Hello! I have been accepted to Bellarmine ABSN 12 month Program and I am wondering what people's thoughts are. I'm a little nervous attending bc I've read a fair amount of bad reviews. Hoping to get a clear grasp on the school/program before attending.

Also, if there is a fb group for the 2019 cohort, a link would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi, I also applied to Bellarmine and I am currently waiting to hear back regarding a decision. I have seen the reviews too but I also know that they let in a significant amount of people with different skill levels. I think that can attribute to some of the bad reviews. At least that's what I am telling myself... This is my last choice of the schools I applied to.

Hello, I was right about to start my own thread on the Bellarmine 2019 cohort. Congratulations on your acceptance! I've also been accepted into the program. I'm looking forward to hopefully hearing some positive reviews of the program. I've seen a fair share of negative reviews on this site, but some date back to the early 2010s.

i'm currently over halfway through the one year right now and i decided to make an account here just so i could hopefully add another perspective on the program. i remember checking these forums before starting last year and being terrfied based on what i saw!

in my experience so far, it's not as bad as some reviewers on here want you to believe. i'm not sure if they didn't pass a class or felt slighted in some way by an instructor, but i think some of what they wrote is pretty unfair. maybe things have changed between their experience and mine. in each section there were quite a few students that did not make it through the first session BUT it is one of the most difficult 8 weeks in the entire program and from what i witnessed, some people were not ready to be there yet. from the first day, you must be fully committed to succeeding. bellarmine does not have the admission requirements that some other programs have and it is really up to the individual to decide if he or she can make it.

i would not choose any other program. for me personally, the dizzying pace is exciting and i can't imagine doing 2 or 3 years of nursing school. but again, everyone is different! let me know if you have any more questions and i can try to answer!
