    I come from a family of 12 and we moved around quite a bit. Lived in Costa Mesa in the 1960's Niagara Falls NY in Jourin High and HS and Wichita Ks Nursing School and COlorado for a few years during my youth as well as in Orang County in the 1980's until 1988 moved for what I think will bethe last time to Colorado Springs CO .
    I miss the ocean and beahes of Southern Cal Sand Diego etc.
    Wife and I moved to Co to be closer to family and felt one family income was importnat enough while raising family so moved to COl Springs.
    I too whent to 12 yrs of catholic schools and by the wya HS was all boys too with the all girls school down the street.
    Got to admit I was some what inep in the social skills back then and I guess I made up for lost tie going to nursing school.
    Learned many valuable lessons there..fell in love for the first time and well I guess I was a late bloomer.
    Good luck with your studies and what direction you take a in your academics.
    With over 24 years now as a nurse I am building businesses and working toward finding pipelines of revenue so my dependents on an employeer is lessoned and eventually ellimiated.
    I wish you all the best and if I was to say anything follow your passions and you will do fine.
    Regis University is one of the best Universities in the US.
    Life will teach you much much more if you never stop learning but Regis will give you a great start.

    Michelle,

    I've heard good things about Regis. I graduated from UNC in Greeley with my BSN, am going back to Regis this summer for MSN. Many of my co workers and students that we have had on the unit are from Regis. I think it'd be a good choice.

    Good luck and welcome to Colorado!

    Michelle,
    Regis has a pretty good reputation as nursing schools go. I guess you need to ask yourself questions regarding money, convenience, time, living arrangements, etc. I took a A&P class at Regis. It was a fine experience...good teacher, great classmates, lots of money though! I got a very strange attitude from a professor, however, in that I wasn't completely assured admission (into their PT program...not nursing) unless I had received my B.A. from Regis (basically, had I given them money before). That's what turned me away from the school.
    I am currently in a nursing graduate degree program at UCHSC (University of CO Health Sciences Center) and I have to say I'm glad I'm here. I've also heard some really good things about local community college programs as well. Do a little searching and if at all possible try and talk to a couple of students at different schools as well as professors or faculty advisors. Just some insights!

    Good luck!

    I am also a graduate of Regis, class of 1999. Total tuition cost were around 22,000.00 with my final semester paid for by grants. I would say that my education was excellent, but keep in mind education is only as good as your commitment. Would not suggest a ADN degree if you plan on obtaining an advanced degree in nursing. You would only end up spending more money and time to get your BSN when you could have achieved the same goal the first time around.
    ZAHMAN.
