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.
Best to students at DSN and elsewhere,
