I was wondering if anyone had any information about this school. Their program is fairly new and not accredited as of yet. So, im kinda skeptical about this program. It would be nice if someone could respond to this that is in... Read More
- 2May 20, '10 by RhodyGirl, RNWow, I cannot believe how expensive this program is! I am a senior nursing student at RIC and will pay far less for my entire BSN. RIC does not have a waiting list, but is highly competitive --so if you have good grades I would encourage applying to RIC or URI's program. I can't imagine paying that kind of money for a two year degree!

Fortunately, New England Tech has the lowest tuition of any independent college in RI. As a matter of fact, its tuition is lower than what students who are not residents of Rhode Island pay at the University of Rhode Island.

They accept the top 25 scores on the kaplan. And yes they do take some of transfer courses depending on the course and how old it is.Hey, I am looking into this school and I am wondering, to those who have been accepted, what was your GPA at the time of being accepted? Also, did they take your transfer credits?

I'm definitely not trying to board the ADN/BSN debate train here, but, if you're an RI resident I would seriously consider taking advantage of theCompared to a state-supported institutions, such as CCRI, RIC and URI, tuitions at independent institutions such as New England Tech, which receive no funding from the State of Rhode Island, are always going to be higher.

in-state tuition at the public schools. That way you'd spend less and have the 4 year degree. My entire BSN at RIC is costing me about $22,000 (I'm graduating in May). Just some food for thought....good luck in your nursing journey!
Edited to add -- the reason I'm talking cost here is due to the fact that vast numbers of nursing grads are not landing jobs, even a year out of school. Having to pay back loans of that caliber with a chance of not getting a job is a scary thought (one of the reasons I went with public school and not private).
- 2Jun 12, '10 by manda1028I am a nursing student currently at NEIT, and the way this program is running so far is phenomenal. Anyone who doesn't want to wait on a list for years should definitely consider it. Being in RI, you have the opportunity to get money to pay for nursing school, and when you get hired, many companies will reimburse you for some/all of your nursing school costs. The director of the nursing program is by far the most knowledgable person I know in the nursing field, just being in a classroom with her you feel like you can accomplish anything. Also, the whole nursing dept. staff so far treats all students with individual attention and support. These women work practically 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That is rare and I am grateful for the opportunity to be educated here. Accredited yet? no...but we are all confident we will pass the boards and we have support from kaplan university to help us since day 1. I can definitely say on behalf of myself and my fellow nursing student classmates, we are very happy with our decision.
- 1Jun 30, '10 by Snozbery26I will be starting the Nursing program at NEIT in July 2010, 3 more weeks! I have to say I can't wait! Yes, it is an expensive education but it is a state of the art program that I am hopeful will change nursing programs in RI all together. I absolutely cannot wait to start, I like hearing from those of you who are already in the program and are loving it! So far my experience with NEIT has been nothing but wonderful. Everyone in admissions have been extremely helpful and supportive. I am a 27 year old married mommy of a 2 year old boy, I will be working full time at least during my first 1-2 quarters, I didn't think I could swing going back to school but Keri in admissions was WONDERFUL and really made me feel empowered to FINALLY go to get my RN which is what I have to desperately wanted to do! I look forward to beginning my adventure to my RN, hope to hear from more students that will be starting in July also!
