Denver College of Nursing October 2020 Cohort

Posted

Is there anyone else on this website who has applied for the October 2020 Denver College of Nursing accelerated program? If so, comment below! Would love to start forming a community of applicants. I sent my application off last month, hoping Corona will not delay admission decisions!

Hi, I also applied! I submitted my app in February... also hoping nothing gets delayed due to the virus!

Hi 🙂 Thanks for the reply. Are you located in Colorado?! I currently live in Texas, I taught for a Summer in Colorado about two years ago and totally fell in love. Nursing school out there would be a dream come true!

I was accepted for the July 2020 cohort, but couldn’t justify spending $57,000. Good luck, everyone!

Hi! I applied for the October 2020 start for the traditional BSN program! Hoping to hear back soon and nothing gets delayed!

Same! I tired calling a couple of times to see if decisions would be delayed but no one was answering the phone. I guess we will find out in a few weeks!

As of now I'm not, I'm in Virginia, but we'll be moving back this Summer. My husband is from Boulder. But yes it is a beautiful state! I fell in love too

Hi! I also applied for the October 2020 start!

Best of luck! Happy to see a group forming here ❤️ first one to get their acceptance email must post on here so we can all start checking inboxes! Fingers crossed we will all be meeting in the Fall!

Yes hopefully everyone starts to hear back soon! Does anyone know how long this usually takes for them to get back to us?

What was the process like if you don't mind me asking?

I applied on the last night of the application period, December 31st, 2019, and received my acceptance email (I posted the email below) on February 7th:

Please read this email carefully and completely before responding!

Congratulations, your application has been reviewed by our Admissions Committee and you can now move forward with the application process for the BSN program starting July 6, 2020. The next step will be for us to arrange a time for you to come in for your interview and tour of the school. This interview should take around two hours. At this meeting we’ll review your application, tour the facility, meet with financial aid, cover all immunization requirements and you’ll get more in depth information on how everything works at DCN.

At the conclusion of our interview we’ll be setting up a time for you to come back within a two week period to finalize your enrollment paperwork and your tuition financing. Applicants that have already graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college do not have to take the HESI A2 entrance exam.

You need to respond to me via email no later than 4pm on Friday February 14 to set up your appointment as we have a lot of applications for this start. If you are no longer interested in moving forward with your application, please let me know that as well. You cannot defer your start date.

I typically meet with in state students Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. I start my first appointment around 10am and start my last appointment no later than 2pm. I’ll be meeting with applicants April 9 through April 24. When you respond to this email please let me know what days of the week and times during your normal week (not specific dates) that will work best for you under the parameters mentioned above.

You need to bring any official transcripts, immunization records, CPR and health insurance card with you (if you have them).

If you’re not absolutely sure that you’ll be able to finance the program as well as covering your living expenses (remember that government student loans and grants will not cover your costs) please contact the Financial Aid department and make sure you’ll be OK before you plan and confirm your appointment.

Again, congratulations on making it through the first step toward starting your program at DCN accredited by the ACEN, CCNE and regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. It might take a few days before I respond back to you. I look forward to meeting with you soon.

How much of the program needed to be paid out of pocket? What financing options did they give you?

For my first bachelors degree I never had to use student loans. I was planning on using the maximum amount of federal loans that DENVER College of Nursing would’ve let me use: $29,000. The remaining amount had to be paid by the end of the program either by cash, private student loans, and/or monthly payments with 0% interest. I was planning on just writing a check for the remaining $28,000. However, I just couldn’t get myself to think that was a good idea.

I also applied! The anticipation is killing me

Y'all! Let the count down begin : ) Tomorrow is May 1st, we are all so close to finding if we were admitted to the program. Best of luck to everyone!

I also applied for the October 2020 start. I got an email a few weeks back saying we’ll find out around May 13! Good luck everyone!

I hope you all have plans for paying the $56,000 tuition without working. I was accepted for the July 2020 cohort but declined after finding a cheaper school. Good luck!
