    Just a bit of advice from a senior at charity, DON'T DO IT! Please go to a BSN program that actually cares about its students and can effectively write test questions. You get what you pay for and believe me, if I wasn't so invested I would go somewhere else in a heartbeat.

    The test questions are not easythat's why it's call critical thinking and that's why thy have such a high passing rate on the nclex. Some questions don't make any since that's why you can contest but most of it requires you to know the material 100 percent or even if you know it you can't answer without some critical thinking. Most of the instructors are really nice and teach you tons there's some that are lazy but its like that at any school.

    Actually the interesting thing about being a poor question writer is that you end up passing a better question interpreter to take boards. After all, if you could answer 100 poorly worded questions and pass you will breeze through 75 well written or standardized questions. And most of the instructors are nice, but the good instructors dont want to be bothered fighting the bad ones so the current situation at charity is the result. Hopefully the new program will be better for the students.

    I actually contested 4 questions for The final back up by info and no credits given frustrated lol so ended up with a 84.95 which 85 is a B I was 1 questions away from a B so mad. Oh well what can you do. They did throw out one questions because it said imitate NPO instead of initiate lol I mean I guess no one is perfect.

    Stumbled upon this exchange in my research about Charity school of nursing. I'm so curious to know how school is going for the new fall students. I too am heavily weighing applying for the school. I work as a tele monitor tech now and want to keep my job through school. I have two children 9&10. Am very nervous as I have heard about how difficult. I am 40 so not a traditional young student. I have womanly questions regarding the day to day of being in school. Anyone out there can help??

    Thanks for the info I know you probably have graduated already but can you give some follow-up information like what are you doing now, do you feel like charity prepared you for your nursing career, have you started a Rn-BSN program yet, and any other information that might be helpful for interested nursing students.
