    Hello,
    why are you so distressed? I can reccomend D'youville in Buffalo. All you need is 2.5 undergrad GPA to get into the nursing program. If not then go for UVI you get federal financial aid. UVI has their first nursing course offered online during the summer. If you get an A (or A- check their website) you are in for the program. They do have a 2 yr program. I insist they do. Being that it is NLNAC accredited you can take the NCLEX and transfer anywhere, get federal financial aid, etc. Good luck, I hope you figure out what you want soon. I am thinking of UVI if I don't get into Maria College. And if I don't do that I am off to D'youville.

    Hey Glitterkitty!!!!

    I too was hoping to go to IUON in the fall of 2009. I have 1 daughter and would have to take her with me. I love their program. I would only have 2 years becasue I have to do an extra semester for chemistry and pharmacology. I have been acceeted and everything. The BSN with 42 transfer credits is 1year and 8month. ADN 1year 4 months.
    Maybe me and u can chat about the school some more.

    Hi, I just attended an info session the other day and I am enthused about possibly attending IUON in fall 09. I applied already, just waiting for transcripts in the mail, then send it off to be evaluated, then everthing will hopefully fall in place. Do any of you have an idea of a ballpark figure of total program cost (with the 42 transferable units so hopefully a year and a half total), housing, food, etc will cost? Any suggestions are helpful! :spin:

    I'm considering the LA College option. The only thing is that I already have a Bachelor Degree and therefore will not qualify for any grants, etc (only scholarships if I can get any). Where are you all in the process? Have you been admitted for fall, interview, testing, loans, etc?

    Hi everyone! I realize that this is an older post, but it's the only post I could find on the saint kitt's nursing program. So has anyone gotten in/studying there right now?? I am interested, but also have a few questions and concerns. I would love to hear from someone who has studied there or is there now....how you like the program and the island itself.

    No matter where you get your credits, the only thing that the various State Boards look at is where you graduated from. Nursing is one of those sets of degrees where each school is protective of their own method. Now the school in St. Kitts might take a lot of transfer credits from other schools, but they might take them as "elective credit" rather than 1:1 replacement of core classes. The same might also be true of CSU. If you plan to graduate from a US school, make sure you find out exactly what they accept transfer-wise from other schools. On the other hand, if you're taking the NCLEX in NM, our laws specifically grant access to NCLEX testing from graduates of recognized international programs. You will have to prove that your education was in English, though and that the program accreditation is appropriate. Other states may or may not honor your NM license, however, if your education was not handled in the US. I don't know the law in any other state yet, because I've not tried transferring my license yet.
