Hi everyone, I'm new here. I just finished my pre-req's at NVCC and I was accepted to GMU and Shenandoah's Accelerated BSN programs but I am planning on attending Shenandoah. I like the class curriculum better and I live in... Read More

    Hi everyone,

    I was so excited to find this thread. I have recently been accepted to both Shendandoah and GWU for Fall 2011, and I am leaning towards Shenandoah because it's cheaper. I am glad to hear that you are all having good experiences there, its so reassuring to me.

    Hi FlowerFlour,
    I am glad to hear that you are leaning towards Shenandoah. I made the same decision. I have been asking around the hospital that I volunteer, all the nurses that I talked to agreed that it does not matter what school you go, at the end you have to take the same exam- NCLEX. Once you pass that exam, you are an RN. I don't want to pay student loans for years. Also, I like Shenandoah's clinical sites. I am deferring my start date to spring semester. I need a little breathing room after finishing my bachelors this semester. Overall, I am pretty happy with my choice.

    Does anyone going to Shenandoah need a roommate or know someone who does? I'm moving to NOVA for the program and I don't know anyone to live with! I am 27/f and went to WVU for undergrad.

    Flowerflour and carleyrose- I am also attending the SU program starting in Fall 2011.
    I thought it would be nice to know some people who are also starting at the same time before going into the program. My email is nitasha.k@hotmail.com, please feel free to get in touch. I'm nervous yet excited about starting this program.

    Hey carlyrose and shipstu,

    Looks like we'll be classmates! I've sent in my deposit so I am definitely starting at SU in the fall. Are both of you attending at the Leesburg campus? I thought about joining the new cohort in Winchester; I'll be living about halfway between the two cities. But, it seems like the ASD students in Winchester would be grouped into classes with regular nursing undergrads, and I like the idea of taking classes with just other ASD students (like in Leesburg).

    carly, I don't know of anyone who needs a roommate but if I hear anything I'll be sure to let you know!

    I can't wait to start the program. I finished my undergrad in December '09 and have been itching to start nursing school since then.

    Yay! congratulations. I am attending Leesburg. I am going to the June 10th orientation. I graduated from WVU in 2006 with a degree in communication.

    I'll be starting the nursing program in the Spring. I would like to meet people before the program starts. I'm doing the transfer 15 month program.

    Hi! Does anyone know which textbook is likely to be used for pharmacology in the 15 mo program? Also, is there a facebook page that I could join to get ahold of future classmates?

    We used Pharmacology and the Nursing Process by Lilley last fall and I am pretty sure they used it last semester too. There is Facebook page for the entire nursing program but nothing ever gets posted on it.
