I received my letter from C.O.D. yesterday. We have until March 1st to accept, so don't despair if you didn't get a letter, I expect several people won't accept because they are attending different school and then COD will send out 2nd round letters.
Based on acceptance into a Nursing program for those with a Bachelor or Master degree, individuals are basically trying to get into the first program that will accept them due to wait list, tuition, distance, evening or weekend program availability, and mandatory pre-req.'s.
At the end of all the research, everyone must make the best possible choice for him/herself and their family. Best wishes future NP.
I too have a Bachelor's Degree. I have heard great things about the program at COD and I figured I can get working and then if I'd like to go on for my Bachelor's or MSN I'll do it once I'm an RN. The cost alone helped firm up that decision for me. It's about 1/3 of the cost to get my ADN versus Bachelor's.
In answer to your question Chicagoing, I had all the required pre-reqs done except Nutrition (which I am taking right now) and my CNA licensure (which I am completing right now as well). So I had pretty much all my Pre-req's done except those two when I applied.
Congrats to everyone that got in!! I accepted my seat as well and can't wait to start. I have a BSN already in an unrelated field and was considering doing a direct entry program for a master's in nursing. But, I really think this is the way to go - cheaper tuition, closer to my home, and uh, did I mention cheaper? I still want to eventually get my NP, just not sure what specialty.
Is anyone taking the CNA class over the summer at CoD?
