    i checked gcu's website info today and it looks like they charge 645.00 per credit hour for traditional undergraduate (when taking 1-11 credits)... but i'm sure there will be extra fees when registering.

    has anyone already taken nur207 (therapeutic and professional communication) at gcu?
    it's one of their pre-req's and the school says there isn't any other class offered at other schools that would be an equivalent.

    thanks

    Hey I am currently in the nursing program at GCU. I believe that GCU is the only college to offer therapeutic communication. I was the last cohort to have it during the acctual program. My best friend starts in Sep and took therapeutic communication online through GCU. I hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask..

    lovensoccer3,

    Here's my next question for you and your other classmates about NUR207... If I took the class online, how difficult do you feel it would be with the following:demanding full time job, family (including kids) & two other online classes during the same semester?

    I don't want to take on too much at one time - - which tends to me my mantra.


    A little insight on the class would be greatly appreciated!

    I am not sure how it is online, because i took it in the classroom setting as it was part of my level one classes. It is a writing intensive couse. I was able to keep up with that class along with my two other classes along with working full time. I am in the fast tract program.. So it is all about time management. I will have to ask my best friend how it was online

    Hi all,
    Firs let me commend you on begining your journey through the nursing program. I am a ADN graduate of GCC 20 yrs ago it was a wonderfull program. Over the last several years since 2004 I have obtianed my BSN and MSN as well as a busssiness degree through GCU I also teach as adjunct faculty in the RN-B program. The curiculm is wonderful. The instructors are there for you, understanding and always willing to assist. I strongly encourage you to obtian your nursing degree through GCU the price may be a bit higher but it is well worth the experience you will have.
    Best of luck
    I wanted to try GCU, however, they didn't care for the ADN program from which I graduated. Unfortunately, my scholl was only regionally accredited, not nationally. So, in spite of graduating 15 years ago with many years of successful practice, AND, having the government pay for it, I still wasn't acceptable. Oh well.

    thanks for sharing the information. how much is tuition? i searched their site and could not find it. i remember it being around $500-$600 per credit hour? do they have a few starts and a traditional program also? i am amazed at the no wait. are you going to pursue a start date with them and if you don't mind sharing when you would be starting. i appreciate you sharing the information even if it is a link to information on their website.
    i wish i was ready to apply! i still have prereqs to do. the tuition is on thier website. i just cant remember where to click to find it. your best bet is to schedule an appointment with advising. they will answer all of your questions and will not harass you after your appointment. good luck

    I would tend to agree with you. I just finished #10 of 15 classes and the instructors are the best part of the program...as well as practical content that I feel I am definitely applying to clinical practice along the way.
