I need some help! I graduated in 2001 as an LPN. I then went on to get my BA is psychology and am 4 classes into my Master's of Healthcare Admin. I have decided to get my RN before finishing my Master's because I believe it will make me more reputable. (I have no management experience and really need to get my foot in the door working).
I work from home full-time and have 3 small kids so time is tricky for me. I am looking into Brown Mackie but have been reading some negative feedback from previous years. I am not seeing much of anything current though-so I am wondering if they are getting better?? I also want to get my BSN (because it won't take that long since I will already have my LPN, RN and BA is psych), and I want to know if I can go to another school to do that after graduating at BM. And, will I be eligible to take the NCLEX in MO?? That is where I live and the school is in KS. I just don't want to get done and then not be able to take the test. The advisor I spoke with said the entire program for me would be about 6 mos because of my previous classes. Therefore, the time really is appealing to me-if I know I can work as RN after testing!
Thanks in Advance!!
To anyone that is looking into BMC especially Salina Ks...dont waste your $$$$$$ or your time, they are all about the $$$$ and not about the student.. they don'/won't listen to any suggetions and how they handle careplans and clinicals is exhausting and humiliating... clinicals m-w-f t-th class all day you are up all night then going to ! Yes, I have a rotten huliliating and very expensive experience with them, but so have many others that I have met at this program, 3 students have 15,000.00 in student loans and nothing to show for it. They do what ever thay can to get the $$$$$ out of you and very little to help you succeed!!! Its very fast paced losts of home work hardly anytime to study, add children on top of it ... dont plan on working either!!! One other thing I am a non-traditional student of 50rs. ran a prescool, raised my 3 children and I would never allow them to be treated the way this program treats their
students ...They are all aboout $$$$...there are many other programs out there lots less $$$ and want to see you succed!!!! Ask yourself this do you just want to be a nurse or doyou reallly want to be a nurse...3 mos. fast pace like this your not really learning much just enough to hopefully pass your tests thats if you make it through your clinicals!!!
