Getting into nursing school buffalo w/music ed degree???


Help! I will be graduating with an undergraduate degree in music education and am looking at going back for an associates degree in nursing in Buffalo!

I have a 3.8 GPA, CPR certification and some volunteer experience at the American Cancer Society.

Be real with me, is there any hope for me? I'm looking at Eerie community college and Niagara Community College, but will anyone take me? Looking in the buffalo area because my fiance lives there.

Yes, you will get accepted. NCCC is easy to get accepted into but ECC is tough. The question is, do you have the pre-requistes out of the way? Have you taken any science courses at all?

Look into Trocaire as well. A bit more expensive, but a great program. They also have a 1-2-1 program deal with Daemen so you can get your BSN shortly after

You should apply to UB's accelerated BSN program too. It's an affordable program and is only 12 months. If you already have a bachelor's degree and have a solid GPA like that it makes more sense to just go for the BSN upfront if you can. Other than that I second what the other posters have said.
