Stephanie, I wish you well in your pursuits and don't want to be discouraging but the accelerated programs are looking for the a specific few that are really select. Don't let it keep you from pursuing it but I would say to apply to a 4 year program too, maybe seek some parttime work in a healthcare situation. I applied to an accelerated program local to my home (no option of going away with family and such) and was turned down. I am glad I had applied to another campus to the BSN 4 year too. So many accelerated programs are so small that there are only so many seats. I'd say get all your prereq's out of the way, maybe get some experience and by all means, apply to the program but don't get discouraged with a rejection. God bless!!
I am starting ns in the fall and the fundamentals class has about 4 required books and about 6 recommended ones. I will get the Tabor's but there are ones that include nursing math, other topics. Were these really handy or could you get them as you see fit during the semester? Thanks.
The answer should start out as a positive 3x2 (squared) because when you subtract your whole figure you will automatically subtract. Therefore you start out with the positive and it will be subtracted and wiped out. Does that make sense? Hope you feel better.
I don't know much about those specific schools but you might want to make sure that they are accepted at any place that you might want to apply for future education, like a community college or state school. Some of the "license" schools or more general schools don't seem to have the accreditation that a college or university has. I know Kent, Youngstown, Tri-C all have ADN programs. Good luck!
I am a really old returnee to the healthcare field. I have a degree in education with no prospects in that field where I live and went back for nursing. After doing my prereq's (with a 4.0) in all of them, I did not get into the accelerated program that I wanted. They seem like they were looking for experience in the healthcare field in addition to the gpa. I was devastated but am still going for the 3 year BSN. Good luck!
I don't know about the NYU program specifically but after applying to one in Ohio (I have a BS already) found that they are highly selective, and even having all the qualifications they wanted, still got overlooked. I have no healthcare experience other than real life with family, so maybe having an undergrad degree and healthcare experience? Wish you well....
The nursing major is a hurry up and wait situation like many other majors but it is hard to say what will get you there faster. Hypothetically you can get all your prereq's out of the way, be in the field they say you should be, have perfect gpa and still not get recognition into the accelerated program in colleges. As far as getting experience, I would second that.Get some experience in a hospital setting. Maybe you should get your name in one of the campuses' to get in their clinicals along with applying to the accelerated program. If you are not accepted, then you can have fallback and it may not take any longer if you have to reapply to the accelerated program. There are only 20 places in the main campus program according to the website so they are extremely selective.
Main campus is so big and the regional campuses have the advantage of smaller class ratios, lower tuition, and maybe shorter commutes. You also don't have to pay to park and walk all over Timbuktu. So I guess there are benefits to small and intimate. You also get to know the students and faculty better.
