    i graduated from cnm last april (2009) - i have heard good things and bad things about unm and cnm. unm has always had a competitive nursing program and i knew it was hard to get into. it is true that you have to reapply every semester if you aren't accepted the first time. however, coming from cnm's a.d.n program with a ba in history, i found the program to be successful and i learned a lot from my clinical instructors. just ask lots of questions. i took some months off after i graduated from cnm to study for the nclex, which i passed the first time. every school is different in the way they approach the curriculum. stick it out at cnm - get the best grades you can and then jump into the unm accelerated bsn program. it's just a suggestion. in fact, i'm thinking of going to unm for a masters rather than at the university of phoenix. haven't made up my mind yet where i want to go. good luck to you in whatever you decide to do.

    i compared u of p and unm, unm won hands down. up is horribly expensive, does things in short bites as opposed to using an entire semester. i did the online masters in nursing ed. the faculty bends over backward to to make sure you get what you need. i got to know several face to face by going to alb. once in a while to discuss stuff, but they were always accesable by email or phone as well.

    people, the answer is easy. check out the UNM NCLEX passage rates, they are **** poor. having attended several high-end universities, i can testify to the incredibly poor quality of education at UNM. the university, in general, will never break into the nations top 100 list, and the nursing school will certainly stay near the bottom. it is a very non-dynamic institution with many professors that have not cared for patients in nearly 15 yrs. terrible profs. look at the NCLEX rates! it tells it all. crappy school. do the research. the schools cheap for a reason.
