Have you encountered a problem while applying to a particular nursing school? Please voice your issues and concerns under this post.
Here are a few common issues:
- Lost Application
- No Communication
- Rude Customer Service
"I applied to UTMB school of nursing and they received ALL of my application information. They were so backed up that they ended up losing my application and it never was processed. I tried calling and getting the matter resolved to no avail"
The United States is projected to have a nursing shortage that is expected to intensify as baby boomers age and the need for health care grows. Compounding the problem is the fact that nursing colleges and universities across the country are struggling to expand enrollment levels to meet the rising demand for nursing care.
The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is concerned about the shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs) and is working with schools, policy makers, kindred organizations, and the media to bring attention to this health care crisis.
