    COOL! Finally someone who is!! How did you decide on this program? I am considering starting in September or January. I've been a little weird about it just becuase no one seems to have heard of it or have any information about the school.

    How funny, I felt the same way! I was (and still am) a little nervous about it too for the same reason... no one seems to know anything about it! I found out about the program when I was researching Entry Level Masters programs (I eventually want to be a FNP). I contacted the school, but I was a little put off when I found out that their ELM program isn't a masters program (only if you continue on into their masters program, which is a separate program from the ELM). But learning more about it, there are a lot of things I like about the school, such as the evening classes and the evening/weekend clinicals. I'm a stay at home mom with two small babies, so I wanted to try to stay with them as much as possible during the weekdays.

    I'm finishing up all of my pre-reqs this summer, and then I'm enrolled to take their Chicano Studies class in Sept. And then I'll be ready to start in January. I'm going to apply to a couple of junior colleges as well just to have some options.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on it! Are you done with pre-reqs? Have you gone down to visit the school?

    so is anyone applying to there September start date? I currently am...but I don't know if I should cause I haven't found much information about the school! I live in Northern California so I'm not sure if it's worth the move...

    I would like to hear if there is any previous students that went to this school if possible!

    Thanks!

    So this program doesn't grant you any sort of degree? They said it only allows you to sit for the NCLEX, you have to pay more and take almost another year of classes to get a BSN. I think the cost is pretty steep too, almost like going to get an ABSN, without getting any real degree when the program is over.

    Really? Did you meet with a counselor? I'd hate to waste my time on this.

    I spoke to the admissions lady. She said you can get the BSN through them, but it's an additional 10-12 months (plus fees)
