I put in my application to St Vincent's College for the pre-nursing a week ago. I just recieved a letter stating that I needed to go take a placement test on math. I already have my English 101 and currently taking 102. I was wondering what is the process of getting accepted and what are the chances. I am so anxious to find out if I'm going to get accepted or not.
Any school is expensive -correct, but St.V's is more expensive than the CC's. I took the MSA program @ St.V's about 2.5 years ago and it was $1800 then, now it's $3000- it's all about the money!!! After the MSA program I went on to take a&p 1 and 2, lifespan, religion, ethics, Nur101, Nur123 and Nur124 which I am currently taking. The common theme(s) at St.V's seem to be disorganization and instructors with ego's the size of bridgeport. I am 46 years old with some common sense and these instructors treat you like you are 10. I have heard from quite a few people that I used to be in some of my classes that have actually transferred to other institutions because of the instructors and the fact that they can change policy based on whim. My advise for people looking into St.V's would be to talk to everyone not just the people with good experiences but the people with not so good experiences as well, because you could become one of those people. Make sure to get everything in writing! Not all the instuctors were out for themselves, I can honestly say that Prof. * (I believe that we can't use names) she teaches A&P1 and 2, is probably the best Prof out of the bunch. She honestly wants to see you succeed and will bend over backwards to help you get to were you need to be and she lifts you up instead of dragging you down, excellent professor!!!
