    Hi, I visited this school and talked to a person there. It sounds good but not sure if it accredited. Also could not find any info on the net about them. I'm leaning towards fraude but only time will tell.

    Your BON website should have a list of accredited schools, or you can call the school directly and ask them. There are only two possible answers, don't let them run you around the bush: yes or no. Some schools will try to say that accreditation is pending, and turns out it's been pending for years because they can't get their acts together.

    I have visited the school in Houston. To answer your question regarding accreditation. They are not. They are a private institution. It is private pay. They will offer a payment plan if you are unable to pay the entire amount. The community and universities have the monolopy on nursing schools. It is extremely difficult to get accreditation. I don't understand why the are trying to keep nursing education exclusive to the colleges only. Right now some schools have over 1000 applicants and they will only accept 350 to 400 students. And we wonder why there is such a nursing shortage!

    I called there yesterday and talked with a gentlman that told me that they only do "tutorials"... He would not tell me as to what subjects or generalized area of tutorial... He referred me to another number in the company inwhich a woman told me that they are not open, no classes are scheduled and she does not know when there will be another class.. She told me they are currently taking names and deposits for a class that may begin when ever... This sounds very strange to me, I do believe that they are definitaly not legitimate, unaccredited and have been closed down by the state... Hope this helps out...
