    You should really do your HW when considering any school, especially SPSON. The administration and faculty change the rules as they please and are the most disorganized staff I have ever seen. They routinely lose transcripts, medical records - without explanation or apology. They are more concerned with wearing a uniform than providing a uniformed approach to their program. They, by the way, are NOT an accredited school and are currently in "candidancy status" who knows how long that takes! I cant imagine a governing board granting them accredidation because they are so unorganized. And be forwarned of them enticing you with a medical assistant program for approx $25K! Plus their tuition is through the roof - currently ~$600 plus per credit!!! They must think they are Columbia. There are plenty of options out there to get your degree from an accredited institution that you can graduate from. Buyer BEWARE!
    I am surprised that they have candidacy. I complained about unwritten policies, not crediting my account overcharging, doublecharging, not showing me my test, I was a 3.95 student and after started complaining then I started failing. I wanted to see my quiz and test they did not show them to me. I also complained about unequipped lab and telling me that they were nln accredited and showing me plaque on wall in lobby.

    I believe the post said they are in "candidacy status". It's like Magnet; many apply, but only the ones who have their stuff together get status. And, candidacy status (for both NLNAC and Magnet) take a good 2 years to go through. It is a painstaking task. Schools who have had prior status can lise status (by not "passing" reaccreditation, just like Magnet).

    i got into St. Pauls for January 2012 and i thought it was great but all this negative feed back makes me think i shouldn't go there. Can anyone help me? Is it really that bad? I was also curious about financial aid. Has anyone gotten full aid ?

    I went to the SI location to check it out. Sounded like a great place to attend nursing school. It's a very pricey school, luckily I have a lot of science and liberal arts credits which can help lower tuition if I do attend. Oh btw tuition is about 41000.

    You have two choices: you either listen to what the naysayers here say (and keep in mind that peolple LOVE to complain on the Internet, as well as complain when Things don't go their way) and don't go. Or, you go. If this is your only option (because you can't get in anywhere else, which is a common thing at schools like this), then you really need to decide of you can handle all the drama of a place like this. But just remember this: NO nursing school is going to be a cakewalk. Every school expects their students to work, no one is going to hand you your degree, whether you pay $100 or $600 per credit. Someone compared the tuition to Columbia; I'm not comparing the quality of the schools (I can't really speak to either one firsthand), but my guess is that it's no piece of cake there either.

    I have also read the reviews on this school and was very skeptical until i visited the school my self because my friend was telling me such good things about it. At first I thought it was gonna be a run down mess until i went. Well fortunately for me St.Pauls school of nursing has moved to a new location on queens Blvd that is just magnificent. i dont know if any of you has had the pleasure of visiting but i loved it they have life like dolls. The tuition is very high (41000) but you get what you pay for. The comment about them letting every one in is un true because i had to take 2 test. One test (12 mins long) was on the spot at orientation you have to get 16 questions right with in 12 minutes to see if you can pass the 2nd test (4 hours long) called the hesi exam you have to pass both before you are even given the proper paperwork to proceed. I scored high in reading and passed in math lucky me. Now i have to do a background check drug test and physical. Oh please do not lie about if you went to a college before this one or not because your financial aid says it all and they will find out and your nursing license can be pulled because being a nurse is supposed to promote honesty.if you lie about that they figure what else can you be lying about....

    Congrats I'm sure it's a good school and I was really excited when I got accepted, but the tuition was too rich for my blood and I really disliked the fact that I could not do the program accelerated. It HAS to be two years even if you've completed your prerequisites (meaning you'd have to retake them!).. I'm sure this school will work out for others it just wasn't for me.. I'm happy with the school choice I made. Whatever floats your boat I say!
