    [/YOUTUBE][/YOUTUBE]Has anyone heard of, or is/was in the program for either RN-BSN, or RN-MSN through The College Network? I'm thinking of doing this program. It seems reasonable and priced well. But does anyone have any insightful info for or against the program? Thanx ~ John

    I would strongly encourage you to check out everything before signing on the dotted line. You want to ensure your pre-req that you test on are transferable to the state that you are nursing in. I have had a bad experience as the state that I live in doesn't recognize the study curriculum. Therefore the LPN to RN isn't going to happen....now I am stuck with an additional payment for 5 years. There is also a cavat that Indiana State doesn't have to accept you just because you are signed up through College Network.....just check everything out. Good Luck

    Program is very good as long as you understand you have to put some effort into it. They don't take the tests for you. Top 5 reasons people say they were "ripped off":
    1-Customer took an exam and failed due to lack of studying, blames TCN, not themselves
    2-Customer blew off the modules and 5 years later, is amazed the course changed??? Go figure.
    3-Customer "thought" they took a course back in 1975, but it was not thru a reginally accredited school and did not transfer. Not TCNs fault. Your fault for going to Joes Tech College in some guys garage.
    4-You really have to make the payments on the loan you signed up for, thats really "ripping you off". Nice way to handle your financial responsibilities.
    5-Customer fails CLEP exam multiple times and is mad that TCN won't repay them for exam fees.

    To compalin too much,
    The reason I was ripped off has nothing to do with your top 5 reasons.You sound like a know it all, but let me be the one to inform you, I was lied to. I was told TCN was setting up a program through the company I work for to help with the tuition cost. That was not true. I would not have signed a contract if I thought I would be paying the $6000 on my own. I was not told they are just a publishing company. You can buy these same cheaply put together binders off of Ebay for next to nothing. Once they get you to sign with them, they never call you to see how your doing with your education. I am currently getting my BSN through a real college and I do not procrastinate.

    Interesting that Complain to much has 4 posts.. all of which are advocating the TCN and made within a single hour...
    Either a very narrow forum user or posting with an agenda and thus spouting spam.
