Abrazel-

Did you check out the campus? I was typing my last post from my phone and I meant to write I didn't feel they could handle 60 students. I was curious what your thought was after visiting that campus. It's such a new program and I am nervous to pay 50k+ to a school that has the lowest NCLEX pass rate (this is the traditional MEPN program plus the BSN program in Milwaukee) of the several programs I'm looking at. With that being said, the hybrid version is intriguing to me still, but would still require me to move closer to their campus. Again, the students I've talked to are happy, but have only been in the program a little over a month, so Im curious to hear what your observations were.

Hi--

i I was incredibly pleased with my visit. The small size of the pleasant prairie campus was a concern at first until I was told how often you need to be on there , which is just exam days and simulation. If accepted, I will be moving to MKE to have access to main campus and all of the perks, and making the commute. He said a lot of students come often to meet at the smaller pleasant prairie campus to run through homework, etc. since pleasant Prairie does not yet have a NCLEX pass rate, I am going to go with Marquette University's. I personally liked the small knit size and felt that I would be able to meet my cohort easily and make friends. After visiting, I feel that they can hold the 48-62 they were mentioning after hearing all classes and groups for simulations are in a rotation, so you will be with 6-7 rather than the whole or even half the cohort. I am eagerly waiting to hear about my acceptance, my nursingcas was JUST verified today 😬

That's awesome that your application was verified on NursingCAS today! While I'm waiting, I did get an email from Marquette this morning to get started on CheckMarq, so hopefully that's a good indicator of the future. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Thanks for this post. I wonder if you have spoken with anyone from the financial aid office? This program looks ideal for me in many ways - but the tuition is steep, so I would love to hear what you have learned.

Hi dfinefish,

I haven't spoken with anyone in the financial aid office yet, but it looks like I'll be taking out loans for first 15 months, then hoping to get a fellowship and some scholarships for the rest. The tuition is a little steep at $50,000 (I know Yale's Direct Entry MSN is over $75,000), but then there are some accelerated BSN programs that are $30,000-45,000. I suppose it just depends on what you're willing to spend.

I have not spoken with them but this was on the acceptance letter...

As a regular degree student, you can be considered for such forms of graduatefinancial aid as tuition scholarships, graduate assistantships, and fellowships when you begin your MSN phase of coursework. During the first 15 months, you are eligible for other financial aid. Most financial aid award decisions are madewithin six weeks of the financial aid application deadline cycles: November 15 for spring semester, February 15 for thenext academic year, and April 15 for summer sessions.

If you have specific questions, you could call them directly. Sorry I wasn't much of a help!

If anyone who was accepted is wanting to connect of Facebook, let me know and I can start a group. I'm moving from Alaska and will be new to the area, so it would be nice to connect with other classmates before we start in August. By the way, CONGRATS to all that have been accepted!! :)
