    Congrats! I went to the Orientation on the 3rd. You'll get your classes set up and get an overview on the whole school and schedule and what to expect. Not too much info, but a good idea. Good luck! When are you scheduled to go in for orientation??

    Is anyone else on this board starting the evening/weekend program at Resurrection University this fall? I just decided to attend and thought I would see if anyone else is in the same boat. I am still waiting for financial aid information from them, and have two prerequisites to complete this summer, but other than that I am ready to go!

    You don't have to wait. You can log into the portal and click on academics. There's a link that says online registration or something like that. It will allow you to see the available classes/sections and register. I just did it on my own.

    I signed up for classes Monday (6pm start), Wed & Thur nite 5pm start. My employer is pretty flexible so I will start an hour earlier than usual so i can leave, go home to change and get to class on time.

    PM-me if you have other questions. Hope this helps!

    Hello Everyone,

    I am currently new to allnurses.com. I am interested in appyling to Res. University for Fall 2012. I want to apply for the evening/weekend cohort. I will have completed all but 3 of my pre-req's (when I actually apply for the program I will be enrolled in Micro and Speech) I will take my final math class over the summer of 2012. I would chance and wait for the next application period, but I would have to wait an entire year to get in for either the Summer 2013 or Fall 2013 cohorts.

    I am currently taking my pre-req's at the city colleges if chicago. I feel that the BSN program at Res. University would be a better fit for myself than the City College's ADN program. I say this because if you look at both programs within 2 years I could have a BSN with Res. University vs. an ADN with City Colleges of Chicago which will take a full 2 years. However, if I am unable to apply to Res. University while still taking pre-req's it would be pointless.

    The questions that I have is:

    Is it still possible to apply to the program while completing pre-req's during your application process?

    How competitive is the program?

    Would it even be worth trying to get in with 2 (pre-req's) in progress and 1 still left to complete over the summer?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Purple_gal2014,

    You might want to call or email the school to meet with an admissions counselor to go over your transcripts. It was very helpful for me. For instance, I was going to try to test out of the computer science course, but the admissions counselor told me that the test is extremely difficult and they have had people not be able to start the program because they failed it. That was good to know; I promptly enrolled for an online computer course when I heard that!

    I think you should definitely apply for Fall 2012. I was taking A &P II and Developmental Psych when I applied (they did want my midterm grades so that they knew I was doing well in A & P), and am taking Microbiology and Computer Science this summer. They just want to know that you are going to complete the prereqs in time. When you hear the statistics of how many people apply and how many are accepted (can't remember them exactly) it sounds as if it is super competitive. The reality is that they have a ton of requirements (I mean...computer science? really!?) so the main reason people are rejected is that they are missing too many admissions requirements.

    They do have a guaranteed admissions policy, I believe your GPA has to be 3.0 and you need an 80 on the TEAS.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks so much for the reply aarm. This really helps me out a lot. Hopefully I can get in right away to speak with an admissions counselor. My dreams of being a nurse are not far away!

    Thanks!

    Hey guys,
    I'm currently a student as RES (started in jan.) Don't worry too much about the requirements to get in. I had a not so great gpa from my first degree, but got all As on my prereqs, which I was taking up until the dec. before I started. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call admissions. They're extremely helpful, and by talking to them I found out that I didn't need to take some of the prereqs, so ask before you sign yourself up!! It'll save you time and money! They really do want to help you and make sure you get in. If you don't meet the 3.O and what ever the TEAS score is, they review your file and the board makes a decision, so don't let the requirements deter you or make you think that you can't get in, they are flexible, but they are also getting more competitive, so the earlier you get your stuff in, the earlier they can get you signed up.
    hope this helps and good luck!

    The first term is supposedly the hardest. There were a good handful of people that did not pass, so they'll be joining your class. I think the main thing is to be prepared for an accelerated program and upper level college courses. I think some people try to scare you, but its not really that bad, you just have to buckle down, so take everything w/ a grain of salt. What some people consider bad is fine for others. Basically - be a good, diligent student. There's so much support at the school, that you have a ton of resources to help you out, some better than others. You're just going to have to find out what works for you. I think I'm a pretty good student, but not stellar and I have a 3.6 and have yet to pull a real all-nighter or have a total melt down. Work hard, give yourself some good breaks, find your best stress busters and make friends! Your fellow students are the only ones that know exactly what you're going through, so lean on each other, and find ways to laugh together. Everyone gets pretty tight, pretty quick, b/c you can't do it on your own. Don't listen to gossip about teachers b/c I've gone into classes thinking it would blow, and I actually really liked the teacher, so don't waste your time - take each prof. for their best qualities, make the most of them, and learn as much as you can from them. I have yet to have a prof. who I thought didn't care about us, they are there for us and they want you to succeed, so take advantage! All of the previous negative comments about res/west sub, I have not found to be true. I'm really glad I'm there, that I'm being challenged and really feel like I'm getting a great education. I started at a different school, out of state, so I have some comparison, but my first program was really bad, so I'm really thankful for this one. One of the teachers I did like there said "you got yourself into nursing school, now get yourself out" and it's very true. It's hard, but rewarding and a great experience and it doesn't last forever, its really flying by. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. Also, just remember that this is also just my opinion....
    Have a good one!
