    Hi guys! my name is Anita. I got accepted into the ABSN program for Fall 2017. I'm excited to start the program and meet you all! I'd like to join the Fall 2017 Facebook page. I am also interested in finding an apartment, as well as a roommate for more affordable cost. I currently live in South Carolina and will be moving to Olathe in August before the start of the program.

    mgrantcolburn, do you have the "Essentials of Nursing Practice Package"?

    To those of you who have been accepted into the accelerated program, did you have other completed degrees maybe outside the medical field? I have a undergrad and master's degree in social work, and I am concerned about not completing some of the "required courses". Was that an obstacle for anyone else? Or did everyone have education in the medical/nursing field. Thanks!!

    Hey! There are actually a lot of people in the program right now who have no medical background; one person in our cohort was a social worker too before and she's killing it. They start you from pretty much ground zero other than expecting you to know some terminology so maybe try and get a medical terminology course but even without it you'd be fine. Are you talking about not having completed pre reqs prior to applying? I was given a conditional acceptance until I completed my pre reqs which I think was pretty common.

    My concern is that all my previous classes will not plug in where needed. I really am hopeful to complete the degree in a year due to our home being a two income home....if I were to quit my job and focus on school.

    Totally understandable! If you contact the school they have awesome counselors for the professional programs that can help you out and get your transcripts evaluated. Hope that helps!
