I called the office today. Sandy informed me that I should be called for an interview that the commitee had my folder. I turned my application in at the end of January. I would call every two weeks for an update. Each time they would tell me that it was under review. Today, I was connected to Sandy because I was informed that my application was in review for a long time. If you care to share, How was your interview? What information did you recieve about the program? thanks
you can also reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Has anyone heard back from the Psychiatric (PMHNP) program yet? Any interviews and/or letters?
I know there have been several questions regarding the Everest Graduates and what has happened since graduation. 100% of our class passed the NCLEX on the first try. From my experience, and everyone I spoke to, we all passes with the minimum number of questions as well. I was hired in the field I wanted to work in before the ink was dry on my license. I will say it again. Everest in Phoenix was an excellent nursing school. The faculty was exceptional. I have few complaints aside from the initial stuff we put up with as a new program. I applied for many positions and not one of them had an issue with the school I graduated from. I am still receiving job offers 6 months after I graduated and 4 months after I started working. I hope all of you that passed judgement on me and this program have found your place in the world. As for me, I am an RN, applying for a Masters program that again, isn't discriminating against the school I got my RN at. All of my classmates are working, some of us making upwards of $42 an hour. The second lass at Everst has graduated and are waiting to take the NCLEX. If anyone has serious questions about the program, PM me and I will try to help. For the rest of you...good luck!
Another believer! The trick worked for me! Payed to check this morning and got the official, unofficial results. Good luck to everybody out there!!!
Just took mine this morning in Texas. I will let you know if it works for me
Also kelliegrl I know you may believe that you have tried so hard to educate Mr.300lb diabetic but I would bet that you are probably wrong. I have a RN friend who got type II diabetes and most of the stuff she truly understands about the illness she had to do indepth research to find out, not something she learned from the nurses at the hospital or her doctor. Which just says to me that we as nurses are not given the indepth education we need to know to help our patients understand their illness and in all probability if your floor is as busy as mine you probably only have enough time to say approx 5 sentences to your patient all shift. Both of those instances do not lead to patient comprehension. Second diabetics have a very high instance of depression. I don't know if you have ever had major depression but if not then you can not really appriciate their lack of hope and motivation. Why don't you try to get them a psych consult and on some meds before you teach them something? It may help a great deal.
andimp00 i really hate to say this but here it is, you seem to take comments about this school very personal. i know you claim that you are not an employee here but a student. if this is true why in the world would you care about others comments. if you are getting what you need and you don't have a vested interest in the school beside that you get an education then what's up?
i know now that i am working on my pre reqs i am proud of my school but first and foremost i am proud of my own accomplishments. i did notice that when you pm me, you mention everything about the rep of your school, however, you never mention anything about the fact these schools work on a 90/10 financial basis, and that they are overpricing their programs by 110% which means that students will always be forced to contribute at least that 10% into the cost of the program because the school has taken all the financial they was awarded.
many private schools are expensive, and their rep speaks for itself, i do not see anyone as offended about these schools but you. why
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but the red flag for me on these colleges is I think you get in on a first come first serve basis. I called around when I thought I would never get into nursing school and found out the credits dont transfer, so it seems like a waste of time. Also if your accepted on a first come first serve basis, seems that pretty much anyone who can pass their initial test can get in. So good for those who may have poor prereq grades, but for anyone who is competitive in the pool of nursing students, in my opinion, should steer clear of these programs.
Also, my previous experience as a dental assistant taught me that graduates of trade schools (such as Apollo and Everest) get considered for hire last, with those from Colleges getting considered first and usually getting the position.
Thanks for your response, however just to point out what I meant by a worthless piece of paper is this. When you receive a degree from a school that will not allow you to transfer these credit over to another public school then in essence what you have receive is worthless in the sense that you are not able to further your education outside of this particular school, and thus you must remain a student at said school or take the required courses all over again at a public school. I also looked into this school and I do not want to comment on the details I found during my investigation so I will leave you with thishttp://www.consumeraffairs.com/education/everest.html
I am confident that we are all adults and we are all able to make our own decisions. At no time did I or will I ever encourage someone to attend a certain school or not, I only am stating the facts.
i assure you that I am not an employee of Everest. i am a student, half way through the program and one year away from running, not walking to a *REAL* degree. I would put my education up against any other in the area. Although the cost of my education is expensive, I have been on the waitlist at the CCs for over a year and will probably still be on it when I graduate. By that time I will be making REAL money as an RN. Cost analysis tells me that I made the right choice. Please, save your judgement for someone else and let others make their own decisions. If anyone has REAL questions about the program i am happy to respond and tell them the positive and negative aspects of the program.
For those of you still looking into Everest they do let you transfer in as many non-nursing classes as you want as long as your grades were C or above. That does cut down on the $$$. I am at the end of Block II now. Just a few weeks before finals. There have been ups and downs. Some of them associated with the problems of it being a new program, and some of them I believe you would have anywhere. All in all, I am glad I chose this program. I am almost half way through and my education, which is what is important, I feel has been top quality! I cannot say enough about my instructors. If any of you have ?s, let me know. I am happy to answer as many of them as I can.
Clinicals are great!! We have such great instructors, so we have a lot of 1 on 1 attention. The program is going well. There have been a few hiccups, but I expected that with a new program.
Overall things are good. Classes are getting more difficult and we just came off of 2 weeks where we didn't have a day off, and then we had midterms last week, so I am fried! I can't really give the program as a whole a rating, because there are so many factors. One of the things i would give a 10 is the fact that the administration and instructors are open for our suggestions and feedback, and even seek it out. The issues that we have are primarily the same ones you would find with any program.
there were people who were able to finance 100%. Others are paying monthly payments without interest. There were many options, but I would make sure you checked into the grants and loans yourself, so you are not relying solely on the financial aid dept to do it for you.
If you have more specific ?s, send me a PM. i will be happy to give any info I can.
I feel your pain! I'm a Carolina Girl all the way! Currently living in Phoenix and hating EVERY minute of it. I have family in charlotte. Great place! I never lived there, but grew up in Chapel Hill, lived in Durham and Greensboro. You will absolutely love NC, wherever you move. So much better than this sweatbox. I am in nursing school and will be moving back to the Tarheel state as soon as I graduate! Good Luck!!
The NCLEX pass rates at PMI are great! Even better than those at some of the CCs. Check out the AZBON website! Just goes to show you that other programs are out there educating great nurses!
Whats the cost at Everett to get your ADN RN ?
