Gordon's ADN program......

  1. Hi,
    Future nursing student here. I'm going to a campus visit day at Gordon soon. Has anyone heard positive things about their ADN program? I live about an hour and 15 minutes from there.

    I have only heard great things about Gordon's nursing program. Get as many details about the application process in person because their website is not up to date. I ran into a few glitches when I applied. I was accepted, but chose another school due to distance. Good luck and don't wait til the last minute to get all your stuff in.

    Class of 2006 here and Gordon's program is awesome. Their NCLEX pass rate for 2006 is like 95%. The teachers are awesome. They pretty much have an open door policy so if you need to talk to them, cry, get extra help whatever they are available. It can be stressful but what nursing program isnt!! Good luck to you and congradulations in advance.

    Good Luck.

    1996 graduate here. excellent program, and should you choose, they have a teleschool program with augusta, ga georgia medical college for BSN bridge program...

    Last I heard, they had the highest percentage of passing on nclex on first attempt of any adn program in state of georgia.

    How hard was it to get into this program? What do they look for. I looked at their website and there is not much info to go by. Thanks

    It mostly depends on your GPA. They mostly require at least a 3.0 or higher, they get accepted first then they work down. The first year I had a 2.8 and I was put on the waiting list but I never got in. So I reapplied for the Fall and got in. I am in my 2nd semester and I should graduate in May 08.

    Paper work wise, pretty easy not much at all. Good Luck... Feel free to ask questions....

    I can tell you how I Liked it! I graduated about this time last year from their program. It was hard, stressful, and sometimes (yes sometimes) fun! The teachers were (and the ones who are still there are) great. They are supportive and take the time to teach. It is a lot of information at one time so stay organized. Stay on top of your assingments and READ YOURE BOOK! Take notes. If you like to study with a group...find a good study group! (You'll need their support) Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't get caught up in other people's negativity. Leave whatever is going on at home or at work there when your'e in class or studying. Goodness...the list goes on and on. Oh....take breaks between your'e studying. Craming is never...ever good!!

    FYI: My study group consisted of 4 other women. We would bring food to our study group (usually fast food cause you have no time to cook). We'd quiz eachother, go over our notes, do practice questions out of our NCLEX books, talk about how stressed out we were and at the end of every semester we would have a small party at a nice restaurant somewhere to destress and celebrate.

    P.S There's a great wings place in downtown Barnesville that cater's to students if you need to take a break and get off the campus for awhile. They have .25 wings on Tuesday and free ice tea to Gordon Students! Their Ice Tea is great.
