Not sure, but I'll be taking 12 credits this Summer along with the rest of my DE program classmates. I'm just starting this Summer so I'm not sure of the success rate, though I think it's pretty high. We're taking patho and health assessment during 1st Summer session and normal/therapeutic nutrition and foundation of nursing (with clinical) during the 2nd Summer session. I'm thinking it is most certainly doable if you devote your entire Summer to class and studying. Doesn't sound like fun at all, but...
Geez Karl, do you think it was the "you're hot" part or the "do you do prostate exams" part?
The money goes to the school and if there is any left over they will refund it to you in the form of a "refund check." Your school should give you a financial aid award letter telling you how much you will receive in student loans, not just how much you are eligible for. They usually give you part of the award one semester and the other half the second semester. If you haven't used your total annual loan limit at that point, the rest can be awarded for Summer School. You have a max loan amount for the school year (2012-2013 Fall-Summer) If 12,500 is your total for the year, they will prob break it up and disperse some each semester. I would check with the Fin aid dept. at your institution. They should be able to tell you how much you will get each semester. Once again, if there is any money left over after tuition and fees are paid, they will refund the difference to you.
I took the Mon-Wed option right after lecture. I don't live on campus and preferred to just make the days I had to be there a little longer as opposed to adding another long day to the mix. I wonder how insane this is going to feel...
Just registered for Summer classes...
I feel like I won't even be ready to start when the time comes with all the layers being unveiled bit by bit (small exaggeration). On another note, it's starting to feel like Spring is on the horizon here...
I can't wait until my "information packet" comes. I'm wondering if there is registration information in there.
I took A and P 1 last summer and actually enjoyed the class and the accelerated format. It was a little tough the first exam and lab practical, but after getting the hang ofthe flow of class, things went smoothly. I didn't work however, but had a 5 year old son and was preggo at the time...
March 16th for me as well.
Maybe since I was just accepted I will get my packet later.
Does anyone know if financial aid (stafford loans) for 2011-2012 school year covers the first Summer session...or is it considered 2012-2013? I e-mailed fin. aid but didn't get an answer to my actual question.
Thanks! Also, we take 9 of those credits during the pre-MSN phase so we'll actually have 33 credits left to take. I wonder if that 3-4 years was total including the pre-MSN phase.
I'm trying to figure out how it can take four years to do the MSN (according to the e-mail wpolorocker received. Mine didn't mention this). Most of the programs are 42 credits. Part time is what, 6 credits a semester? If one is taking three credits in the summer, then at most this would be three years. I hear from the school that some students DO go full time and work part time...so this would make the MSN portion an additional two years. Am I reading into this wrong?
Check on housing, no check on basically anything else! lol
