    Anyone attended this university?

    What are the teachers like?

    Im really interested in others who have completed the accelerated BSN program. Did you feel well prepared?

    I have some very good friends who have attended MidAmerica. They have nothing but praise for the school. Some things to consider:

    1. This is a private religious (Nazarene) university.
    2. Tuition is high.
    3. Students tend to be slightly younger than those in the state universities.
    4. Chapel attendance is required. (See #1 above)

    If you can live with that then this school should be no problem.
    Good luck.

    Im mostly looking at their accelerated BSN. As far as I know chapel isnt required because of the intensity but I do know the tuition is very high 350+.

    Be careful and investigate it thoroughly. We have a Nazarene university in my town and not only is chapel required but so is a "statement of evangelical faith" for you to attend. The tuition costs are high and the school employs an entire cadre of security people whose sole purpose is to drive around town looking for students breaking curfew, student vehicles near apartment buildings or bars, etc. Now, if that's your cup of tea, go for it, but if not you might want to find out if your school employs similar methods.

    Im not too worried about that if Im going for the accelerated. I doubt I'll have much time to do anything but go to school and take care of my 2 children. I know that they do require incoming freshman to sign a statement that they will not drink/smoke or gamble. The impression I got is that they consider the ABSN a little different..the spiritual classes are not required like they are in the traditional bsn...so im guessing they might be a little more lenient since the ABSN students are going to be older students..probably all over 25 and mostly 30's and 40's. Chapel was not mentioned either when I inquired about the ABSN....but maybe it is and they just didnt say.

    I'll know more when i go talk to them next month.
