Carrington College Reno

  1. 3
    Just wanted to say that I was a part of the first graduating class from Carrington College (formerly Apollo College) in Reno. There were 19 of us who graduated. We have all taken the NCLEX and can now boast that we have a 100% first time pass rate!!!!!!! Also, everyone who wanted a job got a job. We are all so grateful to the wonderful staff who pushed us, we could not have done it without them! Once again a 100% pass rate!!!!

    Congratulations indiejonesRN!

    I'm flying down to Reno for the information session and HESI test, but the wait is killing me. Could you please share with us your experience at Carrington? How was your schedule for the week? Did you feel prepared at the end of the program to take the NCLEX?

    Thank you!

    Hi jillane2011,
    How did the visit to Carrington go? The cost makes me nervous so I haven't gone in yet, what did you find out? Have they already accepted their fall class? When does it start? Thanks for any info you have!

    indiejonesRN,

    if you don't mind me asking, what was your score on the HESI A2 test for the Math, Reading, and Vocabulary? I'm applying to Carrington, and they said they're only accepting 32 students so I'm curious.

    Thank You!

    Hi Bristowa!

    I attended their info session and went along for the tour. I'm in love with the campus, away from distraction (which is perfect for me) and the simulation lab is beautiful!! The cut off date is July 22, and they send out letters July 29. They start Aug. 29. They accept students after an:

    interview
    letter to admissions
    copy of hs diploma/ged
    background check
    drug screen

    and most importantly....

    a min. score of 75% (Math, Reading, Vocabulary) on the HESI A2.

    I didn't realize that private schools are just as competitive! Since they're only accepting 32 students, with the highest score on HESI A2 + after meeting the requirements above. I just wish it wasn't 48K but it'll all be worth it.
