Answers to lots of questions regarding SMU ABSN

  1. 0
    Hi all! I just graduated from the ABSN program last week. I've received some emails through allnurses about the ABSN program. I compiled many of my responses into a google doc. Check it out if you're interested in the program and let me know are other topics you'd like me to add/questions you'd like answered.

    Best of luck to you!

    First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I know its hard for nursing students to respond to a million questions from applicants like myself, so it is very helpful to have everything in one place.

    I have a few additional questions-
    -For the clinicals, why did you chose to do a cohort? What are the pro/cons for choosing a cohort vs. not?
    -Do you select your concentration for the preceptorship? You said you "ended up" on an oncology unit, was that by choice or do you pretty much go where there is room?
    -From your responses I think that you will not have clinical and class on the same day, is that correct?
    -Also, if you don't mind me asking, what is your previous bachelors in? Since you did so well in the program, I am wondering if you had a science degree.
    -This is kind of a random one, but is there a student health center (like if you get the flu, for prescriptions, etc)? I am at SFSU now and having the student health center has been amazing, but as far as I can tell from the website, only the Oakland SMU campus has a health center.

    Again, I cannot thank you enough for posting your reposes!
    Good luck on the NCLEX and finding a job!
