    This may be a dumb question, but can you please explain what is planned for the 27th? My letter didn't say anything about it. It was very vague. Basically stated its not happening until further notice

    I'm not sure. I haven't started pre-reqs yet but if I do it will be local then enroll online to the program. I have read on here that some students are having issues with TCN right now due to ISU on hold

    I also recieved a letter same as yours thunderstruck1397 and this is how my story goes. I applied at ISU and got accepted last Aug. then ignoring all the comments I have read here, I went ahead and also went the TCN route for my phase 2. When I recieved the letter from ISU, I immediately called my advisor from TCN and I was informed that anyone accepted before Sept. is not affected. but then again until we see it in writing, nothing is definite yet. I am just wondering if we CA students can still continue with the online studies then make arrangements with ISU for our phase 3 clinicals somewhere out of CA and eventually take the nclex-rn out of state and apply for reciprocity so we can practice here in CA. I know this would take a lot of logistics and will cost us more but this is just my two cents worth so we can finish our BSN program. If you guys have any suggestions perhaps you can share it. Anyways, this is just plan b or c or whatever incase the meeting on 9/27 falls through.

    On Sept. 25th CSU Chancellor changed his recommendation and advised SSU not to enter further partnership contracts with ISU. This officially ends any future prospects of continuing with SSU in order to be able to offer clinicals in CA. In addition to that, current program was found NOT to be meeting BRN requirements even after the second progress report was submitted by ISU administration. You can read about it for yourself on Meeting materials link, but since the info about CSU Chancellor’s decision came out 2 days prior to the meeting you will not see that on the notes posted so far. http://www.rn.ca.gov/pdfs/meetings/b...ials_sep12.pdf
    You have to wait for the meeting notes and webcast to be posted in the coming days. At this time no further communication was provided by ISU administration to its current students.

    The above post is absolutely correct. I should add that during the Board meeting, the CA BRN investigator stated that during their investigation the Indiana State University nursing administration LIED TO THE BOARD.

    Student comments are divided. Some blame ISU for the problems of non compliance and lying to the Board while other students defend ISU. Those who defend ISU blieve the communication from ISU that they are working dilligently to obtain another program for the ISU students. However, if ISU was so concerned about their students, how did ISU find itself in the position of being out of compliance with the CA BRN in 6 areas-- not 1 area but 6. If the ISU nursing administration were competent and concerned about their students, there would never have been one noncompliance issue and there would have never been any lying to the California BRN. Further, now that the program has dissolved in California, ISU should have immediately refunded all fees, tuition students and potential students paid ISU as well as paid to TCN (TCN is an associate of ISU). To date, not only has ISU not contacted the students since the Chancellor pulled the plug, but ISU has not offered any financial reimbursement.
