Thanks for the response!!!! so they have informed me at Kaplan that in order to get into the nursing program I need to first be a kaplan grad, at least have 6 months working in the med field, pass the TEAS and get at least a 24 on the SLE. So they suggessted that I do the CNA program which is a 2 month program and then work for 4 months then apply to the nursing program for sept 2010? Do you think that is a good path to take. Are you going into the RN program there. I think its weird that no other schools accept there prereqs and what not except university of pheonix, because I do want to get my BSN and eventually my Masters. UCSF has a masters program in which I can get my BSN from JFKU and then go into the masters program from there. I already have most of the preregs anyway from a comm college. But yes anyways whats you opinon on the program do you think its a good one? Thanks for your imput write back!
Do you have another degree? I hold a BS in Business, and did not have to have 6 months of medical experience or take a CNA course at Kaplan, and I was accepted into the RN program for Jan 2010. They will waive those requirements if you have a 4 year degree from another university.
No other school's accept their pre-req's because it is not WASC accredited. It's accredited by a career school type of accreditation. If you main goal is to get your BSN, then MSN and you do not want to do it at phoenix, maybe Kaplan is not a good choice for you. Other schools MAY take them, but there is no guarantee. But, if you just want your RN, then Kaplan is probably a good choice, because in the end an RN license is an RN license, everyone takes the same test.
Best of luck, if you want to keep in touch I can let you know how I like the program once I start in a few weeks.
