Anyone a student at Kaplan during their online RN program in Florida

    I just starting the RN program at Kaplan in Florida and I just wanted to know if anyone can shed any light on this program because I just recently heard that they were on probation. I do not want to waste any more precious time if I do not have to.

    1) On January 26, 2012, Kaplan University received a notice from the Florida Board of Nursing regarding the Associate's degree in nursing program at the Pembroke Pines facility. The letter required Kaplan University to appear at a hearing on February 1, 2012, to discuss the performance of program graduates on the national nursing certifying exam (NCLEX), which has fallen below the required standard. As a result of the hearing, the program was placed on probationary status until the exam pass-rate improves. Under the Florida Board of Nursing Rules, a failure to achieve the required NCLEX passage standard in either of the next two calendar years could result in the program losing its license to operate in Florida.

    Yes they certainly are on "probation" by the FL BON. If you go there, you'll have close to a $40K student loan debt if not more. The program is horrible, there are TONS of nursing school and programs in S Fla. Do not waste your time there, honestly.
