    Congrats, you guys deserve it. Although I did not go to Harrison, I am glad to see that another new school has made their goal of NLNAC. This will open many more doors for you guys concerning employment opportunities and continued education. Again CONGRATULATIONS

    Congrats! I was considering going there this Fall but I am kind of hestiant being the price of the program almost $41000, that's an really expensive ASN program, also hardly any of my credits will transfer maybe 3 classes out of like 12. How do you feel about the loan situation? I plan on one day having my master's but I don't know how possible that would be with me already having so much out in loans already. I mean like are there lots of grants, or scholarships to get because really that's the only thing that is standing in my way is the amount of money. Could you please provide me with as much information you are willing to share, it would be appropriated? Because right now I am so lost and I don't know which way to go. Please help! You could email be at tburse2@ivytech.edu.

    Yes, I agree that Harrison College is expensive and $41,000 is pricey for an ASN. All propriortory schools are because they don't receive any funding from the state. It was great news to learn that their nursing program received their NLN accredition. There are so many hospitals, including the one that I work at, that is working toward Magnet status and will not hire RNs from schools without NLN accreditation. Students going to Harrison will not have to jump through hoops to get into clinicals though,,,,so that part is attractive.

    Take care,

    $41k for an ASN? Ouch. I thought the ~$48k at Marian for an accelerated BSN was bad.

    Now with NLNAC accreditation, it may be easier for credits to transfer. You may want to look into it again!

    Has any one that has graduated from Harrison tried to get a BSN at IUPUI, IUB, or a similar school? I called IUPUI today and they told me that they would only accept 15 credit hours from Harrison even though they have their NLNAC. Indiana State University said they are waiting for Harrison to get their HLC; once Harrison has their HLC, the Indiana State rep said that they would take RNs from Harrison for their RN -->BSN program.
    Basically, I think all prospective Harrison Students would like to know the success of the RNs that have graduated from here.
    Thanks!

    Sorry to hear about the troubles Harrison grads are having. I to graduated from an Indiana School without HCL or NLNAC accreditation that limits where you can continue your education. Harrison grads should look into WGU or WGU Indiana. I was sucsessful in transferring in most of my credits and am now pursing my BSN through them. They are CCNE accredited and are very affordable. Here is their link. WGU.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advice RN2064. Were you able to get a position as an RN with your ADN? If so, do you mind sharing where?
