Quote from kimhaw
I am at UCA now and I have applied to their program twice with a 2.75 and 2.95 GPA but I have been waitlisted each time. So therefore I have basically given up on getting accepted there. Right now I am apply to UALR and Baptist . I am hoping I get in at UALR b/c I am not sure about finaid for Baptist. I know UCA has an excellent nursing program b/c I have friends in it. The only drawback I see about UCA's program that its 3 years in length. I prefer two or 2.5 years b/c I have spent alot of time (3.5yrs) trying to finish prereqs and get accepted into nursing school.
Do anyone have any info on getting student loans at Baptist?
Thanks for the information, kimhaw!
I've attended Career Nights at Baptist last year. They gave students lots of information about their program. I think you can get the information about student loans if you attend there.

My GPA is about 3.8. However, I've worried about any admission difference for UCA students and other school students. I'm a student at UCA now, but I finished my AA at ASUB. I just try hard for getting good GPA this semester.
If I'm a US citizen, I may go to Baptist. However, I cannot apply there. Because I have a F-1 visa, I have to go to college or university.
I try to apply UAMS and UCA. However, the chemistry makes me stay at UCA. UAMS does not accept General Chemistry II, and UCA accepts only General Chemistry II. This makes me give up UAMS.
Now I'm taking Nutrition, General Chemistry II, Medical Terminology
, Statistics, and Begining Badminton. What do you take this semester?
