Hi, my name is Autumn, and I'm 18 years old. I am currently attending Nashville State Community College in Nashville, Tennessee to get my ADN-RN. I have already taken Psychology and English Comp. I (Summer 2012) and also A&P I, Statistics, Art Appreciation, and Speech (Fall 2012). The only other classes I am required to take to get into their nursing program is A&P II and Microbiology, but in order for my scholarship
to help, I have to take at least 4 classes, so I am taking English Comp. II and Medical Ethics online. So far, my GPA is a 4.0, and I plan to keep it that way to help my chances of getting accepted into the nursing program. My main concern is that Nashville State's nursing program is only a "candidate" for becoming accredited. My advisor said they are a "state based" school and most other schools will accept my credits when I plan to continue my education to get my BSN after working a couple of years. If the process goes through, Nashville State will be accredited in April of 2015. I have already mailed my nursing application in, and if I get accepted, I will start this Fall and graduate in May of 2015. I am very anxious, but I couldn't imagine myself being anything else but a nurse! Do y'all think I should play it safe and transfer to a nursing school that's already accredited, or would I be fine at Nashville State Community College? Thank you all for your help!!
