my professors suggested i not put all my eggs in one basket no matter how good a student i may be because nursing school
is competitive. quite frankly i agree but my other egg baskets means i'd need to wait for months doing nothing. i'm currently finishing up my pre-reqs to apply for the accelerated program at umdnj starting september 2009. this is plan a and other than the last pre-reqs, i think i *should* be able to get accepted.
the problem is i won't be able to finish the pre-reqs until the end of july, leaving only a month, by which time the 56 available seats could be likely filled up. if i wasn't able to get in for fall 2009, then i go to plan b: apply for the program starting @ winter 2009-10. if i get rejected all-together from umdnj or also don't get accepted for the winter program, i need a plan c. plan d is applying to any number of other schools
offering an accelerated program starting either in spring 2010 or summer 2010 (omg wait a whole year to start nursing school???). but i was wondering if anyone knew of any schools offering accelerated bsn which 1)starts winter 09-10 and 2) has an application deadline that hasn't passed yet or won't pass until around fall.
i saw a link on this site earlier to allnursingschools.com which listed a bunch of schools offering accelerated programs but i'm positive that it wasn't a complete list (umdnj wasn't even in it or other schools offering the asbn in nj, ooooh burn!!!
). so it would be great if anyone can help me fill in my plan c: find an asbn program which starts this winter. i would hate to resort to plan d because it would mean months wasted waiting, i would hate to do that because i just wanna get going on my career already.
if you're wondering if i have a plan e, the answer is yes: attend a 4-yr bsn program.... which i cannot even fathom resorting to right now....helllll nuuuuu:angryfire ....not after 6 yrs of architecture school
so hopefully plan a or b works but just in case i could really use help with plan c.
thank you x10!
as a little side note info on what i've got so far:
- chemistry with laboratory (4 credits)*
- human anatomy and physiology i & ii with laboratory (8 credits) **
- microbiology with laboratory (4 credits)
- psychology (3 credits)
- sociology (3 credits)
- statistics (3 credits)*
this is the pre-reqs for umdnj and i only have apii, chem, and statistics left to finish this summer. this is the least amount of prerequites on an absn program i've seen so far so other schools will probably need me scrambling to pick up another pre-req
