Has anyone finished or currently attending the Robert Morris University's College of Nursing? I went to talk to the advisor yesterday and he told me the following information: It is a 2 year, associate's degree program. He told me that clinicals are conducted at UIC Medical Center, Northwestern, Mt. Sinai and another one that I can't remember at the moment. He told me that 84% of graduates report getting a job or going on to graduate school shortly after completing the program. The school has a decent reputation but I want to know people's experience with the program. Thank you to all!!!

i was going to apply last year for their medical assistant program... but found them too expensive. why don't you go to a community college for the same 2 year ASN degree and save money?

I went to Robert Morris in 2007, which was the first nursing class. We started out with about 30 in the class. My dad was terminally ill, so I decided to take a break from school so I could spend as much time as I could with him. RMC told me I would be able to return to the nursing program, but I would have to reapply to be in the next cohort. They told me reapplying was just a formality, and I would definitely be able to back in. However, after waiting forever to hear back from them, I finally received a call back from them saying my application was denied. Another girl from my class broke her hand, and showed up to class, and was told to leave. She was also told she'd be allowed to return after the injury healed, but she too was denied re-entry. The last I'd heard they were down to 10 students in the class. You think being a nursing program they would have more compassion, but it's Robert Morris, they just want your money. In the long run, I'm saving a lot of money. The tuition was ridiculous.

Wow! I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. Thank you for sharing. What are you doing now? Attending a different nursing school? Thank you and good luck to you!

The first I'd heard of the program was earlier this week when I saw someone in their mongrammed scrubs
riding the L. Now I know why...

The program is way too expensive for an ADN program. You can pretty much get your BSN for the same price at a top nursing school in the state with a way better reputation than RBC.
My advice would be to get your degree at a community college or get your BSN at a good school with a better reputation than RBC,
