UIU CEP - page 2

Hi everyone, I found out that I'm eligible to apply for the UIU CEP program :) I'm really excited, but also a little worried since it's such new school in Arizona. I've read some posts on here... Read More

    I'd ask that you read my posts again. You are misconstruing what I said. And no, I'm talking about the requirements to actually get in. Unless someone is absolutely desperate and have no other options available they should be aware that sometimes waiting is the best option.

    I apologize if I came across like that or if I hit a nerve. Sometimes you have to hear differing opinions. If you always only hear opinions that agree with your own you may miss out on a lot. Best of luck.

    I assume you're talking only about the GPA requirement then, although you did mention courses before. I have a 3.97 GPA so the GPA requirements of any university never mattered to me. I agree it's necessary to hear differing opinions, but if things are presented in a way that are not really accurate then that is what I have an issue with.

    No I'm talking about the courses as well. Chemistry, patho, and stats. I get that uiu rolls some into their program but that for me is a caution sign. I get where you are coming from.

    Why is that a caution sign for you? I totally get why they do it. The CEP programs are basically each university's respective RN to BSN program. They aren't going to make a whole new program just for CEP. That'd be much too costly and take way too much time. So, they just put together the MN program and the university's RN to BSN program for the CEP.
    Chemistry is a requirement to even enter the MN pool, so I don't know why you brought that up. I took patho through GCU and they transferred that over (along with some other upper-level division courses I had). UIU's Stats class can be transferred or taken with them. I opted to take it with them because I could take it over the summer in person (with a small class, as opposed to the 42 that could be in a CC summer class) in a shortened format. Aside from Stats and the critical thinking class (which is actually kind of enjoyable), all my courses with them will be nursing related. That's what I like.
    Tonight in my block 1 class, the topic of job placement came up. My teacher, who holds a PhD in Nursing, made it very clear to us all that it is important to have a Bachelor's Degree, as that is just the way nursing is going. When we asked her if it mattered where we got the degree from, she laughed, and said no - just as long as you have proof that you have the degree.
    Seriously, Poolparty, if we went to Iowa and told a bunch of nurses that we got out BSN from UIU, they'd probably smile and comment on how beautiful the campus is. It just like nurses who got their BSN from GCU always get asked if they were forced to take religious classes, or NAU nurses getting comments about snow.

    I will see you this fall then. Which Maricopa Nursing are you going to? I'm going to Scottsdale and UIU of course.

    Hi! I'm glad to see someone else going to UIU also. I will be going to MCC. Looking forward to meeting you in class at UIU!
