Touro's Entry Level Masters Program ?

U.S.A. Nevada

Published

Can anyone please tell me if the ELM program is still available at Touro ? I would like to apply for March. The BSN and BSN-MSN and RN-BSN program are all listed on their website but i can't find any mention on the ELM program anymore. If it is still available, is it considered a graduate program, i need to know for financial aid purposes. You see, i can't receive much aid for undergrad programs but i can receive substantially more for graduate programs since i already have a graduate degree. Please share, i am never able to get a hold of anyone in the nursing department. I'll probably need to fly down to Henderson from Reno just to get some answers from them and not speak to someone's voicemail :rolleyes:.

Hi Clam27,

yes i did get a hold of Admissions after numerous attempts. Unfortunatley they are no longer offering the entry level Masters Program. They didn't give me any reason as to why but its no longer an option. Do you know any other schools in nevada offering such a program ?

Oh no, that is unfortunate. Even more unfortunately, I am not aware of any other such programs around the area. I'm sorry I couldn't have been more help. But thank you for your reponse.

Good luck with your nursing school endeavors!!! And good luck with Touro!!!

The ELM program was false advertising at its most egregious. In fact, there was only one class who ever graduated who fell under the description of ELM. The rest of us were screwed. Screwed in terms of financial aid, screwed in terms of having a class that was at least 2 times too large (all with entry-level BSN students who didn't know their ass from their elbow), and screwed because we were promised small class sizes, all students with prior 4-year degrees, etc., etc., etc.

But, that's over now, and I'm moving on. However, I am NOT doing the master's degree. The time required to finish has changed, tuition has increased to an unmanageable level, and to me, it offers nothing. So, while I have met some amazing instructors, I feel it is not worth my time, nor my good name, to be affiliated with this dog and pony show. I am, however, at least glad that I will be able to take the NCLEX and move on to become an RN, the first of many steps in my career goals. I have also met some awesome, life-long friends. Thank goodness for that!!

I felt that I learned very little from the program that I didn't either come into it already knowing, or that I hadn't self-taught. Many others felt the same way. Hopefully things will improve. I don't believe nursing should be spoon-fed, but I do believe that instructors should teach....especially when tuition costs as much as it does.

Please don't let my negative comments deter you from going to this school. Many students had excellent experiences, and I was just hoping for a more intellectually demanding program, nerd that I am. Also, when promises are made by administration over and over again, and not kept, I tend to get cranky.

So, get involved in student government, get involved in as many committes as you can, and do as much as you can to make the school a better place than it was when you started. It's not a bad place, I just had hoped for a better education.

Peace out...you'll do well!!

Thanks for the info, i was really disappointed when i found out that the program (ELM) was no longer offered. They didn't give a reason as to why. I didn't realize only one class graduated ELM since the program has been going on for a while.

Good luck in your decision on a school! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. However, once you get in, get through, etc., hopefully the economy will be looking up and jobs will be easier to be found. So, there's always a silver lining!!!
