When you say that they were let out of their contracts, just to clarify, do you mean to say those students were released entirely or then stuck with the bill for school and no job? In a sense if they were let out of their contracts because of a hiring freeze but Rockhurst didn't slam them with the bill that would not be horrible...not totally wonderful...but not as horrible as being surprised by the huge bill at the end of it all.
Let out of their contracts meaning they don't have to pay RCON anything, but still had to pay taxes on half of the tutition which is 24K. It is to be filed with their taxes as a scholarship.
And they were free to work for whomever they want. But I think because of this, these students may be blackballed from HCA facilities, although due to no fault of their own.
And the program is 2.5 years, including your sophomore year and the classes at Rockhurst.
I would look into UMKC's school of nursing, although it's 3 years, that last year is spent entirely doing clinicals, as if you were in a residency program. They really prepare their BSN's for transition to the real world of nursing, unlike other BSN programs that I know of. I felt RCON prepared me to pass NCLEX and that's it.
