Does anybody knows if columbus state university has a good nursing school...i have heard that you have greater chance of getting paid more and getting a job faster after graduating from a good nursing school that is well known....is this true and if so is columbus nursing school a good school?
Does anybody know..please help me out!!!
Moved to the Georgia state forum where hopefully you will get some answers
Hello, being that I live in Columbus, I can say that CSU is a very good school! It is also competitive, from what I hear. I am from Columbus, but I chose to go a different route and went to another nursing school away from home. I hear nothing but good things about the program, they have a high NCLEX pass rate, etc. I have co workers who went there, though. Have you applied yet? I hear getting in is sometimes no easy feat; GPA counts for a lot in your pre reqs, you have to take the NET test I think it is as well. They always have a waiting list too!
Oh, and as far as what school you went to and how that factors into getting a job, that I am not so sure of. What matter is that you can or cant pass the NCLEX, and get "RN" after your name. I know people who went to prestigous universities as well as lesser known ones and are new grads STILL struggling to get jobs. Honestly, I dont think it matters THAT much but you never know!
Thank you all so much..i have not applied yet...I am in a process of looking into different schools and applying.I currently attend Clayton state which also have a good nursing school too...but however i was advised to apply to so many nursing schools as much as possible eventhough i have a good gpa...i'm taking my net test this fall and hopefully i have a really high score to increase my chances.I have heard so many things about nursing schools which really makes me scared that eventhough i have a good gpa and test score i might still not get accepted...but this is what i really want to do so i dont mind moving away from home and go to another school away from atlanta
Hey Ameila, I attend CSU and was accepted in the nursing program for this fall 2009. i think its a great school especially the dorms.
Hey that's great..i have heard wonderful things about the program..do u know like the gpa required to get in and also the teas scores if u don' mind sharing it with me..i will love to still attend clayton for the nursing program ...oh yeah i have heard alot about the dorms..but i stay in the apts called clayton place close to the school...
Hey again I also applied to Clayton and was accepted, I didn't accept the acceptance because it was just a back up if I didn't get into my school's nursing program. I also didn't like that we had to pay for application but its okay I guess.. I have heard from my advisors that clayton nursing is a fairly nre program with good nclex rates, that'svery important when applying for nursing school. Columbu state nclex has never been below 95. I also applied to Kennesaw but didn't get in there.. My GPA is a 3.5 and I received a 86.28 on TEAS. Also I had great reccomendations any other questions feel free to ask! Oh and What is your gpa like?
Oh ok my gpa is not that high like u i have a 3.2..and i am taking the teas in september
