what if school lose provisional accrediation?

  1. I'm looking at this school, is provisionally accrediated by board of nursing. Their conditional accrediation is dependent on 1) at least 75% first-time NCLEX passing rate for the first and second graduating classes.

    What will happen to the third graduating class, in the worst case, the school lose their accrediation? When they started, the school is provisionally accrediated, and when they graduate, the shcool lose accrediation. Are these students still be able to take NCLEX? Even if they are able to take board exam, are they considered graduating from a non-accrediated program?

    During the provisional period, students can sit for the NCLEX. If the school is not granted accreditation by a certain number of students being able to pass the NCLEX then the students who attempt to sit for the NCLEX after that will not be able to because it was determined that the school did not meet accreditation standards. You cannot sit for the NCLEX unless you graduate from an accredited school or unless your school is provisionally accredited.

    I hope this helps you. I personally would not consider a program that was not fully accredited. That's an awful lot of work and stress to go through to not be able to sit the NCLEX.

    What?? Sounds like you are confusing NLN accreditation with state approval. NLN accreditation has nothing to do with being able to sit for the NCLEX. As long as a program is state approved (and I believe that they must be to even operate) then you can take the NCLEX on graduation. Some programs choose not to seek NLN acccreditation and some are so new that they cannot obtain accreditation yet, either way grads can still sit for the NCLEX.

    The OP ? is confusing b/c it refers to accreditation by the board of nursing. It's this state board of nursing approval? Oh this is all so confusing))) Correct me if I'm wrong
