    Hello!!!
    I am new to this website but I am in love with it!!
    I love how the community is so helpful and how people exchange sufficient information with each other
    Anyway! I am really interested in National University and I am thinking to take the pre reqs next spring (since i am currently finishing up my BA in psychology from cal state fullerton and I want to apply to their second degree B.S.N. program)
    But the thing is, I am VERY confused. Since I am new to the scene I am scared of 'making all the wrong choices' I am single, young and i THINK i can succeed at NU's fast paced and intense courses. Everytime i talk to the advisor at NU she doesn't seem interested in my goals AT ALL. I feel like her goal is to just get money out of me and the rest doesnt really matter. I understand that it is a private college and money is a big issue, but this second degree program would be ideal for me, so am not really concerned about her attitude toward my goals but it still just makes me kinda uncomfortable.
    I really want to know your peoples' experiences at NU; the pre reqs, the TEAS test, the second degree BSN program, the professors, the environment. I would greatly appreciate and be grateful for all the honest feedback!
    I seriously need some guidance in this matter, so please share!!!!
    thank you so much

    Hi Danam28- many of us are just about to start this program next month, so can't give you too much feedback on the actual program (I think most of the current students are too busy with schoolwork! ). I took a couple pre-reqs at National and they were so-so. I had the same prof for both and he wasn't the best, but I knwo that some of the other profs are excellent. I'd suggest reading abck through some of the older posts to get an answer to some of your classes. Taking pre-reqs elsewhere can save time and money.

    As for your advisor- I think there are a lot of people who have had similar experiences with their general advisors, including me. Mine is not very helpful or enthusiastic. The good news is that you really don't need to deal with them all that much since you're assigned a nursing advisor once you're accepted into the program.

    Hope this helps! Good luck!

    National's School of Nursing (clickly linky) offers the program in San Diego at their Rancho Bernardo campus.
    how often do they accept nursing candiates?
    They accept applications four times a year. I'm not positive, but I believe the next application period is in November. If you go to the Nursing information forum (clicky linky) they will tell you when the upcoming application periods are.
    What is the schedule, once selective? do you pick your own schedule? do they offer evening classes?
    I'll have to let someone else answer this one. All I know about class scheduling is that they ask students to be flexible on their schedules.
    and where is there a accredited school in SD that offer a&p and micro, possibly online that transfers to national? lol sorry for all the questions, im new to the area
    There are loads of community colleges in San Diego, so I can't tell you where they all are (maybe do a google search so you can see which ones are near you).
    Once you have chosen a community college, National has a neat little application (clicky linky) that lets you see what classes will transfer from many schools. Find the school you are thinking of attending on the drop down menu and click "Get College Information". National's A&P and Micro are Bio201, 202, 203 and the labs are Bio201A, 202A and 203A and their equivalents can be found for your chosen school under area F- Physical and Biological Sciences.
    I don't know about online classes, but if you take the core sciences with National you can have them completed in 6 months vs. 3 traditional semesters.

    Good luck!

    I have a question for those who have already attended the orientation. For Cohort 25, it is not until November. Are there any vacation breaks during the 22 months? My MIL wants to plan a family vacation and I told her that there isn't a lot of time off but I wanted to know if there are any week long breaks and if so, when. Thanks for any help!
