Okay, let's get to 2010.

The program is indeed highly competitive but that's what you get asking for an ASN. Just skip the ASN and go for the BSN. Many employers will look for the BSN over the ASN. If you have time for the frustration of an ASN you have time for the frustration of a BSN but in a more professional manner.

I was denied to the GPC program because the TEAS V said I could not read but excelled in math and science portion. If that is the case for others, please keep in mind that there are numerous schools in GA. The TEAS V results are only good for GPC if you take through GPC. Soooo, please do not waste any of your two chances on the entrance exam for GPC please do it directly through ATI. Now, I have one chance left to "learn how to read", with my high GPA and a geniune interest in Nursing. :yeah:

For those accepted for Spring 2011, are you going to be taking other classes besides the fundamentals 8 credit hours? I have to take 12 credit hours for my financial aid and was worried it would be quite a challenge to take 2 other classes + nursing school. Also since we don't know our schedules yet, I guess the other classes have to be taken online? I thought clinical rotation might be until 11PM at night or on the weekends depending on the assignment and shift? Thank you for any insight or information!

I too was worried about the 12 credit hours for financial aid and other related things. So, what I'm doing is taking SPAN 1002 (should be a breeze) and Fitness Walking :coollook:. I really don't have any other classes to take but I have to stay enrolled full-time (especially for tuition reimbursement from my employer). I would recommend taking classes that wouldn't put too much stress or take time away from the Nursing course/clinicals. At first, I registered for online classes. However, in my 4 semester experiences with some courses online, they turn out to be MUCH more work than a regular classroom lecture (and also cost more). Hope that helps! :)

Kier7141, Please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. I have completed my first year of nursing school here and I wish that I had gone somewhere else. About half of the teachers are just mean or they are taking out their insecurities on the students. Either way it sucks!! The administrators act like they want to help you but when it comes right down to it they don't and don't care. Once you're in you can't get out, no other school will take these credits. Plus it's only an ADN program and most hospitals will only hire a BSN. Then if you want to get into gpc's BSN program, they require you to work a yr in a hospital. Well, how are you going to do that if the hospitals don't hire ADN graduates. I have lost my self esteem and feel helpless. The reviews from 2006 are right on. Believe them!! I wish I had. If you don't care about your self-esteem and want to be treated like a child and have to just take things up the rear then go here. I have never been treated in such a way, and I can't believe I have to take it. I am a good student who tries very hard and has good grades, but who cares... they decimate you. Do not go here!!!
