    While Platt College is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing, they are not regionally accredited. If a school is not regionally accredited, then the credits earned will never transfer to a BSN or MSN program. Also, Platt College is very expensive. They are a private tech school, not a traditional college. You'll be able to work as an RN and gain licensure with Platt's state approval, but the credits simply won't be accepted to legitimate colleges and universities.

    I have known a few people to have gone through Platt's LPN and RN program and no one ever has anything good to say about their program--in fact my SIL went through the LPN program and would tell anyone to stay away from that school. It is just not a very well respected school. Oklahoma has a lot of good RN schools, Platt isn't one of them.

    I also agree with the above poster.

    Sometimes the fastest, isn't the best, especially when it comes to nursing. Actually that scares me to death.

    Platt just isn't well respected, I've known people who went through their other "degree" and certificate programs and were sorely disappointed. Not to mention how ridiculously expensive they are, they cost more than my BSN program does!!

    I've heard only bad things about Platt as well. What's the hurry? You should never rush a good thing! Enjoy learning.

    I just wanted to add that my mom worked as an RN at one of the major hospitals and they really had nothing good to say about that Platt LPN students. There are many problems as previous posters have mentioned, and I believe that Platt is one to avoid.
