ASU's 12-month post-baccalaureate program is definitely moving forward! Applications are due Oct. 1 (But you need to apply NOW to the ASU School of Nutrition and Health Promotion as a Health Science- Healthy Lifestyles Coaching major and be admitted there in good standing before applying for this program!) There are only going to be 40 slots available. But this year's crop won't be nearly as competitive as later years will be (or the traditional BSN) because so few people know about it, or have all the necessary pre-reqs completed (or to be completed by end of this year).
The program will be SUPER expensive for 12 months (with books and fees and tuition it will probably be about $35,000!!!)...but I am stuck in Phoenix and cannot commute to NAU for their 12 month program, and really want to just be done with a BSN in 12 months.
The pre-reqs are: BIO 201/202, Chm101, Mic205/206, CDE 232 (Human Dev.), HCR220 (Intro to Nursing Health Sys), HCR 240(Human Pathology), NTR241 (Nutrition), PGS101 (Intro to Psy), Stats, and general studies that should mostly be satisfied by your prior BSN, such as College Math.
6 of the 10 courses must be complete by September 1, 2011, but all of the science classes (BIO 201, BIO 202, CHM 101, and MIC 205/206) must be completed by Sept. 1 for sure, and must have been taken no earlier than Dec. 2005 for Spring 2012 applications (within 7 years). The remaining 4 may be taken in the fall 2011 semester. All other classes must be completed by December 31, 2011 to begin the 12-month program in January 2012. In subsequent years you will need to have all 10 classes completed before the Oct.1 deadline.
To get an application, I think you have to set up an appointment with an advisor, by calling (602) 496-2644.
Despite the cost, I am super excited this program is moving forward. So, who is applying this year?
