    at shepherd u can pay by semester but they do not gaurantee u a seat in the following semester if u do not pay in full. i found out there is about 1.5 month break in between each semester. keep in mind that their nursing program has been around for 11 years now and just been approved by the brn last month. I'm not trying to defend the program but there are not that many LVN to RN programs without waits in california any more.

    @tothepointeLVN: i've heard of excelsior but never considered it because of the licensing issue in california. after reading the ad, it does soun appealing but is that legit? and with the job shortage in nursing in california, would that really be a good idea?

    who has this kinda money to pay in full???? without financial aid will be hard for students like me

    Hi I am an LVN and I am looking for honest opinions on this school whether good or bad.
    I have tried to get into community colleges for their RN program, but have not had much success.
    Between Shepherd and West Coast college, these are my last 2 resorts.
    Please help thanks.

    Since you are an LVN, you should look into WGU. www.wgu.edu Way more affordable than both of the others. Their next cohort starts in August. Check into it.

    I would try schools like National University cost is (37,000) , West Coast University is the same nu 37,000.
    But Shepherd University is a new college, no federal aid to pay tuition. Think about it ,but if i was you i would not go to that school. You're going to paying 5,000 per sem 79,000 cost.

    I went to talk to them and they said that I need to take pre-req courses in Fall which will cost me a total of 12000 and then I will be able to start the nursing courses in Spring, but that's IF I get accepted, which is according to the counselor is 50/50 chance. SO then I have to spend 12000 taking all these pre-req in addition to the old pre-req I took. I already took Anat/Phys, Micro, Chem, but now have to take Music Appreciation, Biology, Role Transition, and 3 others, a total of 6 courses and pay 12000 in hopes that MAYBE I get accepted for the actual program in Spring. Do not have a good feeling about this. Is there anyone who has been through this and got accepted for the actual nursing program or someone who got denied after doing all this work and spending all this money??????? Please let me know your opinion. THanks

    I think they want to get $12,000 from you. Music appreciation is not a prerequisite to nursing. Any other courses of a general ed variety can be taken while in nursing courses. Not necessary for admission. How do they feel about you taking music appreciation from a local cc and transferring it in, for less money spent? That is the answer to your question.

    two pre-req: Health assessment and role transition must be taken with them - just those two equal 9000, the other 4 courses (extra $3000) can be taken at local CC, but they said schedule wise better take all other there. And I dont mind spending that money if I know for sure I will continue and be accepted to the actual program. Did you go to Shepherd?

    No, I have considered Shepherd but it is at the bottom of my list based on what I have read here. There are better options out there, to include waiting on regular community college programs. They are a second tier option for those who can afford it as I see it.

    Do you know any other schools which will accept students without waiting list, besides Shepherd and West Coast Univ ?

    Western Governors University does not use a waiting list. They just did their selection for the August cohort. I believe they have another cohort starting in October. At only $4250 tuition every six months, they are an economical alternative to obtaining a BSN. www.wgu.edu
