    I think it was delayed or pushed back to July 09 start with Apr 2009 application deadline. I was going to call the school, my mind is telling me not to go down this path yet. I'm applying to others with a Aug 2009 start...one I finish with my testing a paperwork will the other schools...I'll apply for this program too.

    I'm in the process...I'm finishing a class now and need to take some tests from other Nursing schools.
    The accreditation takes awhile, it will depend on the grads pass rate on the NCLEX as well. Its a very nice facility, and staff so I think they will breeze through the other portions of the accreditation. As long as you can sit for the state boards which you can...the accreditation will take care of it self.
    My issue is the travel (I-4)and the class schedule. Notice I did not say the money...I sound like a lot but for a BSN not too bad.

    what do you mean travel on the I4...I am from out of state. I was thinking of visiting mid March...what can you tell me about the area? I think I would rent a place in Lake Mary, just to be closer, I would rather spend 30 minutes studying than commuting.

    have you heard back from any other schools yet? I haven't.

    have you followed any threads on new nurse employment in Orlando...doesn't look too good. However, if we get our degrees in 1. 5 years maybe it will be better. One of my teachers suggested volunteering at a place that I want to work so when things turn around I will have a leg up, hospitals near me are making their employees take unpaid time off. I think I will want to move to Tampa after school....beaches etc. :spin:

    I am 25, female...you? I wonder what the demographics of Remington students are...

    hello... i think they will notify applicants in the next couple of weeks. if i don't get in here i might have to wait 6-12 months to apply again i have gotten wait listed at 2 schools....if i don't get in then maybe i will work as a CNA and take a pharm class and reapply. it's a bummer because I really wanted to move and start school while my brain is still sharp from the year of prereqs. sooo anxious! but there is a great program in another state that is free if you committ 3 years to a local hospital but it doesnt start for a year, and then another is really cheap but in another country and over 2 years long.... we'll see! good luck to us all

    hi everyone, i am very anxious to apply to this accelerated bsn, but i have read some negative post about the remington college, such as no accreditation, not able to find a job after graduation, expensive school etc...
    i am very confused and don’t want to jump into a deep well.
    does anyone know anything about this program or the remington college?
    this accelerated program seems fairly new.
    any insigth would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    Has anyone applied to this program?

    This is the first time that I have heard of Remington College of Nursing. The website says the early consideration deadline is April 15 and the final review for the July class is June 1. Does this mean that you can still apply after April 15?

    You will be able to sit for the exam In FL, but some other states won't let you transfer because the school is not accredited and therefore valid for FL only. I will send in my app. tomorrow. The first dealine is 4-15 and the second is sometime in June. Yes, u can still apply after 4-15.

    i wouldn't worry about things you can't control. there are other things to worry about? :typinghave you seen the schedule? it's very challenging.

    accreditation is from ccne:
    its a brand new school, accredidation does take a little bit. i'm not sure most knows what its like to go through an accreditation. they have applied for the accreditation, its a process...they wil have their site visit from the accreditting agency in nov. shortly they will find out about the accreditation. from my impression of them when i visited the facilities, its a beautiful school, the staff is top notch. i dont think they will have an issue.

    so, what is the big deal with being accreditted:
    - alot of the scholarship for nurses ask that the school be accredited by
    ccne or nlnac.
    - most travel agencies want hire nurses from accredited schools.
    - some higher degree schools accept degrees from only accredited schools.

    rn license is different:
    you can sit for the nclex, rn license is the main goal.
    most states only require that you have a current licensed if you wish to apply for their license.

    as far as finding a job. remington students clinicals are at the major hospitals. additionally, some of the hospitals position that are open for new rn requires a bsn degree.

    i would love to go there but the travel was my issue. good luck with your choice.
