    Very true. But in some cases, this is the best way to go about it, because there is no waiting list and you get in right away. I am also doing the study abroad program, so I will be getting the pell grant as well as my regular loan I took out. I took out 1 loan for this year, and next year when I go to Louisiana- I will not need a loan because I will get a free ride due to the fact that I had no income this year. It may be a pain to do it this way, but Ill still be done Dec '10 with my BSN.

    Hi. I'm a student from the caribbean and I'm thinking about attending IUON. I am currently in st. Kitts.....i'd like to know if there is a program where you can meet with a current student to talk to them about attending the schools. I'm kinda nervous about attending with all the negative comments i'm seeing.

    Just wanted to send a note. I went to IUON in 2006 to 2007, went on to sister school in the states. Grand Canyon University. IUON gave me a good start I sat for the NCLEX in 2009 and had my first job before I knew that I had passed the NCLEX.

    I think IUON could have used the Simulation lab more and the technology side of nursing is different between the two countries but nothing that can not be overcome. I currently work in ICU and have done well.

    The culture shock of returning to the States takes something to get use to, But I am so thankful for the training, the teachers and the small class room. It was difficult but good.

    Hey everyone

    I was looking for some feedback about the school... I am interested in attending BUT its a international school

    is it a good school?
    is it easy to get work after getting your degree and certification?
    Has anyone worked in California after going to school here?
    Has anyone tried to enroll into a CRNA program after attending? any problems?

    I just want to ensure myself that I will be able to apply for a CRNA program and be able to work in California if I go to school here!

    Thanks everyone

    I was just informed about IUON by my counselor and I am very interested in entering the BSN program in September 2012. I can see that many people on here have less than pleasant things to say about their experiences, but I know that they have made dramatic improvements to the program in the past couple years, so I was wondering if there were any recent graduates who could give me more information on the school or even share their experience with me? Thank you!
