I would like to congradulate the three Bauder College RN Students from the first class who recently interviewed and got offered a New Graduate Nursing Position at Shepherd Spinal Center. It's a dream to be offered a position by the end of your interview, and these guys achieved that. They are setting the standard for the rest of us who are behind them. So for anyone who thinks that if you come to this program you wont be able to work as a RN, it's just simply not true. This program is new and the class that finishes this month will be the first to sit for the NCLEX. And with all of the resources and training that we have access to, they have been prepped to be NCLEX ready. For those of you who didn't realize or are worried about the accreditation of this program, here's a little info:
Yes the school (building) that we attend is named Bauder College.
The RN Program is the KAPLAN RN Program.
So yes we are inside the Bauder Building, we pay tuition to Bauder College, and are taught by Bauder Instructors all of which have a Doctored or Masters Degree in a specialty nursing area. However we are KAPLAN RN Students as well https://kaplanlwwtesting.kaplan.com/s_login.aspx
. There is a KAPLAN RN website that we do reviews in each area of nursing.
Our entire program is Kaplan based. We have access to Kaplan focused review test and lectures through out the entire program. So if you know anything about Kaplan, You know that Med School, Pharmacy, Dental school students, etc have paid hundreds to do Kaplan reviews without having the amount of access we do as nursing students in this program. So look up Kaplan guarantee for any questions. I would consider myself to be a smart person, who spends my money on quality products. So yes, when I found out how much this program cost, my eyeballs rolled back in my head. Especially knowing its for an ADN degree. But when I found out what training I would be getting with Kaplan, I could understand where my money was going and the quality of what I was paying for. Believe me if it wasn't Kaplan RN I would not be doing the program, but they are major quality and I see what I'm paying for and it's worth it, In my opinion. This is coming from someone who had taken the TEAS test with a high score of 81 and still did not get into nursing schools in the area, for three years because they accept once a year and i wasnt making the cut. It also helps the cost that the program offers a extremely good military discount that cuts the cost of the program by 38%. So if you are in the military, prior service, or wife or husband of someone with service, take advantage of this.
I can actually say that everything has not been a cake walk with the program being new ( last minute communication with students). But I will say that I am learning a lot from some really good instructors. And have gone to some of the best medical facilities for clinical training. I will also say that I am proud to be in this program, and wear my white uniform and badge. It feels good to go out and help the patients knowledgable and dressed for success. It's still all up to the individual student to utilize the resources we have, study and be prepared to learn, in order to pass the NCLEX. Hey, you can lead a heathen to church but you can't make him pray. So with all that I will say, NLNAC, Bauder College Nursing Students are on their way.
I just noticed those last sentences rhyme, how corny is that. And I did't do it on purpose. lol
Anyone with questions, just ask.
