I am going to JC right now and I am planning on transferring to the university of South Alabama (next fall 08'). I am just worried I won't get in with a 3.2. If anyone has any information, I would appreciate it. Thanks!! :typing... Read More

    I just finished talking to USA about the nursing program and they said for the traditional 4 year track they get 300-400 applications. They only have 120 seats. They said the top person on the waiting list had a 3.39, but DID get seated.

    Hope this helped

    FYI....I'm currently in the accelerated program at USA. I started in January at the Baldwin County campus (they accepted 24 and 17 actually started) but there is also a session that starts late summer (started7/21) on the Mobile campus and they accepted 40 people. You DO have to have a prior degree to even be considered at this point because of the number of applicants, but you'll also have to be interviewed. Totally doable though! I've enjoyed it and can't wait 'til graduation! Hope this info helps!

    I got the same answer from then about the cut off GPA being 3.39 for the traditional program. I have sent in my application along a lot more than they asked for. I'm volunteering at 2 hospitals working closely with patients. Each of them wrote me a recommendation letter. I even wrote a personal statement. However, my GPA isn't good cuz I got a bio-chemical engineering degree from UC Davis. It's around 3.11. I got laid off and don't see the future of being an engineer nomore so I want to switch fast. I hope I can get into the 1 year program.

    I am a graduate of USA accelerated ADN-BSN and went into the courses with a 3.23 GPA and through my 2 years came out with a 3.4. The course work is good and the clinical time is arranged by you and approved by faculty. My ex-wife got her FNP at USA and is now a very good practicing FNP, so it is as good as you make like any other college. The faculty works with you to get clinical hours and also to do course work. Good luck with your experience with USA.

    I will see you there then. I'm in CA and I will leave right after X-mas. Do you have a roommate by the way. I'm looking for a roommate to share the apartment in Arbor Gates. Are you interested? I'm a male thou.

    I will be in Fairhope by Jan. 2nd.

    I just talked to the staff yesterday and they told me that this one year BSN program has no break. The "break" is like a few days between modules. We still need to do the graduate coursework during those "Break" even if we are not planning to do the whole master. I don't think I can fly back to CA anytime during next year.
