    I just started this Program on June 27th. I was suppose to start in April but the admissions office didn't forward my transcripts to the nursing office in time, so I had to wait til June. So I would recommend if anyone is applying, apply at least 2 weeks in advance because your transcripts go through the admissions first, then the nursing office.
    So far the program seems okay, my only disappointment is I have to take this computer class they have added to the program and I already took it because it was apart of the pre-req before. Added months and cost, so disappointing. But that's alright, I am determined to get through it.

    Anyone in the program already, can you tell me if you HAVE to have all the books listed? Which ones can I possibly go without?

    Hey Congrats!!!, I start in September I to have had a computer course as well that they should have accpeted. So I am not happy about that either 3extra months and $$$. Hey the book list that is on the site is that all the books that is needed for the entire 15mos.

    I didn't buy the computer book because it's really not a class I care about. But I believe that's all the books needed on the website. They have pdf files of the chapters as well on the site too so I think I will be okay with no book for this computer class. Not sure about the rest.

    Hi guys! I'm new to this so bare with me... For those that will start in September for the bridge program, did any of you have more than a yr. Experience working as an lvn? Because I heard that they recently add that on to their admission requirements and unfortunately I'm a new graduate nurse that would like to further in my education and was hoping to get into their program soon.

    Thanks.... And congratulations in starting in September. Hopefully they'll let me join your class and make exceptions. How long was it til' you've received an acceptance letter from them?

    You do have to all required courses before they let you take tranisition courses. If you have everything get started now, because it takes a while for them to process everything.
