I'm a little bit nervous but I am ready for a roller coaster ride.
1st semester isn't to bad. It is hard only if you get behind so try to stay ahead it is time consuming so be ready for that. When school starts I won't be on here as often so if you ever have a question email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I check that several times a day. Good luck to you!
Yes I believe all nursing programs are hard to get into, but not impossible. Make good grades and you will have a good chance to get in on the first try! I believe my class who graduated in May 2014 avg gpa was 3.75 or higher. I am sure you can do it though!
I was looking for advice on if it would be better to do the LPN/ASN program at OTC and then work as a rn while getting my BSN or do my pre requisites at OTC and transfer to msu or another school for the BSN program.
You can do it any of those ways...it is what suites you best! I got all my prerequisite at Cox but you don't have too. Some of my classmates did OTC prerequisite to save money. I did the ASN program (may 2014) and took a couple of extra classes at the same time, so I could finish my BSN quickly. I graduate at Cox with my BSN in May 2015 the same time my friends that started their BSN program at cox. So I will have a year experience and my BSN in May. Was it hard? Yes! But was it worth it...yes! If you need any help please ask away!
