Hey everyone, so 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. 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 please, anyone, 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 EMT certification 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!

I just stumbled upon this program as well!

I would love to do this as well, so much.  But I don’t know how I will give up work for a year.  I imagine it will all work out if I want it badly enough!  And I’m hoping there are good financial aid options, that really is a lot of money.

I failed my 2nd semester of my nursing program I was in, so I’m worried that would affect my eligibility.  I have a bachelors degree from 2010 and the standardized test I took for entrance into the program I was in is now 3 years old, so I hope they would accept it.  The only class I need is chemistry and I don’t want to take it if I don’t know it’s a sure thing, you know?  

Im going to reach out to them with my questions in the coming days, so I hope I get some promising info! :-)

Also, I would think the EMT thing wouldn’t be useful since you hVe to sign a pledge not to work while in the program.  If you got accepted right away, you wouldn’t be able to put it to use.  Then you will be an RN before you know it!

I just found out about this program. It's very convenient and a year is not that long compared to other programs. Anyone know when the open applications are?

@jebeh2018 have you heard back from them?  I applied in June for January 2020 and still haven't heard anything.  Well, I received an e-mail at one point to fill out a page stating where I reside.  And a few weeks ago they updated the list of pre requested in my application to match my transcripts.  I've been trying not to e-mail them and be patient, but it's been so long and no word!

@NurseKev8 Same here. I was between ABSN-MSN but switched my application over recently to D-ABSN. I do have two things pending Chem Lab and Nutrition, but all others should be checked off since it was checked off before. I should be exempt from TEAS since I have Masters. I called them but I will not anymore and just be patient at this point. I am also applying for Jan 2020. 

Do you have CNA? Prereq complete?

@jebeh2018 well it sounds like we are in the same boat! (Except I took the TEAS because I don't have my Masters)

I don't have a CNA, but I will be taking care of that soon.  I have all of my pre reqs done except, like you, Chem and Nutrition.  Everything else is marked complete on my application.  So I'm taking those 2 classes this fall.

@NurseKev8 Yep I am taking CNA course now and will be done in a month. I did speak with admissions and she informed me on last week it wasn't required but "highly" recommended. I am taking chemistry lab and Nutrition next month. 

Hopefully undergrad gpa doesn't hurt me. Did good in prereq...So I shall see. It is my first choice.

@jebeh2018 highly recommended... I guess I should take care of that sooner than later.  My undergrad gpa isn’t great either but I did well on the TEAS so I’m hoping that helps.  I really get the sense that they take everything into consideration when making decisions.... I just hope the waiting game is over soon because the suspense is killing me.  

Good luck to you! :-)
