    My ADN many years ago was from what was then Southern State now SAU. It was a fine program. I believe it still is. Why not try it? I think you would like it. Nice small college with good educators, but the clinical sites are less than desired. Now El Dorado with the large hospital is a good clinical site. But the Magnolia hospital is not. I still think it would give you what you are looking for, though. Hope I helped.

    I've heard it was awful. Very unorganized. I'm at Southark and there are several people in my class that left SAU. Their BSN isn't accredited either.

    I have gotten accepted into there program, so I am going to try that out. I have realized the office is sort of disorganized. But I will try it out anyway. I was not accepted into other nursing schools. I have heard that the teachers will help you out alot. Thanks so much for responding.

    If anyone left SAU for the SACC it was because they failed out of the program. I graduated in May 05 from SAU's ADN program and feel that I got my money worth. My class had a 80 something % first time pass rate on boards. I had some of the best teachers you could ever dream of having while there. The program does lack the clinical hours of others, but you will spend a good bit of time in the class room and have a understanding of why you do things, not just how to do them.

    I am happy to hear that someone graduated from SAU. This is my first level and I started off bad but I am doing so much better. If you can give me any advice I would greatly appreciated. Also, what level is the hardest. I just wanted to know. Thank you

    I am so happy for you. What was the most hardest level for you. Do you have any advice.

    Level 1 was the most difficult due to me BOMBING the first test and struggling to pick my grade up to a 75% by mid term (which I heard is no longer required). Three tests to go from a 53 to a 75 did not make for a fun time. I had to pass the final to pass the first semester and managed to get a 81. I hated maternity & womens health, being a guy and all, but I got through it. The second year was hard, but I enjoyed the material for the most part and that made it a little easier.

    Hello I did bad on the first two exams but I pulled up my grade for mid-term. I had a 77% without the quizzes. They dropped that rule about needing a 75% for mid-term grade. But our instructors was stressing that some of us need to drop. I encourage people to stay because I do believe in miracles. We have two more exams and a final. I am worried about the next test it is dealing oxygenation, growth and development, urination and elimination. But I am going to study and do my best.

    The 75% rule was there to keep the students whose knowledge wasn't up to par on the material out of the clinical setting. A instructor who has a student who is doing poorly in class will need to spend more time with the failing student out of fear of a mistake being made due to lack of knowledge on the students part. This in turn takes time away for the students who are passing and need help in clinicals. I personally don't think it was a good idea to do away with it. If someone has to make a 90% or higher on the rest of the tests to pass the odds are greatly against them.

    Is the ADN program really only 2 years? I have most of the gen ed courses that are required on the website. How many hours a week are you in class just for the nursing classes? What about clinicals?
