lasalle nursing - phila area waiting lists
- 0Jun 20, '07 by philanurse2bI wanted to know if anyone has attended, or will attend Lasalle's BSN program. I'm thinking of going to ccp then transferring over to lasalle. My question is does Lasalle have a long waiting list? Also are there any RN programs in the Delaware Valley that does'nt have a waiting list? My biggest fear is that I'll work really hard with my grades, and then when its time to transfer I won't be able to because of waiting lists.

- 0Aug 5, '07 by glamgalRNI really wouldn't believe all of the "waiting list rumors" that you hear out there. Call the dept. of nursing and find out everything for yourself. I'm going into my 2nd year at Community's program and before I started I heard there was a 2 year wait list-well I applied in Dec, 2005 and took my allied health test in Feb, 2006 and found out i got in 2 weeks later so I started Sept, 2006. I know if you want to start in the fall you need to apply early (not sure what it's like a lasalle but I would think maybe in Oct.)

I know this post is super old but... I'm starting Lasalle's BSN program in a month. I have my stethoscope, ordered my uniforms, and i've been driving myself crazy wondering what Lasalle will be like. Can you give me any sort of advice/inside information/ heads up on the classes, clinicals, teachers, recommended books, and pretty much anything about the program that will help me.
- 1Jul 27, '08 by LindeeloornScorp, dont stress! I graduated from lasalle two years ago (granted, it was from the achieve program, but its basically the same as the day program) you will be in the new nursing building at benilde tower, they have alot of new resourses and state of the art programs that i didnt have. if you run into any trouble, there are great staff people as resources with study groups run by faculty as well as skill labs to take advantage of.
I suggest you look over what normal values are for assessment skills (resp rate, heart rate, etc) as well as blood gas values. dont worry about what they mean yet, that will come later.
Also: PLEASE read over the school of nursing handbook they will give you, they are very serious about their rules and policies, and will stick to them whenever a problem arises.
YOu will be fine as long as you dont let stress get in your way. congrats to you and good luck!!
