I am a newbie to posting on this site but I have been lurking for a few months.
I am very new to the DC area; recently moved here to be with my fiance. I am applying to a few different BSN programs: Marymount, Catholic, GMU, Trinity, and Georgetown (maybe).
I have 62 credits from a community college, but I have not taken Chem or A&P II. I have 4 years of hospital experience working as a nursing assistant. My GPA is a 3.5, but I have received A's in all the science courses.
I met with an adviser at Georgetown and she told me to focus on Marymount because the Georgetown program is esp competitive and have only accepted 3 students from Comm. Colleges in the past 2 years.
I then met with an adviser from Marymount and he told me I should have Chem and A&P II finished before starting the program.
I would love any advise anyone has to offer. Marymount is currently on the third application review for Spring 2010 and I am curious if I should apply for Spring w/o having Chem and A&PII? Do I have a shot at getting into this program or any other with out those two classes? The reason I am asking is simply that I am not a resident of VA or DC and will pay enormously to go to NOVA and I am trying to avoid that route and just begin a BSN program.
Sorry for rambling, I hope my post makes sense. I would love to hear from anyone with any knowledge about the DC/VA area BSN programs.
