    I graduated from Ball State in July 2013. I'm glad the program was designed the way that it was because I was able to continuing working full time. The last semester is the most challenging, especially because of the amount of clinical hours you have to put in. Being organized is key and having good group members to do assignments. The program exposes you to a lot of material. Take a review course to help you prepare for boards and you will be fine! I passed boards on my first try and so did others that I heard of.
    Good luck.

    I have a ADN and a BS in Education. Can you apply to this program if you have a bachelors in another field or do you need to have a BSN?

    BUMP. Also, there is very little information on this program out there. GPA questions were not answered in the thread and YEARS EXPERIENCE were not mentioned either. Here is my story: I am an ASN and I have my Bachelor in another scientific field. I have a 3.5GPA in my ASN, but absolutely no experience. I am an Anatomy and Physiology professor at another college and I consider myself decently successful. I plan on starting an RN position if I get into BSU, but I want to know what it's like before I apply. Do I have a chance of being accepted?
