Lakeview College of nursing
- 0May 17, '10 by heathert_kcIn my research into accelerated BSN programs I found Lakeview college of nursing. I am having some difficulty navigating their website; Any one know how long their program is for those already holding a bachelor's degree?
- 0May 17, '10 by TLH1999Hi there! I will be attending Lakeview starting this fall. I agree that the website is kind of confusing. Here is a direct link to the tracks that may be completed. The only thing that a prior bachelor guarantees is that you don't have to take certain gen.ed courses. http://www.lakeviewcol.edu/ac_sugges...ulum-plans.php
If you have any other questions,please feel free to send me a message, and if I am not sure I can do some asking for you.

Good luck in your endeavor!!

Do you by any chance know what Lakeview bases "cumulative GPA" on? If I have a B.S. and subsequently many hours of classes completed at a community college, will they consider all college classes (for credit), just the classes I completed for the B.S., or only the community college classes?
- 0Jan 15, '11 by lynz06The track has changed a lot since I went thru the program with admission criteria. The person you most likely can email to talk with is Connie Young ([email protected]) or call. I know the phones have changed because they just got a new system. There is a "checklist" of classes I know provided on the website to compare the classes you need to be able to get into the program. The school offers Statistics and some Chemistry classes to help balance what you need for admission. I graduated this past May and was on Danville's campus. It was a tough ride, a lot of mountains to climb, with obstacles coming from each class. You learn to be very flexible and go with the flow because things can change in a heartbeat, such as clinicals, check-out tests on skill times, things like that...(And you may want to pull your hair out a number of times for it).. All of the instructors are great people and are always there to help you with anything, but you do have to ask... Even though I am on the boat of looking for jobs, I am still thankful for my time at Lakeview. I learned so much, because I took the initiative to use our resources, our teachers/mentors and they changed me for the better

that was useful post. thank you. I am applying to lakeview in a week or 2 and am wondering if you know much about which campus is better to apply to? I am applying for the accelerated BSN program and want to work in ICU after. I've heard many conflicting things about Lakeview and am a bit worried if it is the right decision or if I am going to have issues later getting a job.
How do you find your experience so far?
What is the true pass rate for the license exam?
Are you learning a lot? Are the facilities good?
I would appreciate any and all help and advice. Thank you so much in advance! I hope your classes are going well
- 0Feb 5, '11 by learner4180Quote from lynz06I know they state the 2.75 GPA on the school website but do you have any idea what the average student might have as GPA. I have a 4.0 now and in all the sciences/math but I went through a rough patch in my 3rd year of college due to family etc and that really sank my GPA and now my overall GPA (even though I have 4.0 since then) is 2.9. So am wondering if they put more weight on total GPA or they consider individual classes as well and anything else? Thank you in advance!Cumulative GPA is everything.
- 0Feb 26, '11 by Katie1770Hi there! I was really worried when I applied to Lakeview, I also had a rough period when I was working on my first undergraduate degree...they accepted me with a 2.8. I think a 2.5 is the minimum that they will accept, so I think you'll be fine, but I know waiting to hear back is the worst! Good luck!
