I applied for the spring program (the date was by sept 1) just anxious to find out how long it takes until they notify you.

Hello,

I applied to the spring program as well has anyone heard anything yet? I emailed them and they said mid-November.

Also, has anyone heard anything about them losing their accreditation? I have heard many rumors and I am hoping that they are false?

Could someone tell me more about the program and what it all involves? They really do not have a lot of information on their website and when I went to an informational session last spring I was not impressed. The two women leading it were very unorganized and did not have answers to many of the questions asked.

Does the program use simulation dummies to teach hands on techniques? How are the classes run, is there power points, hands on or just lecture?

If someone could please answer my questions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Cassie

I am currently in the program. We are undergoing re-accreditation by the NLN, that's probably where the rumors are coming from. This is a standard process that every school has to go through every seven years, I think it is. There is no reason not to expect to pass the re-accreditation.

As for the classes, there is more lecture time than lab time. The lectures are generally power point fests, although some of the teachers try to break things up a bit with group activities and such. There is a simulation lab with the dummies. They are upgrading some of the equipment (of course they had to raise student fees to do it :) ).

There have definitely been some bumps in the road, but overall it's been a very good experience. It's still a fairly new program (we're the seventh cohort) so they are still figuring some things out. The faculty has been great for the most part.

Hello,

Just wondering if anyone has heard if they have gotten into the Jan 2011 term? I still have not heard anything and I am getting a little anxious.

Thanks,

Cassie

I called Metro last week and they told me they were a little too ambitious in getting the letters out the by the first so it is delayed til mid November. :icon_roll It's okay, at least they picked up the phone which is more than other schools will do! Not too much longer now!

I love that they actually communicate, I cannot tell you how hard other schools are to get ahold of a real person!
