Is there anyone who has any advice on getting into either a BSN or Associate RN program. I would love to go to KU and intend on applying in July for Fall of 2011. From my research I have not heard or seen the best things regarding KCKCC nursing program. I checked out the Board Of Nursing State of Kansas web site where they post the passing rate for every RN/BSN program in the state from 2004-2009 and they had the worst passing rate in the state practically! Doing pre-reqs there is fine though. I have a 3.5 and I have almost all my pre-reqs done which means Iam also about to receive my AS degree. Like I said above I would like to go to KU. I have been a CNA for 10 years this year. I started that when I was in HS at 16. I have not worked as a CNA in the last couple years but I have 8 years working experience in Elderly Care, ICU, Med Surg, OB, Rehabilitation, Adult Psychiatric, I have even worked at KU via my staffing agency in there Asthma & Allergy Clinic, Neurology Clinic and Anesthesiology Pain Clinic. I do NOT have any volunteer experience but I believe I have proven committed to Nursing, Ive never even taken a college class that did not have to do with the nursing major. After reading how hard it is to get in everywhere Im nervous I wont even be able to get into an associate program any where unless I move or something. Does anyone have any advice?
