    I am planning on applying to Daley and Truman. Do you know what the average GPA is that they accept into the program.

    Don't go to Daley College!!!! 90 of us started their nursing program, by second year we lost 43 students. Horrible lectures!!!!!!!!!! The second year of nursing school are set up with all your classes being lectured together. Meaning...16 weeks of OB and Med/Surge and than Psych and Med/Surge. Too much information all at once and the most important lectures are horrible!!! We now know why it is set up that way...to fail. Truman would be the better choice. At least they are set up on 8 week lectures of one topic only. Less stressful and you can retain the information better.

    Why was almost half of the students lost ? What happened ? On a scale of 1 to 10, what would you rate Daley's Nursing Program ? Can you give me a little more info on the program and how was your experience with it. I was accepted to both Daley and Truman and Im trying to decide on which to choose. Thank you !!! The only thing about Truman would be the long commute especially back and forth to the clinical sites. Its good that students can get off at Wilson on the red line and walk about 50 feet to the left and the college is right there. Did anyone you know attend Truman and they told you that they have at least 8 weeks lectures on each separate topic.

    Hey BabygirlChas,
    It looks like you have a choice that needs to be made quick . I just wanted to give my opinion. IF Truman will not be a problem for you as far as commutting, then I say choose Truman. The only thing is, when you have clinicals in your second year, it might be a little hectic (due to clinicals being more than once a week in the 2nd yr.) as far as commute is concern.
    I read that you attended Truman and Daley orientations. Did you get any info on their clinical locations ? I believe this is your main concern regarding Truman. Also, will you do clinicals in the evening if you attend Truman? If so, you would not have to worry about rush hour traffic and being late. You should weigh your pros and cons in deciding which school to attend.
    For example, with Daley: can you handle the stress from the program, is it closer to your home/work, did their orientation impress you, etc.
    Truman: are you willing to travel that far for meetings, lab, tutoring, clinicals, are the hospitals they do clinicals further away from the school, do you mind traveling in the winter time on the el, etc...
    As far as 8 week lectures, Daley is the only CCC that utilize a non traditional method. This is why so many students dropped or failed the program, because most could not deal with retainig so much info at one time. And it is a lot of info. Did you know that when you start your nursing program you will be required to read 11-14 chapters in two days and take a quiz with 100 questions, and that is only the quiz I'm talking about.
    Most people I know that went to Daley's nursing program graduated, but stated it was tough due to so much info at once and then being tested on it.
    In the end it is your choice. You are the only one that know what you can deal with.
    Just like me, I have to choose between Olive Harvey, St. Xavier, Chicago State or Kennedy King (lpn). And most people will tell you to stay away from OH or KK. And my pro and cons have been weighed:
    St.Xavier-to expensive, but excellent program
    Chicago State- tries to make you stay in there forvever (too many classes)
    KK- LpN program, still have to go back to school
    OH- not NLNAC accreditied, but 6 minutes from home in car and classes are transferable to all universities.
    I chose OH because it is more convient, less expensive, clinical sites are not far and some of my friends were accepted. It may not be the best choice, but for now, it is the best choice for me!
    Good luck and God Bless

    I made a huge mistake... today around noon Truman called me to inform me that my seat was given to another student due to not registering for Nur. 101 during orientation which was on 6/8/09. I have no choice but to attend Daley college now. I wish I could have seen your posts a little earlier. Thanks for such excellent information. Im too late.

    Hi babygirlchas, how is the nursing program in Daley going for you? I just got accepted to Truman, but I also applied to Daley wich is very close to my house (I am in the same situation that you were a year ago) could you please tell me if I should wait for daleys response or should I just confirm with Truman? I will really appreciate your help
