    I attend Keiser Fort Laderdale campus although not for nursing, but occupational therapy assistant. Our schools news letter that came out this month had something in it about a 4th semester nursing student that scored on some nationwide nursing exam called the critical care cap exam, anyways she scored 4th in the state of Florida and 14th at the national level. I dont know if that helps you about the quality of education in the nursing program at Keiser.

    As far as Price Keiser is very expensive, but I love the school and the education I am getting.

    I have never heard of these exams, most nursing exams are not a scored test but a smart test that only measures pass or fail, not a score, they give you questions til it knows the answer, some get fewer questions (those that ace it) some get a lot (those that fail or barely pass), similar to the NCLEX

    Yes, way too much. But, I did graduate with a 4.0 and passed my NCLEX on the first try. I had my license to work as an LPN one month to the day from graduation. I am working and making $21 an hour though. Overall, I have to say Keiser College was a good experience and has taken me one step closer to my goal of becoming an ARNP. I am now half way through the RN program with Excelsior and have found that the foundation I got from LPN school has made the tests bearable.

    I am Keiser Melbourne, RN program.

    The price with pre reqs you are looking at around 40,000. There is virtually no wait list, my school is nationally certified by the NLN along with the state board. I can give you other information if you would like it. The program is rigorous and VERY time consuming but worth it, to me. PM me or post any questions and I would be happy to answer them.

    I was almost going to pay $40K for a BSN degree at Nova Southeastern University......... but destiny had it's way and took me to Broward Community College.......... and did not pay a cent to go to school.

    NSU was a great school, but unfortunately I failed one class.... and even if I did pass it, I did not qualify for loans (my mom only makes $15K per year, so she could not be the co-signer for the loans)

    anywho, Going to BCC was very tough, we got treated with lots of disrespect that no student should go thru.

    I would of gone to Keiser but it is really expensive for an associates degree. So what i did is, never took my name off the waiting list of BCC even though I was accepted at NSU.

    so my last day at NSU, I got my acceptance letter to BCC.

    I passed some good times, and sad times at that school.... but I made it and passed boards 1st time.
    out of 88 people from 3 campuses, 84 passed boards 1st time.

    I am happy that I passed, I have no loans, and even if I waited 1 year 8 months.... it was all worth it at the end.

    BTW, Broward Community College does not have a waiting list anymore!!!

    my friend who is applying to Keiser in miami, said that there is a 2 year waiting list.

    I have a friend who went to Keiser in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and said that in that campus, there was a lot of cheating going on.
    that people would test in "groups" when the instructor would walk out of the room.

    the keiser i am going to is in Orlando FL,

    they are just building a new building over there...

    By the way... if you cheat on school is bad, but the NCLEXRN always will tell the truth

    Hello, I am also going to the nursing program at Keiser starting in Sept. I am going over there Monday to finish all of the paperwork and stuff. I was wondering, I talked to a friend of mine earlier and she said that program wasn't accredited, is that true? I didn't ask because I know the melbourne campus is so I kind of just assumed it. Let me know any info you know about the program . Thanks!!
