    You are so lucky you didn't have Terry for lab! I HATED him!!! I did the hybrid too, but I had him for everything. One day we had a sub, she was AWESOME, we all did so much better on that test than any other after her class. Terry was such a jerk, not helpful, how is he the biology chair?!?! I've heard great things about Jodi Johnson, she teaches the Patho class, so I'm excited! You should see if you might be able to fit it in. Maybe email her and ask to check out a syllabus to see. A&P2 is MUCH easier than A&P1 in my opinion.

    Good luck, YAY for all of us! he-he
    Yeah, I can agree that terry is a bit of an ass. he doesn't reply to emails. I had to go over his head on something related to the Blackboard Vista and I feel it cost me a few points. Oh well. When i went to a review that he did, i found him to be a much better instructor that Judy. But I have him as the instructor for both the online lecture and lab for A&P2. I know, I Know, i should maybe at least try to take Patho at the same time. I guess worst comes to worst is I take it, fail it (which I doubt i could do) and then just take it at DSN.

    I'm not going to DSN but I wanted to comment about the hybrid A&P I took A&P 2 last year and I had Terry and he was awful in lab. My guess is he's the bio chair because he's better administratively than as a teacher, he certainly can't be any worse. We had subs twice (Jodi Johnson one time and someone else another time) and they were so much better.

    I also had Jodi for genetics (on-line) and she was very good with that class.

    i was on ais at fort logan this spring for my psych clinicals and i loved it! my clinical group was spread throughout the facility. i was with adolescents, a classmate of mine was on peds, and a couple other classmates were on the geriatric unit and we all had a great experience.

    I just wanted to let you guys know I am currently in my 3rd quarter and have had a good experience with DSN's BSN program. I just finished my Med/Surg I clinicals and was told we were some of the best students they have ever had. (They have had CU and Regis students at the facility also). Good luck!

    Hi brfdncrf1,

    I will be joining DSON in either Oct. or Jan. and I was wondering if we need to buy books and scrubs on our own or if the school provides it since they have charged us for it in the tuition. If the school provides it then do we get them during orientation??

    Dennis88 - OMG that is hilarious, yes Terry couldn't have been any worse as a teacher. I just had Jodi for my first Patho class today, she's awesome! Hopefully the class won't be "too" hard!

    bfrdncr41 - that is so wonderful to hear! I had really wanted to go to CU, but it just doesn't work with the timeframe I'm looking for, so it's so great to know DSN is doing such a great job preparing you guys!!! Can you give me an idea of your class/clinical schedule this quarter? Thanks so much!

    The schedules change dates and times every quarter, so I can't really tell you when you will have class. But you will have Patho and Pharm, which are 2x a week classes. Health Assessment and Topics of Professional Nursing are 1x a week. Health Assessment has a lab that runs about 3 hrs long. Hope this helps!

    Does any one know what hospitals clinicals are at? Since I am out of state, I am trying to figure out if I will need my car or if I can get by without one. Any advise?

    Hi! The clinicals are all over. I have been to close hospitals and far. I live in the suburbs but even my friends who live in Denver are sent all over the metro area. There is really no way to get through school with out a car. We did have one quarter with no students at any downtown hospitals. Sorry for breaking the news. Best wishes on starting school! I can tell you it will go by fast and it is hard but it is interesting and fun!

    i just received my acceptance letter last week for the accelerated bsn program at regis university for the january 2010 cohort. i am so excited and i can't wait to get started. it's hard to imagine that in less than 18 months i could be an rn! i would love to connect with some of the january 2010 cohort prior to class. also, does anyone have any advice for the accelerated program? can't wait to hear from you!

    where is Regis University.? i am waiting on mine from Shenadaoh University,

    I applied to the Metro accelerated BSN program (along with Regis and CU) and so far I have been very unimpressed with the staff. They have been unresponsive to e-mails. The application process is pretty convoluted (it would have been nice if they said ahead of time you need to apply to the university separate from the nurshing program), and now I'm having issues with things I didn't do because they weren't in the application instructions.

    So I'm wondering if this is indicative of the program itself or is just contained in the admissions process. Are there any current or former students here who can shed some light on how well or poorly the program is run?
