    I'm moving to Pensacola Florida in a few months and none of the community colleges seem to be accredited for a R.N.(2 yr.) program. If I go to a college that isn't accredited is that bad? Will I not learn the skills I will need?

    It isn't good :uhoh21: As long as a nursing school is approved by the Board of Nursing in that state you can get your RN and work as an RN. The problem comes if you want to get a license in another state and/or get your BS. Most college programs will not accept a nursing program that is not accredited. Some will if you have a valid license but it is always iffy.

    If you cannot pass NCLEX you cannot get a license. You would be a nursing school graduate working in a non-nursing capacity. If the school is non-accredited there must be a reason. Check with the state Board of Nursing.
