Wasn't the app deadline for CSU-Pueblo in May? And they haven't notified you of whether you are in or not as of late August? I merely ask as I thought the turn-around time was quicker than that (although I don't know from personal experience, but rather, only what their front office staff related to me via e-mail). I was pleased with the responsiveness their front office provided to all my questions via e-mail, unlike another metro Denver school from whom I never heard a word about my enquiries. But I digress...
I looked into this program, if for nothing else, the ability to apply so early for a June 2007 start and know WELL in advance if you were accepted or not. And what GregRN says is true, their NCLEX scores are lower than most BSN matriculating schools in the state. What they are actually, I don't know, but you can do some research at the State of Colorado BON and see how they stack up (sorry, I don't have the link right offhand). Ultimately, my wife was not willing to move away from Denver so I could attend there, so I, of course, didn't apply
I was told, however, that several students live in Colorado Springs, CO and make the commute effectively. So, should you get in, you might want to look at finding a residence in that town rather than Pueblo, CO.
I think, and I may be wrong, but the CU/CSU Schools of Nursing around the state are all on this same "accelerated" schedule. The only two that I'm aware of at this time where you can complete the BSN in, say, 13 months rather than 18 months are Metro State College of Denver and Regis University. I guess it all comes down to your definition of accelerated?
Man, I can be verbose :chuckle
