National University review

  1. Has anyone heard about national univ.? What is their reputation? They offer ASN courses for 23 months.

    I want to ask if it would just be advisable to go to CSN (even though their program is longer) since they have a good reputation & have a good NCLEX-passing statistic.

    Thanks.

    Thats a pretty new school. I would assume they would kinks to work out like every new school. I currently go to Apollo, its a 22 month ASN program. When they opened they had things to work out. Personally, I wouldnt want to to be the 1st or 2nd class of a program. They're usually the experimental group on how to arrange lecture, clinicals, etc. Plus it will take them longer to receive full accrediation (because it is a new program).

    These are my thoughts. Good luck to you!

    Hi there everyone! I too am wondering about National! Lol! I didn't even know about them until today- and I didn't know about Apollo until just now. I just joined. It doesn't seem I can send anyone messages. Nicole 2010, would you mind posting a bit about Apollo? I'd really appreciate it. It seems the choices for an Associate's degree here in Vegas is CSN, Apollo and National? Are there more?
    Thank you,
    N

    Hi! I heard about NU through a radio advertisement lol. they recently just started a nursing program in the Los Angeles campus. i went to the orientation and did some research about their accreditation, and they looked legitimate.

    the LA campus has a BSN for around 22-24 months

    Does anyone know how much the BSN program at National University-Los Angeles campus cost. Also do they give credit if your an LVN? any replies would be appreciated.

    Apollo - $45,000.00 all pre-requisites included. All private colleges will cost above and beyond the community college... aren't you reading the posts from other new RN grads unable to find work? I start at CSN in the fall and I am nervous about the loans I will have from that, I can not imagine going private! RN career is not recession proof! READ, READ, READ!
    Choose carefully grasshopper... Lol!

    Is anyone currently in the ASN program and do you like it?
    Does anyone know how many times they allow you to take the TEAS exam within a year?

    Any response is appreciated...thank you!

    You can take the TEAS test only every 6 months. A couple of friends from A&P and Micro did not pass the first time around so they tried to take it at NSU to qualify for spring semester at CSN but they will not accept the results any earlier than the 6 month waiting period. So, be sure you are ready, take it early, it is not hard. I took it early to avoid the pressure of performance and passed on the first try, but I had time to repeat if nec for the semester I wanted to enter school.

    Does that TEAS rule apply to National University also?
