    I am actually in the first class in the University of Southern Nevada. Its a great school, though it is expensive it is worth the money, I started in April of 06 and I graduate in Oct of 07, can't wait. Its a nice school, the instructors work with the students and the school recently hired an assistant dean and other faculty members that will help with the accreditation process, its not going to be a big deal. go to usn.edu and check it out!!

    USN is expensive because it is a private institution. Dee is right they haven't graduated a class yet so they have no statistics to report. USN was only a pharmacy school, and they decided to expand and add a nursing program. The Dean, Dr. Mable Smith started the program from scratch and the first class started in April or May of last year so it is a new program. The way they set up the program is great if you are trying to get into grad school or just want a good GPA. You have your classroom training and your tests, but all tests have to be passed with a 90%. If you don't pass you get 2 chances for remediation in which they basically tutor you on the material and you take the test again. That way everyone who graduates from USN has a 4.0. It's basically pass fail but they don't leave you out to dry. Feel free to ask Dr. Smith all the questions you want, she may seem intimidating at first but she is very nice. She is a lawyer, professor, nurse, and is in the airforce reserve. She has written a lot of articles for nursing journals and has published her own textbook on nursing law.

    can i ask you a question please. I am in the process of filling out my application for the August 2010 class. I am not so sure as for what classes to put down as an "Elective (up to 12 semester hours)-At least three additional college-level (non-remedial) courses that have not been utilized to satisfy any other prerequisite requirement." ? Who i put down those classes that I have "A" on it to have a better chance to get in, such as Microeconomic, Macroeconomic, Exploring Music, or Computer science fundalmental? I am really confuse, wondering if someone can help?

    Dee:
    The University of Southern Nevada has indeed received their national accreditation. As a matter of fact, the site visit notes no recommendations. Excellent reputation. The NCLEX pass rate is at least 84 percent.

    Hi! I was accepted to USN for this upcoming school year but I am apprehensive about the Pass/Fail system. I don't know how a transcript would look to a grad school with a P next to all the courses. You mentioned you get a 4.0 when you graduate from USN, but is this true? Did you notice if your transcript listed a 'P' next to each course you completed?
    I would really appreciate your info as you attended there because I don't have much time to accept or decline their offer and I'm so confused! Thanks in advance!

    Yes, USN is very expensive and hasn't received its national accreditation yet. As for nursing prereq's all of the programs out here require that you complete them first before being accepted into the upper division nursing major. However, many, including my school, Nevada State College, will admit you to the Prenursing major to complete your prereq's. I'm from PA, and even with the out of state tuition, Nevada schools tend to be a good deal.

    hi dee.

    i was just wondering what would be a national accreditation?
    & also if I get my bsn from this college will I be able to go on to a masters at a UC or CSU?
