@ BridgingHTX, LPN, LVN: Thank you for all of the information you have provided. I am looking at this school and your input has been extremely helpful! What types of payment plans do they have? Thanks in advance!

I’m in the program. The program description is correct, I will be done in a few months. Although I am currently waiting to see how this will impact our clinical rotations. Otherwise, the program is good, you have to study independently and it’s pretty fast paced. Let me know if you have any specific questions

Did you graduate from the program?

So I spoke with someone from foundpath in regard to their LPN-RN program. Name of the program is " Essential school of nursing in miami.

The site says:

Quote

Essential School of Nursing RN program is designed for registered nurses who have earned an Associate Degree in Nursing. All courses and required community clinical project will be completed in your local area.

Do students already have an ADN before attending? I know that makes no sense. Is this a diploma school of nursing. It does not appear they have any accreditation. The curriculum is not on the website. Are their pre-reqs from another college or do Essentials teach them?

Re. Essential School of Nursing. I cannot find out anything about this program. It is approved by Florida but no one (for LPN or RN) took boards in 2019? When was their first graduating class? 

BTW - here is a photograph of their school addressessential.thumb.jpg.f5996702a52babf1f4545d5adeeefd71.jpgand their email is a 'gmail address'

Oh, guys! Please, please, please be careful!

You should be able to obtain information about credible schools without problem. Such a lack of info is like a SUPER BIG RED FLAG.

It may be that they're just newly opened, so THAT might be the reason for such a lack. However, I would tend to believe that a program would have some type of promotional advertisement to encourage enrollments.

There are very rigid rules for school ACCREDITATION. Such rules ensure  your opp'ty to attend other accredited schools. Occupational opp'ties can also be affected as well military enrollment.

Do scrupulous research and if you're not 110% satisfied, then WAIT! Better safe than sorry!

I have spent some time looking at this program. There have been no test takers for RN/LPN/CNA  for 2019 and 2020 so far. Their website is dated for 2018. They are approved by the FBON but I cannot find out anything else. They are not accredited. There is no description of a curriculum on their site, just a place to send in your name and email and ask for details. I did not receive any communications back from them.

Another school I have looked at is Capscare Academy; I cannot find current approval from the FBON for them. Their website notes they were not admitting students after 6/19 (for that month, year ?)

Here are their NCLEX scores:

For 2017

14 took test; 6 passed, 8 failed. % passing: 42.86%

For 2018:

94 took test; 40 passed, 54 failed. % passing 42.55% 

At least they are consistent. This was written on their website: (curiouser and curioser) 

Quote

Top Graduates By State (Based on First time passage rates ) based on 2015-2019 passage rates published by the National Board of Nursing  

2019 

New York 95 % of our NY students have passed the board on the first try 1st Place  

Maryland 85% of our Maryland Students have passed the board on the first try 2nd Place  

Texas 75% 3rd Place  

Florida 50% 4th Place 

It seems to me there are quite a few marginal career type programs in Florida (I mean no disrepect to those that attended school in Florida.) It seems per law,  that NCLEX scores can go quite low before probation status:

Quote

Approved nursing education programs must achieve a graduate passage rate that is not lower than 10 percentage points less than the average passage rate for graduates of comparable degree programs who are United States educated. An approved nursing education program shall be placed on Approved/probationary status by the Florida Board of Nursing pursuant to s. 464.019 for failure to meet the required passage rates on the NCLEX for two consecutive calendar years
