NAU/MCCD or ASU/MCCD CEP program - page 3

I am trying to find out which is a better program and which one is cheaper. I already have a BS in Family & Human Development so I have most of the pre-req's completed for the program. Since this... Read More

    I tried sending you a PM but I don't think you can receive since you don't have a subscription.

    Lovebug, I took CHM 130 and BIO 201 together and OMG I sooooo regretted it! I took them both in person but it was so hard to study for both. I did have a 4.0 before last semester and then doubled up on the science classes and ended up getting a C in BIO 201 and an A in CHM. Clearly I studied for one more than the other O_o Ugh. I may have to repeat BIO 201 so if I had to do it over again I would spread it out between the 2 semesters. FON 241 is easy though - it was a great class to take!

    Did you look into ASU's Bachelors to BSN bridge program? Last I heard it wasn't very competitive to get in at all because it was so new. It is for people that already have bachelor's and want a BSN.

    I took BIO 201 by itself last semester because I knew it would be a LOT of work. And I managed to get an A but just barely. I am taking BIO 202 and CHM 130 online this semester but I also have my husband to help me with the chem so that might be the good part about taking those two classes together. If FON 241 is super easy I may end up taking it in the summer, I don't want to do too much with my science classes.

    I haven't looked into it, but my main problem is I will be paying for this degree out of my own pocket and I know that ASU can be expensive. That's where my first bachelors is from.

    Good luck...I'm starting the NAU CEP program this summer and I went with it rather than the ASU program mostly because of the cost (yes, ASU is more than double the cost)...I'll let you know how it goes...

    ddmad, did you have to wait a long time to be placed? And at what location are you at? I have the Fall semester to finish before I can apply.

    My husband is also active navy stationed at north island. The kids and I live here and he commutes each weekend (except duty weekends). There is a nursing program at San Diego city college you should look into. Cheap classes, in SD. Can't beat it. Good luck!

    Hi Lsmith!

    I have looked into SDCC however, with being a mother with a son going to nursing school and not knowing if my husband will be home to watch our son is hard. I am also considering moving with family when my husband goes on deployment next year. The nursing here in SD is more competitive as well. Waiting it out seems like the best thing for me to do with only one car and a son.
