I have heard of an alarming number of community colleges and proprietary schools in my area being placed on probation and then eventually losing their accreditation. I was talking to a friend in another state and she said that the big CC in her area just lost it's accreditation. In the article she read about it in the paper, the reporter had interviewed some high ups at local hospitals and they said that they had recently stopped hiring graduates from these institutions and would no longer hire them.
That sucks! They said the nurses these schools turned out, even though they had PASSED THE NCLEX AND WERE RN'S couldn't provide adequate patient care!
Does anybody know how this works? I feel very challenged in my program (CC), and we have excellent NCLEX pass rates, but how would I know if I was at a school that may be placed on probation or lose it's accreditation?
