Metropolitan State Denver ANO 2012 applicants

  1. 0 Hello there,

    Just creating a thread to see if anyone who has applied to the ANO program wants to talk about it. I've looked around and haven't found much on it but was wondering if anyone wanted to share what they've learned. I know they're in a "warning" status from the NLNAC but apparently they've addressed all the necessary matters and are awaiting to be rejudged. Let's hear some thoughts!

    I did not attend that program, but I have the chance to regularly observe Metro students and compare them and their instructors to the other students doing clinicals at my hospital from CU and Regis. I see no difference in preparation or stress level between the 3 schools' students. This observation has made me feel pretty comfortable with pursuing the RN-BSN through Metro since it is the least expensive route.

    I applied to the ANO program and am crossing my fingers I get something in the mail in the next few days... does anyone know if they are sending out letters all at once or if they already have? Just getting nervous... I contacted the director of nursing there and she told me they had addressed all issues and should be good for when they go under review again.

    I received an admission e-mail the night of 10/31. Not sure when they'll send out a hardcopy.

    Hi ec, I was also accepted to the ANO! I was a little nervous about the accreditation but it does sound like they are taking all the right steps. I am an alternate for Regis and applied for their Spring start as well just in case! After CU turned me down I was very very relieved to have been accepted (Ecstatic, actually. It feels like I've been trying to get into nursing school forever!) as I have no idea how I would be able to afford Regis even though I would love to go there! I'm stressed enough at the prospect of quitting my job this December! Its awfully quiet on here about Metros program...

    Hey Carly,

    I totally understand your stress level, I actually just quit my job tonight!! I talked to the head of the program in depth and she provided me comfort in their continuing accreditation. I would agree with you in saying things are quiet on the western front but I don't know how many people use this forum. Like you, I've been trying to get into nursing school for awhile and it was a huge relief when I read my acceptance letter. I'm confident Metro will be granted continuing accreditation for they've had a long relationship with the NLN and have been working intimately with them on advancing their program. In all honesty, they probably needed this shake up and will do the program justice. Either way, I'm coming to Denver in January. Did you accept your seat?

    Sure did! There's no way I'd turn that down! Where are you coming from? I'm in Colorado so luckily I can stick it out for a bit longer with my job! If you need any help with acclimating or areas to live let me know looks like we'll be classmates!

    I agree, I don't think they'll lose it but there's always that fear. It sounds like a great program and I've never heard anything negative about it. Them being under watch just means we'll get the best!

    That's a good way of looking at it - we'll be getting a good education with them on their toes. It could also go against us if they're over critical but I don't see that happening. I'm moving from Detroit in early January with my girlfriend and we're looking for flats in Cheesman/Capitol Hill. I'm planning on using public transportation and I heard that area is pretty conducive for that so I hope it works out. My friend from Detroit who lives in Cheesman also said the area is real hip and pleasant to live in. How old are you? Background? It would be nice if others in our class would jump on this forum.

    I did some of my prerequisites with Metro and had extremely personable professors that enjoyed teaching and getting to know students, it was a great experience, which is why I ended up applying!Colfax's bus can be a little weird at times but mostly funny not scary! There's great places to live down there and tons of fun things to do! I miss living in Capitol Hill.I'm 25 from Colorado and graduated in December '10 from CU with a degree in Psych and always had the intention of nursing school afterwards. I decided I wanted to be a nurse not a counselor 2 years in so it was worth it to finish my degree and do my prerequisites I agree! But I guess we'll meet everyone soon enough!

    Hi there!,

    I wanted to congratulate you both on your acceptance to Metro! I was recently accepted, too, and can't wait to start! I'm glad there has been some information posted about Metro's NLN status. I attended an information session a while back, and it sounded like they were taking the necessary steps to fix it. Thank goodness! I attended a prerequisite class at Metro, and was very impressed. Metro just seems like the proper fit (of course, this is true after being rejected by CU). Anyway, looking forward to seeing everyone in January!

    -Mike

    Hi Mike!Congratulations to you as well! It definitely sounds like everything is going to be fine! I'm really excited to start as well despite the laundry list of things to do before hand. Are you in Denver/Colorado as well? Perhaps it would be good for us to make a Facebook group to get to know each other before the program starts?

    I was just thinking the same thing! I actually live about 5 minutes from Metro, so I'm pretty stoked about not having to burn tons of gas getting there. Do you live in Denver, or are you having to relocate?
