Denver School of Nursing and beyond...

  1. Hi All,

    I am in the ADN RN (graduate June 2007) program at DSN. I was about to withdraw recently, because I was afraid that other nursing schools would not admit me to their BSN, or graduate nursing programs. If anyone else is worried about that, here is a little bit of relief for you...

    I wrote to MSCD, CUHSC, and UW Tacoma (possible relocation in the works). I explained that we are not as of yet NLN accredited, but we are of course CO State board approved. So far, MSCD and UW have been very excited about me (!??), and enthusiastically invited me to apply. CUHSC is meeting to decide, but they may have to say yes, due to the CO Nursing School Consortium agreement. Of course being a candiate for admission is much different than being accepted, but at least the option exists. CU seemed to know ALL about DSN, and I have the feeling that they are keeping their eyes on what's happening at DSN.

    YAYAYAYAYA!!!!!!



    Best to students at DSN and elsewhere,
    Anne

    Thank you so much for the information! i just graduated from there and was a little worried about getting accepted into other programs.
    Also, CA will definetely accept nurses from DSN and endorse their licenses, even though it is not fully accredited!

    I am so glad this was a helpful post. I know that I can't be the only one concerned about my post-DSN career.

    Thanks for the California information RNnewgrad. I am actually from SoCal, and plan to move back there as soon as I finish my RN program. I will be contacting a number of schools and programs to find out what their position is on DSN grads. We were considering WA as well, but I am focusing on Cali now.

    Cheers,
    Anne

    Hi all,

    This is a little off topic--but here's some recent info I acquired.

    I might have to move to Nashville before school is finished (sniff, sniff.) I called Belmont University in Nashville, and the admissions coordinator told me that he would have to evaluate my credits class by class. He said he'd need to see a catalog from the school, and for clinical classes, a syllabus for each class. He also said that while he couldn't guarantee anything, the school looked "mighty fine" at first glance.

    Belmont does have a rule that if you get a "B" in Pathophysiology or Pharmacology, you have to audit the classes there, and if you get a "C", you have to retake them. (I'm SO going to be retaking Patho....might not be such a bad thing!)

    Hi,
    I'm from CA and will be attending DSON in April 2008. After I graduate from DSON i will be moving back to CA. I was wondering how did the process of Endorsement go for you ?
