    My concern with that is dishing out 2k for a class other programs don't require, then not even getting accepted. Frontier is my ultimate choice for a program but I wonder if I should hold off on applying until I find out if I get accepted into these other program.

    I am wondering the same thing. I have a ADN and a bachelors in education. I am interested in taking the class there, but wonder if it's worth it or not. I have a 3.05 in my B.S and a 3.0 with my ADN. I have less than 1 year of RN experience in med surg and corrections. I am wondering what to do to bolster my portfolio.

    I was told that GPA is not their main determiner, and you will find folks on here complaining because they have a high gpa and didn't get in while others did. I also have several cohorts who had less than a full year of experience when they applied, although all had at least a year when they went to bound, so I wouldn't worry too much about the years of experience. I think the main determinants are your references and your essays. Of course, I've never been in the meetings where they decide on the applicants, so it's all hearsay from a current student...
    If your thinking about taking a pre-req or two at Frontier vs at another school. I would suggest that taking stats or physical assessment at Frontier would be a good way to get to know the educational platform, it takes a while to get use to, and taking one or both of those courses during a term would help you ease into using it. Both courses are fairly easy to fit into your schedule. If Frontier is your first choice, I would suggest taking them, and using that time to work on your essay and references as well as networking with providers in your area. That way you will be way ahead of the game when you do get in.

    Good Luck!

    Excelsior or Bellevue University: Did anyone graduate from these two and if so, do you know if Frontier accepts credits from them?

    Frontier took my Excelsior ADN no problem.
