I was hoping to delve a little deeper into a discussion regarding Eagle Gate College. I know there are a few similar posts already but I wanted to talk a little more specifically about this college.
Here is the background info. I am California-based, on the verge of completing a local LVN/LPN program, and I am doing my homework to find the best program for me to continue on to RN afterwards. I attend a for-profit tech/vocational school with an accelerated LVN program. We were told about our school’s expansion school, which happens to be Eagle Gate College in Utah, as a cheaper alternative for an accelerated BSN program. I have already spoken to the school regarding pricing and everything and it seems like a good deal. However, upon looking at the reviews of the school, a few of them said that they were unable to do anything with the degrees/certificates they obtained at Eagle Gate due to accreditation. On the flip side, a few more recent reviews read as positive experiences from the school.
So finally to my questions, I am by no means an expert on the whole accreditation system, I know there are different levels but I am unsure how that whole thing works.
1) For those of you who are more savvy with the education/accreditation system, will a BSN from Eagle Gate College be recognized by employers/other schools?
As a bonus question,
2) Will a BSN from Eagle Gate be transferable to other states? Like if I decide to move back to California after?
If you’ve made it to the end thank you for reading it all! And thanks in advance for any replies!
I am seriously considering making the move from California and getting into this program, so I just want to make sure I’m not shooting myself in the foot.
