    thank you for sharing!!

    Im 27 and my gpa is around 3.5 right now...but I dont have a previous bachelor degree...so my only options are getting the rest of the 90 credits I need or getting my LPN.

    Are there many in your class that are previous LPN's or students with just 90 credits..no bachelor? Do they prefer one type of student to another..like the LPN's over the 90 credits..or the bachelor prepared students over LPN's ect?

    How many clinical hours is the program?
    Unfortunately I didn't graduate from my previous program, life & circumstances happened, so I didn't have a previous bachelor but I did have well over 90 hours credit. I think there are only 2 of us in the program, the rest have previous degrees. I'm only aware of one LPN. I honestly don't think they "prefer" a type of student but rather they focus on GPA, application essays & resumes, and maturity/ability to handle the pace of an accelerated program.

    Ok this makes me feel a lot better!

    Im extremely motivated to do this and even willing to relocate closer as im an hour away right now.

    Ive been trying to finish nursing school since I was 18..and like you life and circumstance got in the way.

    did you take the 4 hours AP classes?

    I have already taken AP but it was a 5 hour class...so now im short 1 hour of the 19 required...im taking a 5 hour micro class this semester and I've previously taken a 5 hour chem class and a 3 hour nutrition class...which is only 18 hours. I see they also list Genetics as a possible science class... I wonder if they would accept my general biology class to full fill the requirement.?

    oh i did have another question.

    Are they looking for just 90 credits in "whatever" as long as the pre reqs and GE classes are satisfied? Some of my previous credits are "fluff" classes... like a computers for health care... applied math... then I also have a CNA course...as well as the regular classes like gen bio, general psych, nutrition, ect

    I took A + P separately, chemistry, nutrition and I also had biology. I think it depends on where you took the biology class & what it covered. They will likely do a quick transcript evaluation with you on your visit if you take unofficial copies with you, that's what I did.

    I plan on taking my transcripts up for them to go over. Hopefully they take my gen bio class..it was a 5 hour class 3 for lecture 2 for lab.

    I wish I already had my 90 completed...but its not possible..so the earliest I can get in for the ABSN in 2013..which is soo far away.

    So far I havent found a reason to count this university out...everyone has been so helpful when I call/email..and past and current students have great things to say about them. Is everyone really as friendly and helpful as they seem? One other BSN program I contacted was so cold...very unfriendly and not helpful.

    Hey Ok I am new to Allnurses.com and how it works. I was wondering how is it going so far? is it broken up into eight week cycles with how many classes every 8 weeks? Where are you guys doing rotation hours at? Here is my email sariee2006@yahoo.com if you would rather be able to email me. In the message line you can just put Midamerica or something so I know its not spam. Thanks so much.
