Good Morning/Evening

(depending on who and when you read this)

I have been a lurker of AN for quite some time. After a co-worker successfully passed the program at eei she is now working on her BSN. I was a bit worried about the school at some point but I've decided to pursue education there.

Before i ramble, I am posting this topic just in case there are others who are potentially going to be my classmates. I look forward to hearing from you. My background is EMT-B, EKG Tech and Unit Secretary. I currently do work for a hospital in Intermediate Care.

Are you aware that they lack NURSING accreditation and regional accreditation? Meaning your credits do not transfer. Also, abysmal NCLEX pass rates.

Surely you can do better than this place.

Hi,

I am registered for January 2019 as well. Looking forward to getting through school, currently an LPN.

As far as the other comment on here, they are in the process of getting the acen accreditation so I wouldn't worry to much...

See you next month!

I transferred from Broward College to this school. I went from struggling and zero support at BC, to coming to EEI. I don't regret it at all. I'm excited to attend clinicals and class. They encourage you to ask questions and don't make you feel stupid and inept, like Broward does.

On my HESI exit for Psych, I scored a 960 first time. minimum pass is a 850. Got an A in the class overall. BC, I was lucky to scrape by with a C.

and yes, their scores BEFORE Michelle took over were truly bottom of the barrel abysmal. She just took over and the scores while still not amazing, have skyrocketed compared to before.

If you'd like any info or even to get together on campus for any questions, feel free to message me. I'm in OB/Peds now.

Do you know when they will get there acen accreditation? I was looking into this school but wasn't thrilled when they told me clinical's are done at Florida Medical center since that hospital gets such a bad rap.  How has your experience with clinical been so far?

as far as ACEN, I'm not sure. I haven't asked. I've compiled a pretty good list of several universities and employers that have good reps & have no problem transferring EEI's credits, or accepting grad applications from them.

 

I absolutely LOVE FMC. I did my clinicals at Broward North when I was at BC, and let me tell you there is a MASSIVE difference in the way the two operate! The teamwork they have at FMC is fantastic; all the nurses help each other out, and everyone is willing to help you and show you how to do procedures or walk you through new things. Even the doctors were quizzing us on things; I felt confident to perform things I knew, and confident that I could ask someone to explain or show something to me and walk me through it.

 

My experience has been that the nurses are very attentive of their patients and cognizant of their individual needs; especially with procedures like IV insertions , foleys , etc. we are kept busy everytime we're there.

 

I plan on applying there once I graduate in August. If you have any  other questions you could message me as well 🙂
