    ooohh good tip! Do you recommend trying to form some sort of relationship with the nursing adviser? If you maintain and keep in touch with them, do you believe it will provide some sort of an advantage?
    Yes! Keep in touch with them so that you know exactly what is going on with your application.

    I went directly into a BSN program from high school and it was exactly as the OP describes. There are MANY schools that do it this way as I was accepted into all 4 of the colleges that I applied to- into the nursing program- as a senior in high school. At my school, it was the route the vast majority of students took. The classes you needed to take began 1st semester freshman year and many of them were major restricted (meaning you could only register for them if you were a nursing major). If one did not transfer into the nursing school until sophomore year, that student was already 2 semesters behind.
    Ditto. I was a transfer student second semester freshman year, but accepted on my high school transcript. 4.3 GPA, 34 ACT. The direct entry BSN programs like this are WONDERFUL. No entrance exams, no pre-reqs to worry about, but limited spots in the program. With the exception of the accelerated BSN program, all the nursing students in my program came in as declared nursing majors and started our nursing classes freshman year.

    I am SO jealous! I wish there had been a school like this in my area, but unfortunately the only program we have like that is a combined BA/MD program. I.e., you get to secure a slot in medical school if you're accepted.

    Off topic but I started out in a 6-year BA/MD program before transferring to nursing school.

    I would never in a million years recommend it to ANYONE. Even the physicians I work with who graduated from one talk about how terrible it is. Just constant, never-ending, insane stress.

    My BSN program rocked, though.
