    Hello out there!

    I recently received my acceptance letter to Platt College for the Jan. 4 start date, class #16. I am VERY excited. I am VERY, VERY excited but very nervous too. I have not met with financial aid yet, which is where a lot of my angst lies. Is there anyone out there that can give me some insight? I realize every situation is unique; however, I am trying to get an idea of what to be prepared for.

    I met with the Denver School of Nursing and they had decent options, such as, federal aid (which doesn't cover the cost,) then an alternative loan which most cases require a co-signer, the if that doesn't work, you can take an in-house loan which you pay for as you go. Does anyone know if Platt offers a similar deal?

    I meet with them next week, but here I am, can't sleep, hoping someone can ease my fears a little.

    Also, would love to share in the excitement with my future classmates if there is anyone else out there who has been accepted for this class. The TEAS test was FREAKING HARD for me. Not so much the Reading and English, but the math about killed me.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    I'm also accepted to the May 2010 cohort, and I'll be moving from Oregon. I thought it would be nice to live in the student housing, since it's furnished and pretty close to campus, but I called and was told there probably won't be openings until August. If anyone wants to maybe look for a summer sublet together, hit me up! I'm guessing we'll probably get more info as it gets closer, but I'm really excited to be accepted, since Regis was my first choice.

    Does anyone know anything about the RN to BSN program. I am looking to move to the Denver area this summer after I graduate from my ADN program. I'm hoping to find some sort of job and go to school part time to get my BSN. Any suggestions would be welcomed!

    Hey does anyone have any insight on the RN to BSN programs at Northern Colorado University or University of Colorado at Denver. I'm wondering how these programs work and if it is possible to work full time while doing these classes. Any insight would be amazing.
    Thanks in advance!

    I was wondering what the book situation is like in class. Do we need to buy the latest editions of the books or is it more of a on your own study out of the book and class is more lecture. Do you think I could get away with having older editions of the books in most classes?

    Thanks Nick

    Ksoon2beinCO - there is a new thread I responded to about the program... sorry don't have the link, but you can search Pueblo 2010 and find it. Also, there are quite a few people from Springs in our class and they carpool. They were able to get some of their clinicals up in Springs too.

    mkggirl - be careful in looking at Arapahoe though if you have a dog restriction, some parts have a ban on 11 breeds! Jefferson County is just to the west of Denver and has no breed restriction. I live in Lakewood (the city just to the west of Denver) and it takes me about 10-15 minutes at most to drive to DSN. I start in January, good luck!!!

    I was looking for tuition information but DSON hasn't updated their website since last March. Does anyone have tuition info?

    I don't remember the exact number, but they didn't increase as much as they thought. It's $43k about, maybe $43,500, somewhere around there. That's for the BSN btw, I don't know how much the ADN is, but I would guess only $1k or $2k more than what's posted like the BSN.

    Thank you RNtwoBe I will look into those areas first. Are you currently attending DSN? If so how far into te program are you?

    Hi there! Nope, I start in January, so excited!!! A friend of mine started in January of this year and she loves it! She's gotten great feedback from her clinicals about the caliber of DSN student, and they get students from all over, including CU and Regis! Where are you moving from? What are you looking for?

    I am moving from Aspen. I am looking for a townhome through a private owner, since those are the only types of places to take my pet. I am really unfamilar with the Denver area. I moved from Pittsburgh about a year ago. My search is not going well.
