    Good question, Sandra. I think those are pretty much going the way of the drive-in theatre - seems there are fewer and fewer every year. Just a few years ago the hospital-based school my brother graduated from closed - they turned out excellent nurses with a 100% boards pass rate the first time (because those who didn't "cut the mustard" were invited to leave before they sullied the record - those nuns were tough! I don't know why they are disappearing (I presume it's $ related in some fashion - isn't everything?)
    The hospital-based school I graduated from had a 90% pass rate. Seems that the ANA just couldn't stand prosperity, and it closed, too...

    Nursing education has moved from hospital-based diploma programs (which, by the way, granted little, if any, college credits.)

    Please see the American Nurses Assosciation re their position on entry into practice.

    Please see National League of Nursing for their position on the future of nursing education.

    Please see the American Association of Colleges of Nursing for their position on the future of nursing education.

    Hint: Get the highest degree that you possibly can, as soon as possible. This will afford you the most career mobility.

    There is no valid arguement against formal higher education.

    Just my two cents, Edward, IL

    Edward, it is possible to have gotten a great education from a diploma program. I don't think you needed to be so condescending.

    And you should check you facts about diploma programs; most of those that still exist have altered their format so that graduates need about one additional year to obtain a BSN.

    My 15 year old daughter would like to be a nurse. She had to do a career report and got info. from Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster, PA and St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem, PA. Both award a diploma and have classes for English, A&P, etc at their facilities. St. Luke's also has a program w/ Moravian College for the BSN degree w/ clinicals mostly on their campus in addition to the diploma program. I also know of a diploma school in Delaware (at the shore) Beebe Hospital which grants a diploma, but prereq's are taken off campus before the start of the nursing classes.
