Thoughts on the school? I recently applied. I'm a little confused on the regional vs national accreditation. I would like to move after I graduate will my license be able to transfer to any state I chose?


Specializes in Med-Surg, Emergency. Has 2 years experience.

If the program is accepted by your state BON and you can get licensed, the license can transfer if I remember correctly. HOWEVER, $45k for an associate's degree is insanely high and some colleges won't accept the credits to continue your education, which a good chunk of hospitals are wanting nurses to get a BSN so make sure to keep that in mind while you make your decision. Have you looked into community colleges nearby and seen about their programs?

Edit: I'd look up their NCLEX pass rates, too. You don't want to spend that kind of money on a degree only to find out that a lot of people have a hard time passing NCLEX.

Yea all the community colleges have really long clinical petitioning.
