does anyone have any recent experience with or information on this school? I'm aware of the problems in regards to their extremely low passing rates on the nclex, but was hoping anyone knew of the changes being made and if its been of any help?
this is from the azbn website, but i can't seem to find any updates to this..
Randolph stated that International Institute of the Americas (IIA) was issued a Notice of Deficiency as a result of NCLEX pass rates below 75% for two consecutive years. IIA submitted a response to the Notice of Deficiency.
Several changes have been made and consultants have been hired to evaluate the program. The graduating class of 2010 is expected to fall under the new curriculum.
Schreiner stated that while there have been serious problems with the program she is confident that the problems can be corrected. Members suggested Schreiner continue to provide seminars and support for faculty regarding curricula development and execution, and recommended the program suspend admission.
Motion : Recommend Board approve proposed curricula changes with a site-visit within 60 days and return to the advisory committee at the August 2008 meeting.
any info would be appreciated! i was set on MSC but i met with the nursing advisor last week at IIA and was very interested until i searched the forums and stumbled across the nclex issue..

The curriculum has changed so I am not sure what the prereqs are. They do offer them at the school; however it probably would be cheaper to do them through the community colleges. Call the school and ask for information about the admissions process for the nursing program. I have worked wtih a nice lady there who is always helpful.

in a prior post it sounded like you were going the LPN route... I'd like some info on that and maybe I can give you the info you're looking for...
there's a new rule on this board about pm's and I don't have enough posts to be able to pm you back...
