    First off I am a former student of Broward College nursing program who now desires to or shall I say attend Keiser University Fort. Lauderdale campus. I do not feel Keiser is a rip off, actually I considered it as my first choice to do my nursing. Why I decide to go with Broward College is because #1.it was closer to my home and kids. 2. I wanted to experience what Broward College had to offer me regardless of the "nah sayers" (mind you I had heard rumors about that school reputation as well). 3. Cost wasn't a big issue for me. Well Broward College was not for me. Maybe one day I'll share my experience on allnurses.com.

    Therefore Keiser it is. I start Monday I have to take computers and redo Micro other than that, they accepted all my credits and I will not pay more that $35,000 give or take scholarships that I plan to receive. Contact Keiser and see for yourself.

    When I hear the term rip off. I assume the school you, I, or anyone goes too will experience something like this. Said school signs you up, and not teach you anything, you graduate no job, no career, and a hefty student loan too pay back. Or.... That's just way to much money for a ADN degree.

    Well I do know this. If nursing is for you; you would want to research what school is best for you. Cost is something to think about. However when I chose Keiser I went to the campus and did a tour. I stopped current students (nursing) and asked them how do they feel about the school, education, the cost, etc. I received all good feedback. I also stopped by Dade Medical College, FCC, as well. I didn't like it at all. I visited Keiser 2 times before I made my decision and I happy with it. I plan on getting a Masters in Nursing so I know I'm going to have owe a lot of money, but I also know that I will also make enough to pay it off. With my high earning job, and years of experience that all started at Keiser. I'm not just saying this I've been on this site long enough to know the ends and outs about nursing, and besides I worked in a one of Broward's best Healthcare system and trust and believe me. All there looking for is a Florida Board Of Nursing License with your name on it. Not Keiser, Broward College, Nova etc. They don't care what you GPA is either because in nursing the saying is C's get degrees.

    Best of luck to you and I hope you find a school that is worth your time and money.

    I'm glad to see this thread is still going on. I really needed to read this post. I too failed my first class. I decided to try other nursing programs but, none of them made me feel comfortable. I can only explain it like buying a good pair of shoes you know the kind that looks great on your feet, and feels so dam good your like oh yeah... I'm going to funk these!! Lol that's how I feel about the program am in.

    On the other hand I'm like yikes.... because I'm at one of the strictest campuses out off the whole entire college system in my county. I can do strict but sometimes it is way... to overboard. That played a huge part in me coming back to this school. However; I decided to bite the bullet. Now I can move forward. I will start in January 2015 a year later.

    God Bless everyone on this thread and don't give up on your dreams.
