    Has anyone graduated from ECPI's (Medical Career Institute) Associate or Bachelors in Registered Nursing Program in Virginia Beach or Newport News? Were you able to find work immediately? Did you feel that the instructors at ECPI were knowledgeable? Were the instructors on time for the hospital clinicals? Which campus is better Virginia Beach or Newport News? Do you know anyone that graduated from there? Were they confident about their learning experience?
    I know for a fact that Mary immaculate hospital in NN won't hire ECPI grads...they've had too many med errors with them. And it's super expensive. I'd go with TNCC, riversides RN program or Sentaras BSN. I actually have a friend in Sentaras BSN program and she loves it.

    I am looking into going into the Associates in nursing program at ECPI but I want to know if its really worth it. Will places actual hire you of you have a degree from ECPI? Does the program have the accreditation needed to actually be considered a legit RN program? Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

    It's 40,000 I think you have to pay 300 a month. It's 18 months. You have to have chemistry, college math, computer application & GPA of 2.5 not hard to get in. VERY fast pace.

    Virginia Board of Nursing Education Programs
    This is a list of all the schools in the area, ECIP is not accredited, but has Full Approval by Virginia Board of Nursing, which is great if you plan on never moving from VA, or want to do a bridge program. *from what I understand*

    I am currently in the ADN program at ECPI. It is very fast paced with much self study time but I have learned so much in a short period of time. Our clinical sites are top notch places with hiring potential and very knowledgable instructors guiding us. ECPI even has recruiters come for us to talk to and make contacts, that is more than I ever recieved from the community college I was at for 2 years taking pre-req's to be told it was another 2 year wait to be considered admission to the ADN program. Many of my classmates are current LPN 's that graduated from ECPI and came back to get their RN. All of them had no problem getting jobs as LPN's. I would recommend ECPI to someone who has much self discipline to study since terms are only 5 weeks, it is almost impossible to work for many of us unless it is weekends. ECPI offers free tutoring and many of my instructors are very much willing to help. At this point I am extremely satisfied with the investment I have made in my future by attending ECPI to achieve my dream of becoming an RN.
