Rachie Roo - If you do really well on the NLN, I would say that you would have a chance. I know at least one person who had similar grades to you and got in. I would definitely apply. No, getting accepted to SW does not guarantee admission to the nursing school
MSTURN - Why do you get on every SW thread and criticize people for going to SW? We all know that you are going to U of M. Why not focus on those threads? There are several different routes to the RN and everyone has to find the one that works for them. I chose SW b/c I needed a nights and weekend program. I intend to go straight for my Master's as I already have a bachelor's. My employer paid for SW, will hire me as a nurse here, and will pay for my master's degree. This was the best route for me. One could ask you why are you going to U of M? Why would you not go to Union's accelerated 2nd degree BSN? Why not go to UT's direct entry MSN-CNL? You would have a Master's degree in 2 years? Why waste your time going to U of M for just a BSN?
I realize that you are probably trying to be helpful, but having a friend in the program does not make you an authority. Criticizing people, again and again, for their choices does not add value to these discussions, either.
