Will I get a job if I graduate from Kaplan College?

  1. 0 Hi everyone! I would like to hear from nurses who went to Kaplan College for ADN program. I want to be an RN and so I have taken pre requisites to get into ADN program. I don't want to wait too long to get in the nursing program so I'm thinking of transferring to a private school that is accredited. My only concern is that how many of the students who graduated from an accredited private school like Kaplan College are actually getting a job after getting license. I know I can finish faster if I transfer but it's also going to cost me a lot of money. I want to make sure that i will not wind up unemployed with student loan debt.

    Hi - I don't know the specifics of Kaplan College but as long as the RN we hire has a license we don't ask where they went to school.

    But back to your questions - I work for a vocational school and we must by federal and state standards give you information as to how our grads are doing - ask for and expect to receive from Kaplan:

    number of students that started the RN course, number that dropped out voluntary and involuntary, final number that graduated and then how many had a job in the field within 90 days of graduation and held that job for at least 90 days. Most schools will also give you info about what the starting wages were.

    Ask for your info in writing, Kaplan should freely give it to you. This is info that is kept and shared in order to manitain their federal financial aid. Good Luck

    Employers are concerned that your nursing license is unencumbered and they are interested in your work experience. They rarely have an interest in what school you attended, unless it was some fancy place, like Harvard.

    yep-network, an rn is an rn, people who have msn's often make less than a plain old rn, btw.
