I came back to this thread to say. I finally graduated nursing school. Though I did not make it at BC. I made it, I am happy and that's all that matters. If anyone wants to take on nursing as a career. Fight for it don't give up no matter what. Now I'm off to study for my NCLEX and August 2017 I will start my BSN portion.
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.
Here you go and this can help anyone here in this situation.
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.
It's a 2 year program. Unless you have some of the preq's done that can possible transfer over.
Almost one year later and I am still happy about my decision to join this program. I have become great friends with the poster Ready2BaRN. We are both doing well. I didn't realize I commented on this post as well a year ago. To those reading this do your research and if you find this school (campus) to be the right fit go ahead take a leap of faith. I have 9 months left. I can finally see the light.
My school used the Hesi entrance test. I did not take it with them because I took it with another school previously.
Don't give up. I haven't taken the NCLEX yet but, I know someone who took it 5 times as well. She passed on the 6th try. It must be frustrating, but I say be encourage. Delay does not mean denial. Hugs to you and keep studying. The fact that you have not given up means your a fighter and you want this. It will happen soon. Best of luck and God bless.
@wanttobern classes varies. Some NU Nursing classes are twice a week and others are one. Perquisites are once a week but, all of them are subject to change. Clinicals are done at Nursing Homes, Rehabilitation Centers and Critical Care is done at Memorial. Everything is working out for the best at ITT and I still like it. I hope you will too.
Congratulations and Good Luck. @Tprodgers as always it's always negative and positives to nursing schools you just have to make up your mind and do what is best for you.
I attend Davie campus in Fort Lauderdale. Currently in Funds 2 getting ready for Med Surg. in the fall yeah..I plan on waiting a year to begin my BSN program. From there I plan to move up to MSN or DNP. I work already in a hospital that I love so I plan on staying there. In order to reach these goals I will continue to study hard and engage in resources that will help me pass the exit exams every quarter. A lot of students don't realize that its more to do besides the assignments on the syllabus. My cohort doesn't practice many rationales. I try to explain that part but they think I over do it. Any who my favorite books to help me succeed are Mary Ann Hogan reviews and Rationales and Success books Davis, Nugent and of course Saunders Nclex. This is my second nursing program and I'm doing so much better than my former college. Good luck in your classes.
Just dropping in and thought I would let anyone in the South Florida (Ft. Lauderdale) area know that, I am happy so far. I'm 4 weeks into the semester and I am doing great. Compared to the previous ADN program I was in. We use most of the same books my former community college uses. The instructors actually have time for you, and I leave the school feeling like I have learned something, and I can confidently ask for help. All smiles here.
If applications are low shouldn't that be a indicator that changes need to be made? If you look on other posts from other institutions in the south Florida area no one has as much negative comments as BC. I too have expressed and revealed my experience on here but I watch what I say because this is a public forum and you never know who is watching @Fearless_leader. You do not want what you say on here to hinder your chances of continuing your education at another institution.
Again, if you frequent this thread as you say, you'd know I'm NOT a North student. I'm Central. 2nd, your disrespectful nature is possibly a reason you are no longer in BC. The post was meant to let you know that there ARE students who are afraid of this program and have withdrawn their application because of long shpiels like yours. I don't care if you do or don't apologize because in the end of the day, i know my intentions, which have been to help these future student nurses. It's one thing to share your experience, but another to blatantly scare some students. Maybe you can share some good experiences. Maybe tone down the attitude as well.
I am a lioness at times, but your post had no optimism. Can a student get a perfect score? Yes. It has happened. Happened to me. Don't attack me because my statement was meant as a sort of "yellow light". Chill.
