Who here has done the nursing program
here? I checked other posts but it was more of a compare and contrast of UTHC, which I already know is a good program. Does any body know how good the nursing program at UIW is though? All I ever read about the program is that it's expensive. But money is not an issue (NO, I'm not rich, but I have a 73,000 MGIB, they do FASFA, scholarship AND yellow ribbon, so I'm good with tuition and I'll be a transer student, I am almost done with all my required courses) Is the nursing program hard to get into? Average GPA? ACT? Lots of hands on?
Yes, I know UTHC is probably the better choice and its cheaper, but honestly I'm kinda self concious about getting in....They have more pre-reqs and I worry my GPA isn't high enough. I have a 3.4GPA
By the time I am out of the Army I'll be 26...almost 27! I can't be re-taking classes to get into a nursing program and reapplying every year only to get turned out (never know unless I try right?) I know it sounds lame but I really just wanna get my BSN and get on with my life after the military...I'M GETTIN OLD! So UIW seems the best route as of now.
I mostly hear about the MBA degrees from people who have been, which obviously doesn't interest me!
Any information from people who have been or people who have heard about it in regards to nursing would be great!
