  1. Is the nursing program at ODU any good??
    It's very competitive, so don't let those prereqs get you down! :) Most applicants have very high GPAs and/or some kind of experience. Volunteer or try to get your CNA if you can. It'll give some...

    When you open up the ADN NCLEX pass rates on the VABON website, it automatically opens up to the 2nd worksheet (that has TCC on it), but the first sheet has MCI and other schools on it.

    Yeah - the 15 months was the deal maker for me - as long as you get through it! Faster doesn't mean it's easier and if you make below an 80, then you have wait about two or three months for the class...

  8. MCI 's cost is ridiculas
    I'm in the MCI RN program right now - about half way through with it. Yes - it does cost a lot - it's not a secret. And it's not for everyone - it's accelerated and fast paced and it's not easy. They...

    It's hard to say how "intense" it is - some have no problems and some really struggle with time management. Most students have a harder time in the night program mainly b/c they're also working full...

    The drops are usually because of failing or absences. Because the classes are only five weeks long, they have a very strict 80% attendance policy. If you're class meets twice a week, then you can...

    As for the prereqs, I don't know if they'll take pass/fail chemistry as a transfer. Did you have a lab? They might though! I know the other transfer rules are that they have to be within 7 years...

  16. Is MCI worth it or is it a scam? In VA if that helps
