    Is anyone going to a for profit nursing school this fall?

    No, honestly I'd rather wait and go to a traditional school where I wouldn't have to worry about accreditation/approval, high tuition rates etc. Luckily, I start nursing school next month. I know there are people out there who don't have time to wait for a nursing program and they need something quick, but hopefully thorough research has been done on that school and it gives their students a quality education. There is a for profit school in my town and most places around here will not hire those graduates. Not to say that all for profits are bad, but there are many out there that shouldn't be operating.

    Same here, i will be attending one in September. Didn't have to do too much research, only because i already attended the school before for another program. Good luck on everyone's journey

    I have been going to a private school in Tampa since January and I love it. Many of the hospitals in the area speak highly of grads from this school. I've only heard very negative things about the community college programs in the area, so I'm glad I didnt try there, to get waitlisted for 2-3 years.

    Mrscseaton, you have to keep me updated and i believe you will do just fine with the interview. I hate typing on my phone because it thinks it knows everything, and i have to keep erasing. Super annoying lol Aachavez, what school do u attend? And yes, cc's are good at having waiting list.

    I will post back here when I know something ... I was kinda nervous about posting about a for profit nursing school because I have seen a lot of negativity when someone says they go to that kind of school. But I'm excited I think I have a good chance of getting in
