Looks like a good program. Fully accredited and does not require a statistics class.:) If anyone knows anything about this program - post a msg. My main worry is that it is not accepted by some states - like the Excelsior BSN.
Hi! I also posted about this, but alas, got no response (sob). I don't know a whole lot about it (which is why I posted), but I do know that they are accredited and only require a math class of college level (like you said). From what I have heard, they are very "user friendly" and take a lot of college credits, and also get you out in 1.5-2yrs or less if you go full time. If I find out any more info I'll let you know. Have you emailed them for a syllabus?
I know quite a few nurses who did the Thomas Edison program and loved it!! These nurse had been Rn's for a while and really enjoyed how the program gave them the flexibility they needed.
Does anyone know whether the credits are good in other states besides NJ? I mean if I wanted to persue a master's in another state, would T.E. count? Or could I earn credits from TE and finish my BSN at another college? Thanks.
I believe they would transfer like any other college credits. Thomas Edison has a very good reputation in New Jersey.
Thanks for the post. I have not ordered their syllabus, have you? Happy to hear they are "user friendly"! I am finishing my ADN this year and would like to get the BSN ASAP while working full time - seems daunting - but with the right RN-BSN program I hope it will be doable. Excelsior is "doable" but scares me that Illinois and California do not accept it. T.Edison State seems like it might work? Just do not know enough about it or it's reputation.
I will email them for a syllabus. Again - thanks for the post and I also will let you know if I find out more.
Thank you for your replies, they really help!
I just recieved the undergrad. catalog and it says, "The program is accreditied by the NJ board of nursing and by the National league for Nursing (NLN) accrediting commission." The admissions office number is 1888 442-8372.
Thanks for the info - I will call them. Post as you find out more. Thanks again.
I am not seeing a clinical examination in this program...one of the daunting things about Excelsior was the 2 day clinical exam of skills (as well as the stats course and prereqs to stats...uggh) Anyone know for sure if an asessment of skills is required?
Looks like the most nurse friendly program around at first look... :)
I believe they have a two day clinical requirement also. My old nurse manager had to go and said it wasn't too bad.
