Is there anyone out there that has attended/graduated from Rio Salado's nursing programs
? I would be interested in any opinions on the program as well as their general reputation. Thank you.

I have just completed block one at Rio and am about to begin block two next week. I am a flight attendant and the online program allows me to continue working while going to school. I LOVE the program. I do feel like there is quite a bit more work, but it is worth it to be able to do it on my own time.
Are you getting any support from the teachers? I've taken several classes at RIo and just wonder how much more I would have gained being in a classroom. Do you know if they're beginning Blk 1 this spring? Also, when are clinicals done?

: Reason: add to ?
On the message boards at Rio I asked some of the students who are in the blocks and graduates if they had to wait to get in and how long. A few replied that it depends where your name is on the list, one said she waited three months and that was it. Another replied that she waited an entire year before she got in. They all said it depends when you apply and where your name is on the list. So, if their are a lot of students wanting to get in that particular season your kinda in a wait and see game. I think just about every where is like that though.

I'm considering Rio for nursing. I haven't been able to locate Rio's average NCLEX scores though. Does anyone have any idea? Even a rough idea?
