    Hi,

    Can you give an update on your career after graduating from Denver School of Nursing? Has anyone tried for Advanced degrees, such as a Master's, PhD, etc., can you please write about any issues that you may have run into with applications due to accreditation? Thanks.
    I can't speak for anyone else as I haven't gone through the program yet, but I can tell you they have plans for a MSN program in the near future at DSoN.

    Hi.. I got my acceptance letter for October 08 start date also but I am in the ADN program and then going right back to University of Phoenix for the BSN program.. I just want my degree then can do everything else online for finishing.. Someone mentioned getting a letter of acceptance to someone else ?!?! I had the same thing I got my letter than a girl named Danielle her acceptance letter also !!
    As for all the loans we have had a mortgage and sold our home in chicago but just to get a lower rate we are having my parents sign and we will pay each month now so it wont be as high when I graduate. It really is an investment for the future and once we are done with school we can start working !!! YEAH>..
    My question is, for the people who live in Denver and work, does Childrens take ADN ??? I worked in an PICU in Chicago for 7 years so I have the nursing assistant experience, but obviously not the RN experience. DSON told me they do not hire ADN and they do not do clinicals there either ?? Just wondering how true that is ?? Also is anyone else going to be in my class ?? A lot are doing the BSN, but I have not heard about ADN ??
    Thanks,

    Hi Meaghan,
    My name is June and I will be in the ADN class for fall 2008. I think we are in the same boat. I plan on getting my RN license and get my BSN from the University of Phoenix. I decided this route because I didn't have time to finish a couple of classes before the October deadline, and wanted to start work right away. Afterall, most hospitals will pay for you to get your BSN.
    Well, I hope to see you at orientation on Sept. 25th!
    June

    Hi angels&heaven122,
    Are you still planning on starting in Oct.2008? I just read your post and will be in the ADN class. Did you get all the requirements turned in yet? I'm excited about orientation. I wonder if you get class schedules that day? Anyways, hope to see you there. June

    The accreditation team was in the school last week. Still in the works - could know within 60 days (for national accreditation).

    That's a great news. This could attract more people to apply to DSON next year. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi,
    I will be attending DSN this fall 2008. I'm looking for a roommate. The house is located in Superior (about 35-40 mins from school). I'm hoping we could carpool and even study together. Let me know.
    Thanks,

    Hi June
    I'm attending the BSN program this fall too. I went to the orientation on Oct 26. I just found a place about 25 minutes away from school (Arvada). If you posted this 3 days ago, I would have called you for the roommate. Hopefully there is still someone who needs a room. I'm looking forward to see you at the first week assessment test on Friday.
    Good luck!

    i did get in but i didnt know how to get hold of you. I even went to registrations and they said they didnt know such a name but i guess it was due to confidentiality. Am always at school on thursdays at 0545 upto 10 in the Algebra class
