To everyone else:
I have heard that SCC has lost its nursing accreditations. Can anyone tell me more about this? I heard this from my aunt who is a nurse in spokane and one of her friends was going to do the nursing program but is now thinking not to.
- 0Aug 24, '10 by theniknikI called SCC yesterday and asked them about what it is they lost, since my aunt didnt know, and the lady told me if you get your degree there you wouldnt be able to work in a Federal or a VA hospital. but she also told me that the school was trying to get it back. Does anyone know why the school would loose this?
- 0Aug 25, '10 by theniknikQuote from Student MikeThis is about all I could find but it still does not explain why a school would loose it. Is it just a matter of filling out some kinda of paper work or is it how they run their school. because if its the second one I would rather not go to SCC. I will be attending in the fall no matter what to start my prerequis but I would rather not only count on this then. also would federal/va organizations count for military bases over seas?:
Accreditation, well that is an issue if you want to work for the VA or other federal organization. Most other employers, that I know of only look for state accreditation. It also appears that SCC will get their accreditation back by the time we complete the program. Odd, even though the VA won't hire without the accreditation, I am doing my practicals at the VA.:
- 0Sep 10, '10 by student00Barn Owl, Be very careful about SCC nursing school. They lost a major certification NLN, and while you can still sit for your boards, NCLEX, there are several schools and institutions that will not hire you without this NLN cert. I work at Providence a 700 bed faciltiy and they will not hire SCC grads starting this fall. You will not be hired at any federal institutions. You cannot transer to Gonzaga, or U of W if you want to move on. I would call the state and get this confirmed. Do not rely on SCC to get your info, I guarantee you they will not tell you the truth but there are several hundred new RN's out there looking for work and only getting long term care jobs. Be proactive in your research!
