    Update I am enrolled into UTA RN-BSN program, and I love it.

    I am also graduating ITT-Breckenridge next month. I started looking at schools as well, and I was so interested in applying to UTA. However after reading your post I guess I won't be able to get in their as well. At one point I was in speaking with a recruiter and she never mentioned that they would not accept my school. I emailed her today to see I was still eligible to enroll. (an hour prior) to reading this post. I also had an interest in Drexel University. I spoke with a rep yesterday and was told they don't take Breckinridge students as well. I choose this school because it was the right fit for me after leaving my local community college. I'm not down and out about this, and I am sure there is a school out here that will accept my degree so I can move on. I did find a post once before with a list of schools that would accept student from non-accredited and or other accrediting agencies as well if I find it I will lost the link. Good Luck and God Bless.

    Update:When I spoke to a rep from Drexel, I did not realize that I never took into consideration that all but one of my credits that are my preq's came from my local community college. Which are transferable to most institutions that are accredited. Therefore I do I have a better chance of attending an accredited school. However if you completed your preq's through ITT then yes I will say they are not transferable with some colleges and universities. Good luck I hope the above post helps.

    This is good information. I was just hired in a LTC. They give 2 weeks orientation and that's it. I was wondering how I'm going to handle 20-30 patients as a new grad Nurse.

    I failed Nov. 16, 2016. I am almost died I studied and prayed so hard. I failed I think mostly from mental fatigue. I studied 8 hours a day for week even the day before. My results came back in all areas as Near Passing. I'm waiting for my ATT now. I really like Uworld and I plan on using them again. Also I'm only spending 4-5 hrs. a day to study not the 8 hrs. I did previously. Good luck and God Bless I really think UWorld is the best.

    I say go to Med/Surg period. If your not happy why stay and torture yourself. If your optimistic like me then do what it best for you. It's closer to home, & you will get the experience that you want & need. Your not the first nurse to quit during orientation. and you sure won't be the last. forget about the what ifs. In life we have to take chances. Nothing is going to happen to your new job, & nothing is going to happen to your hubby. You have to speak life over your situation. No offense to anyone but this is my opinion. Now the part about burning bridges sometimes it's not what you know it's who you know. If you have always been a good employee it won't be forgotten. Make sure you resign & speak to HR or your HR generalist about your issues & concerns & find out if you would be eligible for rehire. There are many hospitals you can go work for. Go for it and let us know what happened! Congrats....

    First off I am a former student of Broward College nursing program who now desires to or shall I say attend Keiser University Fort. Lauderdale campus. I do not feel Keiser is a rip off, actually I considered it as my first choice to do my nursing. Why I decide to go with Broward College is because #1.it was closer to my home and kids. 2. I wanted to experience what Broward College had to offer me regardless of the "nah sayers" (mind you I had heard rumors about that school reputation as well). 3. Cost wasn't a big issue for me. Well Broward College was not for me. Maybe one day I'll share my experience on allnurses.com.

    Therefore Keiser it is. I start Monday I have to take computers and redo Micro other than that, they accepted all my credits and I will not pay more that $35,000 give or take scholarships that I plan to receive. Contact Keiser and see for yourself.

    When I hear the term rip off. I assume the school you, I, or anyone goes too will experience something like this. Said school signs you up, and not teach you anything, you graduate no job, no career, and a hefty student loan too pay back. Or.... That's just way to much money for a ADN degree.

    Well I do know this. If nursing is for you; you would want to research what school is best for you. Cost is something to think about. However when I chose Keiser I went to the campus and did a tour. I stopped current students (nursing) and asked them how do they feel about the school, education, the cost, etc. I received all good feedback. I also stopped by Dade Medical College, FCC, as well. I didn't like it at all. I visited Keiser 2 times before I made my decision and I happy with it. I plan on getting a Masters in Nursing so I know I'm going to have owe a lot of money, but I also know that I will also make enough to pay it off. With my high earning job, and years of experience that all started at Keiser. I'm not just saying this I've been on this site long enough to know the ends and outs about nursing, and besides I worked in a one of Broward's best Healthcare system and trust and believe me. All there looking for is a Florida Board Of Nursing License with your name on it. Not Keiser, Broward College, Nova etc. They don't care what you GPA is either because in nursing the saying is C's get degrees.

    Best of luck to you and I hope you find a school that is worth your time and money.
