    I have a friend that graduated from William Carey a few years ago. I've heard both good and bad things about the program. I've heard that it's very student friendly, instructors really seem to care and are willing to work with students. I've also heard that a lot of their graduates have a hard time passing NCLEX. I don't know how true that is, but that is just what I have heard.

    Thanks for the reply. Do you know what your friends GPA was? Also, did she/he take a pre-reqs at WC?

    A friend of mine is doing their RN-BSN program right now. She says she likes it better than what USA and USM had to offer. I'm going to do the RN-BSN at USM this spring.

    I have a friend that graduated from WC about 4 years ago, but she took her prereqs at JD though. She said she enjoyed it and they really made an effort to work with her when she had her daughter prematurely in the middle of the semester. From talking to her it seemed like they had better clinical opportunities than we had at USM. I've heard both good and bad things about WC nursing school, but I guess every school has it's quirks. Good luck to you.

    Im attending WCU right now. Im between both new orleans and gulfport campuses where I live...so I take classes at both. I know that the new orleans director said NO is the only one with 100% pass rate...that was 6 months ago. Do you like it?Which campus are you at? How are your clinical experiences?

    with pass rates u must consider how many times the people took the NCLEX before they pass the NCLEX. 100% pass rate indeed for my class years ago, but 40% of the class failed NCLEX first try

    some of the teachers care, some of them should not even be allowed to teach (or what they call teaching, its more like showing up to class and reading pre made powerpoints)

    I think regardless of the teaching situation at any school, you can learn what you need to know by simply reading and studying

    I have changed my mind since then. I'll be going to do the RN-BSN at WC, but I don't know when yet. Money issues...

    exactly what bucknangler stated, but i'll add way to expensive. not to hijack a thread but you need to be aware of what the new healthcare reform is going to do to the new nurses within the next 2-4 yrs. jobs and pay may become pretty bleak...its tight times out there for new and experienced nurses now. just please do some research on this issue before you drop thousands of $ and hrs. good luck.
