I have asked about SMSU's program, but no response. Are there any nurses who live in the Ozark area who could recommend an academic RN program or hospital in the area? I love this area of Missouri and want to relocate. I have... Read More

I don't know a whole lot about SBU but when I was checking out nursing schools, I didn't get a run around at Cox. I started summer of "04" and got accepted into the nursing program starting this fall. I called SMSU once and they told me the lowest GPA they let in was a 3.8. Not sure but i've been happy at Cox. Good Luck!!
- 0Dec 29, '05 by dgcloughI'm starting the St. Johns/SBU program on Jan 3rd and their nursing classes are $300/hr. Last I heard, Cox's program was $450/hr, which is why I decided not to attend there. The support classes (ana/phy/micro/eng etc) are at a much lower price. They also accept students 2 times a year, which Cox also does, but SMSU only does 1 time a year (I think...). St. Johns offers ASN then a RN to BSN bridge while Cox and SMSU both offer ASN or BSN programs, Cox also has an accelerated BSN program if you have a previous Bachelors degree that you can get your BSN in 16 months (or 14 months...?) but it's pretty intensive...from what I hear...
Whatever you decide, ENJOY!
- 0Apr 23, '06 by bell47I just enrolled in summer classes at St. John's/SBU. I hope to get into the ASN program in spring '07. I went to visit Cox before I chose ST.J. but I just got a better feeling at St.John's. It just seemed a little more organized and friendly. I plan on going through to my BSN, after ASN.
