That's why I'm also looking into Shadyside's PT program (2 nights a week and every other weekend). It would be 3 yrs since the first yrs courses are done. I figure with the way CCAC is going, I would prob graduate at the same time this way.
She works for the Registrar and has been answering my questions.
- 0Nov 6, '12 by beans1019my GPA is a 3.89. I'm in A&P 2 right now and I had A's in A&P 1 and Micro. I didn't get in last time around but that's because I was taking those 2 courses at the time. I wasn't sure if I was going to get in because I'm still in A&P 2 right now but my GPA must have been high enough. A lot of people I know who didn't get in for fall '12 ended up going to Mercy School of Nursing. So far everyone loves it. My neighbor is a graduate from that program from many years ago and she loved it as well. I had thought about it but being in Rostraver, it was quite a haul for me, especially when I have my son in school and my husband leaves for work at 6:30am.
Better luck next time. Also might want to try Penn State. While waiting for my letter I almost called to make an appointment to speak with someone there. I have another friend who's a CRNP and did all her schooling there.
- 0Nov 6, '12 by PghGirl7I currently hold a 3.8 GPA and I have Micro completed (got a B that ruined my 4.0). I'm currently in AP1. I am also a part of Allegheny campus's RN Achievement Program (which has guaranteed spots, but not all students in the program get in). After this semester, I have AP2, PSY 108 & a humanities class left, which I plan to take over the summer in '13.
I wish you guys luck next time around or at a different school
