I went to the nursing seminar at Goodwin for ASN and it almost seemed like a scam. You don't have to take your pre-recs with them, but you miss out on up to 11 of the 27 points need for competitive admission. Their courses are about $100 more per credit which means it would cost me a minimum of $1,100 extra just for the pre-recs I need compared to other CCs around. You are also only allowed one nursing class per semester, five semesters total. But each semester is only 6 credits. It seems like that is so slow.
Other silly things:
-You need Algebra 1 & 2 OR Math 125 (nursing math)- Statistics from other colleges transfers as Math 125, but does not count in your pre-recs. That doesn't even make sense!
-You are "supposed" to have all your pre-recs and your "other" courses (english, psych, soc, etc) done before you start the nursing courses. That is a total of 47 credits before nursing. I could be at Goodwin until I die!
I thought GC was going to be a good choice for me, but the steps to get in are seemingly ridiculous. The admissions officer is supposed to call today to follow up, but I don't think the outlook is going to be any brighter after our talk.

hello, i was there too. it's amazing how expensive this school is. each credit is $430.00. so the total of one class is ex: english 101 is 3 credits the total will be $1290.00 for one class not including books.
that worst thing that i learned was the, you have to have a least 4 classes not credits but classes with them so you could be consider to be a potential nurse student.
i myself finish all my pre-req. but i went to the seminar to see what they offer just in case i don't hear anything from other places that i have applied already. i spoke with one of the girl from the seminar and she told me, that i will have to take 4 classes in order to be considering their students. her words were as follow: " is a catch 22..you need to take those 4 classes for us to consider you" are you kidding me....that sad thing is that even if you take those classes there no community college in us or university will recognize those. i don't know how legal is that....but i’m sure that i am not paying for their new building...and fancy classrooms...stick with the cc from ct ...those are there because we pay taxes.
