    With most hospitals, they have in-house training for you to become an aide, well atleast in NYC. And just to give you a heads up, the program is really gonna be intense, so be prepared to cut your social life out for the next 18 months. Most of the nurses i know who took this route and some of the aides i work with now, have stressed that numerous times. Thats my i am enjoying these last few weeks of freedom before i have to get serious with school. Abby, good luck, hopefully we will meet in the program. If you have any further questions, post them and ill try and answer you back in a timely manner.

    Not sure, but if i was in your situation, i would just do it. Nursing programs are getting much harder these days to get in and longer wait list because of the influx of people applying. Before ABSN programs werent like the traditional programs, now they are. I was attending Dominican College in Rockland County and was suppossed to be in there program next month, its a 12month ABSN, but screwed over. Now for there class next May 2011, they require a pre-entrance exam. So if you get in, most likely you did, just tough it out.

    The clinicals are def in a hospital, so you mostly likely need a license and car asap. I work as a nurses aide and i think you should apply for the same. If your new to the health care field, it will def give you a step ahead of others. My union pays for a portion of schooling, so you should try and find a place that will pay as well. Im from NYC myself, so i dont know too much about Jersey and there hospitals. I would suggest to go to hospitals you know and look on there employment board on openings. They are always in need fo nurses aides or pca's so it shouldnt be a problem finding something.

    Who were you in contact with? The program cost around $56,000. I took chem, but got a C, so have to take it during the program and once you get in, you can only take the pre-reqs you need at FC no other place, thats what she told me.

    AN,

    I found out about the Bachelors to BSN through a fellow student at another college i was attending for there ABSN program. She found it advertised in the Nursing Spectrum magazine and end up bringing in FC's curriculum for there program. It starts May 24th and you graduate in November 2011. I sent all my material in Feb. Did you complete your application? If so, the AD of admissions told me that there were students who still have to do a pre-req or two and can do it during the program, you just have to take those classes at FC and now where else, but i think its worth the money.

    Im not sure what the traditional nursing degree program requires, in my case it was a 2.99, but my pre-reqs were A's and B's. Good luck.

    Hey MMR846,

    I recieved a phone call on Wednesday from the Associate Director of Admissions on my acceptance to the program. I am pretty sure that you will be accepted into the program, so dont worry. Keep me posted. Good luck.
