How to get into Denver School of Nursing- BSN

  1. 0
    Hello-
    I am applying for the July 2013 start for the BSN program with previous college credit and I am so nervous about applying/trying to get into nursing school. I really want to go to DSN and do the BSN program with previous college credit, but nervous about the placement exam. I am looking for advice about getting in etc. I have a ton of awesome volunteer work, but no work experience in the hospital. I will have completed all pre reqs by May 2013- and all from a Colorado community college. I'm not nervous about the interview part- just want to get accepted! I have only applied to DSN and CU, but CU seems so much bigger and so hard to get into.
    Any advice will help!!!!!!!!!!!!!! about getting in, taking the exam, literally anything! On the website it says typical BSN programs with previous college credits will start in July 2013 and end in September 2014, is that true? Thanks!

    When I applied to DSN a few years ago they loaned me a study guide for the entrance test at my application meeting with Kelly. I came back about 3 weeks later and took the test and did ok. I didn't think it was that difficult but I did study for it. I think the July program that starts next year would graduate in April 2015 because the program is 21 months long. Don't be nervous! If your prereqs are OK you should be fine. Good luck!

    Hello NurseDenver!

    I was wondering how the interview process is like... do applicants meet with an interviewer and then take the hesi exam right after? or do they all get interviewed and then come back a few weeks after? I am wondering b/c I don't live in Denver and might have to fly out to Denver twice if this is the case. Also, how is the study guide that they give u to study off of? is it anything like the hesi a2 study guide? thanks!
