    So I came back to read the comments because I knew the negativity would be real. It's saddens me to see people attack others who choose institutions to best fit their needs that's how it was for me. When my local community college did me in. Anyway..... So yesterday was a trying day because it was the day my class names were to be sent to the state and they were for sure. I'm not going into details on how I know, and that's not possible because the school was closed. I was there and I got my transcripts so did my classmates. Thank God. To top it off I helped my classmates behind some of them get letters signed to test out for LPN again I'm not going into that, but it's a special form required by the state to be signed by the school. I did a lot of leading yesterday and hell of alot fighting. That's just me though.

    I am am thankful Application put into the state, fingerprints are getting done this morning, NCLEX will be paid soon and yes I still have my job waiting bloop bloop.

    As as for the poster I am so sorry this all happened. This school was 50 years old so it was a great school in some areas. Unfortunately cooperate got very greedy and instead of putting the monies into the school they let the little people take the big hit. Never give up on nursing. If you read my previous posts I fought tooth and nail to the very end literally. If I find out more info I would be willing to share. To anyone. I can't even be happy really because this is so emotionally. I made great relationships with people behind me and I feel so sad.

    Yes I am pleased because I did the work. The same books and testing systems we used just like everyone else. I am pleased because my professors are some of the Best Nurses that have degrees from some of the best schools in my area, and they taught me very well. I am pleased because I went through the nursing struggle like everyone else, and the struggle is real. I am pleased because I graduated and will receive my degree, and I am very proud of it and I am not ashamed. I will pass the NCLEX because I was smart enough to pass my tests in class. I passed my Exit Hesi, first try 1193, and I am very confident.

    A bit premature you say! With the sweetest voice I have right now I'm not living in a fairy tale land nor did I just come from the planet Mars. My 2 PP post says a lot about how I feel. I just completed my program 2 days ago. So of course this is upsetting. At the same time the doors are not closed my grades are in the system, and I have the faith that everything will be complete for me and my graduating class. Most schools don't give you your degree until after your ceremony so yeah that takes a while. In addition I work for one of the best healthcare systems that's not premature its a fact. Yes I will become a RN and that's a fact.

    I have always heard bad things about ITT and other nursing schools so to each their own rather accredited or not. I made a choice and I am happy with that decision.

    You better believe I will be back. Jer. 29:11

    If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything. Your entitled to your opinion and so am I. My faith is to strong to feel defeated.

    I just finished class Thursday and I am nervous. I completed the ADN program and I am praying to God that they hurry up and send my name to the Florida board of nursing. I also inquired about my transcripts I need to load up on at least 4 of them. I completed my preq's from a community college and got into the program and it did not work out. So I ended up at ITT Breckinridge. I have come this far and all I want is my name to be sent off to the state. Grades close on the 5th of September, and my name will be sent to Florida Board of Nursing.

    I must say this and I'm only talking about my "program". I really was pleased with ITT-Breckinridge program at the Fort. Lauderdale campus. My Professors were excellent. I was able to get the skills and tools that I needed to make it this far and pass. The school is expensive but like I said I came in with preq's and I got a $25,000 scholarship. Therefore I won't be paying $50,000+ which I know is ridiculous for an ASN/ADN. I have about $13,000 in loans and I am cool with that. I wanted too attend another state university or college but once you Withdraw and or failed a science attempt it's really hard to get into one. That's how I ended up at ITT and pretty much a lot of students did to. I hate when I see people post "Poor unexpected Student" or believe me and my peers have no skills and didn't research. I did my research and to be honest at the time my school "Fort. Lauderdale" was in very good standing. Most of us are 2nd degree students or LPN's we are no less different than any other nursing student.

    ITT corporate office made a big mess of things and some of my classmates may end up without a degree. I pray to God that they will make it through and finish there or at another program. As for me I'm praying that God will allow this school to

    1. Send my name to the state so I can test for NCLEX. 2.Release my transcripts 3.Give me my degree.

    I have applied to UTA so I can be locked into a BSN program. I have a good chance of getting in because again I have credits from my community college, and they do allow you start if you haven't taken your NCLEX yet. You do however need to pass it at some point before you are able to continue on.

    This is just a big mess. I was so happy I finished and I can't even celebrate because of all this. I can't even sleep thinking about this. I just have to keep telling myself God didn't bring me this far to leave me. I pray for us all.

    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.

    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.

    Hi Amglover93,
    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.
