Bauder College Pleasant Surprise - page 39

So I had a VERY NEGATIVE initial contact with this college. Through just ONE conversation it's apparent that this school is a for-profit. After calling the school I was transferred to their Atlanta... Read More

    hello ,
    Does anyone know if Bauder is working to get accrediated with NLNAC. I am excited for the program however, after look ing on job boards for RN positions most hospitals list: must be a graduate of an accrediated school of Nursing. That could b an issue to pay all the money for school and have a hard time finding a job! That scares me to death Answers anyone please

    @deah I did not have either class complete
    Did you follow thru Bauder? If so, how you doing? Since it is regionally accreditated I am choosing it over nationally since I can transfer credits but still confused to weather is best to attend a national vs a regionally accreditated.

    Hi, my name is Ed and I am interested in the nursing program at Bauder. I already have a BS in IT but making a big career change after been layed off. Currently I am taking a CNA/Phlebotomy/Patient Care Technician combo program finishing in May. By then hopefully I will be enrolled at Bauder for the A.A in Nursing. My concerns with Bauder is the regional accreditation thru SACS. SACS just recently removed Bauder College from (warning status) and wondering why they were placed in that status in the first place. I would hate to take classes that could end up not transferring to other schools. Ive already went thru that experience and trust me, it feels like you wasted money, effort, and time and had to take the course again.

    My plan is to get my AA and join the Air National Guard. My understanding is that they in some cases take an AA and put you thru officer program with the condition of getting a BS before captain rank is reached.

    My question at this forum is: is Bauder nationally accreditated or just regionally? Whats best of both accreditations at the long run, anyone starting in may as well so that I can be in touch. My email is

    Oh and more importantly, why make you choose Bauder over the regular community colleges? My reason is because here in GA the waiting list is so long and competative that I will have to make straight As and meet the requirements before acceptance in the program by 2014.

    Thanks for reading.

    The Bauder College KAPLAN Nursing Program for ADNs is a joke. The instructors are complete EGO maniacs with deceptive practices, grade changing, harassing some students to death and the worse simulation lab in Georgia. You would think that the administrators of the program would be better, but they aren't. Things like cursing classes out, having ridiculous rules that have nothing to do with the policies, being complete ****** for no reason. They suck! They can't hardly even get clinical sites, who ever would think that you would send nursing students to a freeking jail for pediatric clinical rotations. The so called Director of Nursing for the program is pathetic and the assistant DON is even worse. They are caught up on ego and nothing more than that. They make fat checks and do not care about the students at all. The environment is hostile and not a place that focuses on teaching, learning and making sure that the students succeed. All they want is the $40,000 and that is all. They do not care what students go through to make the financial sacrifices to go there. The program is completely disorganized. Students are failing the NCLEX left and right. The pass rate is only 60%. I am so glad I am done with them. I would not sent a chia pet there! It does not seem like the corporate office even cares. Something needs to be done about those people and soon before anyone else gets jerked around! Call the corporate office, ethics line and anyone who will listen!

    Ok heres the thing and this is for anyone interested in bauder rn program. We loom for people that will make good nurses. We want people that read and study not to just pass a class but to actually understanding what the heck they are doing. If you are the type to cheat or half ass assigent bauder ia not a good fit for you. Its a weed out process and and we definately are weeding out those that flat out should not be there, taking longer than some thougjt but those that are needing to be gone are getting ghost. Not to be harsh but I dont want half competant nurses coming into my hoslital room. Unfortunately a lot of people slipped through the cracks and got in the program but nursing school is a survival of the fittest. Im grateful to be in nursing school and to finish this summer god willing.

    So...hopefulnurse I am currently in the program ( just started) but it does seem disorganized but it's new...the pass rate does concern me though. From what I understand only 3 ppl have passed the nclex out of 15. Is that true ?
