We will be relocating maybe this summer at Flagstaff. I am yearning to apply at NAUs(Flagstaff)
RN-BSN program, however, the pre-requisites is making me discouraged, it is endless! In addition, you have to hold an AAS/Nursing diploma in order to apply. And the waiting list for the nursing program at MCC is atleast 18 months-2 years! Had done some researches of nursing programs that doesn't have any waiting list at Flagstaff, and I later found out that Coconino County Community College doesn't have a waiting list, BUT you have to have a CNA certificate. The CNA program takes 2-4 months, as I said, I am impatient
Just tonight,I found out that NAU offers a traditional BSN! I am so stupid that I didn't found this link of the Traditional BSN
program a few days ago!
Moreover, I find this route easier rather than taking the RN-BSN route because it doesn't have a WAITING LIST!, and no need to hold an AAS degree/nursing diploma; unless if you want to work right away and earn money.
I am planning to take MAT142(College Algebra), and hopefully be able to ace an A so that my "pre-reqs GPA" will somehow rise. With their pre-reqs courses it seems that I only have 7 remaining courses that needs to be completed!
• BIO/CHM w/ Lab;
• College Algebra;
• Developmental Psychology;
• Applied Nutrition;
• A & P I w/ Lab;
• A & P II w/ Lab;
• and Microbiology w/ Lab;
I just have some stuff to worry about on applying :
• I am only 20 y/o, don't hold an associate degree, don't have a GED(but I have a high school diploma), and haven't completed the AGEC. As a result, I have to complete their "course requirements"
• I haven't had Community/Volunteer experiences.
• Because I don't have community/volunteer experiences, how am I able to have two references?!
The last two is the criteria being used on how they select students:
So, has anyone taken/is taking this route? I will highly appreciate any response! Sorry for the long post!
**Note: I am currently completing the pre-reqs at Rio Salado CC, you might also have any suggestions on which pre-reqs course to take (example: BIO or CHEM; Applied Nutrition and Food Selection or Medical Nutrition)
