I just started looking into Deaconess and am waiting for my info to come for the ASN distance prigram. Actually, I think I will do the LPN course and then take the ADN here at the local college. The wait list for ADN here is 2007 for the first opening! But, you can get right in if you're an LPN. It's nuts.
I'm wondering a few things:
Do we have to arrange our own clinical sites? If so, can we go to any hospital/clinic that will take us? Has anyone had trouble finding a site?
Also, how often are we required to go to MO to the school? I live in WI, and need to find out if I can go to Deaconess and still get licensed in WI. It's a long way to MO, but I can manage if it isn't too often.
The cost is also an issue. But, it will save on having to drive 160 miles a day to the next nearest nursing school, and I can keep my job while I do clinicals, so it's worth it. How far are you all into the program and how do you like it so far?
Thanks for the info
Aspiring OB nurse!
