Just to clarify and let's say this is the worst case scenario: What happens if you do not pass the NCLEX? Do these programs automatically kick you out? I'd imagine that would be a waste of time and money...
I have absolutely no idea! I guess it never occurred to me that I would fail
I supposed at worst you'd have to sit out a semester until you pass? UHV is on a quarter system, so you'd have your first set of courses completed at 8 weeks.
The thing to remember is that they are still RN-BSN programs, so there's not a clinical component. The longer you wit to test, the more of your skills you'll lose, and employers know that. The more fresh you are off relevant experience, the better, and being in a BSN program won't protect you from that. So I wouldn't plan on spending ages preparing.
