My original idea to get into nursing was to goto a community and knock out the prereq's. Once that was done I was going to transfer to ASU and earn my BSN there.
Now that is still the plan. However, the Enrollment Counselor I talked with said that ASU's program is GPA based (I knew that). However, he told me that the past few semesters, the cut off has been around 3.25. Anyone know if that is true?
I'm took that with a grain of salt because it seemed like he was trying to sell the Community College program. He basically said my best bet would be to apply now for the Community College program, work on ASU's prereq's, but make sure I finish the CC prereq's.
Now I did not apply for the CC program yet. However, he does have me thinking because I'm generally a "B" student. Aside from getting into the field a tad bit quicker... are there any disadvantages with doing the RN-BSN path Vs getting a regular BSN?
Oh, if anyone cares, I'm taking Intermediate algebra, 1st year Composition, Medical terminology
for heath care workers & Elementary Spanish I. that's a total of 13 credits. I'm taking the medical term class because it's 1 credit & will help pad my GPA. I was also able to get my A&P credits accepted from when i was in a Respiratory Therapy program. They are also letting me test out of Micro, but otherwise those are the only credits that they will accept.
