As I posted in another thread, I am looking to use the next couple of years (before my twins go to school) getting my nursing degree. I inquired about the nursing program at Ameritech (filled out the online form), but they want to make an appointment for a tour of the facility etc. I'm not interested in the hoopla, I just want the information. Have any of you spoken with them recently? How long is the program? How much does it cost? I have an Associates Degree from SLCC already. Does that count for anything?
In years past their NCLEX pass rates have been less than stellar, however, their website says their February '09 grads had a 90(something)% pass rate. How can this be verified? I'd love to hear from recent graduates or those currently in the program to see how things have changed/improved.
Finally, what does their accreditation (or lack of) mean for employment, BSN, etc.?
Thanks in advance for any info you can give!
