    Greetings everyone. I just wanted to start a thread for anyone applying to CBU's ADN to MSN program for spring 2019 or for anyone who has applied in the past. I'm currently in my fourth semester (four of five) of nursing school. Anticipate graduating this December and hope there are others out there interested in the program as well.

    I had 85 points when I applied. The application period for spring 2017 was very competitive during the time. It's not always like that though, so don't worry. I purchased the husky rolling tool bag from Home Depot. If you sign up for the SMS alerts regarding sales you will receive a five dollar off coupon which I used. I would not recommend the 14 inch because you cannot fit much in there. If you typically don't bring much to campus, the 14 inch might be just right for you. However, keep in mind that nursing school changes a lot of habits so you might find yourself bringing much more than expected to campus. I would still purchase a rolling bag even if you have a laptop because you will need to bring binders, notebooks, other supplies, and possibly other books that aren't in ebook format. Wearing a backpack with all these items can hurt your back. Coursepoints offer the ebook online with the content so do not purchase the book AND coursepoints, it will be a waste. For example, if you are required to purchase fundamental nursing coursepoints, do not purchase a fundamentals textbook because the textbook will be available online with your coursepoints.

    Greetings everyone. I just finished my first semester of nursing school at RCC and I must say it was a great experience. My biggest tips are buy a good rolling backpack such as the husky rolling tollbag, purchase a printer if you don't already own one, SAVE MONEY NOW (you will have so much to purchase before the program starts.), rent books or purchase used books to save money, and develop/research organization tips for nursing school. Good luck you guys !!!

    Hello! I am also looking into the uop RN to BSN possibly since two of the universities that I want to attend for PA school will honor the degree. I am currently set to start the RN program at RCC this spring. Have you made a decision yet?

    How fast can you graduate with university of Phoenix concurrent enrollment work and how much is tuition with the discount?

    I know this is probably thinking way ahead. But do you guys think we can take the NCLEX the same month we graduate? I know paperwork has to be sent off and processed and such. But I'm trying to take the NCLEX as soon as possible.

    Are you guys in ??? One huge word of advice. Please start on immunizations now if you haven't done so already!

    I would pick the program that has clinicals at places you potentially want to work. RCC has a higher pass rate than Mt. Sac, so keep that in mind as well.
    Hey what kind of stethoscope were you required to purchase for the program? I know some go for the expensive Littman, but I wanted to know if the cheap one is okay?

    Hi guys, like a few people here, I applied to more than one program, and I'm so happy that I got accepted to RCC. I was also accepted to Mt. Sac. They're both great programs and I need to make a decision. If you had to chose between the two, and distance wasn't a factor, which would you chose? I started another thread, but didn't get any replies. I apologize if this is off topic here.
    which ever one starts sooner and ends quicker I suppose.

    For those trying to get into nrn 18 for the bridge program :
    The bridge program is changing its admission policy starting with fall. You will be given priority based on your score for the advanced placement test. It's not a super easy test either. Plus nrn 18 has a lot of homework. So just be prepared for it.
    What kind of stethoscope were you required to purchase for the program?

    I believe sciences must be complete prior to applying. General eds can be in progress. Call SON to verify. The point system is changing and I'm not sure if that still applies.

    Congrats! I wish I could have taken nursing 18 for advanced placement, but I was late and applied to the traditional program and got in. Best of luck in your journey!

    Congrats to everyone who got in!!! It's goes by sooo fast. I feel like I was just accepted and now I'm headed into my last semester.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask
    Did you need titers? If so, where did you get them done?
