The school I'm attending has a very new ADN nursing program
. When I started attending the school, they only offered LPN. My plan was to do that, try it out, and then move forward with my degree. I ended up leaving school for a year (had a baby!), and when I came back to continue classes, I discovered they were about to start an ADN program. The first round of ADN students just graduated this past year and had a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX-RN. The program then received approval from the Georgia Board of Nursing (right on schedule to when they said they would). They applied for NLNAC accreditation and received "Candidacy." The official statement on my school website says they anticipate accreditation in the next year.
I was recently accepted to this program -- due to start this fall. 500+ applicants, and only 35 seats! I'm excited but nervous. If all goes according to plan, the program will have NLNAC accreditation before I graduate.
What are everyone's thoughts on this? Does it seem risky? What are the odds they would not receive accreditation? I plan to bridge to BSN and eventually MSN after this.
