Colorado State University - Pueblo Accelerated BSN

  1. Hey, I know there are some other threads out there on CSU-Pueblo, but I am looking to apply to the 2014 summer program and I was wondering if anyone else on here was looking at that program?

    This is for the accelerated 12 month 2nd degree BSN program. I am also curious to people who have applied and have been accepted in the past, did you have all of your pre-reqs completed when you applied? If not, how many would you say were completed and what types of grades did you have?

    I have a 3.567 GPA from my previous degree and mostly A's on my science pre-reqs. By the end of this spring term I'll have the minimum amount of pre-req credits required to apply (14 = A&P 1 & 2, lifespan psychology, and a foreign language) should I go ahead and apply then? Or wait until after my summer class and have another class completed under my belt? I was planning on taking Chemistry over the summer.

    You can go ahead and apply without having completed all of the classes, as long as you have a plan to complete them. I am finishing my last 3 classes right now before the program starts. I don't know if the application is open yet, but it closes in Oct. I got my acceptance in Dec, and will be starting in May.

    Hopeful, what did you do for your patho pre-req requirement? Were they picky about it?

    Hello All, I am also planning on applying to this program. I visited the campus over the long July 4th weekend (my husband and I live in Boulder). It seems like a very solid program, and their accreditation is stable (not like Metro State's program, which is on warning). Also, Pueblo is the most reasonable in price. I've been applying to CU Denver for three cycles now, and will also be applying to Metro State. Pueblo will probably be my last choice, just because of the distance (I would have to move to Pueblo, while my husband would remain in Boulder). I am still excited to have it as an option! Who else is applying? If you are in the program, what has your experience been?
