Thanks so much J-me for your testimony:) And way to go with that GPA:yeah:!! Did you go right into the RN program or did you sit out? I think our main thing is finding out if we are accepted or not. After knowing, we will do just fine. I am committed to giving it my all and all:)

I graduated on a Fri. from LPN and starting RN the next Monday. I would not recommend taking a break, you are already in the swing of things! Don't stress about getting accepted, I'm sure you guys will have no problems!:)

That's what I was going to do, keep right on going. Is the RN program exactly a year or a little over? Well, as soon as I know, everyone will know:D! Thanks again:)

The RN program is 15 months or 5 quarters. If you have pre-requisites you do not graduate any quicker, it just lessens your course load. The people that have them normally only take about 3 classes a quarter...unfortunately I didn't have any and I take 5-6 classes a quarter. That is equivalent to 20 hrs. at a regular college, so it is a very intense program (trust me!!). You can also do the RN in 18 months if you want a lighter load!

Thank you for starting this forum!!! Like you, I have been waiting since March to hear from Galen regarding my acceptance. I hope to start classes on July 27th too!! I did call a week ago and found out that the acceptance letters will be sent out in May. I hope to see you then!! Let me know when you get yours and I will do the same.

Graduated from there last May. I didn't think the program was too bad. Definately study, study, study. Microbiology will kick you in the pants LOL. Don't be afraid to ask for help either, that's what the instructors are there for. Oh, my RN program was 12 months as I was already an LPN and had college credit already. To do it all again, I'd probably do the 15 months. 3rd quarter kicked my arse.

RUMOR FYI: Rumor going around that the RN program might be going to 18 months. I personally think that it is BS because the RN program just went from 12 months to 15 months. I doubt they are going to change it again but you never know.

One of the main complaints from people in my class was that 3rd quarter was too much classwise. You had micro, mental health nursing, peds/ob, ethics, all in one quarter. Some of us suggested lengthening things from 12 months. Nice to know they listened. If they give the option of 15 to 18 months I'd take it. 12 months sounds good, but unless you have a lot of transfer credits it can easily get to be too much. Just my opinion.

I think if it does go to 18 months the first 3 months are just going to be pre reqs... so if you already have them done you don't have to go the first three months.

That would be the smart way to do it LOL. We always complained that the non-nursing classes should have been in the first quarter with the last three will the nursing classes. Microbiology was just the most intense class I've ever taken, and I've taken it twice once at KY State and at Galen. It might just help the feeling of class overload most of us had 3rd quarter. Nursing school is supposed to be tough, but I knew something was wrong when I couldn't get a B. Just a note...I've had the best grades ever in nursing school. I was one of those C-D students in high school and early college days. The fact I graduated on the President's List was amazing to me to say the least.

We had heard the 18 month rumor today and asked Dara about it....she said no way, it was staying at 15 or 18 whichever the student preferred. I have micro next quarter and am not looking forward to it at all!!!!!!!!! But thankfully they did listen and we only take 2 other classes along with it in the new 15 month program!

Question: (always lol) I plan on applying for January... when should I actually send in my application? Also, IF I was to apply for October and find it too soon to go to school after the delivery of my baby would I be able to change it January?
