Good Morning,

I don't know if there is another thread on this subject.

I am asking for a friend who's looking into Nursing programs in the Central Florida Area. One of them is Keiser University's nursing program. She has heard from others, don't know who, that Keiser RN grads are "looked down upon". I have not heard anything about this. I would like to hear from any Keiser grads about this, and perhaps can debunk this, or anyone that has any knowledge about it.

Thanks.

You have to be careful, because some of these schools may be considered only career colleges. So check with each individual school, like to if universities take their credits or not. Some privates schools are not accepted. Maybe if you go to another private school, they might not have a problem with it.

I will say this; I worked at a medical office where the ultrasound/x-ray students did their clinicals. The word was we would hire a BCC student over a Keiser student. On the positive note, I've talked to someone about this because I am too inquiring about the nursing program. An acquaintance of mine graduated from Keiser's ADN program a few years ago and was hired immediately at Health First. I think the best thing to do is really shine at your clinical site. If you're great, they will hire you if the position is available.
