Can someone give me feedback. With this program? I am thinking of applying over the summer. We’re you able to work? How flexible was traveling there for clinicals etc.  Also would we take nclex in their state if we complete the program? 
many feedback would be appreciated.

I just started this program this spring semester. As far as the clinicals this semester they weren't quite what the instructors had hoped for from the hospitals, but they are flexible. They are offered just about every weekend from Feb through the first part of Apr. You have to do 8 days. You'll also have to plan to be there for a full week before the program starts for orientation and skills. 

Some people are coming into town for two long weekends in a row to get their clinicals done in one trip, it just didn't work out for me to be able to do that. Our class has people from 9 states and Canada. So far I really like it. The instructors are great and are on top of any issues that might arise. 

You will take NCLEX for whatever state you live in, not just for Kansas. 

Good luck.

Thank you for the information, I was going to apply this summer but I didn’t hear any feedback from anyone yet. I think I’m going to go for it and apply.
 

yes the nclex was that made me nervous, I currently live in Louisiana we are a compact state but I hear other programs such as INdiana state will not even transfer.

I’ve been looking into this school as it seems very appealing flexibility wise. What is your GPA like, if you don’t mind me asking? Have you taken the Kaplan exam yet? I’m trying to figure out the best way to study for it. I still have to take patho and microbiology before the deadline as well.

Go for it. They told us in orientation that they are accepted by all 50 states' boards of nursing. There are a few that require more clinical hours than others and they are working with those individuals to get those accomplished. 

Best of luck to you.

I have a 3.6 GPA, but it's only based on your GPA from the prerequisites needed for the course, not total. They use a points system for acceptance into the program. 

Yes I took the Kaplan. The Kaplan study guide is only good for the reading comprehension part, don't study anything else out of it, it's not on the test. I actually found some online study material that was much more helpful for the science and math. That Kaplan book is a waste of money. 

Best of luck to you.

Yes, I have taken the Kaplan, The book is useless I found quizlet very helpful, I have to retake microbiology also, they want me to try to test out of it first, since I have taken it before.

 

I am planning to apply, this summer, My GPA is high according to person I spoke with and she came back with a 3.78.

Yes the flexibility sounds great we will just been traveling for clinicals

Thanks for letting me know the Kaplan book is garbage, that’ll save me some money. I’m going to take Microbiology through EduKan/Pratt Community College during the spring 5 session that starts on March 2nd. It’s an 8 week class but I’ve heard good things about it. I’m probably going to take Patho through Hutchinson since they offer it online as well. 
 

Good luck with everything!
