If I use the GI Bill, would I also be able to get other financial assistance? I DO NOT want to get another huge loan. If I dont use the GI BILL would I be able to get grants, financial aide, and maybe a small loan?
Well if you get the Post 9/11 GI Bill you will have everything covered since they are a Yellow Ribbon School. I literally pay ZERO dollars for school and that includes books and supplies. Then I get BAH on top of it. I am not sure about other things open, but I did do my FAFSA and I did not qualify for anything. I do write off any expenses at the end of year, but this year I will not have any. Financial aid at the school is really great though and they break it all down.
Is the bachelors program still 2 yrs or so?
I have no idea how long their BSN program is, but I do know you have to be a working nurse for one year before you can even start it.
Are the A&P classes really hard?
For me A&P 1 and 2 were a breeze and micro is more difficult. I can tell you that more then half my class failed A&P1.
Are the mods 5 weeks long?
Mods are 5 weeks long and it is 16 weeks of info. It is tough but it is just like military A-school. If you apply yourself you can do it, but be prepared to be married to MCI for 16 months.
What is the entrance exam like?
The entrance exams are easy they cover the basic subjects: Math, Science, English. You do not get a grade, you get an average. So to score really high in some categories you only need a 80 to be "top dog" among people who take the exams. I scored a 90 on one of them and was in the 98th percentile or something crazy like that. It was awhile ago so I do not remember the exact scores and percentiles.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
