Hi, unfortunately, under the new regulations, you actually do have to have all of your prereqs before you can apply. This is recent, just started Aug or Sep 08. I was accepted into the July 09 cohort, I applied the last month before they changed the program. You used to be able to apply at any time, but they changed that. I took micro and A&P 1 and 2 at National and each class is 2 months due to the lab, but still, 6 months to finish is not bad. The classes were hard, but doable.
You can still apply as soon as you get your prereqs done though. That's the nice thing, there is no certain months to apply.
I kinda like the new process, at least this time you know why your application was denied and you can apply at least 4 times a year while before was once a year.
Hello Ladies, I've been a lurker on this site for several months and received a wealth of information from you all.....thank you. Actually, this post is what made me decide to apply @ NU. I too have my bio prereqs to complete and am enrolled in the July classes to be completed by Dec.09. They wouldn't let me enroll as a BS in Nursing degree student since I don't have all my prereqs completed as per the new regulations. I am enrolled as a BS in Public Health which will be changed once my prereqs are completed.
I for one rather pay the $1500 per class and get them over with in less time than taking at CC. I am taking my Soc & Libs requirement at CC, but other than that everything will be taken at NU.
To all of you that are in the nursing program, please continue to let us know how things are going. I know that once classes start you will be very busy but there is so much info that we gain from this thread, for example the PDA devices. That was very informative. :urck:
Good luck to all of you!
Samantha, what device with you be using for Nursing Central (Unbound Medicine)? What about you, Danielle? :)
Also, did you guys start reading the chapters?
Wow if you can get your Anatomy, Physio, Micro, Stats, etc done at NU that fast i'd say do it!! It took me 2 and a half years at Palomar College to finish all the nursing pre-reqs! (Just like you, Samantha!)
I'd be happy to answer any questions if you all have any! :) I know when I was beginning the application process I had a million questions! I learned so much just by reading people's posts on this thing!:[anb]:
I just CANNOT believe it's March 1st and that means I start nursing school NEXT MONTH... I still cannot get used to saying that...
PS- I got my 16GB iPod Touch today! yay!
Just saw your post, Diana....I got the books last week and WOWWWW how are we going to learn all of that in a month?!?
I know, Ashley... I also got them last week.... I'm frankly a bit intimidated about opening them.... But I guess I have to start... maybe tomorrow, after work.:icon_roll My full time job gets in the way, man! By the way, how do you like your itouch?
Haven't set it up yet, but I'll keep ya updated!! My CNA class ends on March 14 (that's the day I take the state certification test) and once I finish I'm gonna start reading. I am intimidated too!!!

Well, I don't think I will be getting a PDA. I guess it sounds nice to have the info right there, but I am pretty broke and just with the loan payments I will be spending enough, and quite frankly I don't think that it is a necessary purchase. The teachers did say that most if not all the hospitals will give us access to computrs, so if they change a patient on us at the hospital we can go and get the info from upbound med. that way. Also, most the time they will inform you of your patient info the day before and then you can research at school or at home. I guess I am old fashioned and not very tech savy. But I think I will mnage with out a pda. Then again once we start then I will know.
oh and I am so bad!!! I haven't had the money to buy the lad book or the APA book yet, and the other book I got I havent even cracked open, I guess you are right about the intimidation thing, but I better get on it. Hey have any of you gals taken the last ATI test yet?
SORRY last post I promise...what bank did you all apply to for your loans, and what did you all do for financial aid, I am really worried about this, I just got my bill for $1,335 in the mail yesterday for the orientation and I am stressing on what to do to pay for this! most of the scholorship deadlines have already passed...
hey girls....wow i swear this website will be a life saver for us :[anb]:, and sounds like we have so many of the same questions.
i am not buying the APA book, its cause we need to write a paper and they dont want us to have an excuse to not know how to write an APA style paper...thats what i am guessing anyway. plus i might already have one
i started reading the book and i am on chapter 4. i have no clue how we will do this in a month! im starting to read as much as possible so, hopefully, itll make april easier for me haha.
i am also not getting an itouch. i really want unbound medicine at my fingertips...getting a new phone could be worth it because itll have more than one purpose. ill give it some time in clinics to see what they really allow and what they dont. one student at the orientation said that she has worked in different hospitals and EVERYONE has a phone. so if its just a national university clinic rule its not something i want to put money towards right away.
and ashley asked my question too...WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL AID!!! i applied at school but dont really know if that has covered me or if i got anything yet. and really they couldnt answer my questions. how much is national REALLY? ive heard $40,000 but never seen it on paper. anyone gotten their loans yet? i applied once online but asked for like all 40 at once and was denied lol of course. so now im just curious how were supposed to go around getting 40 grand.
thanks girls............. and yay for us FIVE WEEKS TILL OUR FIRST CLASS!
