I got accepted into a community college for ADN program for this fall. Someone after the fact told me it isn't a good school because pass rates for NCLEX are low (88% which I don't think is THAT bad because I don't have issues learning so I *believe* I will do fine) Then as I am looking into it I find out that while the college itself is accredidated with the Higher Learning Commission, the nursing program is not accredidated with the NLNAC. Is this a big deal? What does it mean? What would the benefits be to waiting another 2+ years to get into the schools
in my area that are accredidated by the NLNAC? This school does offer a bridge to BSN program on campus through another college in Rockford, IL... so I shouldn't have a problem getting accepted into that if I do good in the ADN program. Will I be hireable if I go to a non accredidated school? Any help appreciated. I tried to call the school today but everyone in the nursing department is off until Monday.
