University of Phoenix LPN to BSN Prorgam in Colorado

  1. 0
    hello,
    I know that there are a lot of old posts on UOP LPN to BSN program, but I couldn't find that many that where up to date. I would like to start the topic by stating that I am a current LPN who is in a jam. I am trying to decide between going back to a community college to get my RN and then anther school to get my BSN or going to university of phoenix and going right from LPN to BSN. I have talked to the school but would like some real feedback from current or recently graduated student that have passed the NCLEX.
    Here are my questions.
    1.) are graduates taken seriously and do they have the same opportunities as students who go to a traditional program?
    2.) what is the current NCLEX pass rate? ( I was having a hard time finding anything online).
    3.) do you feel like it is a quality education with instructors that care and are helpful?
    4.) are the ATI tests the same as a HESI? how do they work with the program as far as pass rate and grading with the classes?
    5.) what is the drop out rate of students?
    6.) I know that nursing school is hard and you get out of it what you put into it but do you feel that the one class at a time is a more manageable work load then what a community college would have.
    7.) do you think it is better to go this route or do go to a community college and then do an online BSN program?

    I think that is it for now. would love all the help I can get. thank you !

    Here are my questions.
    1.) are graduates taken seriously and do they have the same opportunities as students who go to a traditional program?

    For the most part, yes. There are a couple hospitals in Denver that do not hire UoP grads, nor will they hire anyone who has done a LPN-BSN or RN-BSN program. I don't know why.....one HR told my aunt it is because they don't know if you really did the class work, or if someone else did it for you. (They also, apparently, don't realize you HAVE to go to class and clinicals. The LPN-BSN program is not 100% online.)
    2.) what is the current NCLEX pass rate? ( I was having a hard time finding anything online).

    For 2013, it is 80% of what's been reported....you can find the info on DORA website.

    3.) do you feel like it is a quality education with instructors that care and are helpful?

    absolutely!
    4.) are the ATI tests the same as a HESI? how do they work with the program as far as pass rate and grading with the classes?

    I never took HESI, so I really can't say.

    5.) what is the drop out rate of students?

    Don't know that, either.

    6.) I know that nursing school is hard and you get out of it what you put into it but do you feel that the one class at a time is a more manageable work load then what a community college would have.

    Yes. Much easier to focus on 1 class than 2-3!

    7.) do you think it is better to go this route or do go to a community college and then do an online BSN program?

    Depends on what you want to do. I was originally on the wait list at AIMS (for 2 years) and decided I didn't want to wait anymore!

    I think that is it for now. would love all the help I can get. thank you !
    Hope this helps!
