    Hello! Quick question for USN BSN students.

    Do you have to be accepted to the University prior to applying for the Nursing program? Or is it solely a 1 step nursing application process?

    Thanks!

    Its a 1-step process. if you got accepted you're in the nursing program.

    USN is renamed Roseman University of health sciences. This school is really really tough to finish. Students are constantly scared of failing despite studying every single day. It's extremely easy to get into the program...the hard part is finishing. August class, expect about 65 students and half of the class will make it through to the end. Don't sign for long housing leases.

    I'm currently enrolled (fixing to start Block 3.0 tomorrow) and the ABSN program is every bit as intense as you may have read. While the material we've learned so far isn't particularly difficult, the pace at which it's delivered and at which we have to learn it to 90% proficiency adds a very significant challenge. I really don't do much beyond go to the gym, Sim. Lab, or study--I can see the Strip from my apt. down in Henderson but haven't thought about going down there in a month...

    Wow - I didn't realize the BSN program was having similar problems to the ABSN program.

    Doesn't it strike anyone as odd that Roseman requires only a 2.75 GPA or higher to get into the ABSN program but once you get there they require a 90% on everything? Aren't they setting people up for failure?

    Also, any thoughts on why Roseman isn't invested in keeping students (simply from a monetary perspective)?

    I think a lot of students are capable of getting better grades then they received with their first degree. I graduated with my first degree with a 2.8 GPA, and I have had no problems with the 90% because this time I am going through without partying and missing class. A 90% on everything is not too bad if the students work hard. The school is not setting us up for failure, it is giving us the oppurtunity to succeed. Try to think of the glass more as half full.

    Hi,
    Don't want to rain on your parade, but please read nitenurse702 post....if you value your time, money, education and sanity you will take that post to heart as it is true. There is a lot you don't know or understand until you are on the inside looking out. Your logic seems well intended and I thought the very same thing.... until I experienced it for myself.... Wish you the very very best in finding the right school for you. We are all working extremely hard to become the very best nurses we can be.... and help fellow students to choose the best path possible.

    Wishing you success!

    Good question...that's what we can't figure out...seems like a terrible business model no?

    Best wishes for your nursing future...
