Hi acunha! I know what you mean. I remember them saying that emails slows the process of getting the applications reviewed; therefore, I have not sent any emails out. I had a friend that was in the program a few years back and said the program was on the verge of losing their accreditation, but I don't remember why. Also, the Nclex pass rate worries me as well, which makes me think that the program doesn't really prepare you for the nclex. But then again, maybe it's just the student. I've also heard from people that it's harder for students from National University to find jobs. However, I don't find the last statement to be completely true as I have seen many new grads from National Univ get hired at the hospital I volunteer at. I believe that since almost losing their accreditation that they may have stepped up their game, but I don't know anyone who's currently enrolled to ask how the program is now. These are some of the big ones I've heard that worries me. Some people say it's a good program, others complain. It may just be how much time and effort you put into the program.
I am also getting really anxious to hear if I got in or not. It's already October...so not too much longer (but this waiting game will make it seem super long).
Hi ExPharmaGirl! Thanks for your response. How did you feel about the instructors? Have you already taken the nclex exam and, if you did and passed, have you started working?
