The school has really made a lot of changes, and I plan on attending there for nursing school. The school is indeed NLNAC accredited, and it's up for a new review until 2015. And, a previous poster is correct in that unless your pre-reqs are done at a community college you cannot transfer to the U of U, BYU, etc... And, probably any state university or college for that matter. However, you can get your ADN from SHC, and than your BSN from U O P Online, which is what exactly where the nurses who teach at the local community college got there BSN from! :heartbeat
SHC also now offers accredited NLNAC BSN, AND Masters & they vary from nursing, nursing administration, or nursing education (if you ever want to teach in the future). Or, you could just go for your BSN/Masters from U O P online as well
Any nursing school is a good nursing school as long as it is NLNAC accredited. After that, it just depends on how much you want to end up paying back after. With state universities and community colleges, almost all of them have a 2-3 year waiting list after you have all the pre-reqs done (and is usually cheaper), or you can pay a lot more in the end but go straight through the process with the smaller, private schools. (Granted, that is if you get accepted - and no, they do not admit everyone).
As far as someone not being able to get the transcripts, there is usually a number you can call that isn't a 1800 number. And, if there is, just call them & tell them what you need. ANY school will make you owe money if you have signed up for classes and didn't drop before a certain date.
SHC has a decent NCLEX passing rate too. However, U of U has a slightly higher passing score, but BYU is best/top in the state of Utah.
