Hi guys and gals. Just a lil bit of info, take it as you will. I applied to the nursing program in the spring of 2 semesters ago with a science GPA 0f 4.0 my overall GPA was a 3.85 i had all of my pre and co-requisites done with several honors classes. I got rejected from the program. Other friends of mine got in with lesser GPA's and less credits??? Anyway dont knock your chances before you get that letter. Apply and wait it out. Nassau has weird ways of picking their Nursing students and its not just (GPA(science), Residents, amount of credits) like they say.
It was a blessing in disguise, i started the nursing program at Stony Brook this semester.
For the person thinking about Med Micro in the summer. If your dedicated it's not that bad. I did Med Micro and A+P II in summer 1 and 2. and got A's.
I drive to Stony Brook 4 days a week and it sucks but getting out with a BSN ( oh yeah Stony Brook has a two year BSN if you have 57 credits specific to what they want) is soo worth it.
AAS's are getting jobs but BSN's are getting better ones and more of them. And RN's from reputable schools
are getting them before cummunity colleges. A lot of people say NCC is a great RN school, till you get out of the NCC circle then other people tell you that it really isnt.
