I am going to an open house today at a nursing school and they have a question/answer session. Now, I have some concerns about this school. They only have a 75% NCLEX pass rate. This school has been in existence since 1937 and their pass rate dropped about 2-3 years ago when they started accepting non-traditional students. Of course, at the ripe old age of 35, I am definitely a non-traditional student.
Now my problem is I don't know what questions I should be asking when I go there. Of course, I am hoping someone can explain the pass rate. What other questions would you ask? Under normal circumstances I wouldn't be considering this school but the whole waiting list thing at my school of choice is getting to me. I more than likely won't be getting in the Spring 05 semester, so I will have to reapply for Fall 05.
This school is much larger than my CC, and almost double the cost at $14K, but I will probably be able to start in January 05. I am hating my job more and more everyday and am extremely anxious to start my new career.
Any advice would really be appreciated.
Thanks fellow students,
