I have been accepted into LIU School of Nursing for the Fall 2017 program. I recently graduated with a bachelors from a school in upstate New York and was pretty much in a time crunch. I put all my eggs in one basket and only applied to LIU 24 month program. Yes I was hasty but it is what it is now. I was just wondering if anyone knows anything about the program, or has gone through the program? What advice would you give? The tuition is definitely a huge set back for me as it is my second degree (FAFSA will not be able to help me as much) and will have to take out a lot of loans. Thank you for any responses!
I was thinking about attending for Fall 2017 as well.
I recently graduated LIU's nursing program may 17'. Congrats on being accepted and beginning your journey into the nursing world. LIU, like any other nursing program in NY has its fair share of challenges. The biggest challenges i have had is with dealing with admin. On the other hand, the professors are easily accessible so don't be afraid to sit with them and review the exams and ensure that you understand the content. The program takes a lot of hard work and dedication and the passing grade for each class in a 76.46 exam average (meaning no group work or otherwise is counted into this). Every semester you will also have to do ATI exams until you graduate. Overall the program prepared me for the real world and not to mention that LiU HAS excellent nclex pass rates. No one that I know of has failed so far from my group.
