    ojc--a small school out on the praire, small campus easy to find your way around. this is a school that really cares about their students. instructors? the best. the instructors doors are always open for questions or concerns. i would highly recommend it to anyone entering the program. i have not checked the pass rate lately, but you can at the website.

    feel free to ask me any questions about this wonderful school.

    Thanks Caroline for posting your stats!

    I am waiting to hear for the May 2010 cohort and we have the same stats (I also graduated in psych w a 3.5 and 4.0 in prereqs)! You just gave me hope! We are suppose to hear in the next week or so, so I am crossing my fingers!

    Thanks again!
    Have I missed something? I thought we won't hear from CUD until the end of march (for the Accelerated BSN and Traditional BSN program)?

    One-

    I received an email from the person looking over my application that once she was finished reviewing my application, she would email me again, sometime after Jan. 15th. I know not everyone has gotten this email though. For more info, go to the "Anyone applying to CU for 2010?" thread (sorry, i don't know how to insert the link to it).

    Best,

    Thank you for the info. Do you have any idea how far it is from colorado springs? I hear some people are commuting, so I know it is possible. I have a 9mth old and she will be 16mth old when I start this year so that is why I signed up for the part-time. Also wondering if you work while attending? Seems impossible.

    Ah, yes, I received the same e-mail. I believe they mean that they will let you know that your application is complete, acceptable (that you fulfilled all required prerequisites) and that it is now ready to be reviewed. When I spoke to my advisor regarding a transcript she said to expect the decision letter late March. The admissions committee will probably spend the next 2 months going through the applications to select the students they will offer admissions.

    My GPA was around 3.75. I have done some work in an Alzheimer home. I am also 35 years old. I truly feel they are looking for academically strong people but also people that have life experiences that will make them a good nurse or critical thinker. My essay illustrated my experience slightly but really went into detail about how life experiences made me the person I am today.

    I got my acceptance letter to UC Denver at the end of November 2009 in the priority review and was completely shocked!! I wish you all the best of luck and look forward to working with some of you in a few months! My start date is June 2010.

    I just received this email today regarding NLN accreditation so I wanted to update people on DSN's status:

    "Dear Students Staff and Faculty,

    The National League for Nursing Accreditation Council has announced that Denver School of Nursing has been granted 'Candidacy' status. Candidacy status allows us to proceed with our Self-study report that will be submitted to the NLN in a few months. We are scheduled to have a site survey by NLN reviewers in October of 2010. At that time, reviewers from the NLN will meet with students and faculty to determine if our program meets all of the NLN standards. We look forward to continuing to offer our students a quality education. Thanks goes to our faculty and staff for shouldering the responsibility of offering nursing education that is current, ethical, and at a very high standard."

    Hello,I have been doing a lot of research on their accredidation. I believe that the link that you posted just means that they are members of the NLN which is different than the NLNAC as stated on that website. THIS IS FROM THE FAQ PAGECan I pay my Agency Member dues and the NLNAC annual accreditation fee in one check to the NLN? No, because: NLNAC became a seperate entity January 1, 2001 NLN and NLNAC will bill separately for membership and accreditation fees respectively This link is that the NLNAC page list of schools with candidacy. The link you had was for NLN members which is not the accredidation page.http://www.nlnac.org/Forms/candidacy.aspThis is not to say that the page is completely up to date. They may indeed have candidacy but I have been checking this website and I havent seen them on there yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed since I am applying to DSN. Hopefully it happens soon!!!-VS
