June CEP applicants

Has 1 years experience. Specializes in Labor and Delivery.

I know it's still a ways off but I was SUPER excited to see the application session was available for registration tonight! So I thought I'd start a thread for those of us applying in June.

I'm applying for CEP with upper Iowa and I can't wait. I've already been in contact with the Iowa advisor and she has been SO incredibly helpful and nice answering my millions of questions and setting me up with a game plan for classes.

So who else is applying?

Woot woot! Im going for ASU and am beyond excited even with the 2 months before the application session:)

I haven't contacted anyone from ASU yet but the advisor at Estrella says I shouldn't have any problem getting a spot at ASU.

I had planned to go to the summer fast track at GCU this summer but they just cancelled the whole dang thing on Monday so I'm floundering and panicking. I just spoke to the nursing advisor over at Williams Field today and she explained the CEP program to me.

Can you tell me why you chose Upper Iowa over the other two programs? I had never even heard of them before so that kinda weirded me out! And they don't require patho? That seems odd.

I just express mailed my transcript in so that I can hopefully get my application in asap!

I chose UIU for a couple reasons. One, I needed less classes to be able to apply for them then I would need for NAU or ASU. Two, the nursing advisor told me that it is a really great program through them and she highly recommended it especially because of my class requirement situation (only needed 2 extras for them but more like 4 or 5 for asu/NAU). Three, since getting in touch with the UIU advisor via email to ask questions about pre-req's and in progress classes she has been so helpful, always emails me back in a timely manner even if just to say she is checking with someone else to give me correct info.

Also, UIU has a campus in Mesa so I know it sounds weird at first that it's Iowa but they have an in person campus in Mesa for lots of their programs, not just the BSN.

Hope that helps!

Oh and also, things that asu and NAU require like stats and other things are built into their RN-BSN program that you do during the CEP so it's part of their schedule.

Hello,I have remained pretty quiet on the GCU hopefuls blog, I am interested in your experience with ASU.

I have a 3.8 and my hesi was 96. Were your stats in the same area? How difficult was the process?

Can you tell me more about Williams-field? If you have all the prereq's how long is the wait?

Those are very good scores, if you are applying for the CEP I think you'd have a very high chance of getting in!

I haven't applied for the CEP yet, this thread is for those of us who are going to apply at the next session which is in June but I think there's a few people on the AZ board that are currently in a CEP program that may be able to answer your questions.

Williams-Field is the Chandler-Gilbert CC campus where I spoke to the nursing advisor. She was really helpful. If you have all the pre-req's you fill out both applications (MCC & CEP) and attend info sessions and I think everything gets turned in June 2. The other groups have known within a few weeks. Then we all would have a few "pre-classes" (2-6 units) to do in the fall and then we'd start the RN program at the CC in January. Two years to being done with the RN at that point and then generally another semester for the BSN classes. But each university agreement is slightly different.

Thanks - that helps me out!

Hey joelle71, that is good info, thanks! What are the classes that you take in the fall? I'm planning on signing up for the Gateway + NAU cep. I have all of my prereqs done after this week (ahhh Micro final next week!) and am meeting with an advisor on Thursday to get things rolling. Only thing I was worried about finding was my high school diploma but it has been dug up by my parents in a dusty old box :). Any tips for what to bring for my first advisor meeting? I'm going to fill out the application ahead of time, I've sent ASU transcripts over, requested RIO/MCC to send them intra-college to them, and paid for a HESI transcript to be sent to them. And I need to dig up my fingerprint card...

Hi everyone,

I will also be attending the CEP application session in June. I'm hoping I will be accepted to the NAU fast track option. I'm still undecided as to which MCCC school I want to select for my block work though. Chandler-Gilbert would be my first choice because it would be minimal travel, but I've heard there have been problems there especially during block two. I have heard that many students have transferred out... Has anyone heard anything similar? Mesa and Gateway seem to carry a good reputation with students, at least on the east side. I wish I had credible information to make an informed decision. Any input would be helpful. :) Thanks.

Can you explain what the fast track option is through NAU? Its just that you finish your BSN + the Maricopa work in 2 years right?

Haha I've gotten so much mixed information. The GWCC advisor told me at the information meeting that they didn't let people doing the CEP stack with the fast-track. I was hoping to do a program that only took a year and a half like GCU, sounds like this might still be an option then!

The fast track the person is talking about is for the NAU portion of the CEP. You can find it on the website they posted, it lays out the courses of study for fall entry, spring entry, and the fast track under the NAU brochure.

June is just around the corner! I don't know about you guys but the closer it gets the more excited I get too. I know it's just the application session but still...the thought of applying and getting accepted for an official start date is just so exciting to me!

Anyone else joining the June CEP application club?

I should be! I'm going in tomorrow to hopefully get the first stage of my application turned in so I can then go through the CEP steps :). Re-took the HESI on Friday because it took less time to do that than to get the HESI scores sent over to Gateway. Fingers crossed they've received everything I need for the initial Maricopa Nursing application!

I am attending the application session in June at EMCC and I am SO excited! I have been waiting for this for such a long time and can't wait to actually hand them my application!

My first choice will be GCC/NAU traditional, with EMCC as second choice.

Hi everyone. I'm glad that I finally found a post for the June application session. I too will be applying in June, on the 3rd specifically. I'm so ready to get into a program that I'm applying for all 3 universities (1st choice ASU, 2nd NAU, 3rd UIU) with GWCC as my first choice for the MCCC & Scottsdale for my 2nd choice only because I work at Scottsdale Health care Osborn (Honor Health now), but I'm honestly open to going to any campus lol. I'm just ready to be a nurse!!
