I am looking at nursing programs
in the Lansing area and I'm contemplating getting my ADN at LCC and then doing an RN-to-BSN bridge program through MSU or UM.
Anyone here have success at getting into the LCC ADN program the first time applying? I figured I'd apply to all the programs in the area, but I'm really hoping to get into LCC due to the outstanding reputation of the program (not to mention, the excellent tuition rate)
I've gone to the pre-nursing advising seminar and I've got an appointment set for March 16th with the Nursing Advisor to go over my transcripts, since I already have an Associate in Microbiology from another school.
Just wanted to hear if anyone has had luck getting in right away. I'm going to miss this year's deadline to apply, so I won't be applying until March 2013 for the Fall 2013 program.
In the mean time, I'm going to work on courses that will apply to the BSN. I've got to re-take a few of the pre-requisites because it's been over 18 years since I went to college. My current cummulative GPA is 3.75.
Is it better to do the RN-to-BSN route? Or should I concentrate on getting directly into a BSN program? Your thoughts?
