Graduation Rate

Loading...
58%
ABOVE AVERAGE

St Joseph School of Nursing graduation rate is above the national average.

58% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to St Joseph School of Nursing completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Im about to be real in this review.Good: Easy "theory" class (quizzes and exams were sooo easy! I didn't even study one bit and i passed them all!) The teacher was sooo informative (sometimes maybe TOO much, and she would take some topics personal and becomes either laughters or arguments lol) You could meet some amazing people like i did!Bad: VERY VERY VERY Unorganize!! first, their front desk person is very unprofessional. He got a little too comfortable with our class and would talk like he's our friend. Kinda uncomfortable TBH Second, You pay about $2000+ for a class that doesn't really feel like it's worth that much money. Their supplies are cheap (Ex. books were said to be about $200 but when I looked it up it was just about $30 in Amazon and that's FOR BOTH TEXTBOOK AND WORKBOOK!!!) A lot of my colleagues had trouble with arrangements with the front desk person about their uniforms (they either wouldn't get them the right size or not get any uniforms at all and had to get their own uniforms out of their own pocket money OR doesn't give 2 sets when they were supposed to!) The director/owner doesn't seem to care about the school. When we need to talk about some legal or important issues that needs to be addressed, she's always not there. Not to mention that they had to move the school's locations and made their school even more unorganized in between our 6-week program. Third, we didn't get to our clinical sites until the 4th week of our program and the theory/skills/clinical schedules was just jumbled around. Then when we can finally go, They make us carpool to our clinical site which was 30-50mins away from the school (a whole different city). Some of us had to use their own gas which just doesn't make sense. They count the travel time as "clinical hours". Also, I dont know why but, They had a bad choice in clinical site because That site doesn't even teach us anything but the opposite of what we're going to be tested on. Fourth, the teacher was nice to me but i don't appreciate it when she snapped on some of my colleagues just for asking a simple question or when they just don't understand her instructions. I don't think she knows the difference between being a strict instructor and being a mean person. She does have her favorites so be at her good side of the class! Last, their school looks very unprofessional and isn't maintained well enough. their room/space for the whole school was making me feel claustrophobic because it's like you're going in a cave. The materials used for the skills lab (bed, soap, towels, washcloths, etc) aren't clean enough and it feels so nasty just touching them. (WEAR GLOVES! oh wait.. they're so cheap on that too they want you to reuse your gloves LOL) One time, one of our colleagues asked our instructor if the washcloths were washed recently because they all looked like they weren't (and they wipe the manikins with it... just imagine... ugh) and she told her to do it herself because its not her job. Later on that day we saw her washing the washcloths we used with COMET/AJAX CLEANSER (WTFFF!!) Those beds don't even work. When I had to take my state test, we had to pretend on getting the bed rails up, getting the head of the bed to a 90 degree, and putting the safe level for us to work with. It was so funny even the proctor was laughing at us.OVERALL: If you just want your certificate and take the state test to get your license, this would be a good school. BUT don't expect it to be the best school because it honestly is just for you to get the hours needed and go. Besides all that, I met some amazing colleagues in this school and they literally made the 6 weeks fun to push through.

I have not enrolled in the school yet but it is something I am considering. I called and was able to go and take a tour of their facility and I met with Nikki, who was very nice. She shared with me her background and her passion for nursing. My older sister is an RN and my grandmother was an RN. The tuition seems reasonable and I am so happy I met with them because I feel like this is something that can really happen for me. I want the flexible hours and great pay that nursing offers - all while helping people. Thx again, Nikki.
