    this university sucks sucks and sucks
    i hate them
    they are dummies..fake..i totally hate them
    they are the biggest racist i have ever seen..

    now let me explain u why
    i took one class with 30 other people..
    more than 10 people fail that class from more than2 points..i failed that class from0.2 point..
    later i came to know that i have to pay 1500 for that class and take some part of it again.. i was ****** becuz i came to know that other 9 people got 2nd chance to give same exam ..i ask them i deserve second chance too..but my teacher told me no she is not giving me second chance ..she told me they were lucky so they got 2nd chance.i dont see anyreason for teacher to give 2nd chance to other 9 students except me..

    PLEASE BEFORE U EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS UNIVERSITY,ASK ME ALL THE QUESTIONS..
    THEY ARE ONLY NICE TO THEIR COMMUNITY PEOPLE..

    >I called them last week and talked to the Japanese woman on phone

    There is no Japanese worker there.
    There is one Korean lady who speaks a little bit of Japanese language, but not enought to keep
    conversation in Japanese.
    This lady seems not good at conveying a message because I had to call 3 times just to make sure she will give my message to the person who in charge and gave her my phone number 3 times...

    I think this school is like a one of the private LVN schools.
    They accept any students who want to enroll without any difficult entrace tests and get some money in advance.
    However, they will not keep any students who fail an exam during the program since they don't want to jeopadize their high passing nclex rate.
    This method is also used for most private LVN school at the moment.

    It is very easy to get into the program of private school, but you should be prepared to keep passing exams of the program since each semester is pretty expensive.

    at shepherd u can pay by semester but they do not gaurantee u a seat in the following semester if u do not pay in full. i found out there is about 1.5 month break in between each semester. keep in mind that their nursing program has been around for 11 years now and just been approved by the brn last month. I'm not trying to defend the program but there are not that many LVN to RN programs without waits in california any more.

    @tothepointeLVN: i've heard of excelsior but never considered it because of the licensing issue in california. after reading the ad, it does soun appealing but is that legit? and with the job shortage in nursing in california, would that really be a good idea?

    who has this kinda money to pay in full???? without financial aid will be hard for students like me

    Hi I am an LVN and I am looking for honest opinions on this school whether good or bad.
    I have tried to get into community colleges for their RN program, but have not had much success.
    Between Shepherd and West Coast college, these are my last 2 resorts.
    Please help thanks.

    Since you are an LVN, you should look into WGU. www.wgu.edu Way more affordable than both of the others. Their next cohort starts in August. Check into it.

    I would try schools like National University cost is (37,000) , West Coast University is the same nu 37,000.
    But Shepherd University is a new college, no federal aid to pay tuition. Think about it ,but if i was you i would not go to that school. You're going to paying 5,000 per sem 79,000 cost.

    I went to talk to them and they said that I need to take pre-req courses in Fall which will cost me a total of 12000 and then I will be able to start the nursing courses in Spring, but that's IF I get accepted, which is according to the counselor is 50/50 chance. SO then I have to spend 12000 taking all these pre-req in addition to the old pre-req I took. I already took Anat/Phys, Micro, Chem, but now have to take Music Appreciation, Biology, Role Transition, and 3 others, a total of 6 courses and pay 12000 in hopes that MAYBE I get accepted for the actual program in Spring. Do not have a good feeling about this. Is there anyone who has been through this and got accepted for the actual nursing program or someone who got denied after doing all this work and spending all this money??????? Please let me know your opinion. THanks
