    I know Allina Health always has a statement that reads: "Allina Health does not hire new grads from all academic institutions. Many proprietary on-line schools do not meet Allina Health's standards due to the minimal oversight of the student's clinical experience, the high faculty/student ratio, and the lack of focus on national certification standards in the curriculum" in their NP job postings. For what it's worth, both Allina Health and Mayo are based in Minnesota. A well known proprietary on-line school is based in Minnesota.

    As well as the other diploma mill "schools."

    I wish more employers would do this.

    I went to a reasonably well regarded B&M school 20 years ago, but still consider myself almost entirely self taught.

    Had I graduated with only the knowledge from that program, it would have been a sad joke.

    I wish they all would, since the accrediting agencies dont seem concerned enough to stop it.
