- May 22, '12 by SLD79Hello Remigirl, I think you should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I know some things about the program as I am a student currently in the program.
- Sep 8, '12 by trisha21I was accepted into the PN to RN ladder program at Baker College of Auburn Hills. I have heard great things about how difficult the program is and how well educated the graduates become. It was difficult to get in (over 200 people applied and only 16 entered the PN program) but if you are confident you can get good grades and do well on the Kaplan it is great. My gpa was 4.0 with an 86% on the Kaplan. I know accredidation might seem to you very important, but speaking from a business owner perspective, I don't look to see if my nurses schools are accrediated, I look to see that they know their stuff. If you chose Baker I'm sure you will have great knowledge when you're done if you apply yourself.
- Sep 11, '12 by balatroAs someone already pointed out - you shouldn't worry about nursing program losing students, but rather look at their first time NCLEX pass rate.
It's common practice that if a student stands a rather high probability of failing the NCLEX, the school WON'T graduate them. Why? If enough students fail the NCLEX, it could hurt the school's accreditation/the number of applications they receive for the next classes.
In some states (I'm currently in NC), it's quite common for them to take in 72 students (an example) and only permit 58 to graduate so that they may take the NCLEX. Some of the state schools are even rougher on their students -- taking in 200+ into the pre-nursing program (the first 2 years of a BSN program) and only having 100'ish or so permitted entry into clinical years, naturally some swap majors on their own as well.
- Sep 12, '12 by roser13Quote from trisha21I don't understand - surely you care if "your" nurses are NCLEX-licensed? no one sits for the NCLEX without graduating from an accredited nursing school.?....I know accredidation might seem to you very important, but speaking from a business owner perspective, I don't look to see if my nurses schools are accrediated, I look to see that they know their stuff.
- Mar 7 by lovestitchDid you ever find another program in michigan Im attending baker clinton township and have the same problem. When I regestered I was told by the staff they are accredited but later find out that they are not and they are in the process of getting accredation if having accredation is not important why not be honest about it.
