UMKC Accelerated BSN

  1. I have submitted applications to multiple nursing programs around KC (UMKC being one of them)! The more I look into them, the more I am leaning towards UMKC being my top choice. I applied for their Accelerated BSN program.

    Any current students/recent grads want to share their experience?! I know NCLEX pass rates were below 80% the year before last, but have gone up to 87% since then. Additionally they have close to 1200 clinical hours their students are required to do.
    What is the class schedule/teachers like?

    Did anyone in the accelerated program work during this time? And when do they send out acceptance letters??

    Thanks so much!!

    My friend went to UMKC's accelerated nursing and worked part-time when she went. I think she worked like 10-15 hours per week, but I'm not sure. She got her acceptance letter in March I think. However, there have been a few posts on here about the UMKC program possibly losing their accreditation. I haven't really researched it that much besides reading this article Mid-semester rule changes at UMKC School of Nursing surprise, upset students |

    So basically if their NCLEX pass rates are below 80% 3 years in a row they are at jeopardy of losing accreditation.

    It looked like their pass rates fell below 80% one year but have been above 85% the last few. Got this off the missouri state board of nursing website.
