Michigan State has a program now? I was thinking of applying to UMich's accelerated BSN, but hadn't heard about MSU's. I'd love to find out more about it!
Yes they are just starting the program this year. The application deadline is March 11th for Fall semester. The application requires 3 letters of reference, an essay, a resume, and the other normal application information. You need to have taken anatomy, physiology, stats, psychology, growth & development, microbiology, chemistry, and nutrition for pre-reqs and I believe the minimum gpa is 2.5. I have not heard how many people they are accepting but the program only admits people for the fall, the program is 3 semesters fall, spring, summer. They say to be prepared for 6-8 hours per day in class or clinicals and the cost is around $20,000 for tuition/fees.
I got my BS degree from MSU and was thinking about applying but am not sure if I want to add $20,000 to my student loans. Another thing I am concerned about is that MSU's Nursing Program is not accredited by the NLNAC and I am not sure how big of a role that plays. Does anyone have any ideas how big of a deal being accredited is?
