Phillips Beth Israel 2013 Applicants

  1. In the process of putting together my application for PBISN 2013. Who else is applying? I'm curious to hear from current students and recent grads--what was your background? Your NLN scores/GPA? Thoughts on the program?

    Good luck everyone!

    I applied to 5 schools as well. Did either of you apply to Touro College? They are transitioning to a BSN program this summer and I already got my acceptance.

    I had no idea! Are they accredited?

    They aren't accredited and I fear jobs won't recognize a school that isn't.

    Touro? They are accredited right now as an ADN program and the BSN program accrediation will be awarded in June.

    They are accredited by the department of education but not the ccne or the nlnac.

    Saw that and now Touro has their website set up is very misleading. *ALL* places of higher/secondary education must be accredited by NYS in order to be legally open and accept students. Saying they are accredited by the State means something but not that much.

    Thanks for looking that up. I am not sure how much that weights and what changes when the accreditation goes through in June. I do know that their graduates have gotten jobs at top hospitals from people that do not work at the school. They are on rolling admissions so I applied just to have another option and I heard back within 2-3 weeks.

    I guess my concern isn't whether or not I will be able to find a job in NY, but being nationally accredited means that the school will be recognized anywhere. Should my family and I decide to leave NY in the future, I don't want to get to my destination only to find out that the school I went too isn't recognized.


    Congratulations though...wow 2-3 weeks! You're gpa and nln score must be great!
