Chandler-Gilbert On Probation

  1. Hey everyone, I recently saw on AZBON that Chandler-Gilbert's program is on probation. Wow. I'm nervous because this is the location I'll be applying to after next semester. I have really liked the school so far and was surprised to hear bad things about the program, and now this?
    Here is the link: https://www.azbn.gov/media/2511/chan...nt-5102017.pdf

    Should I be casting my stones elsewhere or is this not too much of a problem?

    This does not surprise me at all. That college has the worst reputation of the entire MCCD. I hope this is a wake up call and that they can turn it around. But I personally would not attend a school that risks losing its accreditation. If they lose it mid program, you are SOL. And schools with a poor reputation are known by hiring managers

    Only if you're considering CGCC.
    OP, I would consider attending one of the other college's until CG can get their program back in good shape. I went to GW and had no issues at all with any of this.

    I am pretty surprised considering MCCD has some of the best NCLEX pass rates in the state. I wonder why this school is the only one with a bad program...

    I wouldn't say the program itself is bad, it just seems like their administration needs work.

    No, I've been accepted at a different college, but that doesn't detract from the fact that it is really worrying!

    It shouldn't worry you too much, because as I previously stated, this is a CG nursing program administration problem, not a MCCD problem. I just graduated from the program at GW and all of the grievances the board has listed for CG were not a problem at GW. While the CC's are all connected and follow similar curriculum, they are also all different. For example, PV and Scottsdale used different books for the nursing program than GW. While it's okay to want to keep an eye out for problems in your own program, I would not be worried about CG's unless you're going there - which you said you weren't. It sounds like CG just needs a fresh set of administrators for the nursing program there.

    I agree - and I think we're talking at cross-purposes....I'm not worried in regards to the college I will attend (I don't think this is a MCC issue, I agree with you it is restricted to this particular college) I'm just saying it's a worrying situation in general, and I guess my comment was spurred by my general frustration at (IMO) sinking academic standards ....

    I think this is really true especially for nursing programs. Chandler-Gilbert is on probation, Grand Canyon only has like a 70-something NCLEX pass rate, and Coconino is under fire too.
    I've heard Mesa CC has a great program but I really have enjoyed Chandler-Gilbert so far - it's small and all of my teachers have been great (all except my ENG 101 professor who can't really speak English...) and the Williams campus is awesome - almost like a separate building for nursing students. It seems like all the schools have some kind of drama around them lately. It's scary.
