Nursing Schools in Colorado?

  1. 0
    I am viewing my college options and am willing to move to where ever I'm accepted into a nursing program. I currently live in Alaska, but if I am denied from all schools up here I will start to apply to schools else where. I was looking at Colorado or maybe Idaho, but don't know which school to apply to or look at. Any recommendations or input?

    I live in CO and it's crazy hard to get into school here. Nursing jobs are horrible to get as well. I didn't know any of this until I moved here. The only school I hear everyone is getting into fast is Denver School of Nursing. Many schools either have wait list or test to take to get in. The universities require very high GPAs. I know a few people that have applied to CU 2-3 times and then finally got accepted. Go on the CO forum and you can see what people say there. Good luck with your choice!

    Moved to CO Nursing Programs for more response.

    The University of Northern Colorado in Greeley has a great program at a smaller school. It is one of, if not the, cheapest in the state and has a consistently high NCLEX pass rate. The profs are great, clinical sites top notch and class size about 36. The nursing program is strictly based on GPA, and the last group cut off at about 3.7, I think. There is no wait list with acceptance every spring (classes start every summer/fall).

    Haven't been on this website in awhile!!

    Well, I ended getting my LPN license and I've been accepted into the UAA LPN to RN bridge program immediately after I graduated LPN school. After fall and spring semesters, I'll graduate as a RN in May of 2014! Yay! I didn't have to move out of state.

    Thanks for your input. I'm really glad I went for my LPN first, it really sped up the process and I didn't have to be put on a waiting list.

    If I was applying to CO schools from out of state (no in-state tuition), Regis University would be #1 on my list. Actually, it'd be #1 anyway.
