Towson Nursing Program - page 3

Hey everyone, I wanted to start a thread because as I search I couldn't find anything that was really on the route of what I was looking for. Is there anyone that has applied to Towson University... Read More

    mlshulman711 - If I were you, I would look into community colleges that offer College Algebra over the 1 month long winter session. (CCBC, AACC, etc.)

    So I decided to go to UMD's nursing program. I am sad that I won't be seeing all of you this spring, but I hope those of you on the waitlist hear back soon. I'm pulling for you!

    bmorerachel- I ended up finding one at CCBC which ends in time if I was pulled from the waitlist.
    dlo2005- congrats on getting accepted to UMD! And thank you for opening up a spot on the waitlist! I called Brooke a few weeks ago to find out how it works. She said that after fall grades are finished, they will put the waitlisted in order of their gpa. Typically about 15-20 get pulled each year. So far I have A's in the last two pre-reqs I'm working on, so I am hoping that it's possible for me to get pulled off. I did get accepted to CCBC, but have decided to pass so I can get a BSN instead.

    Congratulations, I also have been accepted to UMD! May I ask what pushed you to ultimately choose UMD over Towson's program?

    Congrats! I chose UMD over Towson for a variety of reasons: location, the fact that I already have a B.S. from University of Maryland so I am comfortable/familiar with the school system, and optimally I'd like to get a nursing specialty M.S. at UMD. Expanding upon that last reason, if you work at the University of Maryland Medical Center as a nurse, you are eligable for up to $10,000 a year in tuition to Maryland's graudate nursing programs. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think I saw in another thread that you were a pre-med student. If this is the case, you might want to look at how closely UMD's school of nursing and school of medicine work together. There is a possibility that you could make some good contacts at UMD's med. school during your BSN program. As a cautionary note, the nursing curriculum doesn't provide all the necessary classes for medical school pre-reqs. If you already have the non-nursing major organic chems, biochem, etc. under your belt, this shouldn't be a problem.

    @dlo2005 - Thanks! I'm really excited to start.

    You are correct - I did say that I was pre-med! I should have said that I know I would like to continue my education after I get my BSN, but I am not sure what route I will take yet. There are many options and I'm not sure if I am ready to dedicate so much of my life to learning about medicine via medical school, though it is appealing to think about learning about the body, medicine, etc so in depth.

    I didn't realize that Maryland potentially gives 10k to students just for working at their hospital, but that's one great incentive... I am fortunate enough to have taken classes that I ended up not needing for nursing school, so I only have a couple med school pre-requisites left if I decide to go.

    I ended up deciding to go to umb as well. That's a great point you made about making contacts with UMB's medical school if the programs work together in any way. I doubt that they do though, since nursing takes such a wholistic approad to nursing. I will definitely look into it though. Thanks so much!

    Hi, did you get accepted into CCBC Essex or Catonsville? That opens a spot for the wait listed students. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LuckyME4 - I had been accepted to Catonsville, and called them right away to turn down the spot. I'm am really hoping someone did the same at Towson, for me! Good luck.
