    Hi everyone. I have also been accepted to start fall 2016. And I have join the Facebook group but there is only one member. It will be nice if more people join the Facebook group so that we can all share information that we need. I will be coming from out of state and will be interested in finding and apartment and also roommates to reduce cost. If anyone is interested, we can start looking towards that.

    Searched for the group and came up with nada. Found several groups for the past and now current students but nothing for "MNU ABSN 2016-2017".

    Sorry guys but allnurses isn't letting me post the link to the group on this thread. I'll try making the group public and see if that helps.

    Hi all! I'm getting ready to apply for the fall '17 cohort, is the program as awesome as it looks?? I've been looking into ABSN programs all over the country and I keep coming back to MNU looking like my top choice. Does anyone have any advice for the admissions process?

    Hi all, I just applied for the Fall 2017 program. I'm super nervous, but hopeful! Can anyone provide any info on the course load? Was anyone able to work while doing the program? And how many months are actually spent doing clinical work as opposed to classroom work? Good luck to everyone!

    Hi mimoore09,
    I graduated from the program in August of last year and thought I'd chime in. I'm sure the current cohort is super busy right now - been there, accomplished that In the beginning it's basically class Mon-Fri 8-4 or so. As the modules continue it becomes about half and half between class time and clinical time until it's more clinical time and less in class time. We did have some people that worked through the program, although I was not one of them (occasional babysitting but nothing more and when I felt I could fit it in.) They were troopers let me tell you and they worked because they had no other choice. I think a lot of us are shocked at what we can do when we HAVE to do it, but overall I would not recommend it. Everything's split into Modules. Mod 1 is just classroom and after that every mod has some sort of clinical aspect (we had lab in mod 1 but I don't consider that to be "clinical" at all.) If you have any questions about the program, I'm happy to answer. I was always looking for answers when thinking/applying so I understand! Good luck!

    Anmllover25 Hi! I just sent in my application, do you remember how long it took to find out when you were accepted? Also, are you glad you did a 12 month program or do you feel you would have been better prepared doing a longer one? Thank you so much for the info!

    It took five weeks from when I turned it in to when I got the call that I was accepted. I am SO HAPPY I did the 12 month program. About 2 months before graduation I was like "I'm ready to take the NCLEX." I just felt really prepared. I NEVER did extra studying, I felt like you were so immersed in the program that I saw no reason to do Kaplan, do extra NCLEX questions, etc. I took the NCLEX the day before graduation. In and out in 1.5 hours and I had 75 questions - PASSED! To be honest looking back I feel like I would've gotten annoyed with a regular, 2+ year program (that's just me, though.) It would be different if I came out unprepared, but that was just not possible with this program. Let me know if you have any more questions. I'm so happy I got into MidAmerica's ABSN program, it's one of the best things thats happened to me on my "becoming a nurse" journey. Good luck, I hope you hear some great news in about a month!
