Where are you getting your pass rate info. As of last year I have:
97% NCLEX pass rate
80.3% Student retention
84% Job placement
I got my information from the Ohio Board of Nursing and these are 2010 statistics. Where did you get yours?
Last quarter in 2010 pass rate was 70.37%. Total for 2010 was 81.36%.
The last quarter in 2009 was a 90%, but the YTD in 2009 was 80%. Which is still the 2nd worst in this area (Galen is beyond worse.)
I'm not saying don't go there (I would be saying this if it were Galen, lol). I'm just saying make sure you spend outside time preparing for the NCLEX because either they don't teach enough to prepare you, or many of their students don't study enough for it.
Also, you might have gotten more responses if this was posted in the Ohio Nursing Programs
discussion forum. There is actually a large thread about Hondros, so you might get some helpful information from there.
Hondros College of Nursing - Input?????? - Page 15- Nursing for Nurses
I have a relative at Hondros in Cincy and she hates it. She went to Butler Tech for her LPN and enjoyed the program. They didn't have the RN program at that time, and the closest option to her to get in without a wait was Hondros (she doesn't want a BSN.)
