My name is Tony and I am currently a Pre-Nursing student. I am less than a year away from completing all of my Nursing prerequisites for the BSN program at Arizona State University as well as at Chamberlain College of Nursing.
I have had a question on my mind for quite some time and have tried researching the answer but have been unable to locate the information I am looking for.
My question is simply put: With all community colleges on a two year wait and Arizona State University using its new multiplier system, should I not pursue these options and apply to Chamberlain College of Nursing?
I spoke with a nice lady who works in the Human Resources Department for Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. She is in the Nursing department of the hospital. She was kind enough to answer some of my questions that I had as well as inform me that the college I go to does not matter as much as the GPA that I earn and how well I use what I have been taught.
With that being said, should I not waste my time trying to apply to ASU's BSN program and apply to Chamberlain, instead?
I have a high GPA and I am confident in my ability to maintain my high GPA even through my science courses that I have left to take, so I feel I could have a strong application.
Where the anxiety comes in is with the new multiplier system and the amount of applicants that ASU receives each semester.
Is it even worth trying for nowadays?
Also, I am not a current ASU student as I am unable to afford to take my prerequisites at a university. I am finishing my prerequisites at the community college level.
I hope I explained my question well enough. If anyone feels like I should explain it better please let me know and I will do that.
Thank you for your time,
