Hi,

I am in the current cohort of the D-ABSN program. We are in our fourth class currently. It is ALOT of work so time management is key. There are daily (Monday-Friday) discussions w/ response to peers and assignments due at certain times of the day, on top of assigned readings. (multiple chapters daily). This is why it is impossible to work. Exams are usually on the weekend but you can take them at the time most convenient for you. Depending on which professor teaches the class will determine how many online face-to-face meetings we have. The staff is very supportive and our cohort is very tight knit so we help each other a lot. So far, everything has been fine with minor issues here and there but expected as being the first cohort. You MUST put in the effort and work to receive a good grade.

Nice! Sounds like we'll probably be classmates then! I'm currently living in the Chicago area, but will likely be moving to the Dallas, TX area before the clinical portion of the program begins. What about you?

Are you currently in the program in Dallas, TX? I live in DFW as well and will start in April in the second cohort.

Hey everyone! 

I just stumbled upon the new(ish) Emory distance ABSN program! I was so excited to finally have found a program like this since I live in a rural area and there aren’t many local options. Plus, relocation wasn’t an option for us.

I’ve still got a bunch of hoops to jump through but I guess I started to hesitate when I saw the $70k tuition!! Now, that may not be a lot to some of you but where we live that is a HUGE investment. I guess I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place in that my family could never afford for me to be in school for a regular 4 year program and even an accelerated program that is an hour and a half away is over 18 months. So although this would be the most expensive option it also is the quickest and would work well with my current situation.

So tell me why YOU want to go to Emory versus other options??

And if there’s anyone out there that has completed the prerequisite courses I’d love suggestions on where to take them online.

For anyone that’s in the program now how is it going? What’s your daily schedule like?

And lastly, there is an EMTcertification class being offered near me soon. Do you think this would be a good thing to do? I’d still have to get my CNA certification as well.

Sorry for the long post but thanks for reading this far!

Hi All! So glad to have found this thread and I’m hoping the earlier users from the first two cohorts still peruse it. I’m looking to find out more about what the experience has been like for those of you who have already started the program. What a school day typically looks like (times, M-F or all week, etc). I’m currently waiting on one final transcript to be received before I know they will even consider my application. And if all goes well, I am registered for my final prerequisites for the fall to be completed before the next cohort starts January 2020. I’d love to connect with you all who are in the program. Thanks and hopefully hear from you soon.
