Grand Canyon BSN in Tucson?

  1. Hi! Does anyone know anything about this program in Tucson? It looks like it is fairly new. I can't find any info about it on the GCU website.

    Is anyone in the program? Or does anyone have a link (other than this one) that would offer more information like prereqs, current wait list, is it only available to employees of the participating hospital?

    I can't believe that GCU doesn't have any detailed information on their site.

    Thank you!:spin::spin::spin:

    It's the same program and school, just now it's based in Tucson as well.

    Each class is about 5 weeks. You attend a live class once in the first week and once in the last week. You go through with the same students. It meets online once a week. The program last anywhere from 18-20 months (I've heard both).
    That's pretty much it in a nutshell.

    If you work for Carondelet-then it's free with a committment. If you take it yourself, then it's about $16k.

    I guess I failed to mention that this for for the online RN-BSN program! Ooops!

    It may not be the same for the traditional BSN.

    GCU does have a nursing program in Tucson. It is a BSN program that is a fast track program. I was a graduate of cohort 2. I believe they are on cohort 9 maybe. It is the same program that they have in Phx. The office and classes are at TMC-U at the corner of Grant and Rosemont.
