Anyone applying for a nursing program where you get your ASN not BSN?
- 0Apr 23, '13 by Epooler2013I'm applying for the nursing program at my state college this fall and just wanted to know f anyone else is trying to get into a program where you only get your associates. It would be nice to compare our class load and application processes! I feel like my school doesn't require much on the application other than courses and the NLN. Anyone else? Thanks!
- 0Apr 23, '13 by nursingstudentmomof5I have applied to both and the ASN program applications were simple. They didn't ask for recommendations or anything they just had me fill out an online application and they did the rest. Once you meet the minimum requirements they have you sit for the exam whether it's the Hesi Teas or Kaplan.
- 0Apr 23, '13 by acunnin4I am applying to an associates nursing program for the fall of 2013. I have to take the HESI A2 exam next month and send that with my application. The application was simple, required no recommendations, etc. I just have to submit an application, my A2 scores, a transcript, and proof of my Hep B vaccinations. I have already finished all of my pre-reqs (A&P 1, A&P 2, Composition 1, Computer Competency class, and Probability & Statistics) and my co-reqs (Microbiology, General Psychology, Fundamentals of Speech, and Humanities/Fine Arts Elective - I chose Music Appreciation). I even took a few extra classes that I thought may help me, such as CPR/First Aid and Medical Terminology.
If I do good on my A2 exam and all goes well, then I will only have 6 more required classes -
Nursing Concepts, Skills, and Processes
Nursing Process I
Nursing Process II
Nursing Process III
Nursing Process IV
Good luck with your application!
- 0Apr 24, '13 by SopranoKrisI just got accepted into an ADN program (associates of applied science in nursing). They have a points-based admissions program as follows:
Completion of co-reqs
Paid direct patient care experience hours
Completion of CNA, Phlebotomy, EMT-Basic or Intro to Health Professions
You get points based on the categories above. The required pre-reqs are: Writing 121, Intermediate Algebra, Anatomy, Healthy Lifestyles and Psychology. You get additional points if you complete all the co-reqs: Physiology, Microbiology, Microbiology Lab, Pharmacology, Human Growth & Development, Humanities (core), Communications (core).
If you are accepted, you can be placed into the full-time 2-Year track or the part-time 3-Year track. The part-time track allows you to work up to 20 hours per week while you're going to school. I was placed in the 3-Year track, so I'm going to work on courses towards the BSN while I'm completing the ADN. That way, when I'm done with my ADN, all I have left to do is my clinicals for the BSN The university where I want to get my BSN has an agreement with our school that will allow you to do this if you're currently an ADN student.
