    I got into NU, but after thinking about the cost and everything I decided on CSU San Marcos. How about you?!

    Hello there,

    I am new to allnurses.com. I recently started my application process with NU. Is there anyone here that attended NU ABSN program? How was it?

    Hello, I was hoping to apply and attend to he nursing program. I'll have a part time job while completing my pre reqs but how does one succeed in the program and still manage to provide for themselves financially? Do you recommend the program? How did you do it, or hear people doing it? I'll be supporting 40% of the bills split between my fiancé and I and we're worried about what is to come if I get accepted into the program. (I've heard that they advise you to quit your job because you won't have time for it and will not succeed in the program) I'm in dire need of help ! Was the program worth it? Also, do hospitals shy away from national graduates? Thank you so much in advance

    CAn I ask some questions here about National Univ? Am I blind, or are all of their prereq requirements not on the website? I emailed the admissions office and they gave me a ton of info that did not answer any of my questions.

    I specifically asked what the prereqs were?
    If the accept prereqs completed online thru another school?
    How long the ABSN program is?

    He sent me a list of prereqs, but they're all abbreviated and I have no clue what the stand for. Also, is Spanish part of the prereqs?

    Pre-reqs are Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Psychology, Sociology, Speech and Statistics

    When I called, I was told that the program is 22 months long for the ABSN and around $40K. Yes, they will accept pre-reqs from another school. First you have to attend a Nursing Forum (info session) and then you can schedule to meet with a counselor and they'll go over your transcripts. Spanish is not a pre-req. The next cohort application is due in July and starts around September or October.

    The Generic Entry BSN program is 22 months and about 40k. The LVN-BSN program is 15 months and about 30k. It is possible to work and be in the program. So far the program is ok. There's a lot of material to absorb. I recommend taking the TEAS at SDSU instead of NU the test is a lot easier there. You can take the TEAS as many times as you want outside of NU. You can take the TEAS everyday at SDSU if you want to get the score you want. I highly recommend the ATI book. Don't bother with any other study materials. The science portion is mainly high school science. It has nothing to do with nursing science like anatomy. I'm finishing up my pharmacology class right now and will start med-surg II Tuesday. That's suppose to be the make it or break it class.

    Spanish in the work place is a prerequisite for the nursing program. I recommend meeting with a counselor and submitting your transcript to see what would be transferable. I don't recommend going to the pre nursing forum until you're almost done with your prerequisites because you have to attend the forum within a year of applying to the nursing program.
