Just accepted into Barry University's traditional BSN program!

  1. 1
    Hello All!

    Let me first just say, this is my first post, and if someone posted something like this previously, please forgive me . I recently just completed my my A.A.S. degree in medical assisting. I was taking all my pre-requisites while studying to be a M.A. at the same time. I was a non-traditional student, and earned my GED through college credits through my institution (Monroe College Bronx,NY). I worked extremely hard to maintain a great GPA, and can proudly say I will be graduating with Summa Cum Laude!

    When my journey at Monroe College was coming to an end, I decided I wanted to fulfill my original dreams, and go away to college for nursing, like I've been aspiring to do ever since my Dad was being treated then passed away from leukemia. Colombia University's nurses were amazing there, and helped me find my true passion in life! Healthcare!

    So I guess this was kind of a introductory post as well. LOL.
    However, I wanted to know if any of you have attended Barry's BSN program?
    Anyone from out of state preferably? Only because I would be re-locating,
    and dorming down there. However, anyone who has attended your response is still very much appreciated. As for financial aid, I am deemed independent by the govt. (I'm 24) due to absenteeism of my mother. I would like to know if they assist with finances for expenses while looking for a job?

    Last question I promise! LOL.
    Did you have to take the TEAS or entrance exam? I already have 69 credits.

    Thanks!

    -Andre, C.M.A

    I'm also finishing up my pre-reqs and planning to attend Barry for the traditional program. The last time I talked to an advisor was around February in where she just told me to keep sending her my updated transcripts in order to put me in the system.

    Hey are you going to take Biomedical Ethics at Barry? Kind of confused about this class because I saw it on the website as a pre-req and also in the program.

    I'm going to take it at Barry. They told me that class your allow to take it when your in the nursing program because some school don't offer it. I believe that class should be taken during the first or second semester.

    No you don't have to take the teas. I can't say much of the school since it would be my 1st time attending Barry. Good luck.

    Hi everybody

    I got accepted at Barry I'm going to star this fall 2013. Last Friday teresa navarro told me that we all need to present the (EAT) English assessment test which includes math and English. I'm looking for books that help me to get prepare for it, but I can't find any. Let me know if someone have an idea if there is a good book or guide that I can use. Thank you

    No dream this is before you star the program.
    She said that the sooner the better because of you don't score enough to pass the test you can take some remedial classes online,
    That's why I want to study for the test.
