    I got a rejection letter Saturday for this Fall. Reason given was they didn't have all college transcripts. This is confusing as I applied last year for the Spring and was rejected due to my index and not transcripts. Was I supposed to have all of my transcripts resent to Southwest to reapply? This is a HUGE bummer. I am in a crappy job holding pattern until I can get this show on the road
    Sorry to hear that tres1208. I thought they mailed everyone letters last month to acknowledge that they had or had not received all of your info. Did you get one? If not maybe you can dispute that...??? What was your index this time if you don't mind me asking? Has anyone else heard anything?

    Is Baptist a two year program like southwest, or is it a 4 year?

    It's a 2 year program in a way it will just take a year and Half to get started with clinicals.... I have a friend that works at lebonour tho and she said the they are about to stop hiring people without bachelor degrees... Which is why I want to go to baptist... How long will it take for other hospitals to start doing the same thing

    Why not just go to baptist as RN-BSN after graduating from SW? It'll take around the same amount of time as just going to Baptist alone since their clinical start dates are so far off. And you'll at least be an RN. Their RN-BSN program is based on 4 trimesters (1yr)... That's what I hope to do.

    Baptist is a 4 year BSN program. At STCC, you start clinical immediately and continue them with each class for their 2 year program. With Baptist, the students may not start clinical for 1 year or more after they have entered the actual Nursing program.

    If/when you graduate from STCC you will have an ASN. Now don't get my wrong, Baptist does have an awesome RN-BSN program that is 12 months. So if you go the STCC to Baptist (for your BSN) route, you can complete your ASN and BSN in a total of 3 years instead of the 4 years it takes to complete the traditional BSN program at Baptist.

    I plan to do an RN- BSN after SWCC as well. Not sure where I haven't looked into it yet. I too wish SW took student loans it would make things a lot easier on my budget.I hope the phone calls come in the next week or so time to start planning and knowing how much cash I am going to need to set aside
