I was accepted into an RN program at a community college in the state that I live in. I attended a mandatory meeting last week. At the meeting, my cohort found out that the schools
RN program was placed on a warning status with the intent to close back in February of this year. Prior to applying to this school, I had no knowledge of this. It wasn't on the schools website, nor the link that was provided on the website that takes you to the state's official website for all of the ADN programs and their NCLEX scores. Had I known this, I wouldn't have applied to this program. From what our class gathered at the meeting, the program was put on a warning status due to it's curriculum (i.e. instructors not having the right accreditation, preceptorship, NCLEX scores being below 75% for 2 prior years). The BRN approved of a new curriculum that my cohort in the spring will be starting. The program's director will meet with the BRN again in January to see if they will be removed from warning status, or remain on it. I'm a little unsure of this program after hearing about this. Their NCLEX scores have improved greatly for the 2016-2017 year. It just makes me nervous going through with this program but I have applied to so many schools and been rejected. Has anyone else been in this position or been in a similar situation? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I'm so torn on this decision I need to make before I am registered for my classes.
