Creighton 2011 - page 3
Hey everyone!! I didn't see any forums for those of us hoping to go to Creighton in 2011, either in Jan or Aug. So, how's everyone's process going? I just applied almost 3 weeks ago and am hoping for Jan admission. I e-mail the... Read More
- 0Hi! I will be starting the Accelerated program in January, and I am still in search for an apartment. So far, I haven't heard back from anyone in my class about living near or with each other! I am from Wisconsin and have never been to Omaha, so this has been tricky trying to figure things out! Would you recommend living downtown close to Creighton? There are a few high rises that I am considering in case I have to live on my own. I am not sure I want to drive to school every day. But, if I lived near other nursing students I probably would!
Do you have any recommendations on preparing for the program?

Welcome to Omaha a little early! Have you thought about living on campus or is their housing not available? There are a lot of apartments that would be pretty close to the campus. It is hard to choose a place long-distance. Have you thought about coming a few days early and looking for a place? There are some long-term type hotels that charge $200/week (I think it is called Value Place) if you could afford to do that while you look. They are not in the Crieghton area but that is not a problem in Omaha - traffic is not a big deal.You can get anywhere in 20-30 minutes or less. (This also means you don't HAVE to leave really close if you don't mind driving although I think parking on campus can be a problem.) Also, you could ask the school if they have any recommendations for apartments.
I would try to get your housing settled before the program starts because the first few weeks are stressful enough. If you would like, PM me - I would be glad to talk to you on the phone if you like. I have lived in Omaha for many years and think it is a great place to live (it has been in several lists of top cities for various things lately).

I live in Harrison Hills in La Vista and love it. Its quiet and I never worry about crime or not feeling safe. It's about 20-25 min from campus, but that didn't bother me, coming from California and being used to hour commutes to school. I'm finishing the program in 4 weeks!! Can't wait! let me know if you have any questions about the program or Omaha!
- 0May 30, '12 by meridith231Hi! Im starting August 2012 for the ABSN program, I am from Seattle and have never been to Omaha. I am still in search for an apartment. What is the best way to go about looking for a roommate? Is there a way to contact everyone is the class to see where people are living/ if anyone needs a roommate?
