in the top 50 of the ADN programs only. If they had a pass rate of right at 80% when I started, and were in the top 50, just how crappy are the other ADN programs I wonder?

    They are limited in how much financial aid money they can get from everyone because several years ago they lost their ability to offer Fed. Subsidized loans. They got in trouble and the Feds told them they had to give up the Loans or the Pell Grants.

    The nursing program spends so much time patting themselves on the back they neglect the students. One thing I will caution you about is anything that happens, even tests that are graded incorrectly, are the students fault. The students will not be backed by the school against the staff. In third semester I had a test I got a lower grade on than I expected so I went to review it with the teacher, and there were three questions I got correct that were marked wrong. Even the teacher inadvertantly told me my answers were right, but she refused to change my test score. During first semester they would do test reviews after every test but there were so many questions graded wrong they stopped doing full class reviews. After that if you wanted to review your test you had to set up an appointment and drive all the way to Jasper to meet with the teacher. I was a Sumiton student and I don't live anywhere near Jasper. I did not have a good experience at Bevill and have directed 3 people I personally know to other schools.

    You're welcome. I would suggest looking into a BSN program. It is still only 5 semesters of nursing school. The typical ADN takes 6 or more semesters to complete, with the pre-reqs. To finish pre-reqs for BSN it requires an additional ENG, LIT, Chem, Math, Philosophy, Nutrition and 2 History classes. Going full-time this will take approx. 7 semesters and you will have a higher degree. I really wish I had talked to someone outside of the school before I started nursing. That is the route I would have gone. Now I have to wait until nursing apps are accepted then apply and go to school for 3 more semesters to get my BSN, while working full-time.
