RN to BSN--Grand Canyon University--Let the fun begin Sep 30 2013 - page 220

Howdy all, I bit the bullet and after much research, I decided on Grand Canyon! Wow, I did not expect BSN schools to be like used car salesmen--hounding me by emails and phone calls. Rather... Read More

    Thanks! So I was under the impression you had to take the classes your adviser placed in the line up? What is HLT 317 are they similar? Is there someplace for me to check on line ?
    core classes: Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) | GCU

    Most need all the core courses..unless you have taken them before.....BUT even if you don't need all the core classes, you still need so many credits to get ur BSN....so they throw in what I call "anything" classes! Of course you can't just take any class, but 1 has a fair # to choose from and ur adviser should be able to let u know!'

    AMP 450...Hlt 317..are the 2 anything classes I took.....Yes u can search those classes,just google AMP 450 GCU etc etc.... but in short you can take other "anything" classes....My adviser was pretty much useless and would not tell me what the were.....I found out about AMP 450 and 317 from here and FB groups!! AMP 450 is a Leadership class..somewhat interesting and no group project!! HLT 317 was a very basic research class....most in the class were not nurses and I'm pretty sure it was the 1st university class for many as it was a very very basic research class!!

    Past GCU graduates,
    Can anyone tell me if they had JT as an instructor in 450V ? Also having trouble getting direct answers from Advisors on what particular "track" I am on, I do not want TS in the risk class and they keep assigning me her ,is she the only one who takes this class? I have only 4 classes left and I am freaking out right about now , any help would be appreciate. Thanks in advance

    308 is not a core class(I posted link above on the core classes), so you should be able to switch it for an "anything" class such as HLT 317....which is a very basic research class. As you have found out, certain classes, at certain times only have a limited # of profs teaching it.

    Hi Flames 9-RN thanks I am unable to read your PM since I don't have enough posts yet. I did look at the link and did see it myself on the school web page and emailed my advisor who was non committal she says I'm a "different track" but I can't seem to find out which track she is talking about , and she made it seem as though the professor I don't want is the only one who teaches 308 . Anyway I saw you could not post names I thought initials would be ok sorry if I messed up thanks for the help! I'm not sure what I should do now I have 2 core classes left and they put me in the 450 class this week. I still need 2 other "anything classes".

    1st thing you need to do is find out this "track" stuff....if she cant tell you, ask for a supervisors email.....In my advisors emails to me, it always included her supervisors info.....

    Some of the advisors are useless.....I had to take 2 "anything" classes, but she could not tell me what classes qualified or make any recommendations......Luckily I had read some here on allnurses and looking at the school website!!
