    RN-BSN programs are typically RN-to-BSN programs, i.e., degree completion. Plain ol' BSN programs (pre-licensure) would obviously require NCLEX.
    You made a salient point, Pixie. All of the schools I've listed on the front page offer degree completion programs (i.e. RN-to-BSN, BSN-to-MSN) for nurses who have already passed NCLEX many moons ago. Once you pass NCLEX you never need to retake it.

    Don't the proprietary schools do enough advertising on their own, already? Are we shilling for them now? How come no mention of any of the negatives of proprietary schools?
    Try a simple google search, it might help you. The author of this article already wrote at least one article covering as much.

    Higher education is free in many other countries...but we must pay for it here in the US.

    All schools are "for profit." I attended St. Louis University. It is a terrific school, but very pricey. MY my kids have all attended college. I even have one Ivy Leaguer in there. All were supported by big time loans. It is all a game and all tied up in the business of college financing. Employers pay for school, banks loan big bucks for school, the federal government is deeply involved, and the costs for all schools keep rising. There is money to be made and those ready to make it. Some of these schools are not giving a quality education. Others are turning a hefty profit, BUT students are getting a sound education. I now go to a state school in CA via online learning. It is very reasonable and I like the program a lot. People have to do their homework and decide if they want to put the time in to finish school quickly or have $ in the bank. IMHO, it is not worth the cost for something like Chamberlain for an RN to BSN when an accredited state school does the same thing for you for a lot less $. Of course, it may take longer. You have to decide what it is all worth.

    See advertisements at bottom of page.

    We need a new, not-for-profit nursing discussion board.
    Websites need advertisements to stay in business. Even facebook has them. If you don't want the ads I am pretty sure you can upgrade your account. I personally do not even notice the ads.

    This thread isn't an article. It's an infomercial. These schools have banners all over this website.
