I googled "Dallas Nursing Institute," and could conjure up no information.

Is the Dallas Nursing Institute a nursing school? Or, is it a workplace?

It was formaely know as NTPCI. I graduate Aug 3rd last day of class July 27th. A little unorganized at first but new director and new direction. I would reccommend you must be focused and committed.

You need to avoid any private nursing school like the plague.

First, they are expensive.

Second, they are a business, not an institution of high learning.

Third, even if you are a foreign national, it is less expensive to attend a community college than to go to one of those fly-by-night things.

Check into El Centro College in Dallas. They have a very, very good practical nursing program, and they are on the mass transit ("DART") route. Plus, as a student, I believe you get free passes for DART.

Good luck--and don't get cheated by a for-profit outfit! They have less to offer than a public institution.

I agree with you on most of your points. I attend Concorde Career Institute simply because I need a 'fast-track' school since I have been on waiting lists for several nursing programs around the country (we're a military family) for approximately 10 years now and have worked in the nursing field for 12 years. Private nursing schools are a business which supposedly specialize in 'education'. I will be the first one to tell you even though I am attending one, DON'T DO IT!!!!!!

These programs are not for everyone, and at $22,500 for a 9-12 month program, it's worth it to some and not to others. For me personally, I decided to do it since I'm not sure how much longer my husband and I will be in Texas. Good luck.

I wanted to say thanks for replying. Great advice. I'm a full-time DCCCD student. All 3 programs are day programs, and I have a baby that I can not afford to put in daycare. I used be enrolled in CI, like Kiya, but that program is a little far for me. DNI, has a new part-time wknd and evening.:monkeydance: I just thought this little monkey was to cute!

Well I start nights/weekends in September at DNI and I surely hope it will be for me. It has to be, actually. I work full-time, have bills to pay--how else is one supposed to get a degree (and not wait 2 years for acceptance?) This is what I want to do and I am determined to git er done.
