    did anyone read the article in the UT about the grossmont nursing program possibly losing it's national accreditation for not having enough full time faculty?

    Here's the link if anyone wants to read it... > News > Metro -- Shortage of nursing teachers may hurt

    How important is it FOR THE STUDENT to go through a nursing program with national accreditation? Does it really matter if Grossmont stays accredited with the California Board of Nursing?

    Well from the meeting I attended, they told us that being accredited thru the California Board of Nursing is the important one, not the NLN. But man, now im starting to get worried.

    If Grossmont is not NLN accredited, does that mean I can't work in a different state?

    from what the article said, it sounds like current students wouldn't be effected, just incoming students... but still, what does it mean? that new students won't be able to go out of state to get jobs?

    also, i checked the NLN website & SDSU & point loma aren't NLN accredited, so maybe it's not that bad?

    SDSU has a different national accreditation.

    Maybe the NLN will grant Grossmont an extension, I did plan on moving out of state, I need to talk to someone about this.

    Maybe we should start a petition. Maybe write to Duncan Hunter or the governor. Protest outside the Deans office. This program needs funds and the state needs nurses.

    The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Know any loud mouths??

    Just a thought

    So, is it normal that no one has enrolled for section 120 yet?
  10. by   sdmommie
    I noticed that too. The other classes are getting filled up.

    Not sure, but if they were not having a new 120 course it wouldn't be listed and there wouldn't be a section number for it. Ive heard nothing about that, but i'll see what I can find out tomorrow in class.

    I wonder if they are still waiting to see if they will offer the night/weekend section before letting anyone enroll in 120. I'm sure some prefer that option.

    I'm pretty positive they aren't offering the nights/weekends. I'm just crossing my fingers we don't lose the NLN. I wonder if they plan on not enrolling any new 120 classes til it's sorted out. In the long run, it would be best if that happened to ensure everything is in order for all the new classes coming in, even if that meant taking a semester to deal with things. But who knows! I'll keep you posted tomorrow.
