I'm on the same boat as both of you. Concordia sounds like a good option. I can't believe more Lvns haven't applied. A few years ago Azusa pacific told me the same thing about their lvn to bsn program. Did they say when they will be accepting applications?
Yes, I agree. Ready when you are. I will call Concordia tomorrow and ask. I will update you guys once I get more info. Hopefully, I will get some good info.
Graduated Kaplan Sept 2015 and got my license first try....way better then waiting list!!!! Agreed!!!
I want to also go this option as well and I have not had any luck. But I wanted to ask you which private schools are available because I sure would like to know. Just want to get it over with. Hope you don't mind sharing because I would really appreciate it.
What are the clinical times? 7am, 3pm, etc. thanks. Can they be on the weekends?
Thanks for that info, tsm007. I am super nervous about the clinical portion as I already work mon-Friday from 830-530. How hard was it for you to get in the clinical portion? What kind of grades did you get in the first 6 months? I hope you don't mind me asking but I just can't help it. I've been waiting for someone like you to post. Lol.
I am too. I'm kind of nervous as well because I hear that they only accept 14 students each cohort. I am so ready to just get in there and get this over with. I have to take micro and humanities but I am thinking about Clep'ing humanities.
What made me go to WGU is I have a large family. There is no way I could make a traditional program work. I wanted to be a nurse forever and I knew I could make this work because I could do most of my classwork from home. There were no part time, evening, or weekend options that I could find and this was a good fit for my learning style.
I am also going for the October 2015 Cedars cohort. I still have 2 more classes that I am currently taking thru straighterline. Let's keep in touch with each other.
I am in Baldwin hills, not too far from you. I have taken online classes before so it's ok. I also work and I am a mom, that's why I am choosing WGU. I'm willing to do what it takes but I am really desperate to finish my RN. Any help I welcome. Thanks
Thanks ShondaJ, for all the info. I wanted to ask you a question about straighter line and wgn. I have most of my prereqs but I need micro and physio. I want to take them at straighterline and I wanted to ask your opinion on that. Also, did your counselor tell you about them only accepting 15 in the program?
Do you plan on relocating? I'm asking because you will not be able to take the NCLEX in California if you go that school. Not trying to deter you from going just wondering. I am also in CA and if the program has to be accredited with state board in order to obtain license here.
The thing is with CNI is that they are not accredited with the WASC (regional accredidation). so if you wanted to go from ADN to BSN your options will be severely limited.. and considering that most places now a days are prefering BSN grads over ADN grads youll have a heck of a time getting a job.
They are just trying to get into the game of cashing out on desperate peopel who want to become RN's
I am going to WCU, mainly because my GPA isnt high enough to go into other programs and WCU is WASC accredited.. and ill be getting my BSN
California is very strict when it comes to licensing and money hungry, as well. They will make uo any excuse as to why you will need to retake things because it is not at standard. What goes on in other states, do not go on in California. Like the Excelsior program does not exist out here because the BON does not accept it. Just do your homework before going to out of state schools if you are planning to come back to California. There are a lot of people being denied ability to take the NCLEX because the out of state program does not meet the requirements of California State Programs.
Now, what you can do is go to their program and take boards there as well then endorse. Again, do your homework, call the board, then determine for yourself. Hope this helps.
Well, I hate to give you this info but they are not BON certified, which means when you try to take the NCLEX you will not be allowed to because this school has not received their stamp of approval. I was interested as well, but then I saw that they are not accredited. Thats only if you decide to pursue nursing in California. If you relocate you are all good.
