I'm in Coeur d'Alene and I'm taking BSN classes through them. Some of the instructors are great, but some of them are complete trash! The two genetics instructors in Lewiston are horrible. The only good instructors I've run across are actually up here, so who knows...
And getting financial aid from them is like pulling teeth! Mine is always a month late and they charge you late fees if you haven't paid your tuition by the second day of class, regardless of whether or not you have an award letter.
If I could switch, I'd be going somewhere else in a heartbeat. Consider a move to CDA and try to get into NIC's program? They've got almost a 100% pass rate, which I hope to be joining come this spring... hehe.
Most of the grads I talked to said the NCLEX is easier than the tests they had in the program, and my friend didn't even pick up an NCLEX study book and he passed the first time.
Whatever you choose... make SURE you're getting what you pay for. I can't imagine graduating and then getting blind-sided by boards that I was nowhere near prepared for... then you've got to re-educate yourself all on your own.
PS: All of the Spokane schools
suck too... I've heard about 5 horror stories about them and was actually on the floor when one of their students just about killed a pt doing a routine procedure..
