    I'd have to agree with you about the instructors. I would much rather attend a traditional RN program but unfortunately, I do not have the time for it. I have a child to take care of and I've been unemployed for a year now. I have to take the LPN route so I can support my family ASAP. I still don't think we will see eye to eye about the exit exam. Some students retain the information they learn for the short term. Pass their tests and forget it. I feel like an exit exam prevents unprepared students from entering the field. Also, the school obviously uses their passing rate to encourage prospective students to enroll. If I were the director of admissions, I would use it to my advantage too. A passing rate is a passing rate. It doesn't matter how they got it. It means that the school isn't throwing out unprepared students left and right. I would trust that a graduate of a school with a 95% passing rate will take good care of me. I would feel comfortable having a nurse from that school watching over me. Either the students know the information or they don't. If they don't know the information, they're in no position to graduate.

    No school graduates "unprepared" students since they all must pass the NCLEX. And I really can't take any NCLEX passage rate from a NS that uses exit exams seriously. In a way, they are cooking their books, just like Enron and Lehman Brothers.

    The NCLEX is tough. The exit exam is an essential part of your nursing education. I took my entrance exam at Center of Allied Health and Nursing Education today and got a 93 and 95 in Reading Comprehension and Math. I asked about the exit exam and the admissions rep was honest with me. 40% of students do not pass the exit exam on the first try. Nothing in exam is new..everything in it was studied during the program. It's a matter of applying yourself and studying for the exam. That exit exam is the reason why they have a 97% pass rate on the NCLEX. I personally think it's a good thing.

    In The Center for Allied Health only about 2% of people pass the exit on the 1st try!!!!! So i dont know who told you that 60% pass on the 1st try. Let me tell you its a lie. About 50% of my class still did not pass exit and some took it 2 times and some 3. You get 4 chance. Just because you did good on the entrance does not mean you will do good on the exit. Its a very hard school to get out of. Good Luck.

    I would avoid any school that has an exit exam. In a worst case scenario, you pass all your classes, fail the exit exam, give up a year of your life, are out $20k, and have no diploma to show for it.
    That happened to my friend at the center for Allied Health and Education. She is out of the money and she lost 18 months of her life. And she is not stupid. But most schools have exit exams and only give students 2 chances to pass. Allied Health and education gives you 4 chances.

    Exit is not easy but it is an honest indicator of how well you will do on NCLEX. Whoever said 2% is WRONG. In my group of 15 only 2 did not pass on first try.

    Just to add to all of this, I currently attend the center for allied, And i am almost done with my classes, js1979lpn i understand where you are coming from, but i just want u to also know that alot of things has changed since u left. ALOT of people have been passing their exits, and the exit is harder than the NCLEX, but it is designed to motivate u. If the exit wasnt so tough to the point that it made u study so hard, the NCLEX that u passed would have been totally difficult for u. They are basically preparing ur mind not only for the exit, but also for the NCLEX. And if u struggled and passed, why shouldnt another person be able to do it. I don't think its a good thing to discourage people, if anything, let them know it is absolutely difficult, but POSSIBLE. Afterall u made it through. And i do know people that passed their exits and also their nclex with no problem. The school has encorporated new things that is really helpful. And by the way, No LPN program is easy, Nursing is not easy. So whoever wants to go to The center, i say go; but you have to be very motivated. Am sure the same goes for any other LPN school in the whole of the country, or else it will be considered BAD TRAINING!

    Hi, good luck to you. I recently started at the Center but I'm a little disappointed thus far. I've spoken to several people that are farther along than my self and we all feel that the teaching isn't where it needs to be. I also see a lot of favoritism but that could be anywhere. The administration is on top of everything as you will probably see. I'd like to hear what you think.
