I saw Beckfield Cincinnati's TV commercial last evening. Very costly. Bumps up way up tuition. Now has anyone checked to see if Beckfield is accredited by the NLNAC, the only national accredition agency. National League of Nursing Accreditation Comm. Beckfied is NOT ACCREDITED. Also have you checked with the Ohio Board of Nursing. I could not find that Beckfield was an approved program. Back to the advertisement. Ohio consumer law requires Beckfield to put in its TV advertisement a note that it is not accredited, at least. I am not sure on the approval by the Nursing Board if it is not approved, then this must go in the advertisment.
Unfortunately many of the for profit programs are not accredited. The result---- students sacrifice -- pay double or triple the state school rate but, without a degree, from an accredited school, the graduate can not qualify for most hospital positions. God Bless them and you.
