Hey all, I was also accepted to the Lewiston Auburn campus. I was also accepted to the ABSN at the University of Maine Fort Kent, so am now trying to figure out which school to attend between the two. USM gave me a substantial transfer scholarship
, which I believe would make it cheaper than UMFK— in fact, it would make it very affordable. However, at UMFK I would be done with school in only a year or so, as opposed to two. I ultimately want to be an FNP, so I want to get my BSN with some haste to get some work experience before the FNP! Unfortunately it seems that USM does not offer many nursing courses in the summer, so I wouldn't be able to graduate sooner by taking clinicals in the summer.
I was hoping to attend USM in Portland, rather than the LAC. I am wondering if we have the option of taking classes/clinicals there, or if we are limited to LAC. Additionally, I have not received an evaluation of my transfer credits, so am still waiting to make sure they accept my prereqs from my prior bachelor's degree.
