Specializes in OR, Nursing Professional Development. Has 18 years experience.

Things to look into:

-Approval from the BON. Should be provided on the BON website

-Accreditation. The two bodies for nursing school accreditation are ACEN and CCNE

-NCLEX pass rates. Should be provided on the BON website

-Local reputation with health care facilities

-Rate of people who start the program and finish on time


Specializes in Cardiac Telemetry, ICU.

Alvin Community College has a fantastic nursing program and so do some of Lonestar's campuses, Montgomery and Cyfair especially. I'd stay away from Lonestar North Harris but they're all approved programs. If I recall correctly, ACC had the highest NCLEX pass rates out of all community colleges around here. I just applied to Lonestar Montgomery and they have a pretty nice looking campus too.

HCC lost their accreditation and are no longer accepting new students. I suggest Lonestar or Alvin Community College.

Specializes in Critical Care, Education. Has 35 years experience.

Evidence is better than opinions - HERE are NCLEX results for Tx RN schools over the last 5 years.
