BSN program at Olivet

  1. 0
    Hi!!! I was just wondering about the BSN program at Olivet!!! In my situation, I have completed all of my general Ed's and science course work including General Chemistry!!! Olivet was recently at my school Prairie State College, where as they were recruiting more students to attend their school. They advisor that was representing the school made me feel extra warm with attending their program instead of PSC!!! In order for me to apply at Olivet, I need to take a medical terminology class.

    Soooo, I'm currently a CNA (not a nurse)!!! Most of the nurses that I been coming accross has been telling me to get my associates first before I consider along with my BSN!!!

    I know that it is in my heart to be a nurse, but I am still confused about which degree I should grasp onto first.... HELP

    Hi HighPursuit23, wow that seems like a easy way to get into a BSN program compared to Governor's State. I too have been given the run around about whether or not to go straight for the BSN. I am currently attending PSC and will be applying to the Nursing program in the future. From what I have been told you have to be a nurse before you can apply to a BSN I'm not sure how true that is but two counselors have told me this a two different schools. If you find out any more information on the BSN please share I would love to go straight to a BSN program. Good luck on your nursing journey.

    Hi, how are you doing Khalilahmr!!! Yes it is possible for you to get your BSN first!!! I am too a student at PSC!!! After taking the recommended courses for entrance into a BSN program, I will be starting an excellent program this Fall!!! Sometimes you have to do your own research about different Nursing schools!!! I figure if all nursing programs are hard and rigorus, I may as well attend a University rather than a community college!! I also heard a rumor about hospitals not hiring associate degree nurses off back, so leave your options open!!! Good luck!!!

    Olivet's program is really expensive & everyone that attends it has to take out private student loans b/c the amount they charge is over what federal student loans allow per semester.

    I am fortunate to be one of the luckiest students to have financial aid, scholarship funds, and extra grant money, so the loans that I might have to take out for the rest of my expenses is not much as a average car! Not bad compared to moat colleges, but keep in mind your gen eds need to be completed before applying! Hey it's a BSN private University and they arw nationally accredited!

    Your resume means a lot and says a lot about you, sometimes you have to pay for a quality education! The staff is caring and loving and very much so Christian like! I fell in love with this school and will get my BSN from Olivet : Good luck Suey!
