    Yes, you will have classes the summer of 2013. It is possible for you to have classes and clinicals the same day (clinicals are done by a lottery system), but I don't know many people who...

    80K? Good point, windsurfer 8! Although the OP mentioned 17K in undergraduate loans, I didn't really do the math. That is a significant amount of debt and an ADN would be much less expensive, at...

    I know a couple of people who did the MU program who did not have cars. MU will assume that you have transportation to and from any site or activity and they make it pretty clear that they have no...

  11. New Graduate jobs in MD,VA,DC areas
    Congrats on passing the NCLEX! Here (at the hospitals in the DC and Baltimore area) it is NOT normal to go to the unit in person and speak with the nurse manager. In fact, the behavior would...

    IMHO it's a good program. The NCLEX pass rate is high and the 16 months go by quickly. I couldn't imagine fitting all the information into 12 months. Doing it in 16 was very demanding.

    I went through the ABSN program at MU and would not suggest that you work if you don't have to, for at least the 1st semester until you get your feet wet and see how you adjust. It is a demanding...

    Since your manager is a health professional, that should be helpful also. As far as taking the ATI, if you get a good score it definitely won't hurt, but I would say that it depends on your...
