guys it very hrd here in hawaii to even get into a school. my situation puts me in a hard spot where if i dont get accepted to one school then i have other routes i can go but i pay a big hefty price in tution to go to that school.
here is my situation, i would appreciate it if you gave me your feedback....
1)...Kapiolani community college...ok currently i am taking my pre-req's for a ADN program in a community college. this CC i think requires you to have a 3.5GPA and take your NLN and score a 95 or higher, to even be considered for acceptance. each sememster 200 people apply and only 40 are chosen. tutiton cost is very low about $1500 for a full time student and this includes books.
i am discouraged because people with good grades have not gotten accepted and it is very weird that the 40 peopel that gets accepted half of them drop out of the program , maybe it is too hard or they cant afford not going to work because the program is very time consuming, mon-fri clinicals and class room lectures.
once you get into this school you will only need to maintain a C average or pass yoru nursing classes with a c or better.
after graduating i would have spent about $8000-$10,000 this includes books and tutition.
2)...university of hawaii... ok this university is hard to get into because they require a 3.7 GPA for them to even consider you and you have to score a 95 score or better in your NLN. this program will take about 2-3 years after pre-req's and co-req's. once your in the program you only need to maintain a c average or pass all your classes with a c or better.
also not too many people are accepted , 200 apply and about 40 people get accepted. this school doesnt have too much of a drop out rate ebcause it is not demanding and people usually work partimte jobs or have full time jobs while attending school.
after graduating i would haev spent about $25,000-$28,000 , this includes books and tution.
3...hawaii pacific university...this school doesnt require you to take a NLN and all credit are transferrable with no time limits on courses taken even though it is 15 year ago. this school accept you into there nursing program just as long as your GPA from the transferring school is 2.75 or higher. also this school only requires you to maintain a 2.5 or higher GPA while your in teh program.
but.....this school is a private school and it cost $651 per credit and most nursing course are 5 credits each class. full tiem nursing student pay about $7500per semester and this is without books and it takes about 5-6 semesters to finish the school of nursing.
when i do graduate from this school i will be in debt about $50,000-$54,000 this amount includes books and tutition.
so which school woudl be the best choice or route to go?
i need your help, sorry if my grammar
is off, but i am writing this from work and i am trying to write this as fast as i can.
