Hi everyone! My anticipated graduation date is in spring of 2016.... A long way away, but I thought maybe we could share a thread? In a student at DeSales University in Center Valley, PA. What's... Read More

    I think memphismom might have been talking about the HRSA scholarship where the goverment pays for your school and gives you a stipend every month for a minimum of two years service and a undeserved clinic/hospital/etc. Thousands apply for it and only a couple hundred get it! I am working on my letters of rec and making myself a strong candidate to apply next year.

    I have a question out of curiosity. I clicked on this thread because I will be graduating June 2016 from my BSN program (It seems so far away!) but from reading the comments I am confused. Is everyone still working on prereqs or on really long waitlists, I am from Oregon and I have learned that our state does things differently than most others, like programs start once a year and the waitlist is only good for that year then they have to reapply, and programs have 500-1500 applicants for 30-80 positions each year so many students have to apply for several years (you get extra points the second year you apply), they also don't use HESI or TEAS exams. This is purely out of curiosity about how other programs work!
    Every area and school are entirely different. I have only heard of one school in my area that can sometimes go into a wait list, but not to the severeity of yours.

    I'm a hopeful summer 2016 graduate from Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA. I'm finishing up my pre-reqs now and hope to start the program Spring 2014.

    I need to take the TEAS in October. Trying to start studying for it now. Hopefully after recital crazy week is over. I'm a single Mom and my daughter's dance recital is this weekend.

    Summer semester starts Monday, so hopefully I can fit in TEAS studying around the classes I'm taking this summer too.

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah there are 8 ADN/BSN programs within 50 miles of one another here in Oregon so many students apply to all of them so each school selects there applicants but many students are accepted to more than one school so each school also created a waitlist to fill spots of students who decide on another program but after the program starts any student still waitlisted have to reapply the following year. At 50-120 bucks per program I feel like it is a money making machine.

    I just got in to the program and have my first Summer off in a few years, since I started this process with pre reqs! I start the ADN program August 26. Graduating May 2015. Thankful I just kept taking courses through two rejection letters because now I only have to take the core NUR courses!!!!

    My school only has fifteen slots for about 125 applicants. No wait lists, have to reapply each year. I got in my third try, just kept plucking away at the courses that some nursing students don't take until they are in the program.

    Hey I'm over at DeSales! I looked into Cedar Crest but DeSales was more affordable. So we're on the same schedule... Maybe we could study sometime? How old is your little one?

    So I'm taking an A&PI class through Bucks County Community College ( my school will accept this) and its totally online with a virtual lab. Has anyone ever done a virtual lab? I'm very interested to see how this will come into play.

    I am (hopefully) starting the program at my community college in the spring of 2014 and will graduate spring 2016. Doing developmental psych and pharmacology over the summer now. And health math in the fall just as something to do to keep me fresh and not get to big of a break.
    I'm on the same boat as you! Got rejected to the only private BSN program I applied too. So I have to apply Sept-Oct for local ADN programs to start in the Spring of 2014... Re taking Dev Psych, and taking nursing prep courses to keep my mind running still : ) Good luck!!

    My daughter is 4.5 and my son is 2.5.

    I never had a virtual lab? That sounds interesting... I have seen it mentioned in some of the distance grad school programs I've been looking into.
