What do you know about Dixie State's RN program?

  1. I'm considering applying to Dixie State's nursing program. Does anyone have any advice they can share regarding admissions, competition, tuition, NCLEX passing rates, or other information that would be helpful? I will be applying to SLCC's program at the end of the month, but am looking in to other programs that I may be able to get into more quickly. Brief education background: I have an associates degree from SLCC and all prerequisites will be complete by mid-December. My overall GPA is roughly 3.4, however, my prequisite GPA is likely a 3.8 or higher. Any pointers to help this confused momma is appreciated. By the way, I should mention I have 3 year old twin boys. Will that be simply too much to handle? How many days per week is nursing school typically?

    I was accepted into Dixie's program for Spring 2011. For this upcoming spring semester, they had 147 applicants with 40 being accepted. To be competitive applicants should have a 3.5 GPA in pre-req classes. However, a person with a 3.35 was accepted because they had a high essay and TEAS score. The schedule so far looks like classes will be on Tuesdays and Fridays, and labs/clinicals will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The program has high NCLEX pass rates (if I remember right, I think its in the high 80's) and also has high graduation rates. Tuition for the three semester program id estimated at around $8,000. Dixie has a very informative website about their nursing program; you might want to check it out if you havent already. Hope this helps some.
