    Now that you're almost graduating, and having to look back over the course of this last year -- what were some things about the program (profs, classes,...etc) you really liked and disliked. Can you emphasize more about the dislikes and what recommendations you would make if you were to teach the incoming class?

    I graduated from Chamberlain-BSN programs and I got one of three positions offered against 26 other candidates, 3 months before graduation, in a PICU. My classmates have all found jobs in various large St. Louis (including Barnes, SLU Children's, Cardinal Glennon and St. Johns's in ICU's and ED's). I am not sure where your stepmom works, but my "word" is just as credible. Just thought I would put this information out there for all of those reading this post.

    Hi

    I saw your response regarding nursing schools in St. Louis area........I attend Lutheran school of nursing (which is diploma prog) but our credits do transfer. Does your mother consider any graduates from our school? Thanks.
    How long is Lutheran's waiting list? Is it hard to get in? I'm considering attending and would be greatful for any info you can provide. Thank you in advance.

    Trying to stay as objective as possible, i would try other schools first. LSN lab facilities, etc are not modern and you get very little, if any practice time for labs compared to other schools. i was very disappointed in their program

    I am about to finish my Bachelor's in Business and have decided I would like to pursue becoming a RN. Since I've already been in school for 4 years I would like to do that as quickly as possible. I see that most schools offer accelerated programs. I also am not sure if I am missing some programs because when I have googled schools I think I've found most but my friend goes to Central Methodist University in Fayette and it never showed in the results. I didn't know if maybe it wasn't accredited or something. I can go to school in either St. Louis or the Columbia, MO area where I live now.

    Could some of you experts please enlighten me as to what schools in the St. Louis and Columbia, MO areas are good programs with good reps and what I should possibly stay away from or that are not accredited??? I need advice.

    Also, many of these programs seem to want you to apply very very far in advance. I was hoping to take my science pre-reqs while waiting for the session I will take to start but if I have to have them done by the time I apply it may be a long time. Anyways, that's my issue I guess.

    Any advice would be SOOO helpful!!! THANK YOU!!!!
    Did you pick a program yet? If so, which one?

    In terms of reputable schools, Maryville U. is way up there in terms of NCLEX scores (most recent: 96%) and good reputation for their BSN program. Something to consider.

    I just registered yesterday for their RN-BSN program at Chamberlain. I'm interested to hear an advice or comments you have about their program.
