    It may not, but it definitely could. Jobs for new grads are becoming more and more hard to find, especially in high-demand areas. A lot of Indiana hospitals (Clarian, Methodist, etc.) require NLN accreditation because of their magnet status. An increasing number of facilities are also requiring BSNs. I know from reading some of the posts on this board that Harrison's tuition is very expensive - more than double that of some of the public schools. If I were you I would seriously consider your other options.

    Good luck with your decision.

    Hi!
    I am not a Harrison College student, but I do know that they are up for their NLNAC accredidation. They are set to achieve this in the Fall of this year, so it may be a good decision to go there.
    Here's a link http://nlnac.org/Forms/candidacy.asp

    Good Luck!!!

    I visited Harrison several months ago and found the staff to be extremely nice. However, there were a couple of things that didn't 'sit right' with me. The cost of 50k seemed pretty steep...compared to similar schools. Also, they made it clear the Ivy Tech classes I've already completed probably wouldn't transfer. So, I'd have to take their versions of A&P 101, 102, and 201. (Would human anatomy really be different, "we call this a heart, although some refer to it as the liver" ) Soooooo....I took it off the list. Hope my scores are high enough for Ivy Tech....fingers crossed.
