Ok, I am currently taking College Algebra will be done this December. I already have an AA and an AS degree in other fields (both from HCC in Tampa). I have taken all pre-reqs. My current GPA is about a 3.2-3.3 and assuming I get an A in College Algebra I'm looking at 3.4 tops. So my questions are, assuming all credit/pre-reqs Transfer over how long will the Nursing Core classes take. Also, do any of these schools offer a night program? I am married, have a 9-month-old, and I'm working Full-time. I already have $25k in student loans but am willing to take more on to finish quickly and enter the Nursing field as an RN. HCC is extremely competitive and my GPA is not high enough to apply to USF or UT and I don't see getting into HCC either (though I may try just in case). The hospitals in Tampa have set a 2016 deadline, that all new nurses entering must have a BSN. So I want to get my RN and start working and pursue my BSN and have the hospital pay it for me. Quite frankly I don't want to waste my time applying somewhere over and over. If I can get it and have loan cover my living expenses and not have to work then that's a sacrifice I'll make. I know the costs of education, that is not an issue for me as long as the loans will cover my other bills. So to all current students and/or graduates how long am I looking at? And what do you think I'd be paying for the Nursing core classes?
P.S. Sorry for the novel
And also I have contacted South University for the BSN program...not interested. They were more concerned about getting my $. I was 7 months pregnant at that time and the Admission Rep acted like I could start in 2 weeks with no problems...even though I was working and 7 MONTHS PREGNANT... So I won't consider them or the vague Concorde...
