ARIZONA college in Vegas????

  1. Has anyone heard of Arizona college? I was on the BON website earlier and noticed they have been added as a new nursing program in Vegas offering BSN . They opened in Sep 2015 anybody have any info on this school ? Obviously they're only provisionally approved but any info?)

    Well it is not cheap, at $85,000. here is the link;
    BSN Degree - Important Disclosures | Arizona College

    Here are NCLEX pass rates for programs in Arizona, I'm not sure but are they listed as Arizona Eastern College & Arizona Western College?

    https://www.azbn.gov/Documents/educa...%20Results.pdf

    I see from some of your posts you were HM? now LPN, that is great. Also that you have GI bill, but do be careful which school you pick, especially the NCLEX pass rates, look at the last 5 years, also look for CCNE accreditation for BSN, ACEN accreditation for BSN.
    Feel free to PM me.

    I checked out the page after I saw it on Bon website but it's kinda vauge I think. Hopefully they'll call me so I can get some answers. Yes I was an hm, and if I go to one of the nursing only schools I'll use my gi Bill, but I got an extension on my millennium scholarship so I can get the whole program through that without touching my gi if I go to csn.. But I'm just trying to weigh my options as fast as adn and BSN here in town

    I'm trying to finish up a/p 1/2 and micro this semester before applying. So they are a for profit school? Like Everest and Kaplan?? Also do you or does anyone have info about how licensing works for provisional schools as far as state transferring

    Just don't do it. What happens if they lose that provisional accreditation?

    Yes I need to make sure they have the accreditation a because I'm trying to apply for a commission. That's why I'm conflicted about doing can adn and then bridging later or going straight for an accelerated BSN

    Do you mean apply for a commission as an officer in the military? The entire US military requires nurses be graduates of an ACEN or CCNE accredited program, and the Arizona College website does not list either of those organizations on its list of accreditations (and, if you started soon, they would not be able to get it before you graduated, even if they applied). Further, the list of accreditations it does have make it appear pretty obvious that it is a proprietary (for-profit) school.

    Yea a navy commission. Im navy IRR right now, so I know all the guidelines for getting a commission, I'm just trying to figure out if any of the local nursing programs i.e. Chamberlain roseman touro are worth it or if I should just do can's adn and then bridge to bsn. And I just happened to see this school just opened so was looking for any info on it

    How can u take a&p I and II together? isnt there a prereqs for each one of them!? Are taking them outside of Nevada? It might be hard to. transfer it over even it is a regionally accredited school, and you just have to talk to the school how it works so ur not wasting time, and ended up not getting them transfer over..

    with in regards to ur choice, I say that if you know the guidelines for ur commission, then u know the process of lookong for a school then. Like u know what the they are looking for..
    now if ur concern about if its worth it, if u can pay the high amount of private and A FULL APPROVAL! and goes with the guidelines of your comission then you should get the answer right there... coz like u said u know the guidelines, and then look for those accredition on school, now u found schools thay has those accreditation? Look at what option you want, if the private school goes with the guideline u need and u can afford it THEN GO. since the price seems like not an issue, only u can answer this..

    For me, if it goes to the guidelines I need, and i want to finish faster and price isnt the issue then go ahead, While csn might get competitive its still have an FULL APPROVAL

    Short term courses. Ap1 is the pre req for ap2. I already have ap1 's pre req. so if I take ap1/2 each 7-8 week course I can do them both in one semester. I already checked with csn but like you said they get competitive
