    Hello sure, I was missing one pre req for the nursing program I got into (starting May '13) and my counselor said that I would not be able to take it at MDC because I didnt let her know by the time of the interview that I had enrolled in the class. Now what I was missing was American Lit. I had everything else, and she gave me an attitude when I told her I wanted to take it at Dade because its way cheaper....336 at Dade....almost 2,000 at Keiser. When I told her If I could speak to the director of the nursing program she said she wasnt there that day and that she would call me back...later that day she emailed me saying that I cannot take it at Dade and if I did I would not be able to go in the program. So pretty much you either take that pre req at keiser or you can kiss your spot goodbye. So I called her and let her know alright no problem let me go in and speak with financial aid and see what I could do....I was about to take out a loan for a stupid pre req that I would have to pay back by the time I got in the program, and then thinking of all the loans I would be in debt with by the time I graduated from their program...I went online and read horrible reviews on the financial side...look Im young, and I originally did not want to do nursing, so switching from it was always an option, and just going to keiser did not feel right. It felt like I was just going into a bank not an educational institution. So I will be re enrolling at FIU for the spring semester with another major hope this answered your question!

    QUESTION FOR KEISER ORLANDO GRADUATES:

    Where did you do your clinicals? Were you able to get a good job after graduating? If so, where? And, if you don't mind, what were the average starting salary offers you got?

    Thanks so so much, in advance, for the help.

    I walked into Keiser upon finishing my pre-reqs at Brevard Community College to see what it was all about. Honestly, I felt as if I was sitting through a sales pitch. A $35,000 ASSOCIATES degree?! You've got to be kidding me. And look at the scores, they tell it all. Keiser requires very low TEAS grades and their pass rate of the NCLEX cannot even compare to any of the major universities. UCF, UF, FSU, USF, and any other nursing program is HIGHLY competitive to get into, they are the best of the best. Your degree is half the price AND you end with a BACHELOR'S degree!! Hospitals will hire BSN graduates over ASN graduates any day. My mom attended Keiser for their medical assisting program and since that is a technical degree, that's fine. But when it comes to nursing programs, Keiser cannot compare to any of the universities, which happen to be well established. The numbers tell all.

    [COLOR=#535353]Straight from Keiser's website it says: An Associate of Science degree is considered a terminal degree and is not transferable.

    This means that if you wanted to get a bachelor's, Master's, or PhD in Nursing, that it would HAVE to be from Keiser. Their program credits will not transfer to public universities.

    This is by far from being true - public universities will accept the classes if you choose to transfer to complete the BSN portion... just call up the school you are interested in going to after you complete the program at Keiser to make sure they'll accept the degree. I know USF will.
