Transfering nursing schools

  1. I was wondering if anyone attended one nursing school then transfered to another to finish nursing school (especially the BSN program to a Dallas area program). Do you think it was easier to transfer nursing schools rather than to wait and have to compete with everyone trying to get into nursing school? I might have to do this next Fall, and I was just wondering if anyone has done this and has any good or bad experiences. I'm also going to post it on the pre-nursing boards. I've already talked to some of the colleges but they say I have to wait for them to review my transcripts. Thanks for any info anyone can give me!!

    Not sure about the BSN porgams, but transferring into an ADN program in DFW will be difficult. The Health Occupations Office at El Centro College in Dallas told me that they had not accepted a transfer students in some time simply because they did not have room. the spots were usually filled with returning students who stopped for grades, illness or other reaasons.

    Of course a transfer is possible in Dallas, just very hard simply due to lack of space.

    Your best bet is to call around and get the info from the horse's mouth.

    I will keep my fingers crosssed and pray for a spot for you.

    My bud from nursing school transfered from Baylor to UTA during our second semester. She had previously been accepted to both, though, so that might have made a difference.

    My BSN program in Stephenville, Texas is small. There was no waiting list to get in. You don't have to have a 4.0 to get in. I really like it, the instructors are very good about helping you in any way that they can.

    PM me if you want to know more.

    You can start out as a traditional student, or as an LVN, or as an RN. You just start in different places.

    We have had several people from the metroplex there.

    It is a great school. I love it.
