    I commute... I'm 23 years old so I wouldn't dorm at this point, all the students who dorm at Molloy are fresh out of HS . Molloy is expensive as it is.

    Can you please tell me about the flexibly on clinical for the generic BSN program .. I do not want to be stuck with a classes and not able to work at all.. I need to know if they have a flexible schedule ..

    They offer Saturday clinicals also for people who work during the week so you'll be fine if you don't work weekends. They offer a lot of times for classes so don't worry about the flexibility.

    mscush: They don't require TEAS or NLN for the nursing program. They require a 20 question math test that you must get at least 18 correct and a reading test.

    MsKane8: If you call admissions they will let you speak to a Nursing advisor who will tell you everything you need to know about program requirements etc...

    bringing up an old thread... but i couldn't find any info on the entrance exams....

    do all nursing students need to take both exams? i heard some people didn't... but maybe they changed the policy?

    Everyone takes them. At least that is from when I first applied in July 2011. Things may have changed since then. Everything you need to know is on their website.

    Thanks for your response! I took the Math Screening recently.. and surprisingly it was not that bad.

    I found out Molloy takes SAT scores and thankfully, I still had them from years ago... so no Nelson Denny. whoot!

    So I originally applied to the Dual Degree program... but I decided to focus on getting my BSN first and then apply elsewhere for my MSN... so I changed to traditional transfer BSN

    But now I keep thinking.... will it take longer to get my BSN at Molloy? It says that DDP students can finish in 2.5 years without pre-reqs. But I realize BSN students have to take 1 extra class (DDP combines 2 classes into 1), making it 3 years to complete. Is this true?

    For those who went for the traditional route, how long did it take?

    I'll put it to you this way: I went into as a transfer student (already have my bachelors) into the regular Undergrad program (not dual degree). Just like the dual degree students, I didn't have to take any gen ed requirements because they were already transferred over. For Dual degree students it will take 3 years. For me (regular undergraduate program) it will take 3 years ONLY because I took summer courses this summer and will be taking summer courses again next year. Dual degree students don't have to take summer courses because the courses are combined during fall & spring semesters. If I wasn't able to take summer courses it would take me 4 years instead of 3. "2.5 years without pre-reqs" is a complete lie. I was told the same thing, and when I actually sat down and went over which courses I needed to take, I realized it will take 3 years and that was with taking FULL TIME COURSES over both summers in a row! Even dual degree will take 3 years MINIMUM without pre-reqs. Don't get tricked by thinking you'll be done in 2.5 years. Molloy only lets you take very few nursing courses at once.

    Thanks so much for letting me know. Your response is extremely helpful. I was studying the sample course progression on the website and, yeah, something didn't make sense...

    Do you know their policy of traditional BSNs changing to Dual Degree once in the program? Has anyone done this in your year/cohort?
    Also - how were the summer classes? Did you take them full time? I concerned about the short time frame and heavy work load.
    How do you like the program aside from the time it takes to complete it?


    Thank you again!
