Also, I wonder why the BON even accredits
Personally, I think that most of nursing school is 'learn on your own'. I don't think any school covers EVERY topic needed for the NCLEX.
My school is considered to be extremely hard to get in and extremely hard to stay in, but has a reputation for turning out some of the best nurses. I heard that from the school before going in, and said, "Yeah right...whatever."
I've also heard that at hospitals, and from people not even in the medical field. (They've heard of the program.)
There once was a time you had to have 4 physical education credits to be a BSN. ....Now that is what I questioned.
I think studying pharm mostly on your own, makes you learn it more. You know you can't just listen to a lecture and pass a class. You actually have to 'study' it, and spend lots and lots of time on it!
