I am applying to Marymount's BSN program as a transfer student for Fall 2011. I was wondering if anyone knew how competitive it is to get into this program? I took the TEAS V and I got an adjusted individual score of 86.7% but my... Read More

    How dare you! You hide here behind your silly little name and bash a good institution and good people. You are pathetic and sad. Calling someone a Devil is not only unprofessional, it really smacks of a child who is angry and not happy with herself and her life choices. The Dean of Marymount University has fought so hard for that program, and the pass rates are out of this world so know what the hell you are talking about before you spit up all over the place. Get over yourself, stand on your own two feet, be an outstanding caregiver or get out of nursing! You spread your petty little sadness to others who are already in a state of fear and concern for their future and you puke out this trash. I hope your new boss knows the kind of person they have hired and you will find some way to make real meaning out of your little horrible attitude. We are blessed to be nurses, our teachers and schools may all have issues, but when it comes down to it we need to step up and be professionals and bring some sense of peace and help to those who need it. If you want a kick ass nursing program, Marymount is for you!

    @Carol Martin: For what it's worth, the positive experiences I have had at Marymount so far outweigh the negative comments on this message board.

    I understand that some get frustrated with school administration, and I remember from college that it can be frustrating (that goes for any school). But, like I said, I have to go by my own experiences with the school and those have been VERY positive, so far!

    I would still be THRILLED to go to school there!! :-) Let's hope I get in!

    I was recently accepted to MU's ABSN program. I would sincerely appreciate any insight you would be willing to sure about MU's program. I am from NY, so I don't know anyone that has been through the program.
    How did you like the structure of the program? Did you like your professors? Did you find them to be helpful? How were exams? Was the grading fair? What's the required passing grade? Were you well-prepared for your finals? Do you feel prepared to take the NCLEX? Do you get to choose were you take your clinicals?
    Would you recommend this program to a friend?
    Thank you so much for your time.

    All the people whining about Marymount have no idea what nursing programs are like at other schools. I graduated from MU and I have been working non stop since. I had a great experience there. Every nursing school has occasional issues with clinicals and paperwork. A major problem for people doing the accelerated second bachelors is that they are used to the "normal" experience with their first degree. Nursing school has a lot more in the field work with a lot of moving parts. Stop whining and get to it. And guess what...life is hard...deal with it. When you graduate the true test is coming with actually working.

    I just got in to the Spring class at Marymount....obviously waiting to hear back from other programs, but I believe from what I've seen it's a good program. I was just super relieved to be accepted somewhere. So tired of filling out applications and blowing cash on transcripts and fees. If accelerated nursing programs are anything like accelerated medic programs, yes, there are ALOT of moving parts. Clinical rotations in OBGYN, PEDS, ER, Critical Care, ICU, Surgery, PICU, L&D and of course, the morgue...between the hundreds of hours spent on your feet, in the bus and in the classroom...I'm guessing the complainers are just a wee bit tired and frayed lol...

    Hey, I just started this semester at Marymount and I like it so far. My main complaint is actually just that a few of the classes I'm taking feel a little too easy..but other than that everything seems really good here so far. I also have noticed that a lot of people that got their BSN's here have come back for graduate programs or are working as preceptors for nurses...they all say that this school really prepared them for the real world of nursing so that's a huge comfort to me. I think anyone complaining about this school is just ******** for no reason...so far I haven't had any issues with paperwork..but then again, I follow through on everything and keep copies so that I would never have a real issue. Be prepared and do your **** and life will be a lot easier!!
