Watts is a diploma only nursing school + an Asso. of Health Science from Univ. of Mt. Olive. Yes, you will need to get a BSN. Watts IS a hard school. I called it the Marines of nursing school while I was there. However, when you graduate you will be ready for anything the nursing world throws at you. You will have the critical thinking skills necessary to be a safe RN. There are so many hands-on experiences (the reason why you can't miss clinicals or labs). In the RDU area, Watts has the reputation of being a hard school, but their graduates are ready to start nursing as soon as they pass NCLEX. Their NCLEX 1st time pass rate is 98%. It's expensive, but well worth the money. The instructors are tough, but they want to see you succeed and will help you. I would spend the money on the Diploma, work as an RN for 1 year and then get the RN-BSN online at the cheapest school i.e. UNC-Wilmington, App State or Fayetteville State (the curriculum is the same at most of them).
It is really hard BUT it WILL have you being the most prepared coming out of school then the other nursing programs. I here it time and time again. This is a highly esteemed school. This is the place if you want to be a well informed and prepared nurse.
