    Hi everyone! I got my acceptance letter for BHSN last week! Looking forward to meeting some of you soonish. I know they said they send out orientation packets in May, does anyone have any idea for when they actually have orientation?

    So I went to see my advisor(nursing) at nvcc yesterday and I think she talked me into going to nvcc if I get accepted. My major decision maker is that I have 5 school age children who need to catch the bus. My oldest is 13 and will be catching the bus at 6:30, my other four catch the bus much later. At bhsn every class starts early(evening classes are not an option) so I would have to find them morning child care(not having luck with that) or a babysitter for almost everyday of the week. At nvcc only two days a week I would have to find them child care, the other two days would start at 11. Also, a four of the classes are OLCR(online with campus requirement) or hybrid, and the times I would have to go in are during the day. It just seems like a better fit for my life right now. I really want to go to bhsn, but nvcc seems like the more wise choice and less stressful for me, Lord knows I won't need extra stress,lol. I should know next week, I'll keep you all updated

    At BHSN class usually starts at 8:30AM, clinical days usually start at 7:30AM. There are only 2 or 3 clinical days that are early ~6:45AM.

    Three of my kids do not get on the bus till 8:35, so that means everyday of class/clinical I would have to find them a sitter or daycare. At least at nvcc I would only have to worry about two days and half the classes I can take online.

    That's tough, I have 2 kids that we need to off to school, so I can only imagine caring for five... I hope NVCC works out for you. I also applied there, but BHSN was my first choice, so I'm so thankful I got in. Not sure if you were part of the other conversation about the temp feature where you could view your status on commnet, but it looks like I'm waitlisted (thank goodness I didn't put all my eggs in one basket!). Best of luck to you, I'm really hoping you get in!!!

    @joneykaden89, thank you, it was a tough decision, but one that is best for me and my family.(that is if I get in to nvcc,ha) I did get to the link, but it only showed my met requirements and to check back often to find out my status. Good luck at bhsn

    For those of you who have filled out your FAFSA.... I did mine about 3 weeks ago & got a confirmation that they received it & reviewed it. When do we hear anything else? All I really want to make sure about is that I am eligible for regular, unsubsidized loans. Does anyone know if we hear back from BHSN about that or what?

    I am so excited I can hardly contain myself

    Hope everyone on the waitlist hears back soon- this must be absolutely killer to have to wait so long!!!! GOOD LUCK!
