    Hello present and future Aria nursing students!
    I absolutely love this site and I have been following up with Aria threads that have helped me make my decision to attend this amazing school. I will be starting in September 2012 and can't wait to talk to more students who will be in class with me!

    I was torn between BSN accelerated programs and the program at Aria. I know the Aria program will better suit me and the amount if clinical hours is much more compared to the BSN programs. I just know it will be rough coming out with just a diploma as opposed to BSN, but hopefully things will make a bit of a turnaround when we finish.

    @philliesgirl the clinical hours and nclex pass rate made the decision for least it won't take that long to get the bsn from psu. I also saw last night that jefferson has a dual program for rn's to get their bsn & msn in 27 months.Hmmmmmm...decision decision!

    @ Awarren, I'm really not quite sure about when it will be an official BSN program. From what Julie told me, they are waiting for Penn State to officially put their stamp on it, so I wonder how that will be? Maybe we'll learn a bit more at orientation?

    @ Awarren, that's great, It's defintiely a lot to get done! I am still waiting for the medical packet to come in the mail to see exactly what I need to do. Overwhelming, but I'm so excited.
