    Hi Dallet. I was wondering if you were still working as an NAC while going to school? I'm considering getting my NAC while I wait to get accepted but am not sure if I is reasonable to think that I can work and go to school.

    No, I don't work. School and taking care of 3 kids and a house are enough for me. Some people work in the program, but not a whole lot work, have young kids and go to school.

    That's kind of what I thought. I have 4 kids and I don't want to have take on more than necessary. Do you feel that it is important though to get your foot in the door before you graduate by working somewhere?

    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.

    I 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?

    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.:
    This 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?

    Barn 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!
