    for anyone trying to get into harcum or already been accepted make sure you ask about the new policy of ATI tests during your program and about the exit ATI exam you might find it interesting

    Oh my God! Did anyone see the NCLEX-RN performance of first time candidates in Pennsylvania who completed NCLEX in the U.S, Harcum has the lowest passing rate in Pennsylvania at 63%.

    [color=#000]hi,

    i spoke to the nursing program today about ati and not to be sarcastic but it is what it is. a lot of schools are doing the ati testing. drexel in particular is the same way for the ace program and they want to make sure we pass the boards on the first try so their stats are not affected by unprepared students. i know for a fact that drexel will not let you take your boards until you pass the ati exit with a 90% or so. you can read about it yourself and how some of those students are having to do remedial work. harcum needs to overcome their provisional status and low pass rate and if this is their way of doing it then so be it good for them. no one is forced to attend harcum.. hey we are going to be nurses dealing with people's lives and that should not be taken lightly. we all need to be prepared and i will do whatever it takes to pass those boards especially on the first try. good luck..

    i know i may be too late with this post because you may have already started the evening nursing program.....drexel and harcum are 2 different programs........first let me start by saying yes drexel makes you past the hesi before being able to take the nclex, but you can take the hesi as many times as you want.....harcums new policy states if you fail the exit exam twice you are asked to take an alternative degree, which means if you dont get a 72% on the exit exam on your second try, you can not take the nclex. so how do you become a rn? you have to go to nursing school all over again, and pay all over again. so i can only imagine the look on a persons face who takes the exit exam for the second time and gets a 70%....although according to ati if you get a 70 on the exit exam you have an 88% chance of passing the nclex.....good luck.

    Hello NENurse,

    I too will be attending in the evening at Harcum, this coming May.
    I look forward to hearing what others have to say. I work with one nurse who just graduated last year and she thought it was hard. I do no that the books are not included in the tuition and you have to buy everything seperately. That's all I learned, she didn't get into any specifics.

    I have also been accepted to the evening program. I have not made my decision on where to go yet, hopefully in the next week. The provisional status really scares me. I have questioned the status, and was told the provisional status will remain in place until October 2012, at which time the Pennsylvania State Board will examine their NCLEX-RN first time pass rate for the past year to determine if its 80% or higher. I was told that the last quarter of 2011, they were at 77.7%, and so far the Decembner graduates have all passsed on the first try 100%, but some have still not taken it yet.
