Has anyone had any luck with applying at National University for their nursing program? I applied back in Oct 06 and have been waiting to hear from them. They are supposed to notify in 3 months. I... Read More

    Hey dachlewis, would you mind telling me a little about yourself? I noticed that you are new on here and I just thought I'd ask since we are going to be classmates!!!

    Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted! I haven't posted on here in ages! I am in my second class and things are beeyond crazy. Whomever it was that mentioned the need to "teach yourself", hit the nail right on the head. There is just too much to know and too little time to learn it! I am still working 3 days a week, but I suspect that won't last for much longer. Scary, hearing what everyone is saying about the lack of jobs when you graduate. I am going to be looking at mountains of student loan debts! Well, hopefully things will be different by then. Best of luck to EVERYONE!

    Congrats to those who have gotten accepted so far! It's crazy that you guys will be starting in April 2010 because I started in April 2009 (Cohort 18)... I cannot believe how fast this is flying by! Congratulations again, I remember how excited I was when I found out!

    Congrats to everyone who got accepted to cohort 22!!! I'm sure you are all doing a happy dance too! =) How awesome! I am planning on sending in my application this week for the July 2010 cohort. Guess I better get studying for the TEAS! just gotta finish this darn ILR class first.

    Congrats again to those who got accepted!

    Yeah, that is one thing I am scared about...I really hope that jobs will be available (sign on bonuses and I asking too much? lol!) soon and hopefully the economy will be much better by the time we are through with school! Who knows might get bumped up into our cohort!! That would be great huh?

    Twilight...I would LOVE that! Although that would be super stressfull because I've got a 2 1/2 year old and a 4 1/2 year old that I would have to find full time care for. My oldest will start Kindergarten this next year and I am planning on her being gone full day so I can do school! LOL However, I would never complain about getting bumped up into an earlier cohort! Keeping my fingers crossed, but my grades are pretty good, so I don't know if that is how they judge who gets bumped up or not!?!? I guess I'll just have to wait and find out, huh?

    Have fun doing all of the preps for your cohort! Must be extremely exciting and the best 'early' Christmas gift ever! =)

    Oh man! Well I know whatever happens will be the best for you and your kids!!! I have no idea how they bump people up into cohorts...the fairest way I can think of is taking the most qualified applicant and going down the list. Yeah, I just emailed my advisor and she told me that I need to take three classes. Easily done before the orientation in February too! They have Spanish for the workplace and I don't know why advanced Spanish would not count for that...I need to email my advisor and ask...I think it should but oh well.

    It's not looking to good for me guys. I still have not received an email. =( My stats aren't that great but I don't know. Not sure how long it takes to send out all emails. Congrats again to those who got in though! Exciting!

    Same situation here hiphippo, but I know of at least 2 others who have not recieved any confirmation or denials yet. I guess they are sending out emails in small batches each day or only sending emails to the people on top of the list for now. I just want to know my verdict so that I can move on with whatever the outcome. I am constantly checking my email and this forum just to see if any others have got any info about acceptance. Hopefully we hear from them soon.

    Does anyone know how long the BSN program at National University is? I've heard 22 months and I've heard 18 months. Thanks guys.

    Murse and hiphippo, hang in there! I hope you guys get something soon! I really would like you guys to join me! Don't give up!

    Jammy: I know what you mean! When I went to the first forum they had, they said 18 months. But when I went to the actual Nursing Forum they said 22 months. Verdict? 22 month program. Although, there are a few classes that need to be taken for the BSN that are not nursing classes. You can do this before or after you start. Hope that helps!
