    I go to a for profit school. I start my core classes in August. I am very excited. I like my school a lot. It has it's ups and downs,but so does every other school out there. Do what is best for YOU and do not listen to any negativity otherwise

    I will be attending Bryant and Stratton in the fall. It is highly regarded by hospitals in Milwaukee from what I have heard from recruiters.

    With For Profit schools, it's really a "buyer beware" situation. I refuse to believe that all the For Profit schools are bad, but still plenty enough are bad, so to give it a bad reputation in general. My advice to anyone considering a For Profit school is to do your research ahead of time. Make sure they have their proper accreditation, and are not in a "pending" situation. Check their NCLEX passrates through the BON in your state. It can be indicative of the quality of the education provided. Talk to other people who have attended the school you are considering, if possible. For some students, a for profit school is the best option for them, and it is sad that so many schools seem to be solely out to collect the dollars without giving the student the quality of education in return.

    I know bryant and stratton wauwatosa is regionally and nationally accredited and has a 96% nclex pass rate. I always worry though. Like do they just fail anyone who wont pass the nclex to keep it high? You never know. But waitlists are 3+ years here to even start other nursing programs and unfortunately I just dont have that kind of time.
