    You can't apply to the RN program until the end of your 3rd quarter in the LPN program. You should find out if you've bee accepted in the beginning of the 4th quarter.
    Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like a smart a** there. I meant that honestly. I forget that some people don't do the LPN program there and such.

    No problem, I didn't think you were trying to be a smart a$$. I think I misunderstood the question. Are you just starting the LPN program or are you going straight into the RN program? Did I answer your question? You may have to ask it again. Sorry!

    Where on earth can I find the latest nclex pass rates? I have searched kbn's website and can't find them anywhere.
  5. 1
    1. KBN web home page
    2. FAQ's at top of page, about half way down the question asked about the pass rate for each program.
    Hope this helps

    JCC's pass rate is the same as Galen's. Now I am nervous.

    Don't be nervous. That is from 2006 and Galen had just started their RN program. It is probably higher now. Also, it's not just about pass rates, Galen really tries to get their students as much clinical experience as possible. I had great clinicals through Galen, but you also have to have a good attitude about going to school. That is what's going to make or break your success in nursing school. You will do great.

    The 2007 NCLEX pass rates are now up. Not only has Galen's rate dropped (which still worries me even though I know I shouldn't), it seems most schools pass rates have dropped as well.

    They've dropped because the NCLEX changed. It is normal for most schools to experience this when the test changes. Also, look at Bellarmine and Spalding (VERY good programs), their numbers have dropped also. No matter where you go, YOU are the determining factor of whether or not you will do well in school and pass the NCLEX. Study hard. Take it seriously and learn as much as you can. Galen is a good school. They are new and are still working on organizing and things like that, but they do have some good instructors who really want to teach people to become good nurses. So don't get discouraged. Go to school, be optimistic and try to squeeze a little bit of fun in there.
