Anyone currently in the BSN 18 Month track program at Roseman (USN)? Ive seen some older posts from a couple of years ago in the forum about the program and they seemed to have positive reviews. I know the ABSN track is... Read More
- 0Apr 1, '12 by Maddog245I didn't realize that my last post went through. I started writing it at the airport & quit to board. After my interview for the 18 month program, (I applied for the july ABSN & was informed of the restructuring, so I chose to have them use my app fee for thr the 18 mo. Instead) another student approached me in the hallway and basically told me to run. This student also informed me that there are no student advocates, unfair test questions, and lack of school organization.Is the 18 month program really that difficult or troublesome? I have an extensive science background & tutored nursing students in their first year of my local nursing program.Any feedback is much appreciated.

I like the 18 month program! I'm pleased with my decision on attending this school. The professors are happy to help with anything, and I feel blessed with the friends I've made since I moved to NV.
You must have interviewed last week? I hope everything went well! If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them. I'll try to check this site more often.
If you choose Roseman, I'll see you in August
- 0Feb 24, '13 by alyssag24Hey yep I was there interviewing last Wednesday! I really liked their presentation about the program. But I do have some questions. Are you really in class and/or at the school all day? How do you like the group tests? How do you feel about the block schedules? Do you really grasp everything in, let's say 2 weeks? I have more but I'll just leave you with those for now haha thanks so much!!
- 0Feb 27, '13 by EmeraldturtleHi guys I applied for next year and have my interview coming up march 19th. I did my pre reqs at unlv, but I think so far I like roseman's program better. If I could get some feedback on the 18month test type/sample questions that would be great! Are the questions as tricky as ive read they will be for the ABNS?also whats the deal with the computer fee? I already have a computer...do they really make u buy one just to go to the school? These are really my only concerns, otherwise I cant wait to finally start nursing school! Oh also have u guys heard about how any of the new grads of the 18month are doing with regard to finding work?
- 1Mar 5, '13 by Maddog245School all day: Yes, 8-3 for the most part. When we do get out early it's because we have something to work on (project, paper, or have a lot to study!). Also, you have the opportunity to utilize the skills lab after class to practice your "skills" for the video assessments.
Group tests: I love my group, so I really don't mind the group test portion of exam days. It gives you the chance to talk things through with others and oddly enough contributes to your learning and points out any weaknesses in your exam preparation.
Block schedule: Love it! One class to focus on at a time, also one book to purchase at a time. The only drawback is that you don't know if you have time off until test day. If you pass, you'll get time off; If you have to remediate, you don't have much of a break.
Understanding Material: You don't realize how much you learn in just a few weeks. Luckily, we have clinicals after certain blocks that help you practice what you've learned.
- 1Mar 5, '13 by Maddog245Sometimes the questions are "tricky", but that is because we are not used to thinking like a nurse. As for an example, I can't think of one off the top of my head! Be prepared for select all that apply questions!
Computer fee: I complained about that too! However, the laptops we got were Dell running i5. It also has a 3 year all-inclusive warranty. For instance, if you run it over or drop it off a building they will replace it as long as you can bring the parts in.
Last week we had a graduate from last year's BSN class come in and talk to us about getting a job. She emphasized setting yourself apart from the rest of the group, since everyone will graduate with a 4.0. Also, some of my classmates have had siblings at Roseman in previous years and have had little to no problem finding employment.
- 0Apr 10, '13 by intonursingingMaddog, Alyssag, and Emeraldturtle, could you all please share something about the interview process? I've got mine coming up in a week, and any pointers would help. Thanks! (I have no prior nursing experience, btw, this is the first time I am applying for a program).
