Wanted to know everyone's opinion on just the nursing program. Not other programs offered. Since they are accredited and OMHS has RN's working there from daymar, what is everyone's thoughts? I'm considering going

My friend received her RN from Daymar. I think if your looking for a quicker way to get your RN, and do not want to climb the career ladder, do it. However - if you want to climb any career ladder later in life....stop thinking about Daymer and go to OCC then WKU for your Bachelor of nursing. I could be wrong, but when you go to transfer credits you are NOT going to be happy when you have to start all over because those credits do not transfer. Give some thoughts to your goals.
With that said .... Know their program is hard as all RN's have to pass the state exam the same way.

Your credits will not transfer so I would go to OCC. I have a friend who went to Daymar and pretty much threw her $ away. Her degree is useless!

I am only looking to get my associates. I know daymar offers the online BSN, but I would be fine with my associates.

I know daymar is more expensive, but I'm co spidering going because I heard their schedule is less days a week since they go year round through the summer. That would work best since my husband works thirds, I'd have more time with the kids and to study

Keep in mind that you might want to eventually transfer to a BSN program bc many places are now requiring a BSN for nee hires

First off. From what I understand u can get ur b.s. and move forward career wise. Call the schools of ur desire. Don't look a topix for news or fair honest opinions. Ppl are pretty sad. This is a stomping ground for negative ppl.

Thank you! I've heard it all from daymar is a rip off Bc of the cost to they aren't accredited. It's my choice to pay more especially if the schedule works better for my family. They are accredited I checked the ky board of nursing site. I was hoping maybe some current students or ones that have graduated from there would comment

I did not think I was being negative at all...I just just covering bases and providing information. The other post concurred with my statement about transferring credits to continue education. My friend that graduated from Daymer is working successfully at a hospital. Like I had said, it's the same state board exam for everyone.

I didn't mean you were being negative. I'm just talking in general about when I mention maybe going to daymar, the reactions I get

Daymar's nursing program is hard core, but it's been worth it. Wouldn't change it for nothing!

Daymar is accredited. And credits transferring depends on the school accepting. I know someone who went to occ years ago and occ won't accept their own credits. The student is having to start all over. Daymar has a great nursing program. Call the school and just talk to someone. They can hook you up with graduates to talk to that went through the same program.

OCC will accept their own credits, but the classes have to meet the requirements for the degree you're seeking. You have to have certain classes to graduate.

FYI - please, for yourself, check it out further. Daymar is under investigation by the Ky Attorney General. http://migration.kentucky.gov/newsroom/ag/day...

That has been going on since 2010. The nursing is accredited, it's on the ky board of nursing website, they have been very open about no guarantee of credits transferring etc. so I feel fine with it.

No they were gen ed classes. OCC doesn't get criticized because it's a state school. They can do what they want and say what they want.
