    I'm curious.. did anyone take the intro to nursing course (NUR2310 I think) in the fall to get a head start? I won't be applying until fall of 2013 and was wondering if I should take the class that fall.

    While I'm at it, what do you guys think about my chances of getting in? I haven't officially graduated yet but my major will be Business Admin from WSSU. I have a 3.5-3.6 GPA - It would be much higher but I transferred from Forsyth Tech and they don't count those classes while calculating GPA. I have taken two pre reqs and I am in two right now. I got a B in both Chemistry and Developmental Psych. I am in A&PI and should get an A, and Stats where I will probably get a very high B (unfortunately my teacher doesn't round up). I am planning on making a A in both A&PII and Micro, so that will leave me with 3 A's and 3 B's presumably. What do you guys think about my chances? From reading past post it seems like the way they accept students is very random, but I'm still wondering what you guys think. Thanks everybody.

    I just sent a request to be added to the group. Question though, did anyone just receive the email talking about a December 1st transfer and second-degree student orientation? I didn't even receive a phone call or email letting me know I could RSVP to this. I am so excited for this program but feel like I have been in the dark on so much information that I need. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    bz:

    I would re-take classes until you have A's in your pre-requisites. Having a B in accounting would be much less concerning to the admissions committee in my opinion than B's in pre-requisites.
    In addition to the pre-requisites I have taken nutrition, several psychology courses, environmental health (Molecular ID of Pathogens and Medical Entomology), Pathophysiology, and independent research. I also took Organic Chemistry at the 200 level rather than the Intro type organic chemistry. I tried to take, but wouldn't work scheduling wise, biochemistry, immunology, and epidemiology.

    Good luck with your application!!!!

    Hello, I am currently looking into applying to WSSU for the ABSN program. I am a Nevada resident, does anyone know the tuition cost for in state versus out of state tuition? I called and the lady in the student accounts office said she didn't have the exact fees for last year, and this years aren't posted yet.

    @ shytown it looks like tuition is around $14,300 for out of state students (http://www.wssu.edu/admissions/finan...cresidents.pdf)

    I have a question for any current ABSN students. For clinicals, do you need a car for transportation? Are all of the clinicals done at one hospital? If not, are the hospitals in the city?

    Thanks

    I'm a current ABSN student. I know at least one student who doesn't have a car. I think it would probably be workable -- clinicals are generally at Baptist or Forsyth, which are both in town. However, the sites used in community nursing can be all over (and out of) town. That might be harder, but your classmates would likely be pretty helpful.
