I hear you! I wont be going to another school like those either. It was a lesson learned. Going to a CC is so time consuming, but if you want it you gotta go for it. Im so annoyed. I thought about going back to MCI so I could get it done faster, plus I wouldnt have to do pre'reqs. I just cant see paying all that money. Does anyone know if their program is a bachelors program?
Hey I am a NN RN student. Both the NN and VA Beach campus have a BSN program and we were told the VA Beach campus would be rolling out an MSN program at the end of the year.
I do understand your frustration with transfer credits. For the RN program, not sure about MA, we are in the NLN candidacy phase. Even though we are regionally accredited we don't transfer most places because we are waiting for NLN.
Many of my classmates did MA and CNA at MCI. None of their credits transferred to the RN program and they said it was because the A&P, for example, that you take in lower programs is less thorough then the RN A&P. Which to further prove that point, everyone who failed out of A&P 1 in the beginning of our program dropped to LPN afterwards and said that their A&P was nothing compared to RN A&P.
I also understand your point of view on costs. Luckily I have the GI Bill so I am not paying for this. I already have a BS in another field and will be transferring to UoP for a MSN bridge program 2 months after I graduate here. That is pricey too, as are most private schools.
Good luck and let me know if you have anymore questions.
