how long is the program? 16 months
how long did it take you to get in? (waitlist?) no waitlist. i applied in july and got accepted in september, then i started in january.
what was your gpa? my undergrad gpa was 3.5 with lots of good standing awards.
are you happy with the program? yes, overall. there are some things i hate though. i would definitely recommend doing an accelerated program if you can handle it.
how much does it cost (estimate for the whole program)? about $40,000.
just to add, after i graduated from college, i was considering getting my adn at our local community college. there are about 5 community colleges around here that have nursing programs
... all of them have a 3-4 year waiting list... so the high tuition of my program wasn't even a consideration, because i will be done and working 4 years ahead of the adn students.... plus, i'll have my bsn! i think it's an awesome opportunity.
