Charles drew university

I need some help from anyone who is attending Charles Drew University. I am considering this school but the only reviews I have been able to find are too old to be credible. Does anyone have any recent experience in attending this school?

I also see that is has a "warning status, with intent to close."

If you could give me some tips on what I need to study for the interview that would be great!

I began at in the ELM-MSN program in 2017. Earlier posts frightened me when I applied. Yes, the school was on probation based on low NCLEX scores. Many things have changed and the school responded by changing admission protocols, timing issues, instructors, instituting HESI preparatory exams throughout and NCLEX prep courses. Although at the time of this posting, the information most recent review at the BRN was not yet posted, the last two cohorts that took the NCLEX have far exceeded the standard of 75% pass rate the the BRN expects. I think The Mervyn M. Dymally School of Nursing at Charles Drew University is great. It is a new school, so sure they have had some problems, but the facilities are new, faculty is high experienced and knowledgeable, clinical placements rival other nursing schools and opportunities for community engagement and research abound. In my opinion, Charles Drew is the best kept secret in health education in Los Angeles!
