    Hi Andimp00, I'm new to this site so I can't PM yet. But out of curiosity, have you graduated and are you working now and how long did it take for you and your classmates to find a job? What hospitals hire everest grads? Do you know if any of your classmates transferred from Everest to get their BSN or MSN? Please reply when you can and congrats on nursing. =)
    Hi Nursinginquirer, none of us have graduated, we will be graduating in jan. Any hospital will hire Everest new grads, they just want to make sure that you are an RN and that you have good qualifications. We have had many of our clinical sites ask us to come back and apply for positions when we graduate. However for anyone who is applying currently is well aware that most hospitals are not hiring new grads period, no matter what school you went to. The recession has hurt the job market for nurses here in Arizona. I'm lucky to currently be working at a hospital that offered me a job when I graduate, however there are students that have never worked in the health care field that aren't as fortunate as I am. Also, I will be attending ASU RN-BSN program in Aug they had no problem with taking my credits.

    I personally think that before starting a nursing program, any nursing program, you should find out what potential employers think and what type of reputation that program has. There is a community college nursing program in my area that is easier to get into than others, but they don't have a good reputation for turning out good nurses. Most graduates from that program complain that the only places that will even consider them are LTC. Where I live, Everest does not have a good reputation, and most of the people I know that go/went there are people who found community college to be too hard. I realize in other places Everest might have a great reputation, I'm just sharing how it is looked upon where I live. Think about what your long term educational goals are, and make sure you really do your homework before choosing a program. Seek out graduates of the programs you are interested in and ask them their honest opinions. Be sure to also consider what you are committing yourself to financially. I'm married and have children, so I feel it is unwise for me to take on a lot of student loans to pay for my education. (I'm going to do an ADN first, and then a RN-BSN program. By doing this I can afford to pay for my education in cash) Every program has good points and bad, just make sure the bad won't affect your entire future.

    Hi andimp00,
    Have you begun the Level I nursing courses yet?
    I was wondering how you are liking your school now. I'm in the first RN class in Everest, Ca, so I have no previous students to ask questions to. So far, I have a really good feeling about this school though!
    It's expensive, yes, but I received all of the financial information before I signed the dotted line, and understood what I was getting into----Thankfully, I haven't had any issues there with my loans, grants, etc.

    Hi Skysail. Are you still attending the RN program at Everest College Ontario Metro? I'm going to the nursing orientation in August and I wanted to know if this program is worth paying for?

    I know there have been several questions regarding the Everest Graduates and what has happened since graduation. 100% of our class passed the NCLEX on the first try. From my experience, and everyone I spoke to, we all passes with the minimum number of questions as well. I was hired in the field I wanted to work in before the ink was dry on my license. I will say it again. Everest in Phoenix was an excellent nursing school. The faculty was exceptional. I have few complaints aside from the initial stuff we put up with as a new program. I applied for many positions and not one of them had an issue with the school I graduated from. I am still receiving job offers 6 months after I graduated and 4 months after I started working. I hope all of you that passed judgement on me and this program have found your place in the world. As for me, I am an RN, applying for a Masters program that again, isn't discriminating against the school I got my RN at. All of my classmates are working, some of us making upwards of $42 an hour. The second lass at Everst has graduated and are waiting to take the NCLEX. If anyone has serious questions about the program, PM me and I will try to help. For the rest of you...good luck!

    Hi,

    I want to do exactly what you are doing. I have a BA in psychology and want to go to Everest and then get a Masters. Are they accepting the sciences from Everest or did you do those somewhere other than Everest? Thanks and congrats!

    I can't send pms yet.. but I'm very eager to find more out about everest. I just finished LVN private school, and was able to receive some financial aid. I had a monthly payment of 230/month, which I could barely make. RN is of course more exepensive, and I don't have good credit or a cosigner to use. Does everyone need a private loan to be able to afford the monthly payments? If a private loan is needed, then I am terribly afraid I can't do it. UGH. Any info regarding the financial aspect of it will be greatly appreciated!

    You will want to really be careful. Everest has just lost their national accreditation. I was very excited to start the program too but it, and Rio Salado I think both lost their national accreditation. Right now they are on hold for accepting applications to enroll. I guess it is a political thing, not due to the actual education. And what is worse is that it might start to spread to other private for-profit colleges.

    Not so much for the worse. For too long for-profits have been charging extremely high tuition for substandard education. By the time students realize they've been scammed, it's too late. It's about time the government started to look at these "schools" more closely.

    [font=franklin gothic medium]seriously, commercials like these don't exactly represent everest as a place where i can get a quality rn education. they air dozens of times a day, even during the same program. i'm not surprised they are having accreditation issues now. these types of schools bank on the desperation of students that want to override the waitlists and the admissions process at regionally accredited schools. even if i am wrong in saying that everest offers a substandard education, i can guarantee you that the reputation the school gets with these commercials sticks with employers and limits a graduate's job opportunities greatly, considering the fact that there are so many other nursing graduates out there with degrees from more prestigious and established programs.
