    Also I know Vanderbilt just started only excepting BSN candidates for there nurse residency program, if you were wanting to go ahead and go get your BSN.

    I have also applied for the nursing program at NSCC. I just received my letter for an interview a few days ago and I am also nervous about the accreditation issue. I'm not sure what I should do.

    I have applied to the NSCC program for Fall 2013. Accreditation isn't as much of an issue as people are making it. I work at St. Thomas and know several of the new grads from NSCC that have been hired. We even have one on my unit in ICU. I've heard there is a really good possibility that thy will have it completed by August.

    That definitely makes me feel better! I was worried about it but I have heard such good things about the program that I didn't see an issue with them receiving their accreditation.

    NSCC Nursing School is not always the best investment choice. I was dismissed 5-6 weeks before graduation (after 2 years...3.1 GPA). I am now in a BSN accredited program...regretting my previous choice. Do your homework for a better informed decision before you invest in the Nashville State Community College Nursing Program. In my opinion, they will hurt your memories of nursing school rather that enhance it....not many in my class felt the administration was fair and honest:
    Evidently they do not have a history of respecting their own written policy. There may be hope if the accreditation board respects its own policies and enforces it. Perhaps new certain faculty and a new NSCC academic affairs particular personnel will help. Read my story for yourself, but more importantly know that nursing school is not suppose to be a military boot as my experience was. An accredited University is a much better invested choice as I am now experiencing...professional instructors, and a solid curriculum.

    i currently attend there and i think if the pre req education isnt correctly taught then their program can be harder. especially for a&p and microbiology.

    Maybe it's time to get off the soap box if you're so happy at MTSU. I am a student at NSCC and love the program. It is what you make of it as with any education. I personally wouldn't want to work with a nurse whose education was just handed to them vs having to work for it.

    Hi Ms Morris,
    I left you a message on another post too. I can understand your frustrations being that you are already attending NSCC. Are you in the nursing program yet or are you taking the pre reqs? I took most of my pre reqs at NSCC and they all transferred to other colleges. The nursing courses do not transfer, however. It was of no fault of my own that I was wrongfully dismissed, as the appeals meeting proved. I am respectfully warning potential nursing students by sharing my experience. I think this is the best site to get the message out there.
