- Feb 13 by LAW1157First, the term accredited should be clarified. NLNAC is an organization that certifies that you teach to their standard. NLNAC does not give the accrediting for testing for the National Licensing Examination for Nursing Licensure. Only the states have that authority. This accrediting service can be in lew of State accrediting because a state chooses that. You take the same test that everyone in the country takes. So what makes a NLN nurse so different? Nothing. The school is what is recognized as different. I had a graduate who worked next to a graduate from Ivy tech. The NLN grad from Ivy Tech made errors all the time no attention to detail. Where you graduate from has little to do with your ability to nurse; but, if you pay attention to your instructors you will shine. Short cuts are not the focus of a nursing education. The nurse who did not follow the 6 rights of medication administration came from a NLN accredited school. Don't be tricked. Employers can choose to discriminate.
- Feb 13 by forgopI'm not disputing there aren't fully capable RN's coming out of MedTech and that there are plenty of them coming out of NLN accredited schools that aren't the sharpest tools in the shed. That said, I would question why someone would invest all that time and money into a school that some hospitals refuse to hire from or because their credits would be meaningless if they wished to obtain a BSN, MSN, etc.
- Feb 15 by libran1984I have heard thru the grapevine, the LPN program will be in danger of losing accreditation once the degree is dropped from the program and thus leaving it merely as a technical certificate.
In addition, the college, from an inside source, has not been taking the necessary steps to gain accreditation for their RN program. It simply won't happen. The instructors are purposefully being told to mislead their students with the phrase, "it's a long arduous process that take a lot of time". As of two months ago, they did nothing to step towards the RN NLN accred. Currently, I do not know where they stand.
I am firmly opposed towards med tech.
