Wow.. "Im shocked" and "for the moment".....who are you????? This is a place for support and encouragement. I think that is what the orginal poster wants....not negativty
And I'm sure if she or he choose to do this program, they would be in that 85% that would pass there NCLEX
I'm shocked because most paramedic to RN bridge programs that are legit only give credit for a few classes resulting in little or no time savings. Those that have offered any significant time savings have been sketchy, for profit, unaccredited programs that haven't stuck around for very long.
So I AM shocked to see one that is an accredited, non-profit. They must have been doing something right, although the new GA legislation mandating more experience for applicants of such programs appears aimed directly at this program. I have no idea what Georgia politics are behind it.
As to the test scores, I am not judging the OP, but I am talking about the program's outcomes. I am saying it is below the national average because being above the national average is what is required to gain and keep NLN accredidation.
None of this is a judgement against the OP, just observations about the history of these sorts of programs. I have researched this a fair amount because I once considered the same path as the OP, but found it to be more trouble than it is worth so I skipped it and went the BSN route. I'm merely trying to save the OP some trouble so their eagerness is not rewarded with disappointment, so feel free to untwist your panties.
