Anyone attending Adelphi University???

  1. Hi,

    Currently, I am a nursing student at BMCC, and I'm interested in Adelphi's nursing program. But I would like to know about some of the Liberal Art pre-reqs needed to fulfill the BSN requirements. Especially for courses such as ART, MUSIC, and HISTORY!!! I've looked at the website but I'm not sure of which of those courses are transferrable. I don't want to take at course at my school if it's not going to be carried over in the future.

    I appreciate it. Thanks!!!:angel2:

    Hi I'm currently attending Adelphi. When I transfer from my previous univ, they took my music and art class. But make sure again with them coz they like to change the policy everytime, due to increased nursing population. Also make sure to finish all of your prerequisite courses so you can be A.S.A.P student, which mean you can take summer classes and graduate soon.
    GOOD LUCK:angel2:

    Thanks for responding. Did you transfer in a music or art history courses. Or, a class like drawing/painting/sculture, or a special music course, for example, African American Music, Music in World Culture. I am very grateful for your response. Have a Happy New Year 2006.:hatparty:

    I called up Adelphi's Nursing office and the person who I spoke to told me that their accelerated program was a little over 15 months. I see on a few posts her that the accelerated program at Adelphi is about 2 and a half years. What is the real length of Adelphi's accelerated program?!?!?! Somebody fill me with the right answer. THANK YOU!!!

    hi de coah66,
    this is concerning the teacher's evaluation within the adelphi tranfer application. i just found out about their nursing program and the deadline is march 1. what if i am unable to get the evaluations, will that affect my chances of getting in the nursing program?

    There are no pre-req's required in order to get accepted into Adelphi's nursing program. If you choose to take them early, you can't go wrong by taking Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2, microbiology, nutrition, and general chemistry 1 & 2. Just note: If you don't complete general chemistry 1 & 2 by the time you are accepted, Adelphi requires that you take Chemistry 109 (general, organic, and biochemistry), which is a much tougher course than the general one (even if you completed just one general chemistry sequence). It's one of their most recent policies. Apply in multiple places just in case; I know some people with high gpa's who got rejected. You can complete the pre-req's once you're accepted in. However, all applicants need to take a N.E.T. exam (nursing entrance exam) offered by Adelphi; you then need a passing score on this as well as a good GPA from h.s. or your previous college. Then submit all your transcripts, type a personal essay, and maybe have a recommendation or 2. Check their web site for more info. and look under "Admissions." You should also go to "Academics" and click on "nursing." It'll give you a lot more detailed information. Speaking from experience, it's one of the toughest programs on campus, and everyone on campus respects the nursing students (b/c we study so darn much). It's also very hard to hold any outside jobs. I would try out a few classes first before committing to any jobs if you're able to. Also, it's getting harder to get accepted into any nursing program nowadays b/c enrollment has dramatically increased in recent years.
