Nashville State CC Nursing Program Fall 2012 - Page 14Register Today!
- May 16, '12 by Bird5471I did not apply anywhere else because- like some others- I wanted to go somewhere I could afford. It's not looking good at this point however since it seems no one except those that got a letter last friday has received any news at all. I have a 4.0 gpa by the way, and even took chemistry, nutrition, and medical terminology to beef up my resume so to speak. I also have a bachelors in psych already. I guess I really must have stunk up that interview to be overlooked this way. Very disheartening.
- May 16, '12 by jjordan8130I understand. There are other affordable options. Several of them. Some are quite the drive depending on where you live, so that could pose a problem. I felt like TSU was affordable. I also considered Columbia State and Motlow, but ultimately I wasn't willing to drive that far for school. I work at Vanderbilt and NS/TSU were the closest to work. I can work all night and zip to campus for class pretty quick.
I can't believe you haven't gotten a letter. WOW. It does sound like you're better suited for a BSN program though. Surely with a degree and those extra classes you more than meet the pre-req requirements. I hope you get a letter soon. When I attended the information meeting the director said they called people the first day of class because a few dropped out.
Best of luck to you!
- May 17, '12 by Bird5471Well, I have begun searching out other options. Aquinas takes applications for the Spring semester, and the Belmont program for the accelerated BSN accepts applications from transfer students up to August. These schools are in another UNIVERSE when cost is considered- but I really need to get started so that all this time I've spent already hasn't been a waste. Thanks for your kind words.
- May 17, '12 by jjordan8130They are both VERY expensive. That's why I didn't apply to either of them. I have 4 small children, so I have to be careful with my spending. The community colleges and state universities are really all I can afford. Vanderbilt will pay a certain amount, but they recently changed the tuition benefit policy so they pay less now. I'd rather hold off and have them pay for the majority of my masters. It makes better sense that way.
Anyway, hopefully you'll get a letter this week! I'm waiting on my letter from TSU. Yesterday I checked the mail three times.
- May 17, '12 by MoniqueSWith Aquinas, you have to take the HESI and have ENG COMP II completed.
I am on a scholarship quest (Unles I hear from NSCC) So far, Aquinas has been very helpful on this matter. I want to be working as a RN in 2014. I feel that delaying my nursing education is not an option for me because I'm in my early 40s and for lots of other reasons too. .
Good luck to everyone. Good thoughts that more letters will be sent out.
- May 17, '12 by jjordan8130I understand Monique. I'm nearly 30. My goal is to graduate in 2014.
- May 17, '12 by klunkettei too am waiting on my letter, from tsu. this is the only program i applied to and i'm hoping to be accepted. if not, then i will apply to a few other schools next year including nscc. untill then i'll be standing at my mailbox tomorrow at noon, waiting on my mail lady, lol.
- May 18, '12 by ashleyr0503Back from vaca & checked this first thing this morning! So sad to see some still haven't gotten letters. :-( but they do send "no" letters out too.. When I'm not sure though. Surprised they haven't yet so plans can be made. Columbia state does a Spring program also for those that wanted to apply sooner than next Fall.
- May 18, '12 by ashleyr0503When I applied I was told you had to be under the pre-nursing university parallel (which I was for all pre-reqs) then if accepted into the program they'd change your major to assoc of applied science in nursing. Most schools only take a Fall program. Columbia however does fall & spring but their acceptance is totally different than anyone elses & I personally disagree with it. But that's there at least. All 2 year schools are required to offer a nursing program now... But most are still in the process or getting their stuff done & lined up. Vol State is about 2 years out from my understanding.
- May 19, '12 by jjordan8130I received my acceptance letter for TSU's program today!!!!! Woot woot!!!
