I will be attending ECPI at the end of July and I am so excited. :) I was attending Tri-County Tech. College and I was waitlisted twice. I had attended TCTC for over two years and I was fed up with not being able to get into their Nursing Program. :banghead: I realize that ECPI is very expensive but to be accepted into the Nursing Program is priceless. :stdnrsrck:

Hi Ruby,

Is the program really hard? Are you in LPN or Rn program? I wanted to do the RN program. How many hours of studying do you do? Do you know when the RN program starts? Anything else important that I might need to know? I live near Charleston about a hour away. Thank you!

Sarah, I am doing the LPN program, right now there is no RN program at the Charleston ECPI campus. I study anywhere from 3 to 5 hours at night after class, it depends on if I am grasping the info well or not from that days lecture. The terms are 5 weeks long (fast paced!) and the time and days vary. Start time is 8, some days you could be done by 12 some days 4, depends on what course your in at the time. Clinical days are 6:30 to 1 or 2 depends on the clinical site. I know a few girls who drive from Columbia or Kingtree SC that are in the program, it's ALOT of work but can be done. Again, no RN program yet, I have heard talks about getting one started but that will be years from now. HTH:)

I graduated from ECPI 8years ago LPN program. I did a video called nurse dirty finger. One of my fondest memories is of Ms. Mac. I loved my time there it was very difficult at times and I would not trade one minute. Enjoy your class my name is Terry Peace.

Hey guys,

So I am currently in the process of enrolling in ECPI-Greenville for the new ADN program. How did y'all like it? How were the classes? I got some classes that are transferring from Piedmont Technical College and I am excited to get in and get done, i've been doing school for so long and just ready to be done!

Their NCLEX pass rates (at other campuses; Greenville program is too new, so no data) aren't great, and they make no mention on their website about ACEN accreditation.

(Edit: Their completion rate is also (across all campuses) 31%, and the cost is $45k. They also refuse to publish any kind of figure on grads employed after graduation. Thats unbelievable. Were it me, I'd be staying far, far away with numbers like that.)

You'll be able to sit for the NCLEX, but it doesn't look like they're setting you up for success, and hospitals sometimes get funny about hiring grads from for-profit and non-ACEN accredited programs.

My gf is currently enrolled in a new ADN program (2nd cohort) at a for-profit college, and it's been a disaster.

Have you looked into any of the ADN programs at the local tech colleges, like GTC or Tri-County?
