    Hi Lhalty, congrats on being accepted! I've been conditionally accepted for 2018 while I finish my pre-reqs. I'm a little concerned about the previous threads that mentioned the high dropout/fail rate. I'm also applying to other schools so I have more options (possibly cheaper schools) to choose from. If I go to Bellarmine I'll be moving from the West Coast.

    I am in Ohio and I was worried about the high drop out rate too. I am applying for other schools in the area just In case. If I don't get accepted in any other programs At least I have a guaranteed spot in Bellarmine. I am still waiting on Xavier University and MSJ in Ohio.

    I attended the informational meeting held last Thursday- Julie said that the dropout rate for the one year is 80-85% but that is because people try to hold a job & they aren't dedicated to the program (partying stage still). She also said there's an option to drop down to the two year program if the first semester doesn't go well. (Which is a nice comfort blanket). I'm thinking positive! We can do this! I'm waiting for my NursingCAS app to go through- they are so SLOW. Maybe we could all swap Facebook info so we can keep in touch! I'm planning on starting in May as well Add me on FB - Bryanna Doss (Michigan).

    Good luck to you both.

    Did I apply for any other programs. 85% is very high rate and I highly doubt that 85% is due to petting or working. Something that's sound right about this.

    Hey guys! I went to bellarmines accelerated program and let me tell you it's HARD. The 85% drop out rate is completely true. Please try and apply to other places. This place should be your back up plan. If you all have any questions do not hesitate to email me at I will answer any and all questions including financial questions as well. Good luck on getting into nursing school!
