- Apr 11, '11 by ohnevahanyone know how long it takes to find out if you got in after taking the TEAS exam?
- Apr 11, '11 by tojasminetook the teas 2/26/11 - letter mailed to me on 3/14/11.
- Apr 12, '11 by ritzygirldoes anyone know when they will start giving out replies to waitlist applicants? and/or what the process is?
- Apr 12, '11 by bkgrossoI was accepted to both BHSN and NVCC's program. I've decided to go with NVCC although I've secured a spot at Bridgeport, so this will open up a spot for those on the waiting list!!
- Apr 12, '11 by wannabenurrsseearound the end of this month until july the contact people on the waitlist. as the people who were already accepted decline their acceptance they will call the next most qualified. if you accept then you have to mail them the deposit with in 2 weeks and then they send you all the information about orientation
- Apr 13, '11 by momiscrazyI got in to NVCC too, but still plan on attending Bridgeport. I've just heard better things about them. One of my professors told me that I will have a hard time getting a job after Bridgeport if I don't get an AS degree also. Do you think that is true?? Does anyone know? I don't have any classes to take at Housatonic, nor will I have the time :/
- Apr 13, '11 by studentnurseCTI got into BHSN and GCC, I am leaning towards GCC but waiting for financial aid before I decide. Hopefully next week.
- Apr 13, '11 by bkgrossoI've heard good things about both schools. NVCC is literally 2 minutes from my house, and I know a few people who have gone through their program and have good things to say about it. I'm not sure if it's more difficult to get a job without an AD, but there is a possibility that Bridgeport would offer you a job.
- Apr 13, '11 by wannabenurrsseeAD and AS are the same for job purposes. not having a BSN is the bigger problem especially for acute care. for the specialties a lot require BSN as the minimum. SN jobs really help the hospital see how you work and if they like you they will most likely hire you. the CC also dont spend as much time in the hospital so if you are looking for acute care bhsn spends all the time in that setting. on the third day of school you are on a floor at the hospital at bhsn. also if you pretty good student and good clinical then bhsn offers a lot of students jobs if they want them because they are already trained to the system and know about procedures. there is good and bad with every school and you have to find one that is going to work for you. bhsn moves quick and works in the courses like nutrition and pharm into each course, not separately which i think ties everything together better but others like it better when they learn them as a course on its own like the CC. the best way really help you decide if to talk to a student because the teachers are always going to say that the way they do it is best.
for financial aid even if you get the most that is offered you still need to take out student loans for bhsn. the total is about 25000 for the 2 years and the most you can get a year for financial aid if 5500.
- Apr 13, '11 by momiscrazyThank you for your reply. I really love the idea of a hospital run nursing program and that was the main reason I applied there. I know it's more expensive but I've got to borrow the money anyway. What's few extra dollars? (haha) I have 3 friends at NVCC getting ready to graduate the program, so I've heard a bit about the program there. Bridgeport also offers in depth training in a particular area after graduation. Nobody else does that. I've heard really good things about the instructors and the staff at Bridgeport. I'm excited to start
Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear, I hope you hear great news soon!
Congratulations to those who made it in!
