- Hello all,
I know this is a old post but I just got into USF for spring 2012 with clinicals starting Spring 2013. I have some questions for those who are already there. Mine says its an 8 semester program but I am a transfer? perquisites are done but I have like 4 GE's left.
What did you guys do about financial aid as well?

It's true. It'll be 8 semesters. And no summer courses are offered. I was a transfer student and only took the USF required classes that you have to take at the campus (theology, philosophy, ethics). There's also two nursing classes that are 1 unit each which are required before moving onto clinicals. USF is the only school that I know which has three years of clinicals vs two yrs. for other places. It sucks to have to add on another four years of school before you're done with nursing school.
- Hey I couldn't reply to you for some reason. But okay, thank you. I'm stuck because I'm excited but It's so expensive! And I kind of want to wait on the CSU's.
Do you know if you could transfer out of there to another school when you are in the program by any chance? and what did you do about financial aid?
Fell free to email me
- Dec 10, '11 by dchow06Hi Avill,
It is quite expensive, but I think it's worth it. Classes are small and professors are great. I'm a transfer student as well. I got in for Spring '11 and will be starting clinicals spring '12. For this entire year, i took the nursing 1 unit classes (1 for each semester) so that i only paid per unit (rather than the 18k for being a full time student) and i had finished all my prereqs. With the extra time, you can pick up a minor. For me, i picked up a business minor and I worked a lot this entire year (so i could save up and pay for books!) I also took a literature class outside of USF so there's plenty of other things to fill up your time. The way I see it, I got into a program (and there's been so much competition). I've heard that professors aren't so great at CSUs and with all the budget cuts, I really don't know. (Not to bash on CSUs but this is what I've heard) But USF provides a lot of opportunities to network and get out there so I see this as a plus.
but yeah, it does suck to have to add another 4 years. If you are thinking about grad. school, USF has a joint program that gives you a masters in a year less I believe. and i heard this was for transfer students only.
I have no idea about transferring clinicals. but i know someone who took a few non-nursing related classes at USF while she was waitlisted at SFSU and transferred to there when a few people dropped out. I don't know how many, if even, the USF classes would transfer to CSUs.
- Dec 10, '11 by kha2I am in as well, the less than 1 year towards the master sounds ideal as a trade in for the four years!
- Dec 10, '11 by dchow06I believe its only for a masters to be a CNL.
Did you do your minor classes at USF as well?
