Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone has graduated from Oikos University in Oakland for their LVN program.

I would just like to know how you liked their theories and clinical rotations, I understand they are now an accredited program and I am hoping to be in their second cohort which begins in July '10.

If anyone has any input I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

C

pretty much everyone has heard about the shooting at oikos, but that was a personal grudge between an individual and the admin at the school and should not be a reflection on the school (much like when michelle lee was murdered by a friend while attending chabot). Unfortunatly a good amount of schools in the bay area are in dangerous places known for violence, especially oakland, what did you expect? Also, i suspect the low pass rate is due to a language barrior, most students are korean and speak korean studying for a complicated career in a foriegn language. I know the pass rate for the LVN program is low but have yet to check the RN pass rate. You have to really look into things before just doing a google search and putting up the first thing you see because the circumstances really do make a difference.

IF their passing score is below average, dont you think the school will be in danger of not getting accredited by the board? doesnt matter lvn or rn

Well said, you should check out the school yourself if your interested in knowing it more. I found that way much easier n faster.
