I am currently a generic BSN student there. I am entering into my 4th semester, so I will be officially starting clinicals next summer. I transferred in my associate's from a community college, so my cost got cut some and I got pushed ahead. To begin, before I even decided to choose this school, I explored all my options. I went to all of the community colleges and the public universities to investigate their costs and how long it would take to get accepted into their programs. The average waiting list was about 2-3 years for the ADN programs and there were limited spots with high competition for the bridge ADN-BSN programs between the community colleges and the universities. Taking this into consideration and the costs of still continuing my current job while waiting to be accepted into these type of programs, I figured it was about the same for what I would pay now for a for-profit school like Brookline. They are high priced, but that is the decision you must make if you want to fast track your education and that is the decision I took knowing full well what I was signing up for. As for my experience, it has been mostly positive. From the first time I walked into the door until now. The counselors were very thorough with the paper work and they sat for a few hours with me explaining not only the enrollment process, but the financial side as well. Financial aid is considerably knowledgeable and they go over payment options with you and leave the decision making to you in regards of which path you want to financially take. Of course, they are a for-profit organization, so of course they will push you towards the private loans or options that would get them their money now...as an adult, you can simply defer to the other options. As for the curriculum, I have enjoyed my classes. They are challenging, there is a lot of essay writing to keep your mind creative and on par, as well as, most teachers have a good education background to them. The school is also very open when it comes to communication with the students, they do this via open door policy (even the Dean of Nursing honors this), student council representatives that lead each cohort, and town hall meetings to hear feedback from all students. They truly do react to that feedback as well, I have seen it firsthand. Of course, with any new school, there comes flaws and risks. All of which, the school attempts to either evolve from or fix. I took a risk knowing this school has not been accredited yet, however, the first half of that accreditation has already been implemented and the NLNAC has given nothing but positive reviews for the school, I have high confidence the school will get it. And I should mention also, the first graduating class was back in August of 2012 and they passed with 100% passing rate. Not to mention, the employment acceptance rate is up to 80%. I know this, because I am a student council representative myself and the school shares this information openly. I can only give you my personal experience and what I am capable of affording, financially. By no means am I rolling in money, I have a lot of support of federal loans, but again, I understood fully what I am signing up for and the payments I will have to make in the near future. I have out of pocket payments even now, because the federal loans do not cover everything, but again, it is something I was capable of and it is a subject the school covers with you as a student. I hope my experience will help you in your endeavor and best of luck.
