Recommendations fo Colo. nursing programs?

  1. 0 I live in Colorado and am almost done with prenursing classes. I'm struggling to figure out where I should look at nursing programs. I attend Arapahoe Community College and the program there is only an Associates. I have heard of other programs that are rumored to be quite expensive such as Denver School of Nursing and Platt College. Anyone have info to share or advice? I have to be able to use financial aid and student loans for school. No rich parents to help me out!

    There are a plethora of options ahead of you. No matter what route you take, be considerate of your gpa above all else. Personally, I found getting the adn, then bridging to the bsn to be the MOST affordable route. Most bridge programs are online an allow you to work during it. A lot of BSN programs are so intensive working is strongly ill advised. I'm not sure of your region but where i live, north Mississippi, adn programs are rampant and most cost about $1,000 a semester. State schools and other bsn programs cost around $5,000-$6,000/semester for full time status.

    Honestly, with the flood of applicants to the medical field, I would apply to every nursing program within a 100mile radius....but that's just me.

    Good luck and keep us posted!
