    yes, Im going to go to Carlow. I sent in my deposit today. I wanted to go to Mercy so that I can get more clinical hours and finish sooner. Carlow has a good nursing program though. i will just be in school a lot longer.

    navydude... I was accepted to Carlow last year, paid my deposit and everthing. But then I found out I got into Mercy and I decided to go with Mercy.

    Last year Carlow only was only provisionally accredited, basicly they were on probation for low NCLEX pass rates. I'm not sure if this was fixed since last year though... thought I would throw that out there.

    I called and asked about the provisionary status. I was told that the curriculum has changed and NCLEX pass rates have gone up.

    I just got my acceptance letter to mercy a few weeks ago! I accepted and mailed my deposit. Can't wait to sit down and talk about what credits will transfer. Has anyone done so already? I have taken a&p 1 and 2, micro, human growth and development, etc. I'm hoping all my credits will transfer and all I'll have left to take are the nursing courses. Does anyone know if you can graduate earlier than 21 months?

    @rae2181, I took Mercy's PSB exam on February 7th as well. It was so hard! I am still waiting for my results, let's just hope the best for both of us.
