I was wondering if anyone here could tell me a bit about Loyola's accelerated BSN program?
How hard is it to get into the program? How challenging are the courses? Any scholarships available or financial aid? Is there a hands on experiences? How valued is the program? Any information is helpful.
I am so lost.
My original goal was to go to Truman for RN program and later transfer to UIC and do online RN to BSN program while I work as a RN nurse.
After searching the forums, I've realized that getting a job as a RN is pretty much impossible so I am considering attending full time BSN program instead.
I've already submitted application for RN program at Truman and my classes will start this fall, 2014. Loyola's ABSN program, on the other hand, starts each semester, so I could start with ABSN in spring 2015. If I decline RN program at Truman in hopes of getting into Loyola and lets say I don't get accepted into Loyola, I would waste whole year. While if I get into Loyola, it will take me same time to get BSN as it would ADN at a city college, which means I would save approximately 1 to 2 years of UIC education.
That is why I need to know how competitive and how challenging is to get into ABSN at Loyola?
Any information helps.
PS. I've completed all of the pre-reques except general chemistry and Organic Chem. I plan on taking general chemistry over the summer and organic during fall semester. My current GPA is 4.0.
