    Glad to see this school of nursing continue to improve it's nursing program--instead of diploma can award associate/baccalaureate degrees.
    I am a DSN graduate and would like to clarify a couple of points. DSN was not a diploma program prior to this accreditation. They have been approved by both the Colorado Commision on Higher Education and The Colorado BON. When I graduated, I recieved a bachelors degree and was eligible to take the NCLEX.

    Also, a little off topic but for the folks about to start or considering the school, I was hired into a fairly competitive new grad program for critical care in the Denver area.

    PDC,

    It's nice to hear some positive insights from an actual graduate. I am looking into DSON and your comments make me feel more at ease about going there. Thanks!

    Congrats PDC!! I'm happy to hear about your success. This is such an exciting time for me and I'm sure for all the students who are getting ready to enter the Jan 09 class. I've also heard rumor that DSON is considering starting their own MSN program in the future but so far no confirmation on that... However, if this is the case it will give students who are concerned about going further with their education a chance to do so. From what I've learned so far the students are really impressed with the school and the instructors--the only drawback being tuition. But with accredidation this will make it possible for others who really want to go into nursing to be able to realize their dreams, especially young moms or dads, second career people, and folks just graduating from high school. I think the more avenues available for people, the better for the nursing field as a whole, especially with the shortage. As long as standards are kept high and the field is able to attract bright and dedicated individuals, perhaps the profession will continue to improve for the better for everyone!!
