I'm about to finish my ADN this Dec, and I am planning on completing my BSN ASAP. I just found out I was accepted into cal-state dominguez hills' RN-BSN program. I'm currently trying to decide if I should attend this school or ohio university. Anyone have experience with CSUDH?
The reason CSUDH appeals to me is because it's a semi-local school, it's affordable, and you can take pathophysiology and biochem online as an elective. The more science courses I can receive an A in, the better (CRNA is my ultimate goal).
Anyone have experience with this program? How difficult is it? How many units were you able to handle each semester? I've heard of people taking as many as 23 units in one semester while working full time. I figure if I take 12 units each semester, I can finish in 3 semesters, and focus on earning A's instead of half-a**ing my way through courses.
I'm supposed to start in fall 2012 but i just found out that i can actually start taking few classes as early as spring. I wanted to start right away, at least one or two classes, But it is too late to apply for financial aid. If i take a class this spring it will cost me 750$ a class out of pocket. I cant afford it right now. So i told them i might just wait till fall cause i wont be able to apply for financial aid till Jan 1st. The program at CSU DH is about 50 units. I dont think i can finish that in 3 semesters unless i take some classes during the summer. My plan is to finish it in 4 semesters.
I emailed the bsn coordinator with my plan each semester like the classes im gonna take to complete it in 4 semesters. She told me that its a heavy load and i should just take two classes first. If thats the case i wont be finish in 3 years. ugh
CSU DH website is frustrating. It doesnt really give information. The bsn coordinator i'm emailing with doesnt give detailed answers too. Ill ask them a really long question and she will reply with one sentence answer.. wtheck.
