Has anyone attended or heard of National Univesity in Fresno, CA? They have this program there and its accredited through CA BON. I just wanted to know more about it and your experiences.
That's why I did the private route too. There just isn't enough space in CC and it takes longer to get pre reqs done.
The classes are pretty expensive at around 1400 per lecture class. I took 5 classes and 3 labs (for A&P I, A&P II, and Micro) and its come out to around 8,000 bucks.
I've been told the program itself will come out to more or less 35,000 (YEPP!) but quite a few working RNs have told me that if I find a job and dont spend like crazy then it shouldn't be hard to pay it off in 2 or 3 years (thankfully my parents are willing to help out too so I wont have my head underwater too much).
I took the night schedule for classes so I went twice a week from 5:30 to 10pm. They sometimes also have Saturday sessions too. I started these pre reqs Last Nov. and took my final class in June so its taken 8 months more or less. I just got an email today that I'm invited back for my essay and teas so I'll likely find out maybe month after whether I got in or not. BTW if you apply I suggest taking the Teas else where a few months before you take it at national...that way you know what to expect and if you get a good score you're allowed turn in that one instead of the score you get at national. (I took it at Fresno State in March and got an 80, if I do better at national I'll turn in that one or else I'll just turn in the 80).
You should talk to one of the advisors there and see which of your classes are transferable. I suggest ------------- cus he knows his stuff (in my opinion two of the advisors there dont put much effort into helping a student out). A 3.9 gpa is great (thats what I have too). If you can get some of your classes transfered and take the rest asap then you might make the January deadline for the next cohort.
