Denver School of Nursing, July 2017 cohort - page 4

Hello all! Just wondering if anyone else had applied for July. My friend called today and the lady said they would be letting everyone know by the end of the week if they would need to schedule... Read More

    I did not apply for July, but I was however accepted to the October cohort. Is anyone else at all concerned that this school was sued by the federal government for fraudulent financial aid documentation in 2015? Or the high turn over rate of the professors? I was really excited to move from Minnesota to Colorado and start this new chapter of my life but am extremely weary of this news after reading the reviews of the school, at such a high tuition rate too! I don't meant to discourage but it's something we should consider, right?

    I was accepted for october as well, and will be moving from California. Honestly I had concerns as well, but after reaching out to students on my own who actually go there currently, I feel a lot better. Everything negative I read on the internet sounded like disgruntled students who failed and/or their parents, with not much to back it up. Nursing school is hard, and prepares you to pass the NCLEX; not for new grad programs or the real world. It's super expensive, but where I'm from most schools plus cost of living end up around the same price and a lot more. It's all about how you approach it.

    I'm a current student here and yes the reviews are scathing, but many are true. This is coming from a student who has done fairly to very well in most of her classes. It's not the teachers so much, true, they aren't all fabulous, but for the most part they are and you get what you put in. The main thing is the clinical office. They lie to you, tell you that they will try to get you somewhere close to where you live or if you have a preference they will do their best to get you there. Then...reality strikes you right in the face. I can't site specific incidents since I'm still a student there and am currently going through another nightmare regarding my current round of clinicals. So if you care about where or the caliber of your rotations, find another school. People have been placed for many of their rotations in any place but a hospital. Some get all hospitals. Their system sucks, instead of rotating people around if they go a hospital for one rotation or they were out of town for one to someone who maybe wasn't and alternating...some just get all the good spots and others get screwed repeatedly. Be wary people.
